We’re lucky enough to be joined by Nick from London who attended day three of Celebration 2016. This episode has Nick’s on-the-scene reporting from Celebration, in addition to a conversation with us a couple days later where he filled us in on all of the rest of the awesomeness he witnessed.


Check out these awesome photos of Nick’s experience:

Speaking of Mandos, here’s that photo of Liam in the Boba Fett mask he made a couple years ago. (Though, if we’re being canon, Boba isn’t really a Mando, right?)

It’s the Falcon!

Episode VIII has wrapped!

Ahsoka’s Untold Tales panel at SWCE revealed some great information about what we would have seen from Ahsoka toward the end of the Clone Wars. We briefly touch on what each of these three untold story arcs would have been about. And Pablo Hidalgo confirmed that the story group considers these untold tales to have happened.

And we’re getting even more Ahsoka in October, with the Ahsoka novel. Check out this cover:


Oh, and let’s not forget about Thrawn.

A starwars.com interview with Timothy Zahn revealed that the timeline for his upcoming Thrawn novel will span the time between when he first “encounters the Empire,” and lead up to the events of season three of Rebels.

Thanks so much to Nick for your Celebration report and for coming on the show again!
