Star Wars Takes Over Club Penguin

July 4, 2013 at 11:09 am | Posted in Disney, Star Wars, Video Games | Leave a comment

StarWars.com posted the following video of Disney’s Club Penguin Star Wars Takeover.

If you are like me, and have no clue what Club Penguin is, it’s a Massively Multiplayer Online Game created by New Horizon Interactive in 2005. Basically it’s a winter world where everyone is a penguin. In 2007, Disney bought Club Penguin. On July 25th, the game will be getting a Star Wars makeover which will last until August 13th. You can check out the official site here for more details.

ForceCast: Special CEII Artist Interviews Episode one includes some really nice interviews with Star Wars Celebration Europe II artists Joe Corroney, Hugh Fleming and Lin Zy. All three artists are interviewed by fellow artist Spencer Brinkerhoff III. Definitely worth listening to.

Special CEII Artist Interviews Episode two covers Star Wars artists Brian Rood, Chris Trevas and Jerry Vanderstelt. I’m really enjoying these special interview episodes. Spencer does a great job and I’m looking forward to listening to more.

Full of Sith: The Story of Star Wars Special Release episode is something fans may or may not want to skip. Mike gives a brief intro and then plays The Story of Star Wars (which was a record released in 1977) in its entirety. It’s basically the audio for A New Hope but with narration so listeners can follow along with the action. Definitely cool to have it out there if you ever want to give it a listen.
