Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this episode by discussing the latest news coming off of the set of "The Mandalorian." These two then answer a piece of listener mail regarding when the Anaheim version of "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" will be open to the public. Finally, Dan talks about his experience at this year's Gala at Rancho Obi-Wan.


Over the course of this episode of the "Looking at Lucasfilm" podcast, listeners will learn about:

* How some of the props features in "The Mandalorian" actually take their inspiration from that "Star Wars Holiday Special" which aired back in November of 1978

* Which "Star Wars" prequel film George Lucas originally wanted the ride film for "Star Tours 2.0" to be based on

* Why Star Wars fans are still talking about the "Magic of Lucasfilm" exhibit that was staged at the Marin County Fair back in 1988

* What are some of the rarer / most exclusive pieces that "Star Wars" collector extraordinaire Steve Sansweet has on display at Rancho Obi-Wan

* Why Lucasfilm staffers are excited about "Star Wars: Project Porg," the latest product out of ILMxLAB
