72 perc 323. rész part of the Skywalking Network

This whole show is devoted to your questions! Richard and Sarah have been podcasting for almost 8 years, and in that time we’ve gained new listeners and shared many, many stories. So now it’s time to turn the show over to you and your questions. Thanks to the Skywalkers in our Facebook Group, we had many questions to choose from. Perhaps you haven’t heard how we met. Or how we work and live together so well (or not!). This is your chance to find out more about us. Here are some of the questions we answer:

 

  • Alan Sanborn:  How did you two meet and did you both share a common interest in Star Wars and in all things Disney before you met?
  • Rex Gordon: Do you think Galaxy’s Edge should’ve been based on the more recognizable Mos Eisley?
  • Cary Gordon: Do you guys have any fandoms you love that the other one is not a fan of.
  • Bryn MacKinnon: What are the best, worst and surprising parts of working and sharing fandoms with your spouse?
  • John Zancanaro: What do you do for work besides your podcasting? 
  • Chickaphant: If you could live in any of the universes that you’ve a fan of, which one would it be and what occupation would you have?

321: WandaVision - Think Outside The Hex
155 perc 321. rész part of the Skywalking Network

Welcome back to Westview and WandaVision! This first Disney+ Original Marvel series is a mystery/romance that kept fans guessing for nine weeks on the fate of Wanda Maximoff and Vision. So now it’s time to debrief and decompress with our friends Tricia Barr and BJ Priester, both founders of FangirlBlog and Hyperspace Theories, to analyze the storytelling and world-building of this marvelous show. We also discuss how risky WandaVision was for Marvel, film score and music analysis and our overall thoughts. Where will these characters will go from here? And where are Billy and Tommy!

 

Raya and the Last Dragon premiered on Disney+’s Premiere Access and in theatres on March 5th. Richard and Sarah share a spoiler-free review and help you decide whether or not to purchase Walt Disney Studios’ latest animated feature film. Raya features the voices of Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico from The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker) who turned in a fantastic and emotional job as Raya. Akwafina voices Sisu the Dragon.
Story Synopsis: Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. However, when sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned, and it's up to Raya to track down the last dragon and stop the Druun for good.

STN 320: Corey Dee Williams & Stephen Costantino - Podcast Party with Jabba’s Henchmen!
122 perc 320. rész part of the Skywalking Network

It’s a Podcast Party with Corey Dee Williams and Stephen Costantino as they reminisce about their time playing Jabba’s henchmen in Return of the Jedi! Corey played Klaatu and also doubled for his dad Billy Dee as Lando Calrissian. Stephen played a Gamorrean Guard - both had a blast during the filming of the Sail Barge Battle back in 1982. So many great stories, they even share tales that the other didn’t know!

 

Corey and Stephen are musicians, and they are working on a project called 3-Dee Nucleus, collaborating with about 30 musicians. It’s a tremendous project! Check it out, as well as Cloud City Funk, a completely awesome music video rife with Star Wars actors and cosplayers.

319: Great Muppet Appearances
95 perc 319. rész Part of the Skywalking Network

You had such a great response to last week's episode on The Muppet Show, that we decided to extend the Muppet celebration. Yeeeeaaaaaaaaayyy!! Richard dug deep and found clips of the Muppets and Jim Henson as guests on other shows like The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Joan Rivers Show, Arsenio Hall and lots more. We have to warn you, some topics and language are more risque than we’ve had on the show before. These are late night talk shows!

After one week, we've binged about 12 episodes of the 1st season of The Muppet Show. Since this is the first time Sarah has seen the show, she has some revised thoughts and opinions from last week. Moving forward, we will check in every week or so as we continue our Muppet Show rewatch.

So many Skywalkers chimed in with fun responses to last week's episode, so we share a TON of your comments in Skywalker Shout-Outs.

Check out the links in our show notes to watch all the Talk Show clips you heard on this episode: http://skywalkingthroughneverland.com/319-great-muppet-appearances/

315: Greg Hildebrandt on his Art, Inspirations and Star Wars
84 perc 315. rész Part of the Skywalking Network

Artist and illustrator Greg Hildebrandt, of Brothers Hildebrandt fame, sits down with us to discuss the famous Star Wars poster, his artistic inspirations and so much more. There is no other image that brings you back to the classic days of Star Wars than the legendary poster of Luke holding his Lightsaber above his head, Princess Leia with her blaster at the ready, and the LOOMING ominous helmet of Darth Vader floating in the background. 

 

 

This poster was illustrated by brothers, Tim and Greg Hildebrandt, back in 1977, but you may also recognize their artwork from the best-selling Lord of the Rings calendar, The Harry Potter magic card decks, Star Trek and Marvel Comics, the Shadows of the Empire trading card set, his recent series of Pin-Up Beauties, and several pieces for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Not only a storyteller in paintings, Mr. Hildebrandt tells amazing stories and shares his artistic inspirations with us. See all of his artwork at SpiderwebArt.com.

Now to hear the totally ridiculous but true story of Greg, Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando’s squirt gun fight and the events that lead up to it, you must be a member of the Skywalking Force. And yes Michael’s pet/buddy, Bubbles works his way into the story!

314: The High Republic & Goodbye 2020
128 perc 314. rész Skywalking Network

Star Wars: The High Republic is here! Mike Celestino (Laughing Place / Who’s The Bossk Podcast) and Drew Kaplan (Star Wars Maven) join Sarah and Richard on a spoiler-free discussion of the first three High Republic novels. They also share highs, lows and personal highlights of 2020. GOODBYE 2020 and welcome 2021! Keep reading below to learn more about The High Republic.

Star Wars: The High Republic

The High Republic is a collection of interconnected stories for adults, teens and kids from a variety of publishers including Disney/Lucasfilm Press, Del Rey, IDW Publishing, and Marvel. The initial books and comics come from fan-favorite authors such as Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland, Daniel José Older, Cavan Scott, and Charles Soul. 

These stories are set 200 years before the Skywalker Saga, when the Jedi Order and Galactic Republic are at their peak. Think of the line Ben Kenobi tells Luke in Star Wars, “For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights have been the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy…” THIS time period is what Ben was referring to as told to us by Michael Siglain, Director of Creative Franchise at Disney–Lucasfilm Press. The High Republic is established in the Core worlds, but places like the Outer Rim are considered the frontier.

Classic Marvel STAR WARS Comics #27: "Return of the Hunter!"
78 perc 407. rész Skywalking Network

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #27 “Return of the Hunter!” is perhaps the BEST issue so far in this comic series!! Bounty hunter Valance appears, bringing with him all the melodramatic feels of his half human, half cyborg self. We were blown away by the resonating themes and action as Valance confronts Luke, goding him on with insulting name in the galaxy, "droid lover!" Luke and Threepio have some great buddy moments together too, and the three characters are pitted against each other in a final confrontation with a surprising end. Richard and Sarah discuss the comic and find FTOOM! Fast Facts (classic comic things that appear now in Star Wars books, comics and films) - including Valance appearing in a NEW and currently ongoing Marvel comics series Star Wars Bounty Hunters.

Show Notes:

 

Title: "RETURN OF THE HUNTER"
Release Date: June 26, 1979
Writer: Archie Goodwin
Artwork: Carmine Infantino, Bob Wiacek, Petra Goldberg
Cover Art: Carmine Infantino
Editor: Jim Shooter, Archie Goodwin

 

Synopsis: This time Luke is hunted by the bounty hunter, Valance (That we originally met in issue 16). Forced to live as a cyborg due to injuries sustained from an aerial torpedo, Valance's mission is to find Luke Skywalker. Not only is Luke a droid-owner, but he also apparently treats them as equals, which Valance finds repulsive. 

 

Meanwhile, Luke has taken C-3PO with him and is mapping out the perimeter of the Galactic Empire's most recent blockade. He deftly maneuvers his ship out of the way of an oncoming Imperial cruiser and hides out on the planet of Junction and also looks for a  trading post so that he can find parts needed to make repairs to R2-D2. 

 

Luke and C-3PO arrive at a salvage yard where they are confronted by Valance and a battle is underway! Will this confrontation end in an emotional struggle? Stay tuned and find out!

55 perc 311. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

We celebrate Dave Prowse, the man behind the Darth Vader mask; and share our thoughts and your comments on The Mandalorian S2 - Chapter 13 “The Jedi”. SPOILERS AHEAD.

 

On 11/29 the world received the sad news that David Prowse had passed away at the age of 85. Not only was he the onscreen Darth Vader in the Original Trilogy, he has had an incredible career beginning in 1962. We share a summary of his career including film highlights. 

 

Then it’s time to talk AHSOKA and the amazingness that is The Mandalorian S2 episode “The Jedi” directed by Dave Filoni. 

 

Synopsis:  Mando follows Bo Katan’s tip to find a Jedi by heading to the planet Corvis. There he finds Ahsoka Tano!! Ahsoka and Mando team up to free the city from an Imperial remnant Magistrate - Morgan Elsbeth, and we learn Baby Yoda’s name and a bit of his backstory. 

 

We get into our thoughts on Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka, Baby Yoda’s name, Easter Eggs in this episode, the name-drop of THRAWN and all of our Skywalker’s comments. And if you haven’t yet, please read this entire Vanity Fair article featuring interviews with Dave Filoni and Rosario Dawson, which also addresses the allegations surrounding Dawson and her family. An eye-opening read.

In the summer of ‘81, Disneyland featured a band that mashed up KISS and Star Wars that sang about “Jailbait”! It was called HALYX, formed by Disney Record execs to play at the Space Stage in Tomorrowland and hopefully capture a bone fide record deal. On this episode, we speak with Matthew Serrano, the director of the documentary, Live From the Space Stage: A Halyx Story. You can watch the documentary on YouTube.

 

This fascinating piece of Disney history lives on in the DeFunctland YouTube Channel. Matthew also directed the mini documentary, Remain Seated Please about two guys and their passion for boldly going where no guest had gone before - backstage of the EPCOT attraction Horizons.

Classic Marvel STAR WARS Comics #26: "DOOM Mission!"
61 perc 397. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #26 “DOOM Mission!” is the finale of a 2-part storyline involving Luke and Leia exploring shady business surrounding the planet Yavin and discovering a hidden Imperial base run by Baron Tagge. You're in for a treat with this rousing issue featuring death-defying action, Leia gaining strength through a good cry and Luke using the Force as a guide. Richard and Sarah discuss the comic and find FTOOM! Fast Facts (classic comic things that appear now in Star Wars books, comics and films.)

Title: "DOOM MISSION"
Release Date: May 22, 1979
Writer: Archie Goodwin
Artwork: Carmine Infantino, Bob Wiacek, Petra Goldberg
Cover Art: Carmine Infantino / Bob Wiacek
Consulting Editor: Jim Shooter

 

Synopsis: Luke and Leia are being attacked by two TIE fighters. Just as the situation appears hopeless, X-wings arrive and destroy the two enemy fighters.

 

Once Luke and Leia get back to the base, they inform General Dodonna about the TIE fighters cleverly entering the gaseous atmosphere of Yavin. Since Yavin's atmosphere is too thick for conventional signalling, they deduce that the House of Tagge and the Empire have developed some new signalling technology and set up a launch station within the gas giant. Luke goes on a mission to retrieve one of the signalling units from a downed TIE fighter, and R2-D2 is critically damaged in the process. 

 

With no other choice, Luke sets out in a captured TIE fighter, fitted with the new signalling unit, through the atmosphere of Yavin to the House of Tagge Launch Station within the dangerous Yavin atmosphere. Now, Will Luke survive this Doom Mission? Stay tuned to find out...

We go back to 1987 with Dan Madsen! Over Memorial Day weekend in 1987, Star Wars was celebrating its 10th Anniversary. To commemorate such a milestone, Starlog Magazine held a convention in Los Angeles called, Starlog Salutes Star Wars–A 10th Anniversary Tribute to George Lucas and the Galaxy Far, Far Away Which He Created!” We prefer the title – Star Wars Celebration 0.

Only a few thousand fans attended, as opposed to the tens of thousands that attend these past Celebrations. I was there and, another big Star Wars fan was there, a fan who would rise in the ranks to become the founder and president of the new Star Wars fans club and publisher of the upcoming Lucasfilm Fan Club magazine, Dan Madsen! On this episode we will listen to a selection of the George Lucas Q&A Panel, and comment on his answers. What predictions and statements came to be? What was George's answer to a pointed question, "Why is there only 1 woman in Star Wars?" George's answers may blow your mind.

Meanwhile, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker arrive at the trading world, Centares, to trade in their ship for a less traceable craft since The Empire saw them. 

As they leave the planet they discover that a House of Tagge Mining Explorer is on its way to Yavin. Knowing the Tagge's ties with the Empire and fearing for the security of the Rebel base on Yavin 4, they decide to follow them and investigate further. 

They discover that the Mining Explorer is transporting Imperial TIE fighters to Yavin and hiding the fighters in the thick gaseous atmosphere of the giant planet.

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #24 “Silent Drifting” is a stand-alone story featuring the early days of General Ben "Obi-Wan" Kenobi. This is the first time the SWEU delved into the Galactic Republic! But with a name like "Silent Drifting," is the story good? Chris Alexander (Star Wars Origami) joins us on our journey through this classic Marvel Star Wars comic from 1979.

Title:"SILENT DRIFTING"
Release Date: MARCH 27, 1979

Artwork:Carmine Infantino,  Bob Wiacek and Petra Goldberg
Cover Art:Carmine Infantino / Bob Wiacek

Synopsis:After Han Solo skillfully pilots the Millennium Falcon to destroy two TIE fighters patrols, Princess Leia mentions that Jedi pilots developed that same maneuver. She recounts one particular event involving Obi-Wan Kenobi.

In a flashback we see Kenobi, traveling as a passenger on a pleasure cruiser, and is notified by Captain Quasar that Merson pirates have been spotted. The attacking ships are quickly destroyed in a maneuver set forth by Obi-Wan, but now he suspects the Mersons to have been lured by a signal from within the cruiser. The passengers quickly form a mob and  start pointing fingers, but Kenobi is not as quick to judge without proof. 

Now Obi-wan has to battle the mob inside and the attacking ships outside! Now, how will Jedi Knight Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi bring peace to the galaxy?

In the meantime, Chewbacca is leaving the main event of The Big Game with Han Solo, who was believed to have been killed in the event, now reveals he is alive. The two make their way to the Millennium Falcon and leave The Wheel just in time to confront Darth Vader's Star Destroyer. Who lives? Who dies? And who has the Flight into Fury?

In honor of its 40th Anniversary, this episode is all about publicity on The Empire Strikes Back, with special guest Craig Miller (Lucasfilm Publicity 1970s-1980s). We talk about how the publicity campaign was a pioneer for its time, ushering in a new way of marketing movies that continues to this day. Some of these include a 1-800 number to speak with your favorite Star Wars character, articles in Bantha Tracks, and The Muppet Show appearance. Craig was largely responsible for all content of Bantha Tracks, the first Star Wars fan club magazine, and talks about the lead-up to TESB through its pages.

We dedicate this episode to the memory of Charlie Lippincott, who just passed away on May 19th. Mr. Lippincott worked as the Senior VP of Adverstising, Publicity, Promotion and Merchandising at Lucasfilm, and was a mastermind of promotion.

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #21 "Shadow of a Dark Lord" features...you guessed it...Darth Vader! This is his first appearance in Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics since Issue #6. "Shadow of a Dark Lord" is the 4th chapter in a 6-issue story arc featuring Luke, Leia, Han, the droids and Chewbacca on The Wheel - a floating casino in space. After being separated for several issues, our heroes are starting to reunite in preparation for the biggest threat yet - Darth Vader himself!!

Release Date: DECEMBER 19, 1978
Writer: Archie Goodwin
Artwork: Carmine Infantino and Gene Day

Synopsis: Now in this issue, that has lots of Disney-sequel foreshadowing, Princess Leia escapes from Simon Greyshade - the administrator of the casino in space known as - The Wheel. Leia has found Luke, who has now recovered from his trance-like state after facing his most dreaded fear - Darth Vader! 

 

Meanwhile Greyshade has secretly sent his Security Force to recover the money that the Empire had stolen from The Wheel.

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #18: "The Empire Strikes!"
53 perc 342. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #18 "The Empire Strikes!" is the beginning of a new story arc featuring our favorite heroes - Luke, Leia, Han, the droids and Chewbacca. Luke passes out, Han and Leia bicker, and C-3PO buffs up and becomes a superhero! We also see a new location that reminds us very much of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures location - the Wheel! Only in Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics, The Wheel is a floating Casino in space, free of Imperial occupation. 

Show Notes:

Title: "THE EMPIRE STRIKES!"
Release Date: September 26, 1978
Writer: Archie Goodwin
Artwork: Carmine Infantino and Gene Day
Lettering: Rick Parker
Cover Art: Carmine Infantino / Bob Wiacek

Synopsis: Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, 3Po and R2 are in the millenium falcon when Luke Skywalker suddenly passes out during a Jedi training exercise. They drop out of lightspeed to get him medical help, but run into Imperials, who chase the Falcon to a brand new location - The Wheel - a huge gambling center in space. The rebels scatter on The Wheel, the Empire is in pursuit, and that’s where this issue ends.

Pop culture suffered a loss on July 24th when Rutger Hauer passed away at 75 years old. He was most notable as Roy Batty in 1982’s BLADE RUNNER with Harrison Ford. He was also in BATMAN BEGINS, Smallville, SIN CITY, THE HITCHER and NIGHTHAWKS with Billy Dee Williams!

To enhance the immersive feel, each local has created their own story as to why they are working at Black Spire Outpost, as well as how they feel about the Resistance and First Order occupation, and what they know about the legend of Luke Skywalker.

78 perc 252. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

To Infinity and...TOY STORY 4! We get into a fun review and discussion of this final(??) installment in the Toy Story saga that began in 1995. Where were you in ‘95? Sarah was in middle school and Richard had already graduated college. Along with TOY STORY 4, we also talk our favorite and first vintage toys, including Evil Knieval and MEGO Batman toys.

TOY STORY 4 has lots of awesome characters, Easter eggs and music - this is a spoiler-filled discussion so make sure you’ve seen the film before tuning in. Bryn MacKinnon (Window To The Magic) shares her thoughts on the film as well, and brings a mom's perspective.

Skywalking To Batuu

Culture POPCast #2: Composer Ryan Shore on Star Wars and Julie Andrews
25 perc 331. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

ON THIS EPISODE: Composer Ryan Shore (Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures, Julie’s Greenroom) shares his process working in the Star Wars universe, as well as composing with Julie Andrews! These stories are priceless.

This is the Culture POPCast where we have conversations, interviews and games revolving around pop culture from the vintage era to today. Today is the second in a series of episodes focusing on one-on-one interviews we were able to record at Wondercon 2019 with several creators working in the TV and film industry.

Ryan Shore was particularly happy to talk about Julie’s Greenroom, which is a Netflix Original series that is basically Julie Andrews with muppets! Ms. Julie teaches performing arts workshops to kid puppets of every shape and color, with the help of her assistant Gus at the Wellspring Center for the Performing Arts. The goal of the show is for all the “kid puppets” to put on their own musical performance by the end of the series. Ryan was able to work with Julie Andrews directly, and I asked him what he learned from this amazing woman.

Ryan has also been blessed to work in the Star Wars universe. He has a challenge composing bite-sized nuggets that go along with Lucasfilm’s YouTube series Star Wars: Forces of Destiny (2-3 minute episodes) and Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures (1 minute episodes). In the case of Galaxy of Adventures, the name is longer than an episode! Ryan talks about scoring for these shorter shows.

Peter Mayhew was scheduled to appear at Fan Expo Dallas that weekend, May 3-5. Teresa Delgado was there and witnessed the touching tribute to him. Fan Expo Dallas turned his signing table into a memorial with books to sign and set it up for donations for the Peter Mayhew Foundation. His Q&A Panel turned into a Tribute panel.

We’ll have conversations, interviews and games revolving around pop culture from the vintage era to today.  We won’t have a regular schedule for now, we’ll just put them up whenever we have content.


On this episode: Go behind the score with the Emmy-winning Dynamic Music Partners!

They are best known for ‘Batman Beyond’, 'Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,' 'Justice League,' and 'Teen Titans.’

At WonderCon 2019, I had the opportunity to speak with Michael and Kristopher about their process and some of their new projects. I recommend listening to the entire interview here, as it contains musical examples as we talk about them.

  • NEW “Skywalkers Rise” TeePublic design. We were so inspired by the new title for Star Wars: Episode IX - THE RISE OF SKYWALKER and the implications of this title and trailer.

Tim Donaldson is the youngest actor in Star Wars: A New Hope - at 5 years old he played a Jawa! He was in the right place, right time - elementary school in Death Valley, CA in 1976 - when George Lucas needed pick-up shots for the Tatooine desert. It’s a fascinating story!

117 perc 235. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

Our conversation with actor/stunt double, Bobby Porter, is one for the pop culturists. Bobby shares stories of working on Revenge of the Jedi, Newsies and Battle for the Planet of the Apes! Bobby also worked as a stunt double for Eliot (E.T.), John Connor (Terminator 2), Young Bruce Wayne (Dark Knight Returns), Young Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street 5) and so many more. Don’t miss the heart-warming story he tells about working with Robin Williams on Jumanji.

With so much Star Wars Resistance news, it’s time to catch up with the series! The Mid-Season Trailer got us really excited about the show again, and starwars.com just announced there will be a Season 2 in Fall of 2019. (Our Resistance Flyby episodes have ended, but we will still share some thoughts about particular episodes on Skywalking Through Neverland). On this episode we discuss “Secrets and Holograms” and “Station Theta Black.” The mid-season begins on the Disney Channel on Sunday 1/13, and so we’ll finish out this show talking about the new trailer.

Resistance Flyby: "The Children From Tehar"
52 perc 308. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

All Wings Report In for this STAR WARS RESISTANCE FLYBY of "The Children From Tehar"! This week, we discuss S1 E06 as the story delves more into the Star Wars universe. We've introduced all of our main characters; Kaz, Tam, Yeager and Neeku; and their relationship to each other. Now it's time to connect Star Wars Resistance to the overall Star Wars Saga. This episode is the beginning of that connection. We get mentions of Kylo Ren! Captain Phasma makes another appearance. And a mysterious symbol from Tehar keeps popping up. We also meet the children from Tehar - Kel and Eila.

Richard calls out Creature Appearances. I talk about musical moments, including one having to do with this mysterious symbol. We also share our first thoughts, questions raised by the episode and our favorite moments.

"The Children From Tehar"

Directed by Saul Ruiz
Written by Paul Giacoppo

In need of credits to fix a broken compensator part, Kaz turns bounty hunter and intends to find two missing children to claim the necessary credits. Meanwhile, Captain Doza speaks to Captain Phasma and learns that the bounty for the children was set by The First Order. Phasma claims that they are only trying find the kids of a high-ranking family in the First Order, and sends the gold stormtrooper, Commander Pyre, to The Colossus to collect them.

Now we are moving past introducing characters, and seeing some backstory. Hype Fazon has a bigger role! Voiced by Donald Faison, Richard and I couldn't help but delight in seeing his character come alive onscreen after meeting Donald at the Star Wars Resistance Roundtable.  Richard calls out classic creature appearances and classic sound FX. I talk about musical moments.

"Fuel for the Fire"

Directed by Bosco Eng
Written by Eugene Son

Kaz meets a new group of friends lead by Jace Rucklin (voiced by Elijah Wood). Jace isn’t the true friend he makes himself out to be, however. He has an ulterior motive which includes stealing Yeager's hyperfuel. 

"The High Tower"

Directed by Steward Lee
Written by Stephany Folsom

Kaz’s mission as a spy kicks in as he discovers that The First Order has come to the Colossus. Major Vonreg attempts to persuade Capt. Doza to utilize their help in eradicating pirates, ultimately putting the Colossus in the hands of the First Order, the plan that was set forth in the Triple Dark episode.

Like most new Disney shows, our first Flyby is a two-parter - first, we discuss and hear clips from the Resistance Roundtable both Richard and I attended, representing JediNews and Fangirls Going Rogue respectively. We were able to be a part of an intimate roundtable in which we asked questions of the voice actors and executive producers of Star Wars Resistance. These included Christopher Sean (Kazuda Zee-ono), Donald Faison (Hype Fazon), Bobby Moynihan (Orka), Suzie McGrath (Tam Rivora), and EPs Athena Portillo, Justin Ridge, Brandon Auman.

Next, we get into the series premiere: “The Recruit, part 1” and “The Recruit, part 2”. All Wings Report In and let us know what you thought!

Fly-BYE for now, Skywalkers.

Classic Marvel STAR WARS Comics #17 with Randy Martinez: CRUCIBLE!
91 perc 287. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #17 “Crucible” has a LOT of parallels to Solo: A Star Wars Story. Unlike many of the vintage, action-packed Star Wars comics, this one follows one character, Luke, on a character-building journey complete with womp rats, Beggar’s Canyon and Skyhoppers. What’s not to love?? We tackle this comic with Star Wars artist Randy Martinez.

Show Notes:

Title: "CRUCIBLE"

Release Date: August 22, 1978

Writer: Archie Goodwin, Chris Claremont

Artwork: Herb Trimpe, Allen Migrom

Coloring: Marie Severin

Cover Art: Dave Cockrum, Bob McLeod

Synopsis: While Luke Skywalker is piloting the Millennium Falcon through space, his mind flashes back to his life back on Tatooine...at Biggs Darklighter’s farewell party, Luke races his best friend in his T-16 skyhopper through the twisting maze of Beggar's Canyon. Suddenly, they are attacked by Sand People. While the others try to hold off the attack, Luke and Biggs rush off to warn nearby residents of of the danger in their area. Biggs is wounded and Luke has to take him in his skyhopper through the dangerous and impossible caverns of Diablo Cut to get him to safety. Having succeeded where other have failed, Luke knows he is meant for greatness!

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comic characters are starting to show up in various forms of Star Wars media! From Forces of Destiny to a new comic book “Star Wars Adventures Annual 2018” and even Solo: A Star Wars Story. If you know classic characters, you’ll see them pop up everywhere.

We bring you up close and personal to Mark Hamill and his Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Ceremony, which took place on March 8, 2018. We were able to get a great spot at the front of the barricades, and some face-time with Kelly Marie Tran, Billie Lourd, Kathleen Kennedy, Rian Johnson and the Hamill clan. Whoever said getting up super-early was a waste of time is totally wrong!

Din, lead singer of the band F-105, is to release their self-titled debut album and their 2nd single “Desert Planet”. Their songs are heavily inspired by Star Wars themes and destined to become earworms! We talk with Din about his Star Wars fandom, his inspiration and Mortis.

Then Mark Newbold from FanthaTracks tells us about his trip to the ice planet of Hoth, or as he calls it - Finse, Norway. Every year there is a gathering at the Finse hotel that includes visits to the actual Hoth shooting locations, as well as guests who worked on The Empire Strikes Back. Bucket List item!!!!!

 

205: Star Wars Rebels Series Finale
104 perc 205. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

Star Wars Rebels has come to a close. For the finale, we invite Sal Perales (Kanan in the #RogueRebels family of cosplayers) to discuss the series finale and the special screening held at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. The evening concluded with an hour-long Q & A with Dave Filoni, Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar, Steve Blum and Taylor Gray. We will discuss plot, characters and certain Q & A questions, so SPOILERS AHEAD!

During the final end credits of Star Wars Rebels the voice of Chopper was finally revealed. For 3 long years Eliza Peralta kept the truth under wraps per Dave Filoni who whispered the answer to her at SWCA. She is here (along with her father, Ric Peralta) to tell us what exactly Dave said which made her the SECRET KEEPER!

With all the excitement of Star Wars Rebels, we didn’t forget the special Teaser Trailer that dropped this week: MARY POPPINS RETURNS! A glimpse of Emily Blunt as Mary, Lin Manuel-Miranda’s new character, a famous kite...what did we think?? Is the magic still there for this sequel to the beloved Mary Poppins? We discuss.

Classic Marvel STAR WARS Comics #16 with Randy Martinez
77 perc 273. rész Skywalking Through Neverland

#BlowItOutYerRetros! Quite possibly our favorite line from our favorite green bunny, Jaxxon, in this Classic Marvel Star Wars comic! Richard, Sarah and Star Wars artist Randy Martinez tackle this Classic comic, as well as share some thoughts on The Last Jedi. There are some surprising similarities between this comic and the latest film.  

Show Notes:

Title: "THE HUNTER"
Release Date: June 27, 1978
Writer: Archie Goodwin
Artwork: Walt Simonson, Bob Wiacek
Coloring: Bob Sharen
Cover Art: Walt Simonson

Synopsis: This issue begins a brand new arc as Valance, the Hunter, destroys the medical station on Telos-4. When he and his crew of mercenaries hear a patient talking about Han Solo, the boy, and the droids, Valance jumps to conclusions thinking this must be Luke Skywalker! Since there is a big reward for the capture of Luke and Han, Valance follows old favorites Jaxxon and Amaiza to Aduba-3. How hard will it be to take down a couple of second rate bounty hunters and a few farmers in order to apprehend his prey? Valance is in for a big surprise!

200: The Last Jedi Score - Kylo Ren

We did it, Skywalkers! 200 Episodes! Time to investigate the music of The Last Jedi. Moments we loved, moments of silence, and Kylo Ren’s new motifs. John Williams has created another masterpiece in his Symphony of Star Wars. And since the maestro and The Last Jedi soundtrack was nominated for an Oscar, we go over the Star Wars and Disney nods and snubs in the 2017 Academy Award nominations announced this past week.

We also have storytime around the campfire, where we will read to you, “Chewie and the Porgs”. What was Chewie doing in TLJ while Rey was training? How did he and the Porgs bond after he tried to eat one of them? Well, grab a cup of green or blue milk and join us.

It’s a Skywalker Celebration! Many of you recorded and wrote messages for the milestone 200th episode - so listen for them throughout the show!

199: Rian Johnson, Paul Warren and Space Gary
108 perc 199. rész

This episode contains exclusive audio from Rian Johnson, plus a fantastic interview with Creature Performer Paul Warren (sometimes known as skinny Steve Rogers, the Quidditch playing Harry Potter and Varmik from Star Wars: The Force Awakens) But these days you can see him in Star Wars: The Last Jedi holding none-other than - Space Gary! He has so many stories from the sets of these films, so listen in to hear about behind-the-scenes movie magic.

Our exclusive audio of Rian Johnson comes from a screening of American Graffiti at LACMA (LA County Museum of Art) where they invite a director to choose a film that has influenced them. For this Director’s Series LACMA hosted a screening of the film, followed by a 45 minute discussion with Rian Johnson. He talked about the influence of George Lucas, films like American Graffiti and what led Rian to make the decisions he made while writing and directing The Last Jedi. It’s fascinating.

John Williams will be scoring Episode IX, plus the theme to Solo: A Star Wars Story!! Time to chat about the maestro and what this means for the Star Wars Universe.

Never Land on Alderaan!

Classic Marvel STAR WARS Comics #15 with Randy Martinez
92 perc 15. rész

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics is back from our Summer Hiatus! In this episode Richard, Sarah and Star Wars artist, Randy Martinez cover issue #15 - Star Duel! - where there are no pants in space.

Title: "STAR DUEL"
Release Date: May 23, 1978
Writer: Archie Goodwin
Artwork: Carmine Infantino, Terry Austin
Coloring: Janice Cohen
Cover Art: Carmine Infantino, Terry Austin

Synopsis: Crimson Jack's battlecruiser is fully operational and waiting for Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon to exact his revenge. Now Han has to make a deal that will exchange Jack’s navigational charts which were secretly downloaded by Chewbacca, with parts on Jack’s cruiser that will enable a safe getaway for his crew which includes Luke, Leia, Chewie and the droids. How will this hand-off go down between two space pirates?

With so much Star Wars content coming out these days, did you ever think that maybe some designs and locations were inspired by these comics? Over the last 14 episodes Sarah and Randy laughed at Richard every time he brought this up. But now we are seeing evidence in LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. And doesn't that new dreadnaught Star Destroyer from The Last Jedi look awfully familiar?

Before we move onto the story of Star Duel we had to talk about a recent Marvel Star Wars Comic panel at Terrificon. Comic artist, Howard Chaykin, brought up the impact of the Star Wars comics in the comic industry. Howard said that prior to STAR WARS, there were artists and creators, but after STAR WARS, it was all about BRANDING.

Who agrees with that statement from Howard Chaykin? Listen to our view points and tell us what you think. You can view the full panel below (moderated by author Ryder Wyndham; panelists: comic writer Roy Thomas, Charles Lippincott and Howard Chaykin.) Big thanks to The Dorkening for posting this on Youtube.

Step In Time: PETE'S DRAGON
80 perc 250. rész

We’re stepping back in time to talk PETE’S DRAGON (1977) with Anthony Fox (MousePire Podcast). Along the way we compare and contrast with 2016’s PETE’S DRAGON and marvel at what made it past the censors in the 1970’s. Several listeners wrote in with their comments and memories of the film.

Fun Fact: Jim Dale (who plays Dr. Terminus) reads all the Harry Potter U.S. versions of the audio books and he is incredible. Lends new credibility to the Dr. Terminus of PETE’S DRAGON.

If you’ve never seen it or haven’t watched in awhile, here’s a plot refresher:

Pete is a nine-year-old orphan who escaped from his brutal adoptive parents, and now wanders the New England coast with his only friend - a cartoon dragon named Elliott. They find a new home in Passamaquoddy, Maine, and live with Nora, a lighthouse keeper, and her father, Lampie. All is not well in this little fishing town when the shady Dr. Terminus shows up and wants to cut Elliott up and sell for medicinal purposes. And non-stop hilarity ensues!

STEP IN TIME: Remembering Disney's Matinee Movies is a spin-off show where we look back at the Disney live-action films of yesteryear. If you are already subscribed to Skywalking Through Neverland - do nothing! This show will appear in your feed. Have fun reminicing with us.

103 perc 179. rész

Mark Hamill gets an honorary street, Michael Kramer (The LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures composer) stops by to chat and we say a fond farewell to Imagineer Marty Sklar.

Skywalker and photographer Brian Sims brings us exclusive audio and his first-hand account of Mark Hamill receiving his honorary street name in San Diego on “Mark Hamill Day” - July 30, 2017. Brian was able to ask Mark Hamill a question face-to-face!

We are so excited to celebrate the release of Season 2 of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures with a very special interview - Emmy-nominated composer Michael Kramer!

Michael Kramer and Sarah try to sign major and minor chords - it’s just an entertaining interview.

Russ Flores (author Seen, Unseen Disneyland) is back! Though this time for a sad reason - he has come to commemorate the life of Imagineer Marty Sklar. Head of Imagineering, creator and contributor of all Disney theme parks around the world, this man is a legend. Luckily, Russ has met him several times and shares fond memories.

174: Skywalking through the Clone Wars Micro-Series
99 perc 174. rész

MINI-SERIES CONTINUED - We discuss Genndy Tartakovsky’s STAR WARS: CLONE WARS micro-series as part of our lead-up to FORCES OF DESTINY. We are joined by our book reviewer, Jocasta Drew (Drew Kaplan of StarWarsMaven.info) and Skywalker Nitzan Harel for a great discussion on Part 2 of this ground-breaking animated series. (Part 1 can be found here) Padme’s snow bunny outfit, Asajj Ventress’ death(??) and Mace Windu’s ability to wield the Force.

Father’s Day garnered two exciting experiences we want to recap!

  • A visit to Walt’s Barn resulted in an interview with legendary Imagineer Bob Gurr (Autopia, Haunted Mansion, Matterhorn, the Monorail). Walt’s Barn is a historical building that’s free to visit on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month in Griffith Park. You can ride the train, rub elbows with Disney legends including our Fairy Podmother Margaret Kerry, and see where Walt Disney himself used to shave, live and work.
  • We finally experienced Trials on Tatooine in IMAX VR at the IMAX VR Centre in Los Angeles. Yes! We got to hold virtual lightsabers and it was awesome!

173: I. Am. Speed. CARS 3
104 perc 173. rész

CARS 3 rolled out on June 16th, 2017, so we called on the BIGGEST Cars fan we know - Teresa Delgado (Disney Vault Talk / Fangirls Going Rogue)!! She also happens to be a latina from Texas, eerily similar to Cristela Alonzo (voice of Cruz Ramirez). So we have thoughts and feelings about the messages of this film.

The Cars 3 coverage continues as we bring you amazing insight from the Cars 3 Press Conference Richard and Sarah attended in Anaheim last week. Teresa also joins us for this enlightening segment, in which Cristela Alonzo becomes a star and Kerry Washington sums up the film in a candid sentence. Who cries during a Press Conference? Teresa does!

Things We Want To Share:
Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle - Universal Studios Hollywood. Richard and Sarah attended a preview of this projection light show, and describe the experience. We also talk with the Senior Director of Entertainment Production, Stephen Siercks on the making of this experience. How much involvement did John Williams have? Find out!

Synopsis: Quarg and the Dragon Lords are still at battle. Han is believed dead after the crash which enrages Chewbacca causing him to attack Luke! Quarg continues the struggle to pull down Crimson Jack’s giant stolen star destroyer with his sonic-jammer.

Meanwhile The Dragon Lords have rescued Han and taken him to a secret underground cave. The leader of the Dragon Lords tells Han that Quarg's jammer is driving the sea serpents mad and slowly killing them. Han agrees to help if they agree to help him in return by salvaging the Millennium Falcon.

Governor Quarg has found Princess Leia hiding within the Millennium Falcon and sets to use her demise as an example to her friends. Luke reunites with Han and fills him in on his plan that will do away with Quarg and the sonic-jammer, and, will help save the sea dragons...

It’s a Superhero Extravaganza! From WONDER WOMAN (2017) to Summer of Heroes at DCA, we’re hooked on a feeling. The new ride, Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission: Breakout! just opened at Disney’s California Adventure, along with a whole slew of Avenger activities, food and shows. Naturally we had to check it out and report back. Anthony Fox (MousePire Podcast), Bekah Goodman (Bekah's Buttons) and Josh Taylor (Network 1901) joined in our discussion of all the new experiences. Here's a playlist of all the great things you can check out at Summer of Heroes, including a meet and greet with Groot!

Celebrate 40 years of your fandom with Skywalking Through Neverland on the Podcast Stage! At this interactive stage show we had a slideshow presentation with pictures depicting different moments in Star Wars fandom, from 1977 to 2017. We asked for those present if they had any stories, and several came up to share.

Randy Martinez (Star Wars Artist) joined us for a mini-segment of Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics. He lent his artistic expertise to Comic Book Cover #14, as well as an ad that didn’t look quite right.

In Things We Want To Share, Dave Parfitt (Adventures By Daddy) joined us to showcase Give Kids The World, a charity you can still donate to right now, right here.

We finished off the show with a tribute to Carrie Fisher - all the kids came up on stage and sang “Celebrate the Love” - the Life Day song Princes Leia sings in the Star Wars Holiday Special.

All in all, this was a special event, we had over a hundred people join us for the Live Show. We had the 7:30pm Saturday time slot - the last show of the night, so we took a bit longer than one hour! I recommend you watch the show on YouTube above! Enjoy.

Star Wars Celebration Orlando may be over, but we’re still celebrating! Immediately after the convention, several Skywalkers met up to talk about their favorite moments, dissect the trailers and more.

Skywalkers:

We dissected STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI trailer, the STAR WARS REBELS Season 4 trailer, the tear-jerking Star Wars 40th Anniversary panel and our various Podcast Stage panels. Who had 2 chance encounters with Dave Filoni? Who got to talk with Timothy Zahn for a full 15 minutes? How many Skywalkers graced the pre-show stage at Star Wars Celebration? These stories are a priceless account of our collective adventure through fandom.

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #13 with Randy Martinez
84 perc 13. rész

In this episode we look at 1978’s Star Wars #13: ’DAY OF THE DRAGON LORDS!’. Is this a “filler episode”? Why is Chewbacca about to kill Luke Skywalker?? Randy Martinez gives us an update on his Star Wars Celebration Orlando official Art Show exclusive art. Richard, Sarah and Star Wars artist Randy Martinez dive into this classic Marvel Star Wars comic.

Title: "DAY OF THE DRAGON LORDS!"

Release Date: April 11, 1978

Writer: Archie Goodwin

Consulting Editor: Jim Shooter

Penciller: Carmine Infantino, Terry Austin

Cover Art: John Byrne

Synopsis: Luke Skywalker has been forced to join Governor Quarg's group in their battle against the Dragon Lords. Meanwhile aboard Crimson Jack's space cruiser, Han Solo is trying to talk his way out of trouble when Jack realizes that they have been duped into coming to Drexel. But Quarg's jamming equipment on the planet's surface causes a disruption on the space cruiser, which is enough of a diversion to allow Solo, Chewbacca, and Princess Leia Organa to escape in the Millennium Falcon to the surface below. The Falcon splashes onto the water covered surface of Drexel, right in the middle of an epic battle between Quarg's men and the Dragon Lords with Luke Skywalker caught right in the middle.

Join us as we review the story and get an artistic analysis from Randy Martinez. Learn more about Comic Book Legend and artist John Byrne. We then go over our favorite panel, favorite line and most un-Star Wars moment from this issue. We asked for your opinions on the cover art and you came through with some great feedback.

 

Have fun with us and may the classic comics be with you...

163: Matt Busch and Lin Zy - Star Wars Celebration Artists
102 perc 163. rész

Matt Busch and Lin Zy have both been chosen to be official Star Wars Celebration Art Show Artists! While it's always fun talking with another married couple, it's especially exciting to talk to them both about their SWCO Art Show pieces, both of which spoke to Richard and Sarah in different ways. Lin Zy has a beautiful Japanese-inspired Ahsoka piece. 

 

Matt Busch did a celebration of collectibles that looks like he went into Richard's bedroom as a kid growing up, and put it all on a massive painting.

Sarah and Richard delve into the music of Star Wars Rebels where we will look and listen to cues from Legacy of Mandalore and Secret Cargo. This leads to some pretty heavy debate over tragic vs. heroic, Sabine's connection to the Force, and much more.

162: A STAR WARS REBELS Double Feature: Best of Season 3 / Anticipating Season 4
117 perc 162. rész

On March 25th, Star Wars Rebels season 3 aired its finale “Zero Hour”. We invited Spencer Brinkerhoff III (StudiosB3) to join in our discussion of the episode, plus season 3 highlights and what we hope to see in season 4. This comprehensive look includes the climactic battle between old rivals, the return of many familiar faces, the center of the Force in Bendu... and Thrawn. If you want to see a video of our conversation, head to Spencer's YouTube!

It’s been 3 months since the passing of Carrie Fisher and it still doesn’t seem real. Last Saturday, March 25, the family hosted a Public Memorial in honor of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles. LaVonne Dominguez, friend of the show and member of LiningUp.net, was able to go and pay tribute to our beloved icons. She tells us all about the event.

161: Talking TWIN SUNS
128 perc 161. rész

Lucasfilm screened "Twin Suns" and the Season 3 Finale of STAR WARS REBELS for a select few, including Skywalkers Donald Wicks (Rebel Legion) and Joey Pittman (Disney Universe Podcast). They join in a discussion of Twin Suns;, share their Lucasfilm experience and also share audio from the Q&A between Sam Witwer (Maul) and Dave Filoni (Overseer of Star Wars Everything). We will be sharing more of that Q&A next week, as some of it includes discussion on the Season Finale.

Also joining us is Tyler Westhause (Star Wars Podcast Alliance) to talk “Twin Suns” and his favorite Star Wars character: MAUL. I don’t know if fans have ever been more split on a Star Wars Rebels episode. Richard and Sarah certainly were. We read several comments from Skywalkers, too. This is a full-on debate!

160: Beauty and the Beast Press Event
119 perc 160. rész

Disney’s live-action BEAUTY AND THE BEAST arrives in theaters on March 17th, and we have a treat for you - interviews with the entire cast, director and composer direct from the March 5th Los Angeles Press Junket! Emma Watson is delightful as she eloquently speaks on the character of Belle. Luke Evans (Gaston) and Josh Gad (LeFou) absolutely steal the show with their wit and song. Then Director Bill Condon and Composer Alan Menken teach us about storytelling and song-writing as they describe how they adapted this 300-year old story for live-action.

There are four new songs in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST - we go through each to prime you for the movie. Le Fou as played by Josh Gad is the first overtly gay character in a Disney film, tune in to hear our thoughts on that. Emma Watson absolutely brings us to tears. Tune in to hear it all, including our thoughts on this film. If you'd rather read some of this, head over to my post on Adventures By Daddy.

On March 8th, we met Michael Giacchino!!!! Ben Acker and Ben Blacker put on a Book Launch “Join The Resistance” Variety Show at the Largo Theater in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of the new middle grade Star Wars book: “Star Wars: Join The Resistance”. Skywalkers Brian Sims and James Floyd joined us and we had an amazing time. The Variety Show had various acts headlined by various celebrities, including Weird Al Yankovic, Doug Benson (Doug Loves Movies), Matt Gourley (Superego; I Was There Too), Ahmed Best (Jar Jar Binks), Busy Philipps (Freaks & Geeks), Rogue One composer Michael Giacchino. Michael Giacchino may also have given Sarah a birthday message, thanks to Richard Woloski being a fantastic husband!!

159: TANGLED Before Ever After
118 perc 159. rész

Tangled Before Ever After, the new Disney Channel Movie, premieres March 10th - on Sarah’s birthday! We prepare you for the movie and Tangled: The Series by bringing you to a Q&A with the series’ Supervising Director Chris Sonnenburg and Supervising Producer Ben Balistreri. We attended this screening and Q & A on Monday, March 6th and have some GREAT stories to share as well as Behind the Scenes insight into Tangled The Series. Make sure to @followpascal on Instagram! Look closely, you just might see us ;)

Dale Wentland (Network 1901) has a new podcast series, Discovering Star Wars. We find it fascinating that a 33-year-old has NOT seen Star Wars. Dale showed it to him in chronological order starting with Episode 1, and then recorded each podcast episode after each film. It’s fascinating to hear how perspectives change by removing nostalgia.

Imagine trekking to Tatooine - visiting those same sand dunes used for Jabba’s Sail Barge and Sarlacc Battle in Return Of The Jedi. Then hunkering down under the stars that evening to watch Return Of The Jedi surrounded by those same dunes. Would you say you’re in Star Wars heaven? Well, we thought so!

Last week we headed to the Imperial Sand Dunes in Buttercup Valley, CA for their now-annual “Discover the Desert Star Wars Event.” We recap the day with Jawa James (Starwars.com / ClubJade) and Margaret Mays. There’s also a great interview with the three organizers of the event: Kris Haugh (501st, Rebel Legion, Mando Mercs), Carla Teeters (Imperial Valley Film Commission / United Desert Gateway), Michelle Puckett (Bureau of Land Management). They tell us about what it takes to put this on and give us a sneak peek to what they have planned next year.

Jocasta Drew Kaplan (Star Wars Maven) and Sarah take on Catalyst to tell how the book enhances and rounds out characters and situations in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Mark Newbold (JediNews UK / Radio 1138 / starwars.com) and Jennifer Landa (YouTube / ForceCenter Podcast) join Richard and Sarah this week to give their expert opinions on how to get involved in the Star Wars Fan Community. We’ve been asked several times about this, so we asked on these great guests since they have such a rich, varied history between them.

It’s Harry Potter wands vs. Star Wars lightsabers!! Teresa Delgado (Fangirls Going Rogue / Star Wars Bookworms / Disney Vault Talk) helps us delve into the similarities and differences of wand-lore vs. lightsaber kyber crystals, the origin story of the Darksaber vs. the Elder Wand, and so much more. If, for some reason, you are not familiar with the Harry Potter-verse you may want to com back to this one since there will be spoilers.

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #12: DOOMWORLD!
93 perc 12. rész

"At last! Beyond The Movie! Beyond the Galaxy!” reads the cover of each issue of the Marvel Star Wars comics from 1977 and beyond. Richard, Sarah and Star Wars artist Randy Martinez dive into these classic Marvel Star Wars comics from the 1970’s and 1980’s.

In this episode we look at Star Wars #12: ’DOOMWORLD!’ Well, this comic MUST be good because the title is in all caps! There’s also a ROGUE ONE reference, and you will have to help us settle a big debate on just which Star Destroyer appears in this comic.

Title: "DOOMWORLD!"

Release Date: March 14, 1978

Writer: Archie Goodwin

Consulting Editor: Jim Shooter

Penciller: Carmine Infantino, Terry Austin

Synopsis: Luke Skywalker, C-3PO and R2-D2 are still stranded on the water world Drexel. However they are caught in the middle of a battle between the sea-dragons, one ridden by a Dragon Lord; and hydra craft piloted by Governor Quarg's scavengers. The combatants are battling for the prize of Luke's wrecked ship, as anything mechanical is a rare commodity on this ocean-covered planet. Luke and the droids are captured and brought back to their base where Luke tries to convince Quarg that the droids would be more useful to them intact instead of being stripped down for parts. Meanwhile, Han Solo is leading Crimson Jack and his gang of pirates to the Drexel system under the pretense that there is treasure to be found.

Join us as we review the story and get an artistic analysis from Randy Martinez. Learn more about the Penciler vs. Inker vs. Colorist. We then go over our favorite panel, favorite line and most un-Star Wars moment from this issue.

We asked for your opinions on the cover art and you came through with some great feedback. Have fun with us and may the classic comics be with you...

The Darksaber. Star Wars Rebels “Trials of the Darksaber” focused on the origin story to this one-of-a-kind lightsaber and Sabine’s connection.

153: STAR WARS Props & Costumes with GUS LOPEZ
112 perc 153. rész

How many times have you watched a Star Wars films and thought, “I wonder where that prop or costume piece ended up?” The answer is most likely Gus Lopez’s amazing STAR WARS Collection. Each day, he posts a “Daily Grail” on Facebook, showing off one piece of his collection at a time. We were fascinated to learn the stories behind the original Death Star, Emperor Palpatine’s yellow contact lenses, costume notes and size measurements for the Hutt-slayer Leia costume and SO MUCH MORE. Photos of his entire collection here.

The Star Wars Half Marathon at Disneyland (1/13-1/15/17) was good for getting together with Skywalkers, but bad for our muscles! We recap the weekend with Russell Flores (author of Seen, Unseen Disneyland book series). The Rebel Challenge may have kicked our butts, but we had an awesome Skywalker meet-up to celebrate the weekend and Richard’s birthday.

151: Skywalking Through 2016 And Beyond
170 perc 151. rész

Happy New Year Skywalkers! We welcome 2017 by taking a step back and revisiting our high points and low points of 2016 fandom with a few podcast friends. What surprised us in 2016? What was a personal highlight? What was the most controversial moment in fandom? First up, Bryan Young (Full Of Sith / Big Shiny Robot) joins us and we get into a discussion on Star Wars podcasters playing nice.

Then Mark Daniel (Star Wars Celebration and Disney Parks stage host) brings some laughs and life to the show, discussing highs and lows at the Disney Parks and his own extraordinary experiences hosting Star Wars Celebration Europe and Disney Parks Blog Live Videos.

Tricia Barr (Fangirls Going Rogue / FANGirl Blog) must now be called a regular! She has been a staple at every one of our year-end retrospectives and this one is no exception. She brings a great fangirl perspective into the mix.

Then Tyler Westhause (Star Wars Podcast Alliance) rounds out our quartet with a millenial’s perspective on Star Wars fandom. He even tries really hard to talk sports on our show! Of course, Richard and Sarah give their opinions, too. It’s been an interesting year with a bittersweet ending. Onward to 2017!

150: Carrie Fisher Celebrated / Rogue One’s David Collins
140 perc 150. rész

To Us, She’s Royalty.

Please join us as we celebrate the life of the princess, the author, and the woman who paved the way for little girls everywhere to become their own heroes: Carrie Fisher. Tricia Barr (Fangirls Going Rogue / FANGirl Blog) joins us in one of the hardest things we’ve ever had to record. However, in talking through her life and sharing memories and clips, we found solace. We hope you do too.

Then, we get into an amazing discussion behind-the-scenes of ROGUE ONE with David Collins (Star Wars Oxygen / Star Wars Celebration Host / Additional voices on The Force Awakens & Rogue One). Whether he is hosting red carpet events, voicing imperials, co-hosting Star Wars Oxygen or adding to his own family, he always makes time to stop by. We put out the word to our Facebook group asking if our Skywalkers had questions for David, and they had so many that we decided to turn it over to them! Enjoy a lively chat recorded before December 27th.

Our ROGUE ONE coverage continues LIVE from the place where Star Wars began: The TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX (formerly known as Mann’s Chinese Theatre). Immediately after our screening on 12/15, we sat down with an amazing roundtable of Skywalkers, including our friends from The Star Wars Underworld Podcast. We found a spot on the patio outside of the theater that was secret squirrel free! Skywalkers included:

146: The State of STAR WARS Podcasting
142 perc 146. rész

In our Countdown to ROGUE ONE, we discuss the current State of Star Wars Podcasting with special guests Bobby Roberts (former host on Full Of Sith) and Tyler Westhause (Star Wars Podcast Alliance FB Group Creator/Admin, formerly of RebelForce Radio). Both have great insights to recent shake-ups in the podcasting world. What do you want to hear in a Star Wars podcast? Why is there always drama with groups of people? How has podcasting influenced you in a positive way? So many thought-provoking questions. It's always good to take a step back and look at this outlaw medium of podcasting, the “wild west” of media still in its infancy.

Ric Peralta (LiningUp.net) is back to give us more breaking details on the ROGUE ONE line at TCL Chinese Theater IMAX in Hollywood. Star Wars fans are flying in from all over the globe to see this film at the birthplace of Star Wars. Join us, contribute to charity, and be a part of the family.
