Enjoy Stuff: A TechnoRetro Podcast (Star Wars Celebration)

JediShua and shazbazzar head to Orlando for  Star Wars Celebration for a few days of excitement as the Star Wars generation celebrates forty years of that galaxy far, far away in this bonus length episode of TechnoRetro Dads.  


In the NEWS…

Classic Retro Rat movies Willard and Ben will be released on DVD by Scream Factory.


Aftershocks of 1977

T-Bird tweets about the Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Volume 2 with some great tunes from 1977 — including this segment’s theme song by Electric Light Orchestra.  Featuring “Mr. Blue Sky”, “Chains”, and “Southern Nights”, this recently released soundtrack is evidence of the aftershocks of 1977.


But that’s not all.  


Since 2017 marks the fortieth anniversary of the initial release of Star Wars, shazbazzar and JediShua remark about the remarkable fortieth anniversary panel on Thursday morning of Star Wars Celebration Orlando.

After Star Wars Celebration, shazbazzar and JediShua add their swag and experiences from Orlando to the TechnoRetro Dads Star Wars Scrapbook with memories of EarBuds, SuperFriends, panels from The Last Jedi and Rebels, Ewoks, a certain pirate, and more.

Greetings, Programs and all you Star Wars fans!

In this special edition of TechnoRetro Dads, we sift through our Star Wars Celebration Europe II reports from Satka in Essen, Germany to bring you just a bit of the experience that is a Star Wars Celebration.  With highlights from Kathleen Kennedy and Dave Filoni, we talk about what we can expect in the bonus content from Star Wars: The Clone Wars as well as the highly anticipated Star Wars: Rebels and then get just a bit ofinsight into what Episode VII will look like in 2015.  Although it is impossible to consolidate a Celebration into an hour-long podcast, maybe you can feel like you were part of the event for just a little while.

May the force be with you!
