What characters or situations from the Expanded Universe would you like to see cross-over into the new Star Wars films? Would it be a mistake to give established characters, such as the kids of Han and Leia or Luke, new names and backstory instead of using what’s already established? Which of Anakin/Vader’s apprentices would win in a fight Ahsoka or Starkiller?

We ask Tricia Barr of Fangirls Going Rogue and Robert Bapst of The Bald Solo Podcast these Star Wars Expanded Universe questions and more in our Tiki Cantina segment.

Then we continue with Dave Skale’s in-depth look at Star Tours when the original attraction comes to a close in 2010. We share stories as we celebrate The Last Tour To Endor on both coasts.

It’s time to put on your Thinking Ears as we challenge you, the listener, and a group of cosplayers in another round of the Disney Trivia Challenge! (In what movie do you see a Buzz Lightyear toy in a doctor’s office?)

In our Countdown segment we find out how many more days until Celebration Anaheim, Episode VII and we still have no idea about how many more days until Star Wars: Rebels. However, we do look at new trailers and characters including Ezra and his laser sling-shot (is Dennis The Menace really an obscure reference in 2014?).

And remember, Neverland on Alderaan!
