We’re still far away from the 2019 opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the twin expansion lands that will be opening at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, but the narrative groundwork for the new parks is already being quietly set up. Specifically, the new novel Thrawn: Alliances from Timothy Zahn will send Darth Vader and the Grand Admiral together on a mission to Batuu, which io9 notes is the same planet that will serve as the setting for Galaxy’s Edge.
Disney hasn’t revealed too much about the planet — only that it’s a remote trading port, and “one of the last stops before Wild Space” — but taking the chance to build out the lore before the park opens is a smart way to get fans interested ahead of time. Thrawn is already a…

I saw the Grand Xboy 8-inch Bluetooth Speaker ($ 179) from Xoopar at CES and was able to try it for a while. It looks like a kid’s toy but the sound is quite suitable for adults, thanks to 2×10 watt speakers plus a 3 watt subwoofer. It also operates for ten hours before needing recharging. The 360-degree coverage means you can place the Xboy in the center of the room and it can be the life of the party.
The speaker looks like a robot, and with the cartoonish stance, it’s also reminiscent of the Sphero Interactive Spider-Man, which I’ve also reviewed. It comes in a variety of colors, and there are smaller versions in case you want to save a little cash.
The Xboy connects to just about any device using Bluetooth or the included 3.5mm audio jack and cable. I really like it, but these days, many speakers in this price range come with Alexa integration, so I would have liked to see that.
- Bluetooth and 3.5mm audio jack
- 2x10W peak power plus 3W subwoofer for bass
- 10-hour battery life
- Cute design
- Assorted colors
- No Alexa integration
The Grand Xboy Bluetooth Speaker from Xoopar makes serious sound while looking cute and cuddly.
