Star Wars animation writer Steven Melching joins us to share stories of writing on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: Resistance! Over an hour of great insight into TV writing, because his filmography includes  Batman, Transformers, He-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, RoboCop, and Marvel franchises. Steven gives us behind-the-scenes stories about some of the fan-favorite Star Wars episodes, like “Twilight of the Apprentice,” “Rookies,” and the emotional Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Finale. He also has advice for up and coming writers, and shares his thoughts on The Bad Batch. We talk King Kong, Hoojibs and so much more!!

About Hoojibs

We started STN back in 2013 to share our passion for Star Wars and Disney, to create a family-friendly community, and, to make Hoojibs canon! As of 8/16/21 we completed all of our goals as the news broke that Star Wars Adventures Annual 2021 was to feature – HOOJIBS!!!

We want to thank Brian Sims of alerting us to this news first – he told us to go look at Twitter where Matt Martin of the Star Wars story group had posted this tweet:

Matt Martin on Twitter: “I think @SkywalkingPod are going to be very happy. / Twitter”

I think @SkywalkingPod are going to be very happy.

WOW! You can check out more about this news and HOOJIBS in this new article, and a history of the hoojibs in our Episode 208. But that’s not all! It seems like Lucasfilm is fulfilling all of our wishes. Not only are we getting a comic with hoojibs in November, but we’re also getting a Life Day comic! Check out this article for more.
