Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 26 is the audio from their panel at Oak City Comicon. The panel features Stephen, Swara and Nick Dicolandrea from Coffee With Kenobi as they talk real world politics and how politicians have tried to use Star Wars to their advantage. Interesting episode. Audio is pretty good, too.

Blast Points: Interview with Joe Corroney and Brian Miller is a great conversation with both Star Wars artists as they talk about their Celebration prints, the ideas behind them, their art styles and their love of Star Wars.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 114 features Joe and Chris as they touch on Star Wars Rebels “Twin Suns,” they get on to Pineapple Express, then head into Celebration. Joe reveals his Denis Lawson plan, they rundown the schedule, what they’re podcast stage plans would have been, then they circle back to “Twin Suns” and carry on into “Zero Hour.” They give a quick recap of Star Wars Rebels season 3, then get into need’em got’em, Star Wars Monopoly, and listener emails. Fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

We first got wind of this book back in July, but now we finally have a cover for The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Cover by Doug Chiang

StarWars.com revealed some details…

The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, written by Phil Szostak, is a portal that takes you from the earliest gathering of artists and production designers at Lucasfilm headquarters in San Francisco to the fever pitch of production at Pinewood Studios to the conclusion of postproduction at Industrial Light & Magic. Arriving in stores on December 18, the same day that Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, it takes fans deep inside the evolution of the film. Exclusive interviews with the entire creative team also provide a detailed look at what it took to bring director J. J. Abrams’ vision to life, while the unused “blue sky” concept art offers glimpses into roads not traveled.

Bursting with hundreds of beautiful works of art that include production paintings, concept sketches, storyboards, blueprints, and matte paintings, The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will delight both Star Wars fans and film enthusiasts for years to come.

Star Wars fans heading to Celebration Europe II can no look forward to meeting none other than Jango Fett Temuera Morrison. On top of that, artists Doug Chiang and Ian McCaig will be there. Doug was a design director for Episode I and concept design supervisor for Episode II. Ian, on the other hand, worked on all three prequels including the designs for Darth Maul and Queen Amidala. Both will also be involved in the upcoming sequel trilogy.
