Jim Hill starts off this week’s show by starting a story about how two New Hampshire communities came together to make a Star Wars fan’s dying wish come through. Then Dan Zehr talks about his favorite aspects of Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ ambitious new attraction, “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance”


Over the course of today’s episode, listeners will learn about:

How it would be far easier to overlook John Boyega accidentally misplacing the “Rise of Skywalker” screenplay if he were 17 years-old versus 27 years-old

What (according to Dan Z) is the key difference between “Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run” and “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance”

Why – in spite of Disney’s best efforts (EX: removing the names of the individual tracks on the “Rise of Skywalker” soundtrack over on the Studio’s “For Your Consideration” webpage) – Star Wars fans still found ways to spoil the story on this J.J. Abrams film in advance

What Cast Members at the Walt Disney World Resort are doing to help smooth over the operational issues that “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” had had to date

Why the online trolls who complain about relatively minor things like Rose Tico aren’t representative of the far larger / big-hearted Star Wars fan community
