Dan Zehr & Jim Hill discuss everything from “Solo” ‘s under-performance at the box office to the online trolls who went after Kelli Marie Tran. They also talk about some of the happier things that happened in the Star Wars sphere over the past year, including the resurrection of the “Clone Wars” animated series and the promise of “The Mandalorian” over at Disney +


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Which soon-to-be-released films Disney PR opted to promote in Times Square on New Year’s Eve instead of “Star Wars – Episode IX”

Lucasfilm’s parallel efforts to not only create movies & TV shows that will entertain (or -- at the very least -- appease) older Star Wars fans while, at the exact same time, creating content that will bring the next generation of fans through the door

What it was like to be in the room at San Diego Comic-Con this past July when Dave Filoni revealed that brand-new episodes of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” (which had been cancelled back in March of 2013) were now being produced for Disney +

How Disney Studio’s decision to “tap the brakes” on Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars Story” film franchise result in “Indiana Jones V” ‘s release date being pushed back from July 2020 to July 2021

How The Walt Disney Company is using things like “Star Wars: Pirate’s Price” (i.e., a Disney Press publication aimed at 9 – 12 year-old readers) to help familiarize folks with Black Spire Outpost
