This week’s topics include:

  • A reaction to the TFA score
  • A Nerdy music question about “Padme’s visit” que in ROTS
  • ‘Star Wars’ Co-Producer Dishes on the Film’s Final Shot and HDR http://bit.ly/20JUr5b

    Rosenblatt admitted that director J.J. Abrams was conflicted about using that shot or concluding with a close-up of Rey. He added that the decision was driven by John Williams’ score, and it “left you with this sweeping emotional epic [feel], and you’re going to see a lot of that in Episode VIII.” Asked whether he thought Abrams or George Lucas influenced the look of The Force Awakens, he responded: “Both. It was J.J., but J.J. was honoring George’s original vision. … But J.J. brought his own visual language to the film.”

Dragon Con 2014: An Hour with Sam Witwer

Greetings all! Bethany Blanton of the Star Wars Report here to give you more coverage of Dragon Con! What follows is a recap of the Sam Witwer panel at Dragon Con this year, but first I’ll quickly tell you how my brother and I met Sam.

Riley and I first met Sam Witwer at Dragon Con a few years ago, where he was kind enough to take the time to do an interview with us. He’s an awesome Star Wars fan who is passionate about the franchise. One of Riley’s highlights of this year’s convention was when, while in conversation with him later, Sam mentioned listening to the Star Wars Report. Yes, Riley’s face at that moment did make me laugh. :)

This year saw me, Teresa, Riley, and Aaron all together again for Dragon Con! While the convention is over, we are still releasing coverage of it including photos, event coverage, and panel recaps like this one. Dragon Con has so much wonderful content from Marvel panels to parties, from Doctor Who to My Little Pony, and of course the Star Wars track, which had panels, parties, a costume contest, a trivia contest, and more. Riley and I attended the Sam Witwer panel on Sunday morning. Moderated by Bryan Young, this panel was more like a conversation with Sam, Bryan, and the audience than a panel. Sam was cool and entertaining as usual.
