Rest in Peace Ralph Mcquarrie – SWR #36

Play

Salutations and felicitations Star Wars fans! We have for you today another episode of the Star Wars Report!

During this episode we talk about Drew Karpyshyn retiring from BioWare, George Lucas getting the Vanguard Award from the NAACP for Red Tails, a successful Kickstarter, Star Wars project that went through and much more!

How much would a Death Star cost to build in real life?

LFL digital production facility plans move forward for Marin County CA. Is Lucasfilm growing as a successful, competitive company? And, could this possibly be related to the production of a certain Star Wars, live action, much talked about television show!? (Thanks to Anthony Madden for pointing that out!)

 

Drew Karpyshyn’s book get’s a title, the Nomi Sunrider book has been canceled, and Timothy Zahn’s Han Solo book will be out this winter!

This episode of the Star Wars Report is sponsored by Toy Hutt! Your source for toys and more from that galaxy far, far away!

Toy Hutt has an awesome deal for avid collectors this week! If you’re looking to purchase a number of Star Wars items in the near future, they have a sale right now where if you purchase $75.00 or more, you get a %20 percent discount!

We also discovered that they have a cool, collecting 101 guide. If you’re new to collecting, or like having your collecting information assimilated neatly (Yeah sure, Borg style. Props if you get this reference!), than take a look at their guide!

Riley also spoke of his conflicted feelings on the Star Wars Happy Meals.

We played a cool interview with Erik Bauersfeld, the voice of Admiral Ackbar and Bib Fortuna, who seems like quite a nice guy!

Ralph Mcquarrie (June 13, 1929 – March 3, 2012) is now one with the Force. This episode of the Star Wars Report is dedicated to him.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Star Wars Report!

On this episode of the Star Wars Report, special guest Pete Morrison joins us to talk all things Star Wars!

We discussed dancing in The Old Republic, (Yes, it really happened!) and Timothy Zahn’s upcoming Han Solo novel!

Our thanks go to Toy Hutt for sponsoring this episode! The guys over there are on vacation right now, and I hope they enjoy themselves as much as this trooper is!

Also, an interesting George Lucas interview, and the possibility of The Old Republic coming to Macintosh computers!

Nathan Butler joins us partway through the show to talk about the ebook release of Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter!

And also, the Death of the Internet! (Ok, rather melodramatic, but it’s partly true!) SOPA!


Be sure and join us for our weekly live show on Middle-earth Network Radio! We often have exclusive, live only content over there; this week, we discussed Red Letter Media’s The Phantom Menace Rebuttal, along with other topics, with all the people in the  chat!

Thanks for tuning in!

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!
