on-station-at-celebrationStar Wars Celebration Anaheim day three I’m going to do a bit different by updating this as they day progresses since I have some time before the Star Wars Rebels Season Two global premiere. For starters, let’s begin with the New Allies & New Villains: Star Wars Rebels Season 2 panel.

As usual, there’s a bit of fun with the preshow, and I think it’s worth noting so people can get the full experience of Celebration. Mark Daniels read, in jest, a Chewbacca poem, then had young volunteer come up so they could play a game. The game involved several helmets on podiums (stormtrooper helmets, etc) and some big, stuff Star Wars angry birds. They kids threw the angry birds at the helmets to knock them off and win a prize.

on-station-at-celebrationStar Wars Celebration Anaheim day two, what a day. For me, it all started with a series of author interviews you can look forward to seeing in the very near future, and ended with the Anthony Daniels panel on the Celebration Stage. Let me just say, he knows how to put on a show. But in general, this Celebration has really raised the bar on panel quality.

I have to admit, one of my favorite things about Celebration is meeting the authors. I’m a total book nut, so my passion for the Star Wars novels is definitely at the heart of my fandom. On top of that, getting to interview them is always a great experience. I try to bring my ‘A’ game with the questions, and if I do my job well, hopefully fellow book lovers will enjoy the results. Expect to see, or if the audio turns out well, hear, from authors Christie Golden, Drew Karpyshyn, John Jackson Miller, James Luceno, Daniel Wallace, Adam Bray and Tricia Barr in the coming weeks as we post those interviews with each author talking about their books and the stories behind them. We’ll also be doing some giveaways for signed novels so keep an eye out for that too. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 2…

on-station-at-celebrationStar Wars Celebration Anaheim day one. Exciting, huh? For all of those who didn’t attend, you’ve probably all watched the trailer at least a dozen times. Aside from that craziness, it was a whole lot of fun.

As it usually goes, it all started with a line, and this was a big one. I did not camp out for the night, so I missed out on J.J. Abrams’ pizza and John ‘Dak’ Morton’s free autographs. However, I got plenty of sleep and sitting second row at the Digital Stage wasn’t too bad. Oddly David Collins wasn’t there to host the simulcast for the room, but it was still cool to see it on a big screen, and so awesome when they got to the trailer. Yet as mind blowing as that was, as heart warming and sentimental as Chewie and Han were, I have to admit seeing the real working BB-8 was something special. I’m thinking a weighted rotating ring for motion inside the sphere and magnets that stay stationary at the top for the head with some room for movement…yeah, I’m ready for those blueprints :) Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 1…

on-station-at-celebrationStar Wars Celebration Anaheim kicks off tomorrow and will run for four days of non-stop Star Wars awesomeness. Many people are already lining up for the J.J. Abrama/Kathleen Kennedy The Force Awakens panel line. While I won’t be partaking in that bit of fan zeal, I am in Anaheim and I have scoped the convention center out. One things for certain, this place is big.

Alas there’s not a lot to do at the convention yet, but that will change tomorrow. For now, I’m just enjoying Anaheim. I’ve taken a walk around the city, chowed down and In-and-Out Burger (which is delicious by the way, I highly recommend the animal style burger), and had to chance to say to Dave Filoni who still thinks he’s invisible without his cowboy hat.

With the weather being so nice, I’m about to head out to Disneyland and put a cap on day one. Tomorrow I’ll be posting a recap for the first day of Celebration, so be sure to check it out to get a taste of the convention experience.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. I’m putting this one out a day early since I’m heading out to Star Wars Celebration. Enjoy!

Bombad Radio: Episode 193 features Jeremiah and guests Jesse and Amanda as they discuss Neil Blomkamp and his Aliens sequel. They also talk about District 9, Prometheus, Alien 3, Alien vs. Predator and Alien vs. Predator: Requiem. They had a good topic for the episode, sadly it didn’t turn out the best. The audio is very weird (which Jeremiah apologizes for) which makes it kind of hard to listen to and enjoy. While I didn’t really agree a whole lot with their thoughts on the movies, I did appreciate their discussions of the comics as I haven’t checked those out.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode #34 starts with some Rogue One discussion, a dose from the Bearded Trio, and then segues into their main topic with is a very fun conversation with the hosts of Skywalking Through Neverland. Sarah and Richard talk about how they met, how they got started in podcasting, and the extents of their Star Wars fandom. The episode wraps up with some listener feedback, and puts a bow on another great episode.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #18 covers Rogue One, their Celebration shirts, shoutouts, and what panels and events they have going on at Celebration. Then they talk with Ashley Eckstein about Ahsoka, Her Universe and Celebration. Amy Ratcliffe comes on to talk a little about Celebration, and they finish things off with a character discussion on bounty hunters and Cad Bane. Another awesome episode with great guests and great discussion. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
