After The Force Awakens trailer was unleashed, is Teresa Delgado any closer to the answer to the question #WhatsaSnoke? She discusses that and more with her fellow fangirls Tricia Barr and Sarah Woloski as they share their favorite moments from the new Star Wars footage. Girl Power is everywhere in the latest marketing push for the movie. Sarah, Teresa, and Tricia break down the latest from Gwendoline Christie’s admission of being a fangirl, Carrie Fisher’s interview of Daisy Ridley, and the amazing Duracell commercial. Then they discuss the rumors of the Slave Leia costume’s retirement. Fangirls Going Rogue listeners share their excitement over Star Wars Rebels Season 2 and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Seventh Sister. Wear Star Wars Share Star Wars Day is December 4 this year. Author Carrie Goldman stops by to explain all the ways fans can participate and gives us an update on her daughter Katie, who Star Wars fans rallied behind six years ago when she was bullied for being a fangirl. This month’s character discussion ponders Rey’s answer to the question “Who are you?” What about the line “I’m no one” makes her relatable to everyone?

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.

Amy Ratcliffe is back to help with working on our Fangirl Flair from last month’s starter ideas.

Did you notice all the Star Wars nods in the Oscars? Well, so did Teresa. She wanted to talk about that and the snub of superhero movies. Tricia and Sarah had opinions of their own.

You might have seen Jennifer Landa’s amazing Star Wars wedding photos on places like People.com. We just had to ask her about those and also her geek-themed YouTube channel. Say hi to Jen on Twitter@JenniferLanda.

It is time to get started on fangirl flair ideas for the convention. Amy Ratcliffe from Geek With Curves and StarWars.com stops by share some ideas like custom jewelry, shoes, or headbands.

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.

In 2015, Star Wars will be bigger, better, and even more worthy of #fangirlflails! To keep up with the fandom happenings, co-hosts Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr turned to one of their podcasting friends, Sarah Woloski from Skywalking Through Neverland, to help cover this amazing era of the franchise.

Lucasfilm’s Senior Editor Jen Heddle’s piece on Marvel’s return to Star Wars comics got us excited for this week’s Star Wars #1 release. Teresa shares her initial thoughts after reading the issue. This weekend, Sarah will be running in the first Star Wars runDisney Star Wars Half-Marathon at Disneyland. At the end of the month, Tricia attends the grand opening of the Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars and the Power of Costume Smithsonian touring exhibit in Seattle, where Anthony Daniels is scheduled to appear.

After Sarah shares her passion for Star Wars and its music, the fangirls discuss Vanessa Marshall’s comments in her EW.com interview on whether Kanan and Hera are space-married. Feel free to share your thoughts on Fangirls Going Rogue’sFacebook page or Twitter.

With the help of our amazing listeners, Luke Skywalker was chosen for this episode’s character discussion. The discussion isn’t over when the show ends. Drop us a voicemail at 331-213-8657 and tell us what movie has your favorite version of Luke in it.

After the podcast, check out the latest episode of Fangirl Chat, where Tricia and Geek Kay talk to Star Wars author and fangirl extraordinaire Tish Pahl about the history of fandom and convention tales with legends like Timothy Zahn, Michael Stackpole, and Aaron Allston.

On this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue, Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr invite Geek Girl Diva from EW.com’s Star Wars Rebels community and Jedi Tink, Sarah Woloski from Skywalking Through Neverland, to celebrate Star Wars Rebels and The Force Awakens teaser trailer.

After pondering the possibilities of BB-8’s head dome – Does it float? How is it connected? – the girls did some party planning based on The Busy Spatula’s Rebels Party Planning post.

In our last episode, Greg Weisman discussed the Bechdel Test in relation to creating Star Wars Rebels stories, and this month Geek Girl Diva’s article on Hera and Sabine over at EW.com continued that discussion. That segued into an interesting character on Sabine and her role in the show.

To close out the show Tricia shared her interview with Anne Neumann of Rancho Obi-Wan, which just kicked off its recruiter program.

Help Rancho Obi-Wan continue its mission to inspire with the Force of imagination and get yourself some exclusive swag: Become a Rancho Recruiter!

With a nod to the early days of the Official Star Wars Fan Club and its Rebel Recruiter membership drive, we’re seeking current members’ help to grow our membership.

Nov 19, 2014

On this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue, Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr share listener voicemails and emails, plus congratulatory messages from our fellow podcasters for our first year anniversary. Teresa and Tricia take a look back at our earliest plans and what they achieved. Thanks to Teresa literally chasing down Mary Franklin at Star Wars Weekends, they nabbed their dream interview going into the year.

Talk about an interview to kick off the next year: special guest Star Wars Rebels executive producer Greg Weisman offers wisdom on creating great female characters and insights into working with the Story Group.  Tricia has a really fun moment when she explains her analysis of character interaction, that each character has their own gravity, and Greg Weisman says that’s spot on. If you listen carefully, you can hear her #fangirlflail. (And yes, that hashtag counts as another amazing accomplishment for this year!) Follow Greg Weisman on Twitter, where you can hear more about his upcoming Kanan comic from Marvel and find out more about his novels. Here is Johnmarie Macias’ review of Spirits of Ash and Foam at The Wookiee Gunner.

An episode wouldn’t be complete without some discussion of Star Wars merchandise. Have you started shopping for your favorite fangirl or fanboy? The Fangirls suggest Think Geek and Her Universe as a place to start. For a special custom gift, try Star Wars Celebration artist Shea Standefer’s custom name art. They have a few more awesome ideas in the episode.

The closing character discussion went to the scoundrel side with Han Solo. Did he shoot first? Fangirls Going Rogue wants to hear what you think? Special thanks to Aaron Goins from Star Wars Bookworms for jumpstarting the discussion on Twitter.

On this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue, Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr report back on their convention trips, including interviews with Steve Blum (Zeb) and Greg Ellis (Baron Ruhdor) from Star Wars Rebels. Plus we unveil a new logo courtesy of RebelForce Radio’s Jimmy Mac and artist Chris Amorim.

Listener emails always make us smile, and we’ve received even more mail this month from fanboys who love the show. Star Wars truly is for everyone! One email led to a discussion of ways to give back beyond the costuming fan organizations. Our suggestions include Force For the Cure and Cat Taber’s Games for Soldiers, which we highlighted in our first episode.

The opening of ILM’s studio in London gave us a chance to talk about a couple of important women leading Lucasfilm into the future: Kathleen Kennedy and Lynwen Brennan. Kathleen Kennedy mentioned during the opening that Episode VII filming was nearing its conclusion, which is exciting, and also gave us a chance to talk about spoiler etiquette in the age of social media.

In addition to Teresa’s awesome interviews from Fanboy Expo with the voices of Zeb and Baron Ruhdor, Steve Blum and Greg Ellis, we did a written interview with Star Wars Rebels artist extraordinaire Amy Beth Christenson. She is a lifelong fangirl who was inspired to draw Star Wars by her aunt. We hope you’ll check out her full interview either at FANgirl or Jedi News. Amy Beth Christenson won the Judge’s Choice for the Her Universe San Diego Comic-Con Fashion Show, which was just released on Nerdist.com.

The closing character discussion was admittedly a bit of a lovefest, since it featured a favorite character for both hosts: Ahsoka Tano.

You can find Steve Blum and Greg Ellis on Twitter. Send them a tweet to let them know how much you love Star Wars Rebels and the interview.

On this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue, Mary Franklin joins Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr to discuss her journey to an awesome job at Lucasfilm and preview Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. You can follow Mary on Twitter at @MaryLFL and Celebration news at @SW_Celebration.

After kicking off with listener emails, Tricia and Teresa brought in Johnamarie Macias (The Wookiee Gunner, Fangirl Next Door) and Erich Schoeneweiss (Del Rey, Star Wars Books) to talk about the amazing hype leading up to the Star Wars Rebels launch this week. We cover San Diego Comic-Con, Dragon Con, the New York City screening of Star Wars Rebels, as well as preview New York Comic Con and GeekGirlCon.

Also discussed are the amazing new issue of Star Wars Insider #152 and the latest novel, A New Dawn. Johna and Erich are fans to watch on Twitter. Check them out at @BlueJaigEyes and @Darth_Duff. Don’t forget to keep your eye on the Star Wars Books Facebook for news on upcoming novels.

The character discussion took a life of its own when we debated the sentience of droids like R2-D2 and C-3PO.

On this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue, Steve Glosson of Geek Out Loud joins Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr for a lively and fun discussion about Star Wars.

Before getting started, the hosts sent their thoughts and prayers out to Robin Williams and his loved ones.

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Phone Number

1-800-273-8255

After the segue to end all segues, Teresa shared listener emails on a variety of topics, including cosplay and fandom fatherhood. The ladies are always happy to hear that listeners are surprised they enjoy hearing about Star Wars from the fangirl perspective!

After the Fangirls bestowed Steve with the title of honorary fangirl, he shared his first memories of Star Wars – falling asleep during The Empire Strikes Back! – and what being a fan means to him.

What’s new in Star Wars? Apparently a lot! Tricia, Teresa, and Steve shared their favorites. They include the new Star Wars Rebels clips, Vanessa Marshall and Tiya Sircar being admitted into the Mandalorian Mercs, San Diego Comic-Con’s Hallmark exclusives, A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller, Episode VII filming in Ireland, a fanfilm with ties to a University of Georgia football star, and Kevin Smith’s reaction to his visit to Pinewood Studios.

After an explanation of Justin Bolger’s tweet from the Star Wars Rebels panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Steve helped the fangirls talk about the double standards that exist in fandom. A tweet by a Star Wars parody account also was discussed.

Gatekeeping in fandom wasn’t going to dull the enthusiasm on the show for all things Star Wars on the horizon. Teresa looks forward to Star Wars Itty Bitties, and Tricia to the last Legacy Volume 2 comic issue and Fantasy Flight’s RPG Age of Rebellion.

The character discussion got a bit hairy this episode as Steve chose Chewbacca. We considered his place in the saga, his death, and whether the Wookiee should always win.

Be sure to check out Steve’s shows including Geek Out Loud and Disney Vault Talk, which is co-hosted by Teresa. Follow Steve on Twitter at @GeekOutLoud.

For Episode 9 of Fangirls Going Rogue, Tricia and Teresa decided to have a slumber party.

Before our guest arrived, we interviewed Ashley Eckstein. She recapped the incredible response to the Her Universe Star Wars fashion at Star Wars Weekends, then shared some insights into her Marvel line and the San Diego Comic-Con Fashion Show. FANgirl recapped the social media buzz from the show and Popsugar has a gallery of all the fashion from the runway.

Fabulous fangirl Consetta Parker of Parker Publicity joined the slumber party. She shared a fascinating look at her path to a geek career and told some cool details about the Rancho Obi-Wan Gala in September. Between pillow fights and glitter throwing a number of topics were discussed, including the wide coverage Star Wars is getting from major media, the Lucas Museum’s choosing its location as Chicago, and the marvelous way Star Wars Katie and the 501st helped another bullied fangirl enjoy her fandom. With Consetta being a huge Harrison Ford fan, talk turned to his injury and fan response to it. Listener feedback was sprinkled throughout the episode.

Mother Talzin was the focus of the character discussion. She might be one of the fangirls’ favorite characters.

Check out Consetta’s website Parker Publicity for more information. You can find her on Twitter@ParkerPublicity.

The title of this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue pretty much says it all: Vanessa Marshall and The Fangirls are B.F.F.s! Teresa and I interview the voice of Hera Syndulla, the Twi’lek pilot from Star Wars Rebels. We talk about Star Wars Weekends and connecting with fans. We both had a chance to meet Vanessa in person at Weekend One, and watched how engaged she was interacting with fans at her signings. Her passion for Star Wars, and her enthusiasm for the franchise as a fellow longtime fan, was infectious at the Behind the Force stage show, as well. And of course we made sure to include a fangirl flail in our conversation!

After our interview with Vanessa, Bethany Blanton from Star Wars Report joins us to break down the Sabine and Ezra clips from the Behind the Force shows at Weekends Two and Three, respectively. Bethany attended Weekend Two, dropping by for the RebelForce Radio meet-up and the group ride on Star Tours, so we had much to discuss. In addition, Teresa shares how much fun she had seeing “A Conversation With Mark Hamill” on Weekend Four.

Be sure not to miss our Fangirl Chat with Bethany about Star Wars Weekends or the Star Wars Report episode recapping their adventure. The RebelForce Radio episode with Jimmy Mac’s extensive report from Weekend Two’s meet-up is a ton of fun to listen. See if you can catch the fangirl flail in the background about halfway through.

Star Wars Weekends wasn’t our only topic of discussion this month, though. Shortly before we recorded came the news of the casting of Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie in Episode VII. We express our excitement about the addition of two talented, high-profile actresses to the cast, and also share our perspectives about how fans engage with Episode VII speculation and spoilers. Here’s the FANgirl Ridley Roundup with video of stunt actress Chloe Bruce, in case you want to see what got Tricia so excited.

Finally, this month’s character discussion features the Jedi Order. Is the Jedi Order a character unto itself within the franchise? Tune into the episode to find out.

Special thanks to Tracy Cannobbio at Lucasfilm.

This month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue focuses on Star Wars Weekends, which kick off on Friday, May 16th, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. Aaron Goins of Star Wars Bookworms joins Teresa and me to discuss the numerous ways to enjoy the event, including planning tips on dining, shows, and meeting VIPs.

In addition, Teresa and I passed along more advice in our post at the Star Wars Blog: 10 Star Wars Weekends Tips (or Special Modifications). Hopefully you’ll find our suggestions useful for hitting the highlights at Hollywood Studios like the celebrity motorcade and Star Tour while also staying hydrated and un-sunburned in the process.

For our character discussion this month, we dive into the dark depths of Darth Maul Here is the link to the show!

Teresa and I were both at Star Wars Weekends today. You can view pictures on my Instagram @Fangirlcantina, including our meet-up with Vanessa Marshall. Thoughts and observations from the first day:

  • The Behind The Force show with Ashley Eckstein and Vanessa Marshall now has its own stormtrooper intro. Ashley “Ahsoka” Eckstein comes out in Jedi robes in the opening skit. Vanessa Marshall joined her onstage and talked about voicing Mary Jane Watson on Spectacular Spider-Manand Irwin on The Grim Adventures of Bill & Mandy. The cast introduction video starts with Freddie Prinze, Jr., and includes the five members of the sentient hero cast. Dave Filoni’s video gave a walking tour of the Rebels production office and introduced many of the key team members. They have a full-size Princess Leia statue in one hallway! Joel Aron was working on animating clouds, and Athena Portillo was spotted in her R2-D2 hoodie. Speaking of Artoo, he and Chopper were smack-talking each other outside Dave Filoni’s office. Chopper snuck inside and stole a Darth Vader flashdrive, which he delivered in person to Ashley so we could all see a secret clip from an episode of Rebels titled “The Machine in the Ghost.” The animation looks fantastic, and the colors were vibrant and beautiful. The space battle action sequence was very reminiscent of A New Hopeand the banter with Hera, Kanan, and Chopper had the clip and zingers of The Empire Strikes Back. There’s definitely some chemistry between Kanan and Hera, but Chopper certainly didn’t seem to mind interrupting their moment. I loved the visual of Kanan leaning down from the gun turret to (try to) countermand Hera’s orders to Chopper while rotating around to fire at TIEs; it’s a shot that looks great in animation but wouldn’t have been feasible on a practical set in 1976. The fact that Chopper has arms allows him to emote visually as well as the beeps and boops we’re used to from Artoo. We have been told there will be a different clip shown each weekend.
  • I wouldn’t get your hopes up to see Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca running around the sets like the old days. He wasn’t very mobile.
  • Ahmed Best looked very dapper in his suit and hat ensemble, and had long lines for his autographing.
  • The Her Universe store was packed (I had to wait in line to use the changing room) and the merchandise looks fabulous.
  • I saw lots of families bringing their young girls into Star Tours. It made my fangirl heart swell.
  • The Symphony in the Stars fireworks rocked.

Much more about the first weekend next week. Until then, follow us on our social media.

The sixth episode of Fangirls Going Rogue was an adventure through fandom. Tricia and Teresa shared their exciting trips to Lucasfilm and SXSW, respectively, then started planning their next great adventure together at Star Wars Weekends this summer. Mark Hamill has been announced for Week IV in June, but starting May the Fourth you can dine with Star Wars characters in one of two dining experiences at Hollywood Studios. Next month’s episode will have more tips and tricks for Star Wars Weekends. Don’t forget RebelForce Radio will be hitting the event on Week II (May 23-25).

While Teresa rocked her Rogues fashion on a trip to Disney, Ashley Eckstein announced a fashion show that will be hosted by Her Universe at San Diego Comic-Con. This is a chance for fans to become designers, so get out your sketchbook and scissors and start creating.

When we dove into the things we are looking forward to, Her Universe’s unannounced line for Star Wars Weekends topped Teresa’s list. Tricia’s copy of The Empire Striketh Back from Quirk Books had just arrived and she was eager to dive in. The discussion was inspired by a post on Star Wars Books Facebook page. Feel free to share what you’re looking forward to either in voicemail, email or social media.

It wouldn’t be an episode of Fangirls Going Rogue if the ladies didn’t pitch a story idea. After discussing some of the “upsets” in StarWars.com’s This Is Madness bracket challenge, Tricia wondered why there were nohandmaidens. That turned into a conversation about handmaidens as the protagonists of secret operative adventure stories in the vein of James Bond. Tricia dug out some Prequel Trilogy era RPG reference books. Check out Secrets of Naboo for all the cool abilities attributed to the handmaidens. In The Force Unleashed Campaign Guide, it is revealed that Sabé traveled the galaxy as a Rebel recruiter and also trained Leia and Winter. There would be a great opportunity to work her character into Star Wars Rebels as we see the Rebellion picking up steam.

The fangirls took some time to shout-outs their favorite podcasts. What Tricia and Teresa couldn’t manage was the name of “that guy on That 70’s Show…” Recently, the RebelForce Radio Clone Wars Declassified have been revived to explore The Lost Missions. Tricia appeared on this week to discuss “The Disappeared.” On the main show, Dave Filoni sat down with Jimmy Mac and shared insights on the final The Clone Wars season. Also, the fangirls recommend the movie commentaries with Sam Witwer. Pop in the DVD or Blu-Ray and enjoy Star Wars in a new way. Some other favorites include Coffee With Kenobi, 1138 Radio, Star Wars Report, and Full of Sith. Oh, and that name is Topher Grace!

A new podcast, The Arkham Sessions, is hosted by fangirl Dr. Andrea Letamendi, who is both a die-hard Batman and Star Wars fan. Look at this resume:

Dr. Andrea Letamendi has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and has spoken about psychology and comic books, science fiction, and fantasy at conventions such as San Diego Comic-Con, WonderCon, and New York Comic Con. Star Wars fans have heard her on Full of Sith and Coffee With Kenobi. She has been interviewed by The Huffington Post, CNN.com, Psychology Today, UCLA Magazine, Badass Digest, andWired.com. Additionally, Dr. Letamendi’s work has been featured on The Hollywood Reporter, Yahoo News, and The Mary Sue.

Tricia and Teresa discussed with Drea a wide range of topics, from becoming a fangirl, the similarities between Darth Vader and Batman, and how fandom reacts to new fans. Drea will be appearing on several panels at Wondercon this weekend, including The Psychology of Star Trek vs Star Wars (with Catherine Taber and Chase Masterson), Batgirl Begins Again (with Gail Simone), and Multicultural Heroes in Comics.

Check out Drea’s website Under The Mask for more information. You can find her on Twitter@ArkhamAsylumDoc.

This month’s character discussion was a no-brainer: Hera Syndulla from Star Wars Rebels. Fans may not know a lot about this character, but there is enough potential to get really excited for her future in Star Wars. She’s a pilot, the owner of the Ghost, and voiced by enthusiastic fangirl Vanessa Marshall. If you haven’t read the interview with Vanessa at Newsarama, check it out! If you’re curious what else Teresa and Tricia have to say about Sabine, Kanan, and Star Wars Rebels, check out our Youtube channel, Fangirl Chat.

The March edition of Fangirls Going Rogue is up!

To start the show off, Teresa and Tricia play our first two listener voicemails, before getting straight to the heart of the matter on the fangirl reaction to the Star Wars Rebels character reveals during New York Toy Fair. Teresa said it best, and I’ll reiterate it here. Sometimes the meaning and sincerity of fans can be lost in 140 character tweets and prose blogs. We hope that our honest and open discussion highlights how passionate the female fans are, and why we feel it is important to ask for what we want. This isn’t just about us as fans, but truly, all fans, especially the littlest ones, who aren’t blogging and opining on social media.

The discussion revolved around Teresa’s post “The Great Gender Divide” at Jedi News, my post “Fangirls Ignite a Rebellion For Their Newest Star Wars Heroines” at FANgirl, and Lisa Granshaw’s article “Where are the Women in Star Wars: Rebels?” at The Daily Dot. Lisa provided great perspective as a long time fangirl who covers pop culture for many mainstream websites like The Daily Dot, NBCToday.com and Blastr. If you’re not following her on Twitter, now is the time!

Here are some of the articles we reference directly in the podcast:

Our special guest for this month was actress and extremely amazing fangirl Clare Grant. She talked about sharing her fandom with her friends from Team Unicorn and her husband Seth Green. With media often trying to show women pitted against one another, it was refreshing to hear Clare debunk the stereotype. Clare has some amazing projects in the works, including clothes designed for We Love Fine, a TV show Team Unicorn’s Saturday Action Fun Hour and two movies: Evil Nature and Phantom Halo. Tricia and Teresa had a chance to pick her brain on cosplay, voicing Latts Razzi on The Clone Wars, and making her award-winning fanfilm “Saber.” You can find Clare Grant on Twitter or her website.

Finally, inspired by the release of The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions, the character discussion focused on the one and only Yoda. Would we like to see more books or movies about the green Ninja frog? In keeping with tradition, Teresa and Tricia pitch a movie idea. You will have to tune in to find out what it was!

Fangirls Going Rogue welcomes Amy Ratcliffe of Star Wars Blog, IGN, and Nerdist.

Amy became a Star Wars fan through The Clone Wars, so we asked her about some of her favorite episodes. Keeping with our theme of exploring how to make the leap from fan to professional, Amy doles out advice: work hard, write, and write some more. Amy’s personal website Geek with Curvesshowcases how to build a fan résumé. Teresa and Tricia used Amy’s fashion sense to unlock the mystery of wearing leggings. Finally, the ladies chatted about February’s famous holiday: Valentine’s Day. Thanks to Star Wars Kidcast for their coverage of the holiday and specifically A Very Vader Valentine’s Day.

James Arnold Taylor stopped by for an amazing interview. He shared insights into the inspiration behind his new book JAT 365 and about experiencing Star Wars with the fankids in our lives. Teresa and Tricia both had a chance to offer testimonials on the ways James has inspired us. JAT 365 is an awesome tool to bring his positive outlook into your daily life.

For the character discussion this month, Tricia picked Asajj Ventress. Teresa posed the question, is magic the same thing as the Force? You’ll have to tune in to find out the responses, and feel free to weigh in. Keeping with the fashion theme, Tricia, Teresa, and Amy chose their favorite Asajj Ventress look.

The third episode of Fangirls Going Rogue welcomed the New Year with an informative and enthusiastic discussion with our esteemed guest, Mark Newbold of Radio 1138 and Jedi News. Tricia and Teresa shared some of their favorite feedback, filled with insights from fellow fans as well as questions for the hosts.

First up, Kim Kano’s email provided Tricia with a chance to explain the Bechdel Test and how it can be used to guide storytellers to include female characters in roles that don’t just have them supporting the male characters. Teresa reviewed the Vocativ infographic on 2013’s movies that did or didn’t pass the test (via The Mary Sue). Mark pointed out that the test is just one way to ensure women are treated equally on screen.

In his email to Fangirls Going Rogue, Matthew Munoz asked about the costumes for the female characters of Star Wars. Teresa and Tricia shared some quick thoughts on the topic and their own cosplaying experience. Previously they had appeared on a special podcast hosted by Star Wars Report that discussed feminism and the sexualization of female characters as related to Star Wars.

Finally, Christoph Wagner’s email touched on Teresa’s most underrated part of Star Wars: it’s opening.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

Teresa, Tricia, and Mark agreed that wiser words have not been spoken in a while, and that the Galaxy Far Far Away could use some more texture as far as showing worlds at different levels of technological and social development in the vein of Star Trek.

After congratulating Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe for making the Daily Dot’s 10 Fandom Game Changers of 2013 list, Teresa and Tricia asked Mark Newbold about being a fanboy and how he maintains a successful news blog while also writing for Star Wars Insider, holding down a job, and balancing it all out with his family life. Lots of great advice during this segment.

For the character discussion this month, Teresa picked the Millennium Falcon. That’s not a character, you say? Listen to the segment and you might just change your mind!
