Recapping events from last month, Sarah shares the happenings from the first Star Wars runDisney Star Wars Half-Marathon at Disneyland, and Tricia talks about the grand opening of the Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars and the Power of Costume Smithsonian touring exhibit in Seattle, where she had a chance to interview Anthony Daniels.
The Fangirls interview Jenna Busch of Legion of Leia, a project that started as a place to highlight female fans of Star Wars and which has now expanded into one of the leading geek-centric websites. The discussion focuses on the male and female fans who have been inspired by Star Wars’ leading ladies, and also on the continued trend in merchandise to remove female characters. Check out Jenna’s latest article for Metro “Girls Want Superhero Toys, Too.” Connect with Jenna Busch on Twitter either at @JennaBusch or @LegionofLeiaand on Facebook.
The character discussion doubles down on the fun and focuses on Star Wars couples. While Tricia wears her ‘shipper flag proudly, Teresa and Sarah think outside the box for a few of their picks. With the help of the listeners, the favorite Star Wars couple is revealed. As always, the discussion isn’t over when the show ends. Drop us a voicemail at 331-213-8657 and tell us who your favorite Star Wars couple is.
