Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by discussing the factors involved with The Walt Disney Company’s decision to move up the opening of Disneyland Park’s Black Spire Outpost to May 31st. They then take an in-depth look at “Star Wars Resistance” and offer conjecture on where this Lucasfilm Animation production might be headed when Season 2 starts up on the Disney Channel later this Fall


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

The noise that the audience in the Anaheim Arena made when the teaser trailer for “Star Wars – Episode VII: The Force Awakens” at the 2015 edition of Star Wars Celebration

The historic parallels between Disneyland Park in the Summer of 1955 and Anaheim’s version of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” in the late Spring of 2019

How the “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” will be changed to reflect how Disney’s Hollywood Studios has be repositioned over the past 30 years (i.e., transforming from a theme park that takes you behind-the-scenes in Tinsel Town to becoming a place that places you right in the middle of the action in some of your favorite films & television shows)

How the March 2013 announcement that “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” would be winding down production initially negatively impacted people’s perceptions of the Lucasfilm Animation production that immediately followed, “Star Wars Rebels”

How “Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures” shorts are introducing the next generation of fans to the original trilogy & the prequels
