Here's a quick wrap of the Star Wars bits that came out of D23...

1. Star Wars Land (Officially named Galaxy's Edge) was revealed with an impressively detailed diorama. It is set to open in both Disneyland and Disneyworld in 2019.
2. Behind the scenes sizzle reel is released for The Last Jedi.
3. Battlefront 2 "Behind the Story" reel shown, giving fans new insights into the depth of story created around the Imperial protagonist.
4. Star Wars hotel unveiled for Disneyworld, promising a Westworld-like experience for patrons. "Galaxy's Edge" is also officially announced as the name of the theme park.
5. New augmented reality (AR) experience from Disney and Lenovo promises to put you in the Star Wars universe, including training as a Jedi with a lightsaber controller.

Now that all this is behind us, what's in store for San Diego?

2. Is it possible we'll see a new trailer from TLJ, or will Disney be giving the just-released sizzle reel time to marinate?
3. Will there be any announcements about the Han Solo movie, despite Lucasfilm having all but pulled out of the Con?
4. Will Hasbro make a splash with news on the TLJ 5POA waves or anything on the TVC2 front?
5. Will anyone care that the Chargers left San Diego?
