May The Fourth Be With You! Looking forward to a Year or two in Star Wars Audiovisual Entertainment

DisneyDisney+LucasFilmMay the 4th be with youMay the force be with youMay the fourth be with youStar WarsStar Wars Day+-

For a change I will be skipping the usual Star Wars Merch - Lego, Figurines and the like. Instead I am focusing on the wealth of forthcoming Disney / Lucasfilm / Disney+ content - where no less than 15 New Franchises have been announced, as well as the continuation of the well-loved Mandalorian Series.

Unlock Net Zero

Fairly recent 2019 legislation has bound the UK to achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050 - as applied specifically on this occasion to the nature of domestic housing and buildings.
