We celebrate awesome news on Episode 29 of Fangirls Going Rogue. Episode VIII has begun filming, we have a new website design thanks to FANgirl’s Geek Kay, and The Force Awakens crossed the $2 billion mark! And that is just a start.
Slowly #WheresRey is becoming #HeresRey as Rey-centric merchandise hits shelves. Keep tweeting your finds to @FGGoingRogue. We love to see them! How exciting is it to see Kathleen Kennedy dubbed “The Most Powerful Woman in Hollywood” by Vanity Fair? Tricia Barr, Teresa Delgado, and Sarah Woloski talk about this and more in our latest news segment that feels more like a pajama party.
Then it is on to a fun and insightful interview with author Jason Fry, who has written a ton of Star Wars books, including Rey’s Survival Guide and The Force Awakens: Incredible Cross-Sections. We ask about his Star Wars Rebels tie-in Servants of the Empire book series and his Jupiter Pirates series. Jason explains the challenges of age labels on books, and why adults will enjoy his books for kids. You can find more thoughts from Jason on his Tumblr page.
Honoring his work on the Star Wars galactic map, Jason joins this month’s character discussion, featuring our passengers of choice on a trip to a planet that inspires our adventures.
