[SERIES] NEW ‘STAR TREK: PICARD’ TV SPOT RELEASED

The fans are going nuts about the latest released TV spot. And the reason to that is that it features a new version of Irving Berlin’s Blue Skies song. It was sung by Data in 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis. This could mean that fans can expect the character’s fate to finally be revealed after his sacrifice in the mentioned movie.

Star Trek: Picard will be more different than Star Trek: Discovery – “very thoughtful, psychological portrait in a lot of ways… Things have changed for [Picard] and changed him in some ways, and yet he is so deeply and fundamentally still Picard.”, Star Trek: Discovery creator Alex Kurtzman revealed.

Picard will have its U.S. debut on January 23, 2020, on CBS All Access and will be available on January 24, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video, which by the way is available in over 200 countries and territories.

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ is an animated show within the established Star Wars universe. Episode II, also known as The Clone Wars, serves as its starting point.

The series aired for five consecutive seasons until 2015 on Cartoon Network. Netflix then picked it up for its sixth season.

It is said that fans were unsatisfied with the ending of the show (which back then was the sixth and final), demanding the producers to continue the series and give it a proper finale. Then the seventh season was officially announced during last year’s Comic Con.

Now that Disney got its own streaming service, Disney+, up and running, all the episodes are available there.

The new episodes will premiere on February 17th, a reveal made public by a promotional video on Disney’s official site.

The Clone Wars follows the wartime days of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. The Clone Wars bridges the gap between The Original and Prequel Trilogies of The Star Wars Saga and brings new characters to the forefront of Star Wars canon, including Anakin’s apprentice Ahsoka Tano, and Captain Rex.
