It was a dark and stormy night… well, not really. It was my first day at Star Wars Celebration Europe, and my first main panel: The “Star Wars Rebels” Panel and Season Premiere! The first part of the panel was information about the new season of Rebels, and discussions about the characters, cast, story, and design. Clips, photos, the season trailer, and finally the season premiere were shown, followed by more discussion and ending in a Q&A. Details and photos after the break!
This week We are joined by Scott Ryfun of My Star Wars Story, Dinner 4 Geeks, and The Star Wars Tonight podcast to discuss all the marketing and merchandising surrounding The Force Awakens. Has Lucasfilm gone too far? Tune in and find out scoundrels.
With The Force Awakens hitting theaters in mere days it’s time someone stopped and said, “When is enough?” Well Bruce and Michael certainly aren’t those people but we entertain the question in with a wonderful discussion with Scott Ryfun in this episode.
This Week We are joined by Kevin “The Raider-Nerd” Reitzel to discuss the Star Wars LCG from Decipher as well as Kevin’s time playing the game and working for Decipher.
It’s another Giant-Sized episode with lots of fun and laughs from your hosts Michael and Bruce. Join us this week for a trip to the past to talk the glory days of The Decipher Card game.
The “How I Would Have Written The Force Awakens Author Panel” at Dragon Con 2015 was, as the title suggests, about how several Star Wars authors – namely Timothy Zahn, Michael Stackpole, Rebecca Moesta, and Kevin J. Anderson (with Paula Rosenberg moderating) – would have written Star Wars: The Force Awakens. To be clear, this wasn’t official in any way; it was simply a group of very experienced writers examining what they would have written, in an off-the-cuff (and sometimes intentionally silly and ridiculously funny) manner.
I was lucky enough to attend the panel and it was, in my opinion, absolutely hilarious! My favorite aspect of this panel was how much fun the authors had with the discussion, how engaged they were, and how they weren’t afraid to be both outlandish and serious at times. It was actually difficult to keep up with their banter sometimes, especially when I was laughing too much to type accurately. (P.S. One of the reasons I love the Star Wars track at Dragon Con is because of how nice the authors are there, and how open and available they are with fans.) Here is the panel, recapped and somewhat abridged.
The authors began with describing how they would open the film.
