Welcome to this, the last 2011 episode of The Star Wars Report!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This was a very special episode of The Star Wars Report; we discussed how we felt about this past year, and where we’ve come from, once we were The Bothan Report, now we are The Star Wars Report! This is a very free-form episode, and it runs a bit longer than normal, an hour and forty-ish minutes. We had quite a turn out in the chat, which was a very pleasant surprise! We’d imagined that there wouldn’t be that many people, it being so close to Christmas. Thanks for that guys, you’re always fun to talk to. =)
We talked about how it’s great to be members of the Star Wars fan community, a community which bands together to help such children like Baby Leah, a little girl who has been sick for most of her short life, and Katie, a girl who was bullied for liking Star Wars.
We also talked a bit more about the Star Wars expanded universe podcast that will be joining us in January, Star Wars Beyond the Films. You can hear a more in-depth description of Star Wars Beyond the Films and how it came to be on the twenty third episode of Nathan Butler’s podcast, the EU Review.
Our sponsor for this episode is Toy Hutt! Mark was delighted to find that Toy Hutt has a figure of K’Kruhk, a bit more on the expensive side, this figure of K’Kruhk would make Mark really happy if anyone is wondering what to get him for Christmas! Haha
We also talked about how The Star Wars Report has changed, and all our favorite Star Wars items that have come out in the past year, how we’ve changed as Star Wars fans, how much we adored The Hobbit trailer, (yes really, we did) and decided we’d discuss it in the next episode. We also read several emails we got from listeners, which we always love doing, and responded to them.
Thank you so much guys, we’ve loved doing the Star Wars Report, we’ve loved talking to everyone on Facebook, Twitter, via email, and in our live show chat room!
