Book News

  • Cover reveal for Jeffrey Brown’s next Star Wars book The Phantom Bully.

Award-winning author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown returns for the third installation of the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series Star Wars: Jedi Academy!

It’s hard to believe this is Roan’s last year at Jedi Academy. He’s been busier than ever learning to fly (and wash) starships, swimming in the Lake Country on Naboo, studying for the Jedi obstacle course exam, and tracking down dozens of vorpak clones — don’t ask. But now, someone is setting him up to get in trouble with everyone at school, including Yoda. If he doesn’t find out who it is, and fast, he may get kicked out of school! Why can’t middle school just be easy. . .

This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school — all told through one boy’s comics, journal entries, letters, sketches, e-mails, and more.

CURE Childhood Cancer is an organization that has been around since 1975. They are dedicated to curing Childhood Cancer in our lifetime.  All the funds they generate go to research specifically targeted at the cancers that effect children.

We here at the GOLiverse are proud to partner with them to raise money for a cause we believe in.

Here is how you can help on Saturday January 24th, 2015 while enjoying some of your favorite Geeky programming.

The podcasting fundraising marathon will begin at 10am eastern time. Join podcasting legend Steve Glosson and his amazing team of co-hosts, Kristin from Jersey, Teresa Delgado and Dave Jones as they Geek Out for Curing Cancer.

Some of the shows you can catch will be:

  • Geek Out Loud
  • The Big Honkin’ Show
  • Mark Out Loud
  • Disney Vault Talk
  • Rock Out Loud

The shows will roll all day and into the evening. You will be able to catch them all live on mixlr.com/goliverse

During the marathon you will be able to donate to CURE via this website www.geekoutonline.com/cure

We hope to see you in our live chat and enjoying the programming. We also hope you will donate to such a great cause and join the GOLiverse in helping to CURE Childhood Cancer.

rots-3d

For those heading to Star Wars Celebration Anaheim this April, you can look forward to a chance to see the premiere of Revenge of the Sith in 3D.

At Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, fans can have the first chance to see Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith in 3D. As part of the evening’s screenings featuring all the Star Wars saga movies, Revenge of the Sith will be among the 3D presentations that include The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. Attack of the Clones was screened at Celebration Europe in 2013, but has been shown only very exclusively since.

Seeing all six released movies of the Star Wars saga, three of them in 3D, is just one of hundreds of reasons to attend the four-day festival rich with entertainment, first looks, interactive events, celebrities, panels, and more.
