130: Hamill, Hoojibs and HerUniverse

episode130square

On this episode, we continue our coverage of Star Wars Celebration Europe, then dive into SDCC 2016. 

If you watched the Mark Hamill panel from SWCE, our good friend Kevin Raidernerd Reitzel (Fandom Podcast Network) was the first one up to ask Mark a question. He was wearing a #TeamHoojib shirt! Well, Kevin comes on the show to talk Hamill, hoojibs and Running of the Wilrow Hoods.

STN roving reporter Kai Charles (Fiction State of Mind) is back from San Diego Comic-Con 2016 and she has some great stories about the Star Wars panels and the 3rd Annual HerUniverse Fashion Show. Disney Lucasfilm Press is taking over the world!

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.

Direct Link
| iTunes Link

 
Listen in as we tell our INCREDIBLE Star Wars Weekends story of how we snagged an interview with Jeremy Bulloch, a tweet from James Arnold Taylor and a hug from Ashley Eckstein. This week will be an AUDIO-ONLY podcast, so to see pictures and video from our trip, follow along on the companion “Star Wars Weekends With A Personal Touch” Blog Post where we’ve compiled ALL OF IT!

We were so excited to attend the RebelForce Radio Meet-Up on Day 1 of Star Wars Weekends! During the event, we interviewed several attendees including Jimmy Mac, himself. We take you on a journey to the awesome meet-up through all of our interviews.

Not only did we get to experience Star Wars Weekends in all of its Star Wars and Disney glory, we got to ride the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train on soft-open. (Because the ride didn’t actually open until May 28th, the day AFTER we left WDW) We interviewed Dave Parfitt of AdventuresbyDaddy.com about his experience riding the Mine Train at a special invitation-only DisneyParks Press Event.

We take you on our trip to Star Wars Weekends, and welcome any and all pictures and feedback. And remember, #NeverlandOnAlderaan!!
