116: The Early Days of Star Wars Fandom with Craig Miller

star wars fandom craig miller

Our special guest Craig Miller was the Publicist and Director of Fan Relations for Lucasfilm during the hey-day of the 70’s and 80’s. Ever wonder how fans knew what was going on in fandom before social media? Whose job was it to tell the world about this new movie called Star Wars? Craig shares some awesome stories.

Now speaking of social media… SO MUCH STAR WARS this week! Rogue One Teaser Trailer dropped as well as The Force Awakens Blu-Ray with Special Features. We review some of the bonus features with Skywalker and blogger, Drew Kaplan. Then, Richard and Sarah dive in to the ROGUE ONE TEASER TRAILER. The music! The plot! AT-ATs!

Next week we’ll take a deep dive into the documentaries including A Cinematic Journey, Crafting Creatures and Building BB-8.
