FANGIRLS GOING ROGUE #19 with TIYA SIRCAR! Star Wars Rebels’ return is less than a month away, and Fangirls Going Rogue talk to Tiya Sircar about Sabine’s future and enjoying the show with family. Bethany Blanton from Star Wars Report joins the show to discuss the Vanity Fair The Force Awakens media blitz and The Clone Wars characters in Disney Infinity. Tricia Barr shares her insight from the first week of Star Wars Weekends and her book tour for Ultimate Star Wars. Sarah Woloski talks about the Disneyland Tinkerbell Half-Marathon and gives tips for entering the second Star Wars Marathon. Teresa Delgado leads a fantastic discussion about George Lucas’ legacy and the most important choices he made. The character discussion dives into our fangirl crushes and the reasons why loving characters can make stories more impactful.
Here excerpts from our live show on the podcast stage, with special guests Kay from FANgirl Blog, Aaron Goins from Star Wars Bookworms and Johnamarie Macias from The Wookiee Gunner. Everyone shares their #fangirlflail moment from the convention.
Beyond our podcast stage show, Saturday proved very special with the Star Wars Rebels Season 2 rollout. Teresa Delgado had a special flail moment when she interviewed Freddie Prinze, Jr., the voice of Kanan on Star Wars Rebels. Tricia Barr asked the last question at the Star Wars Rebels Press Conference. Sarah Woloski went on a special assignment to the Red Carpet and got to chat with Dave Filoni, Ashley Eckstein, Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar and Taylor Gray.
Of course, The Force Awakens second teaser had to be discussed. The official verdict: it was amazing!
Also amazing at the convention, the merchandise, including Ewoks plushies coming from Disney Parks and fashion forward apparel from Her Universe and We Love Fine. The Fangirls were excited to see their Fangirls Going Rogue t-shirts around the con.
Since Sarah missed the character discussion to attend the Red Carpet, we gave her a chance to weigh in on the Ewoks and Teresa’s pitch for a dark Ewok book penned by James Luceno. Do it, Del Rey!
We would again like to take the opportunity to thank our listeners who supported the fankids at our show with generation donations of Leia, Hera and Sabine merchandise. If we missed you in the show, please drop us an email. We would like to thank each and everyone personally.
