(Semi) Important intercepts from around the Internet
MakingStarWars.net — Weekends are busy and can get in the way of our Star Wars geekdom. Enjoy some detritus from the galactic dustbin…
Pablo’s Patter and Steele Saunders Saunters
Besides being a fun spin around the Star Wars universe, from movie news to canon updates, “Kyo” Ken Napzok and his friends on Collider Jedi Council often dive into some specifics. This week those specifics included analyzing tweets from Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo, which often provide insights that fill in the gaps for fans.While discussing
While discussing The Book of Henry, Perri Nemiroff also spoke to Star Wars: Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow about his views on the saga and its canon.
BTW: Don’t miss Steele Saunders interviewing Napzok and his other crew, the ForceCenter crew–Jennifer Landa and Joseph Scrimshaw–on their podcast. Steele also appeared on the ForceCenter podcast earlier this year.
How did Ezra Ignite the Green?
Star Wars Explained posted their weekly Q&A. This week included queries included musings about Ezra’s green lightsaber, Leia’s knowledge of Shmi Skywalker, and Inferno Squad and its possible influence on “Operation Cinder.”
Alex also posted an informative video, which also speaks to all the info you probably didn’t garner by not reading the young adult book Rey’s Survival Guide.
MSW profiled Star Wars Explained earlier this year.
Janina Gavankar, the voice and visage of Commander Iden Versio in the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront 2, posted a photo from a recording booth, indicating she has started narrating Christie Golden’s Battlefront II: Inferno Squad.

From the Source
From more official sources, StarWars.com’s Dan Zehr takes a spin around the “Comic Book Galaxy,” this time discussing Marvel’s latest releases including Darth Vader #1.
Meanwhile, the Star Wars Show’s Andi Gutierrez sits down for an extended interview with Thrawn author, Timothy Zahn. Also, if you missed Andi’s interview with Janina, check it out. “It’s good TV…” said Gutierrez.
LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures returned on Saturday, June 17, with a sneak peek of the first episode of season two, “Trouble on Tibalt.”
Season two officially kicks off on Monday, July 31, (7:00 AM ET/PT) with new episodes continuing through mid-August.
Boosting the Signal
Finally, last week Jason Ward assigned me an article that ignited my imagination and my twitter feed. Looking for Leia, a crowd-funded project documentary about the girls and women of Star Wars fandom, recently lost a major donor. I spoke to Annalise Ophelian for MSW and then looked to “signal boost” this important cause.
I for one, desperately want to see this film completed (and so should you).
If you have the means to help, please do. They’ve currently raised $19,235 of an all-or-nothing $25,000 goal that comes due on Saturday, June 24, at 2:50 AM.

The above is not intended to be a comprehensive list; just a way to get your fandom kickstarted on dreaded #MustafarMonday. If I’ve missed anything that you think I should point browsers to this week, please hit me up on Twitter @jmbishopjr. You can also shoot me questions to ask Ms. Nemiroff and Garrick “Biggs” Hagon for two upcoming articles. JB
