  • Jason Hamilton from the Legends and Lore podcast and StarWars.com joins us this episode.
  • We all started playing Disney Infinity 3.0 with the new Star Wars characters, so of course we had to talk about it.
  • Is Finn strong in the Force? We speculate after seeing the D23 exclusive poster and the 15 second teaser trailer.

bookworms Banner

Star Wars Weekends in going on right now.. and we aren’t there (sad face.) So to keep our minds off of all the fun we are missing, we decided to record another episode of Star Wars Bookworms!

  • The Goodreads book club is moving fast and we can barely keep up. We are wrapping up Lords of the Sith and will be choosing a Legends book for June.
  • Emails are fun. We replied to 5 listener emails which led to discussions on Nomi Sunrider, Han Solo in Rebels, and other random sundries.
  • Not just for kids. We discuss all the Jeffrey Brown Darth Vader books and pick some of our favorite pages. Then we do a flip-through review of his latest, Darth Vader and Friends.
  • New canon, new reference guide. We take a very detailed look at the great new book Ultimate Star Wars.

Celebration Recap and Interviews – SWBW #41

bookworms Banner

Now that some time has passed and we are down from our Celebration high, it’s time to think back on all the good times.

  • Celebration was packed with awesome Star Wars events, celebrity sightings, and hanging out with all our favorite people. We take some time to recap our Celebration Anaheim experience.
  • We also got some great author interviews while we were there. Our first one was with Christie Golden who talked about her reaction to the new The Force Awakens trailer, creating a new species, and writing Vos and Ventress in Dark Disciple.
  • Next we talked to John Jackson Miller about writing a Rebels novel, his take on Hera and Kanan, and why he gave a certain character such a cruel fate in Kenobi.
  • Our last Celebration interview was with James Luceno. He talked about creating Tarkin’s backstory with the Story Group, writing dark side characters, and his take on new canon and Legends.
  • After we got back from Celebration we caught up with writer and artist Jeffrey Brown to talk about his books including the just released Darth Vader and Friends.

Is it Celebration London yet?
