Happy Holidays, Skywalkers! We have a gift for you: Rob Dehlinger (Our Podcast Composer & Musician) joins us as we delve into the 1980 Star Wars Christmas Album: “Christmas In The Stars!” by Meco. Whether you had this as a kid or if this is your first exposure, we promise a great time.

We check out each musical piece, from “Bells, Bells Bells” to “What Can You Get A Wookiee For Christmas (When He Already Owns A Comb?)” Then we dig into the history of the album and Fun Facts. Jon Bon Jovi, anyone?

All we can say is “You’re Welcome” 😉 and…
NeverLand on Alderaan!

Trick or Treat! Our Strange Halloween episode begins with a crash-course on Doctor Strange, from the original 1963 comic to the brand new Marvel film out November 4th. Prepare to be enlightened in the mystic arts as we take you to a special press conference that included Benedict Cumberbatch, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, producer Kevin Feige and director Scott Derrickson. We’ll also give you our spoiler-free review of the film and a “Doctor Strange Name Primer” to help you better enjoy the film from the get-go.

It’s almost Halloween night when we all spend the better part of the evening knocking on neighbors doors asking for candy. We want to make sure everyone is safe this holiday season so C-3PO is back to give some safety tips on trick or treating. In fact, some Skywalkers may just be trick-or-treating early on this episode!

Episode 59: A Skywalker Family Christmas

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 love when you tweet at us during the show: @SkywalkingPod.

Episode 29 Audio Only: REVENGE OF THE 5TH!!



Direct Link
| iTunes Link

 
This is our most action-packed, super-fun, galactically great episode yet!  We would like to start off by saying ‘Happy Revenge Of The 5th!” We hope you had a Forceful May The 4th.

Thank you, Disney, for announcing the cast for Episode 7 this last week! (They knew this would make a perfect Tiki Cantina segment for our May the 4th Episode of Skywalking Through Neverland.) Now along with returning saga veterans like Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker we have a brand new cast to help further the story we never thought we’d get. So we called a few of our friends like Robert Bapst of The Bald Solo Podcast (who is also co-hosting this week), Scott Murray from the Assembly of Geeks podcast and our long time listener and admin of Skywalking Through Neverland Facebook Page, Donald Wicks.

A long time ago in an era known as the 70’s and 80’s when there was very little Star Wars content to help fill in the gaps, we had to go on our first impressions. We had no spin-offs or expanded universe to help us visualize what things like “the Clone Wars” meant. Who was The Emperor? And what memories did Leia actually have of her mother? We talk with friends including Chris Alexander (author of Star Wars Origami), Michael Kogge (author of The Despotica and Star Wars Insider articles) and Tricia Barr (fangirlblog.com and Fangirls Going Rogue). They reveal their first impressions of the Clone Wars, a duel between Vader and Obi-Wan at the edge of a volcano and more. This is a discussion Richard has been having with Chris Alexander since they were both dressing up as Jedi Luke back in 1984.

The very first all-Star Wars convention was held over the Memorial Day weekend, 1987, in Los Angeles to celebrate the saga’s 10th Anniversary. Richard was lucky enough to have attended!. One of the highlights was the very first appearance by George Lucas who had flown in from England where he was shooting Willow. We’ve aired some of his Q&A on past shows. We go back and review this Q&A and repeat the questions when needed or just crack-wise on questions that were asked 27 years ago…

We have so much more for today’s episode including the history of how May The 4th started, a review of The Big Bang Theory’s Star Wars episode, and, the reveal of our May the 4th Giveaway winner!

And remember, never land on Alderaan!
