Episode 21: Raiders of the Lost Fan Film

| iTunes Link

In 1982 Chris Strompolos set out with his buddies to remake Raiders Of The Lost Ark as only kids could do. Cut to 26 years later…and they are still working on it. Skywalking Through Neverland talks to Chris about the making of this shot-to-shot remake called Raiders Of The Lost Ark: The Adaptation, lighting his friends on fire to get the re-enactment just right and his Kickstarter campaign (they are so close) to raise enough to finally say, “It’s a wrap!”

What do you do when Billy Dee Williams reaches out on Twitter to ask you if he can use your artwork on Dancing With The Stars? You say “YES!” Listen in to get all the details about Lando Calrissian becoming a dancer and how you can vote for #teamSlando (his dance partner’s name is Emma Slater. Does Slando make sense now?)

After a year of waiting, The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions Season 6 is finally here! Netflix has released the final 13 episodes; and the question is, do we binge watch? Do we savor as a build up to Star Wars: Rebels? How do you let new Star Wars just sit there and not dive in?
