Now on opposite sides of the war, will these two star-crossed lovers reunite, or will duty tear them–and the galaxy–apart?

Star Wars: Lost Stars also includes all-new post-Star Wars: Return of the Jedi content, as well as hints and clues about the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, making this a must-read for all Star Wars fans.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review including my reviews of the live podcast panels I was able to attend at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.

Coffee With Kenobi: Celebration live panel was a lot of fun and a great way to start the day. Everyone was high off the new trailer for The Force Awakens, and Coffee With Kenobi was able to keep the fun going. They had John ‘Dak’ Morton on as a guest to talk Star Wars. He compare the film to some of Coppola’s greatest movies, The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, and talked about how Star Wars stood out from films like that because of how it inspires people. They discussed fears and overcoming them, and how those themes tie into Star Wars. John also talked about visiting the people who waiting in line overnight, his thoughts on Star Wars Rebels and Ezra’s character, and the panel he’s doing at Celebration that focuses on military personnel and Star Wars. As always, John is a great guest and they touched on some good topics. Afterwards Dan and Cory covered The Force Awakens panel that kicked off the day, touching on Kathleen Kennedy, BB-8, Rey as a scavenger, the trailer, the impact of Han and Chewie, Mark Hamill’s narration, the passing of the sword and even the cinematography. Their second guest was Jeff McGee from Assembly of Geeks and Marvin Dog Media. Jeff chatted with them about the collectibles at Celebration like the Bossk hoodie and Funko Fett. And wrapping things up was Kevin Liell from Norse Legion and a giveaway of some of their cool Star Wars jewelry. I have to admit, I was very impressed with the panel. They pulled off a live show like pro’s with great guests, great discussion and lots of fun. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
