The Star Wars News Roundup for September 1, 2017

Star Wars news for the week of September 1, 2017

The purpose of this roundup is to put all the Star Wars news from the week of September 1, 2017 in one location. If you read this each week, you should be able to converse fluently with any Star Wars fan on everything from the latest Star Wars developments to the latest toys. And maybe you’ll even share with them something that they might have missed.

Let’s get to it!
