Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by talking about how (based on what happened with “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”) “Episode IX” really was wrapped production. They then talk about Ron Miller’s role in persuading George Lucas to let the Imagineers develop some rides, shows & attractions based on Lucasfilm productions for the Disney Parks


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

How late in the editing process did Gareth Edwards & Jabez Olssen decide that they really needed to add that Darth Vader lightsaber fight to “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”

How the storyline that Lucasfilm Animation is telling with “Star Wars: Resistance” is just now finally syncing up with key plot points from “Star Wars: Episode VII -- The Force Awakens”

That time when Dan was flown out to Hollywood by Target to take part in the shoot for a “Star Wars” -related commercial

The very best strategy to deploy if you’re looking to make the most of “Triple Force Friday” (Mark your calendar, kids. This nationwide retail event is being held on October 4, 2019)

What Imagineer Mark Eades had to explain to George Lucas about the way the ride film for “Star Wars” was going to work
