Ultimate Star Wars and Friends – SWBW #42

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.

Andy Serkis’ Star Wars 7 Character Revealed

StarWars.com has just revealed Andy Serkis’ character name as well as a photo of Serkis in motion capture gear.  Serkis is reportedly playing a character by the name of Supreme Leader Snoke, and by the name and the motion capture gear I think it’s safe to assume he is obviously playing an alien character.  Either way we’ll know in December when The Force Awakens theaters this December.

Mark Hamill Can Handle

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim inspired many Star Wars fans around the globe. Images, news, and trailers from the event began streaming online almost immediately, and with that came the awe that inevitably goes hand in hand with watching Star Wars.

On May 4th, in Cape Town, South Africa, Chris Cape, a full time pop musician, found himself particularly inspired. After a long day of teaching guitar lessons, he sat down and let the creativity, (like the Force) flow. What came next, is a fun blend of fast lyrics, fun music, and STAR WARS.

Mark Hamill Can Handle - A fan made song - Chris Cape

Last year Chris Cape released a 10-track project for free download and it was a total success. Hoping to follow it up this year, he is working on material for a new album, as well as several single-track releases. But wanting to give back to the community that has so inspired him along the way, Chris is offering his fun new track “Mark Hamill Can Handle” for FREE!

As Chris Cape puts it:

I’m a Star Wars fan from Cape Town South Africa.

I’m also a full time pop musician. I write, produce, play guitar, sing and rap. I’m deep into the Expanded Universe as well as the movies and have found that SW fuels the creative mind in a unique way.

The recent overflow of SW7 excitement has found it’s way into my writing. I got home from a long day of teaching guitar on May 4th, sat down in my studio, messed around on my 80’s Japanese Casio keyboard, and let the inspiration flow into a new song. What came out was the song I’ve attached to this email.

“Mark Hamill Can Handle” is me talking about my anticipation of SW7. Like, “sheesh this Kylo dude looks hard core so I hope Luke can deal!”… and at the same time, “But dudes, it’s Luke Skywalker… of course he’s got this!” I love Mark Hamill and am hoping he’ll hear this song at some point!

So let’s spread this far and wide! If you like it, share it!
