Podcast Stage Show! – Star Wars Celebration Orlando: Skywalking Through 40 Years of Your Fandom

 

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.

165: Star Wars Celebration Orlando – The Debriefing

 

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.

Enjoy and be sure to tweet your #skywalkerselfie!

FULL AUDIO: Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Press Conference

On Saturday, April 15th of Star Wars Celebration Orlando, we were not only treated to an amazing Star Wars Rebels Season 4 panel, but also a Press Conference featuring Executive Producer Dave Filoni and his STAR WARS REBELS “family.” This episode contains the entire audio from that press conference.

Talent Participating:

Dave Filoni – Executive Producer

Vanessa Marshall – voice of Hera

Steve Blum – voice of Zeb

Tiya Sircar – voice of Sabine

Taylor Gray – voice of Ezra Bridger

Fortunately we were all able to ask some fun questions and make Dave Filoni dance a jig. At around 12 minutes in Sarah asks her question about the white wolf we see in the STAR WARS REBELS Season 4 Trailer. The answer garners applause from the room. Click the player to listen!

Here are some highlights from the preceding STAR WARS REBELS panel at SWCO.

163: Matt Busch and Lin Zy – Star Wars Artists

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.

161: Talking TWIN SUNS

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!
