Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by paying tribute to two industry vets with ties to the Star Wars franchise that we’ve recently lost. They then talk about that TikTok video which suggests that the Skywalker Saga should be retitle


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

Why Joe Johnston -- rather than Jim & Ken Wheat -- directed Wilfred Brimley in most of his scenes for “Ewoks: The Battle for Endor”

Which character did Mark Hamill voice for “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” animated series

How did ILM working on the FX for “Cocoon” eventually lead to Ron Howard being hired to direct “Willow”

Why John Boyega might be a wee bit premature when it comes to his “I’ve-moved-on”-from-Star-Wars announcement

How much was George Lucas originally supposed to get paid from writing, directing & producing “Star Wars -- Episode IV: A New Hope”
