Pablo Hidalgo Interview – SWBW #53

bookworms Banner

We are very excited to share with you an interview we did with Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo a few days ago!

We talk about everything from his experience at Star Wars Day at Sea, to his favorite Star Wars collectible, to the inside details of The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary. He even shares with us his thoughts on Sith eye color (blame Aaron for this question.)

Teresa gets in some Transformers talk and Pablo is more than happy to geek out with her.

It was a really fun interview and one you definitely don’t want to miss!

Teresa asked for emails and our listeners came through! In this episode of Star Wars Bookworms we take some time to answer listener emails and also review The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary.

  • Book Club! This month in the book club we are discussing Before the Awakening and Moving Target. Head on over to Goodreads and join in on the discussion.
  • We got 9 brand new emails and as promised we read them all on the show and respond accordingly. They bring up topics like the mystery man in Aftermath, what books we would bring into canon, an Ewok novel, what Star Wars book would we give on Valentine’s Day, and a lot more!
  • We do a flip through review of The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary.
