141: Skywalking Through MYSTIC MANOR

episode141square

On this Super-Sized HALLOWEEN Episode we dive into Hong Kong Disneyland’s Mystic Manor. Our Ghost Host Dave Skale is back to tell us about this “version” of the Haunted Mansion and why it’s not haunted. Professor Kate Lingley joins us to give us some background on Chinese art history and just why Mystic Manor is so different from The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. (30:45)

Are you near SoCal? Well, get excited because “The Science Behind PIXAR” Exhibit just opened at the California Science Center in downtown LA and runs through April 9, 2017. This is a hands-on exhibit that showcases the science, technology, engineering and math behind PIXAR films. We share with you interviews with members of the Pixar team. They told us some fascinating things we can’t wait to share with you. (1:43:20)

We continue our Inspirations: The Music of Star Wars Rebels segment with “Thrawn’s Web” from “Hera’s Heroes”. We explore how Kevin Kiner is developing Thrawn’s theme, just as Thrawn’s character is developing on the show. There is much to explore. (1:18:56)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our Skywalkers!

This week Richard and Sarah sit by the fire to record their Christmas Eve episode. Skywalkers join in as we look back at the memories and traditions of Christmas past. Some sing in choirs, some watch The Monkees holiday episode and some tick their mom off to the point where she throws the Christmas tree out the front door!

We talk with Super-Skywalker Donald Wicks in Point 5 Past Lightspeed. We see where Donald lands on the Fanboy-O-Meter when we survey him about his fanboy way of life.

Dave Skale finishes his Holiday Ghost Host series as he takes us on the last leg of the Haunted Mansion Holiday ride at Disneyland.

C-3PO reads more last-minute letters to Santa Claus. We hope Santa has enough time to grant these last wishes! Whatever you celebrate (and yes we do consider Life Day and Festivus real holidays), we here at Skywalking Through Neverland wish you happiness and goodwill.

And for good measure, just stay away from Alderaan!

We announce the WINNER of the C-3PO Mickey Ears! And a certain protocol droid may drop by to give Skywalkers some Halloween Safety Tips.

FAN SPOTLIGHT: We talk with Jeff and Colleen Roney from the Once Upon A Time Fan Podcast about the new “Frozen”-themed OUAT Season. Kevin Raider-Nerd Reitzel tells us all about his adventures at Jedi-Con in Dusseldorf Germany.

If big box retailers are any indication, HALLOWEEN is upon us! We LOVE Halloween and so October will be a month-long salute to our favorite holiday.

We kick off the celebration by learning all about Disney’s “Halloween On The High Seas” Cruise. Dave Parfitt (AdventuresByDaddy.com) was lucky enough to attend with his entire family.

Tracey and Scott Morris of Disney, Indiana are back with the first Haunted Disney Short Report. Each week they will look at a different spooky Disney short.

Rebel Spy, Dave Skale, is also Skywalking Through October with a new series. This time Dave is your Ghost Host as he takes you through different aspects of the Haunted Mansion. Today we’ll be talking about the history of the Haunted Mansion, and, Walt’s ‘dark side.’

And as always looooots more. #NeverLandOnAlderaan
