Welcome back to the Star Wars Report podcast!

On this episode, your hosts Bethany and Riley are out of town, minus some of their recording equipment; so they record a pre-recorded show for you by themselves. WE MISSED YOU MARK!! (We also talked about you.) >=)

Red Tails is coming this spring, May 22nd, to DVD, and Blu-ray!

A new twist for Leia’s Journey for Baby Princess Leah!

Well, Leia’s Journey has been a huge success so far and a blast to do. We have had a ton of people that want Leia to stop by for a visit, and, well, Leia can only be in one place at a time….. UNTIL NOW!?!?

“What do you mean?”, you might be thinking. Well, we have decided to add a “New Twist” to the “Leia’s Journey for Baby Leah” project. Leia will continue her journey as scheduled, but to help with getting Leia to more stops and conventions, we are going to open up the “Leia’s Journey” to anyone who has a “Princess Leia 12 inch action figure” of their own.

Remember when we discussed several rumors about Star Wars: Battlefront III? Well, even more rumors and speculation have surfaced over the disclosure of some interesting information…..

James Arnold Taylor and Ashley Eckstein will be reprising their roles as hosts of Star Wars Weekends again this year!

There’s a life size statue of Darth Malgus!?!? And it costs nearly $6,000?

We also cover the CBS copyright infringement shutdown of a Star Trek fan-film. We compare CBS’ action on this to Lucasfilms’ fan relations, and talk about how grateful we are that Lucasfilm isn’t overly stringent with their copyrights. (If they were, you wouldn’t, after all, be reading this, or listening to this episode. Thank you Lucasfilm!)

We read two emails from listeners (Thanks guys! We always love feedback!), and talk about the newly released Star Wars Kinect!

And of course we discuss the travesty that is Han Solo dancing…. (Travesty? Really? Why is that so bad? It’s just like a cos-player deciding to dance while in costume at a convention, and everyone seems to like that…. and it’s not like it’s a main plot point in the game, or a part of an in universe novel, comic or video game. I would understand people being upset if right in the middle of a serious cut-scene from The Force Unleashed, Starkiller broke out the moves and started to tango.)

On that swingin’ and jiggin’ note, we hope you enjoy the episode!

Post Cards for Baby Leah

Hey everyone, remember the post we did awhile back talking about our friend Chris’s project to help Baby Leah? Here’s another way everyone can help, by sending a post card to the little princess! Check below for more details!

Postcards for Baby Leah

Since this “Journey” is for Baby “Princess” Leah our guest of honor, we
are adding postcards for Princess Leah to this Leia’s Journey for Baby
Leah.

Anyone who would like to send in a postcard to Princess Leah just pick up
a postcard in your local area, write a personal message to Princess Leah
on the postcard, date it and mail it to us at the “Sarlacc Pit” podcast.

We will compile these postcards and put them together in a book that will
be given to Leah, along with the Leia 12″ action figure. That way as Leah
is growing up she can read all the messages from all of us who care about
her.

Leia’s Journey for Baby Leah

Hey everyone!

I’m here to tell you about a fund raiser for Baby Leah, a little girl who’s been very sick for most of her short life. If you haven’t heard Baby Leah’s story, CNN covered it here.

Our good friend Chris “Hoth Ice Planet” Smith began this adventure, and is in the process of working on it as you read this. Basically, he’s sending a Princess Leia figure around the world to see different people and places to raise awareness, and hopefully funds, for Baby Leah and her family! Check it out, and if you want to be a destination for the Princess Leah figure, email Chris with his contact information at the bottom of this write up.

 

Leia’s Journey for Baby Leah

Hi,

I am Princess Leia in my Endor combat outfit, and I am traveling the world to help raise awareness and money for “Baby Leah” and her family.

Here is the personal blog of her family where you can keep up to date on her well being.

I have started a Facebook page to house my trip around the world in photos.

My trip starts off at the home of the “Sarlacc Pit” podcast in Memphis, TN. I got to tour Memphis!!! Then I stopped off at Graceland, Memphis bridge, B.B. King’s on Beale Street and the Martin Luther King’s Museum. Where will I go next? Stop by my Facebook page to keep up with my trip.

If you want me to stop off in your city or country, then let me know on our Facebook page or shoot me an email at hothiceplanet@galacticbinder.com. I am sooooo excited to get this trip started. Day one was a blast. Next stop LA.

If you would like to make a donation to “Baby Leah” and her family go here.

 

 

The Year in Review – SWR #26

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!

“Twilight is upon me and soon night must fall. That is the way of things……”

ON TO 2012!

Welcome back to The Star Wars Report!

Guess what! WE HAD NO TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES!!! I’M SO HAPPY! WOOT!

During this episode of The Star Wars Report, Riley, Bethany and Mark discuss a number of news stories.

Will The Old Republic threaten the revenue of World of Warcraft?

Also, George Lucas gives his autograph to help little Princess Leah, the baby girl we’ve spoken of before.

Thank you Toy Hutt for sponsoring this episode! Check out their site, and their awesome collectibles! This week, we admired a holographic Princess Leia, and talked about some of their new toys!

And, take a look at some recently unearthed story board art for The Empire Strikes Back!

Hah, Obi-Wan looks like Gandalf!

Geek is Awesome posted an old interview with some of the original trilogy actors, and it reveals a very different set of plans for how Star Wars prequels/sequels could have gone….

We welcomed special guest Nathan Butler on the show to talk about a new podcast he’ll be doing for the Star Wars Report! It’s called Star Wars Beyond the Films, stay tuned for more updates, and we’ll let you know when the show airs for the first time!

And a shout out to Eric, thanks for the email! We always love listener feedback!
