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.

115: STAR WARS REBELS Season 2 Finale Press Coverage Special



Direct Link
| iTunes Link

In true Disney fashion, Disney Channel PR and Lucasfilm put on a genuine Red Carpet bash at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, CA for the finale of Star Wars: Rebels, Season 2. In this episode, Richard and Sarah take you to the Red Carpet, inside the Main Theater with Q&A on “Twilight of the Apprentice” from cast and crew, and further to one-on-one interviews with Dave Filoni, Ashley Eckstein, Vanessa Marshall and Kevin Kiner.

*SPOILER ALERT* If you have NOT seen this finale – turn back now! Not only was the Q&A held after we all saw “Twilight of the Apprentice” together, but we also give our thoughts on spoiler-heavy moments. The Q&A was moderated by Amy Ratcliffe, and we heard from writer and creator Dave Filoni, creator Simon Kinberg, Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) and Taylor Gray (Ezra Bridger). Since we bring our recorder everywhere, we had a short roundtable with fans right after the screening.

FURTHER EXPLORATION: Check out Adventures By Daddy for a complete rundown of the Red Carpet, including pictures and our Periscope. Then head over to FanGIRL Blog to watch the complete Q&A in its entirety and read some of my thoughts on “Twilight of the Apprentice”.

COMING UP: In the coming weeks we will cover the music of “Twilight of the Republic”, so email us your thoughts on any aspect of the episode to share@skywalkingthroughneverland.com.
