The Destiny Newsreel - Week 21


1. INTRODUCTION:
Written By CLAUS STAAL

A while back The Hyperloops started the weekly newsreel (originally called "Star Wars Destiny News Round Up") to make sure that all the various content from the week were easily accessible for anyone who did not have the time to go through all the pages of the internet to dig them out for themselves ... life is busy and sometimes a bit too busy. After The Hyperloops' decided to not run this feature regularly anymore, we made an agreement with them to take over the service. That's now The Destiny Newsreel ...

We aim at including all of the news from the previous 7 days, and although we try and stay on top of what's being released, we might be missing out on stuff, do let us know in the comments on Facebook if we missed your news and we'll add it continuously!

Also, please let us know in advance if you are planning to run a livestream, then we'll try and advertise it here!

NEWSREEL PERIOD:
May 17 - May 24, 2019.
