What’s New on Netflix this Summer!

Here’s a little tidbit that you may not know about me…I’m a big Star Wars fan.  I was a kid when all of the original Star Wars movies came out and I remember watching them over and over again, including the Ewok movies!  But I have to admit I didn’t really care for the newer movies, episodes 1 – 3.  So when I saw that Star Wars: The Force Awakens was coming out and all of the characters that I loved so much, like Chewbacca and Hans Solo, were returning I couldn’t wait to see it!  As soon as it was in theatres I went with my family and we loved it…it was better than I could have imagined and it left me wanting to see it again, and hoping for more sequels!

Now this leads me into some very exciting news from Netflix Canada!  The Star Wars universe has expanded so viewers in Canada are now able to stream Star Wars: The Force Awakens!  My family was so excited to learn that this movie was available to watch right at home (and I was happy because we didn’t have to buy the DVD!  Score!).  So this weekend, on a very rainy Sunday afternoon we flopped on the couch to watch it again.  It’s such a good movie.

And to help celebrate, Netflix is sharing a super fun recipe idea with you…Wookiee Cookies!  Seriously, how cute is this cookie?!  All you need is your favourite roll-out sugar cookie dough, a gingerbread man cut out and some shredded coconut!  Get the kids together and you’ve got a super fun summer baking project!

And if that’s not enough of a Star Wars fix for you, you can also catch up on the last days of the Galactic Republic with the entire Clone Wars series and feature film that are streaming right now on Netflix Canada!

May the force be with you.

  1. Those cookies are so cute! I didn’t know you were a Star Wars fan. My husband is also a Star Wars fan and has been trying to get me into Star Wars forever. I still haven’t seen the newest movie but I heard it’s good! If Netflix adds it here in the US I’ll be sure to watch it. 🙂
