Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about how the lackluster sales of toys related to “Solo: A Star Wars Story” may have made some big box stories think twice about opening early on Triple Force Friday. They also talk about which veteran cast member from the Marvel Cinematic Universe might wind up in Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie


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

Why the folks who work the “Star Wars” side of the street at Parks, Experiences & Products were frustrated by Disney’s decision to piggyback their “Frozen Fan Event” on top of Triple Force Friday

How the “Star Wars: Resistance” animated series is dovetailing into the story that “The Force Awakens” and “The Last Jedi” told

Why Hasbro’s decision to hold back 35% of the “Rise of Skywalker” toys they’ve produced (so as not to give away too many story-related secrets from this J.J. Abrams movie) meant that there wasn’t a lot of Rose Tico merch on store shelves

Why Star Wars fans need to pick up a copy of the latest edition of the Oxford English Dictionary

Why Bob Iger deliberately bumped up what The Walt Disney Company had originally planned on paying for Lucasfilm
