Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 77 starts with some news on The Last Jedi UK release and they talk about their own love of diving into spoilers when the movie gets released a day early. They also talk about the stolen Rancho Obi-Wan items, then they head into their main discussion, The Empire Strikes Back Super 8. They talk about how this 33 minute version of Star Wars plays out, what was cut, what was kept, and what’s different including alternate line readings. Good episode.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 121 covers haircuts, Conty’s dioramas and custom figures, a Blast Points shoutout, Chris Cornell’s passing, and then they dive into the Vanity Fair content. No need’em got’em but they do have listener emails. Fun episode.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 71 features guests Ian Doescher and Brian Sims as they join Dan for some various discussions including items being stolen from Rancho Obi-Wan, new Hallmark items, LEGO, Funko Pop and a character poll. Dan also has a great interview with audiobook narrator Marc Thompson. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 175 features another one of their outstanding interviews, this time with Star Wars author Sean Williams. They talk with Sean about some of his last Star Wars books like Fatal Alliance and The Force Unleashed I and II. However, the real fun kicks in when Sean talks about his ideas for books he didn’t get to write. More than just sharing the pitch, Sean actually goes over a bunch of the ideas he and a fellow co-writer had in mind for a book called Jedi Asylum. He also touches on his thoughts for The Force Unleashed III which he is still hoping might happen, and gets into a fun brainstorming session. It’s a very fun episode and one EU fans might get a big kick out of. I certainly enjoyed it a lot.

Coffee with Kenobi: Book Chat with James Luceno focuses on the author’s latest Star Wars book, Tarkin. Now James has been doing the circuit on various podcasts, so you may have heard him interviewed elsewhere. Some of the questions and answers covers some familiar ground–his approach to the character, working with the story group, unveiling Palpatine’s name–but Jim also talks about focusing on the relationships. On one hand, there’s Tarkin’s relationship with Vader, and on the other is his relationship with Palpatine. He also talks about the Emperor and his ultimate goals. Overall it’s a very fluid discussion with good questions and enlightening conversation. If you’ve heard him on other podcasts, this one is still worth checking out.

Episode #26 kicks off with news, The Force Awakens title, Dave Filoni talking about Luminara, theme park news, and the Bearded Trio chimes in with their usual news segment. For the main discussion, they have special guest James Schron from Bombad Radio on to talk about the Jedi Order. They cover the significance of family and passion, bringing balance to the Force, and of course Anakin. What’s really fun is how they weave it altogether with the original trilogy, the prequels, TCW and Star Wars Rebels. It was also very amusing to hear James keep bringing up elements from the EU and the hosts constantly reminding him that none of that is canon. Us EU fans are a diehard bunch, and I have to admit it’s hard to let go of all that lore, especially when chances are high that authors will weave it back in with the upcoming novels. Aside from the Jedi Order, they also discuss lightsabers, the importance of their colors, and who welded what color blade. Ending the show off is some listener feedback, most of it focusing on Padme, which provides a nice examination of her character. Great show. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Wired Interview with Matt Lanter

September 20, 2012 at 5:59 am | Posted in Interview, The Clone Wars | Leave a comment

Wired interviewed The Clone Wars voice actor Matt Lanter and posted five quick questions covering the affect of Star Wars on newer generations and his views on the films.

What’s your favorite Star Wars movie and why?

ML: Oh, man. A lot of people might gawk at it, but I really love Revenge of the Sith because of what happens to Anakin. I think I watched the prequels before I watched the originals, so maybe that was more of my childhood than the originals were. And it’s really an emotional movie: huge events happening; the turn and fall of all that is good. I dig that one. But I also love Jedi, and I love Empire. So … (laughing) half of them are my favorites.
