139: The Son of the Godfather of Halloween – DON POST JR.

Don Post. Does that name bring back memories for some of you? Let’s go Skywalking through October with the man that put Halloween on the map – Don Post Jr! Don’s father, nick-named the Godfather of Halloween, started up Don Post Studios and together he and his son built up the company. They eventually acquired the license to make full head Star Wars masks and helmets back in 1977 and the rest is Halloween history. We could not BE more excited to share this interview with you, and Don Post, Jr. himself was just as excited. The memories he has to share bring tears to your eyes.

Inspiration: The Music of Star Wars Rebels is quickly becoming our most popular segment. This week we look at Kevin Kiner’s “Combining the Holocrons” track from Star Wars Rebels S3 E2: “The Holocrons of Fate”. Maul’s theme, a Holocron theme (?!) and the Devil’s tone!!

113: Skywalking Behind-The-Scenes of ZOOTOPIA



Direct Link
| iTunes Link

With the imminent release of Disney’s ZOOTOPIA on March 4th, it’s the perfect time to bring you Behind-The-Scenes stories from the Press Day Sarah attended at Walt Disney Animation Studios. We had press roundtables with the Directors, Writers, Production Designers and Character Designers/Animators of ZOOTOPIA. She’ll go into some amazing stories, fun facts and we’ll hear audio from the filmmakers themselves.

Sarah was able to see ZOOTOPIA at a special #DisneyInfinityNEXT early screening, so she will give her Spoiler-Free review. She also got to meet Allison Petreck of Disney Infinity Toy Box TV. And then let’s get into NEW Disney Infinity characters, Marvel Battlegrounds Playset and more!

Richard takes on the farce that was the Oscars. No awards for The Force Awakens?? What is this world coming to? Host Chris Rock had to tap-dance around #OscarsSoWhite and he really did a quick step. As always we have enlightening clips from The Oscars as well as media surrounding the event.

We also have shout outs, and the Skywalker of the Week!

111: Watching Star Wars in a Whole New Way



Direct Link
| iTunes Link

Have you gone back to watch the 6 films of the Star Wars Saga after seeing The Force Awakens? What did you think? What did you feel? With all the new movies, comics, novels and TV shows that fill in gaps or show a different POV, it can change the way we look at the films. Richard and Sarah explore those changes with special guests Bryan Young (Full of Sith, Starwars.com) and Chris Salton (Brews and BlastersThe Collector’s Hutt). You’ll never watch Han and Leia’s love scene the same way again! (30:37)

Next up, Impressions: The Music of Star Wars Rebels, where we analyze Kevin Kiner’s score. On this episode we analyze “Legends of the Lasat” with our special guest, Tricia Barr (Fangirls Going RogueFANgirl Blog). This was the episode where our Ghost crew encountered an anomaly on the edge of known space, and had to use Zeb’s leadership to get through. The music was so unusual and engaging, with those bare strings, we HAD to talk about it. (1:37:15)

Time to get the scoop on the secret behind the voice of Chopper in Star Wars Rebels!
