Throwback Thursday with Rogue One

April 8, 2016

Greetings friends!


It's been a while, but with the release of the teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, how could we not have an episode about it!

Today Craig, Lecie, and Ric break down the trailer. What we thought, some speculation, and The Viceroy closes the show out with a soapbox rant about internet idiots that complain about the female lead castings in Star Wars. This one's got some language in the end segment, so fair warning.

We don't have any specific news yet as to what we'll be doing for Rogue One come this December, but trust us, there will be an event of some sort, and we hope to have details to you soon!

We made it! Twelve days of family and fun, all culminated with our 12/17 showing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the TCL Chinese Theater IMAX, here in Hollywood, CA. Oh, and did we mention we got invited to the red carpet world premier, and after-party?!


What did Craig, Lecie, Shawn, and Ric think of the film? Just what is Post-Line Withdrawl? Who was the line member actually IN the movie? There's a little bit of everything in this episode, so now that everyone's Green for TFA, let's get on with the show! 

PS - The line may be over, but you can still donate to Starlight all the way through December 31st! We'd love it if you could take a moment and help brighten a child and their family's day. We still have the two options available.

#1 - Head over to our GIVEactually page and make a donation in any value amount. Please click on the blue "GIVE" button on the bottom of the page (not the top), to ensure your donation is recorded as a part of our charity event. Any and everything is appreciated.

The line is live, and the media frenzy begins! Craig, Shawn, Ric, and Lecie tell how crazy Tuesday was, when the media descended upon the line like a Wampa hoarde. Then Ric interviews his daughter Eliza, and Lecie takes time to talk to some new line members, before moving on to some grizzled old veterans of the line. Audio taken from 12/6 thru 12/8.

Episode 3 - The Kids Awaken

December 1, 2015
In our third episode, meet the youngest prequel line participants: Tim Haasis, Rose Drew, and Dallas Ross. Find out what it was like to be under 10 years old, and on the streets of Hollywood for six weeks. What they thought about the lines, the prequels, and how Star Wars shaped them into the young adults they are today. In our new episodic segment "Ric's 5, Standing By", Tim breaks down the angsty character of Darth Vader, Rose lets people know she'll disown her kids if they don't like Star Wars, and you can all but sense 'dem feels that Dallas exudes as he talks Clone Wars and Rebels.

We'd love it if you joined our great event and cause by heading over and signing up on our pre-registration page, and don't forget to come on down this coming Saturday, December 5th at noon to the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood! We're gonna kick things off with a bang! We'll be doing live interviews and broadcasts throughout the line, so if you want to be on the show, find us at the Chinese!

Episode 2 - Thanking the Maker!

November 25, 2015
In this week's Thanksgiving episode, Viceroy Craig, Obi-Shawn, Kilted Jedi Ric, and Jedi-Kitty Lecie discuss what they have to be thankful for when it comes to Star Wars and the line. We talk delicious line traditions, give shout-outs and lament places and people no longer with us, telling your significant other about how much of a Star Wars fan you are, spoiler levels and respect, and...do geeks really look down on other geeks for their Star Wars knowledge??

Nothing can keep us down and totally amped for the upcoming line, not even the pesky audio gremlins that reared their heads on this recording! Sorry folks. We're sure to do better next time. It was our second podcast, and we're still getting used to our programming!

If you like what you hear and want to join us in Hollywood in just over a week, head over and sign up on our pre-registration page, or come on down on December 5th at noon to the Chinese Theatre!

Episode 1 - The Pod Starts Here

November 17, 2015
In our first episode, get to know your hosts: Craig, Lecie, Ric, and Shawn, as they discuss lining up for Star Wars across the decades. From what it was like in 1977, the 1999 prequel-fever, to the ill-fated 2005 line for Revenge of the Sith. But through it all, is our charity, The Starlight Children's Foundation. An amazing organization that helps improve the quality of life for kids and their families across the globe.

We discuss the line rules, badges and what it means to be Red, Blue, or Green, our favorite line moments, and as a special bonus, Ric takes part in an interview with Vanessa Marshall, who plays Hera on Star Wars: Rebels! She is completely gung-ho about our line, and can't wait to see us!

If you like what you hear and want to join us in Hollywood come this December, head over and sign up on our pre-registration page, or come on down on December 5th at noon to the Chinese Theatre!

If you can't join us, but would like to make a contribution to Starlight, head over to their GIVEActually page and make a donation in any value amount. Any and everything is appreciated. It's not how much you give, but that you give, that counts.

A special thank you to Adam over at Jogcast Radio for sending us a copy of the Vanessa Marshall interview, since our own recording was faulty. Lando says it's not his fault!
