Fans of the “Star Wars” series have been waiting a while for Luke Skywalker to make his first appearance in the “The Last Dragon,” the first episode of “The Force Awakens.”
The animated short is set in a distant future where humanity has been wiped out by the mysterious virus, but it is set to debut on Disney XD on Monday.
A Disney XD spokeswoman said the show is “currently in production.”
Disney XD says the new series will air in the summer and that it will debut in 2019.
Disney XD also said it will release a new Luke Skywalker short “The Adventures of Luke Skywalker” and a “Luke Skywalker: The Legend Begins” mini-series.
