This week, IGN is hosting two special editions of their weekly Watch From Home (WFH) Theater series, celebrating the major anniversaries of fan favorites The Empire Strikes Back (40th anniversary) and Revenge of the Sith (15th anniversary), and featuring Star Wars celebrity guests Cameron Monaghan (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s Cal Kestis), Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars: Clone Wars’ Ahsoka Tano) and Rahul Kohli (star of iZombie and Star Wars megafan).
“Now that we’ve seen the Siege of Mandalore arc in The Clone Wars, I’m excited to go back and watch Revenge of the Sith,” said Ashley Eckstein. “I feel like it will be a completely different experience knowing what is simultaneously happening with Ahsoka, Captain Rex and Maul.”
IGN will be streaming the episodes of Watch From Home Theater on IGN.com, YouTube.com/IGN, YouTube.com/Cinefix, Facebook.com/IGN and Twitter.com/IGN and will be taking fan questions with their guests LIVE during the events. To participate, fans can drop their questions into the chat platforms of any of the video streams, or head to IGN’s Discord server to participate: https://discord.com/invite/
