    On this special Thanksgiving episode, we welcome producer Howard Kazanjian to the show! He is the producer of Return of the Jedi and Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark among many others! What was it like to work with George Lucas...AND Steven Spielberg...AND Alfred Hitchcock?? It's an amazing hour+ conversation where we even talk about the most dangerous amusement park rides.    We'd like to dedicate this episode to the late J.W. Rinzler who initiated this interview. Rinzler is the author of ‘Howard Kazanjian: A Producer's Life', a phenomenal biography on the life and career of Mr. Kazanjian. There is so much in this book, you'll want to pay for it twice. Also we want to thank Brandon Alinger who picked up where J.W. left off and help set up the discussion you are about to hear.    We also share what you Skywalkers are thankful for, on this week of Thanksgiving.

    Skywalking through LOKI -- Season One! Richard and Sarah go deep into this Marvel Disney+ series - we talk characters, soundtrack and share press tidbits from Kate Herron (director) and Natalie Holt (composer). We also share some thoughtful comments from Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston. In Shout-Outs, it's all about you as we share your thoughts on LOKI.    The series picks up right after a moment we see in Avengers: Endgame. The Avengers have traveled through time to pick up various Infinity Stones, and bungled an attempt to pick up the Tesseract (Space Stone). Instead, Loki seizes the opportunity and takes it, and disappears!!! This causes a nexus event in the timeline, because back in the original Avengers film, Loki is captured and taken back to Asgard by Thor. So in Loki TV series, we see where he reappears - in Mongolia where he is captured by the TVA - The Time Variance Authority which is a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space and monitors the timeline.   They give Loki a choice: face being erased from existence due to being a "time variant", or help fix the timeline and stop a greater threat - a Loki Variant.

    Celebrate Star Wars (1977) and The Phantom Menace (1999) opening anniversaries - hear some great stories from these 2 releases. We also compare and contrast the movie marketing, critic reviews and general zeitgeist surrounding each film. The juxtaposition is fascinating!   Richard and I share our stories, but we also asked you to write in your stories on our Facebook Post. With 60+ comments, we tried to share as many as we could. Here is a sample:   We went to see Star Wars in ‘77 and we sat in the fourth row. When some kids who were younger than us sat down in front of us, we told them that those first three rows were reserved for critics. They moved and we had an unobstructed view of cinema history in the making. For Phantom Menace, I had always said the first film I would take my daughter to see was going to be a Star Wars film. She was two years old in ‘99 and she sat on my lap and, I kid you not, didn’t make a sound, and never took her eyes off the screen!! For the entire 2+hours!!! Okay, she peed on my lap but that’s a small price to pay. She was only two! Great memories!! Bill Madia   One of my friends had a friend who managed a theater that got a last minute show for TPM. That friend and I saw it dozens of times in the theater. By about the 7th time we were dating and by the time the sequel trilogy came out we were married with two Padawans.

    Hey Hey Skywalkers, in lieu of an episode of Skywalking through Neverland this week, we want to play you the audio from our most recent video, Galaxy’s Edge Over Quarantine!   We had so much content from our trip to Disneyland, that we wanted to take the time to craft and share a very special video.   Just like us, the citizens of Black Spire Outpost here in Batuu West have been in quarantine. What did they do with their time? Did Oga still require payments and kick-backs? What are their safety precautions? Did Kylo Ren have to wear a face mask?    We asked various citizens to weigh in on these hard-hitting questions, some were more than happy to share stories and up-to-date news, some ran in fear. You can see the complete video on our YouTube channel, where we’d love to see your comments! We hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it.   We’ll be back next week with another fun-filled episode of Skywalking Through Neverland!        Please Like this video and Hit that YouTube Subscribe button.   Book your next Disney trip: http://smallworldvacations.com   MORE videos coming soon.

There is no other image that brings you back to the classic days of Star Wars than the legendary poster of Luke holding his Lightsaber above his head, Princess Leia with her blaster at the ready, and the LOOMING ominous helmet of Darth Vader floating in the background.      This poster was illustrated by brothers, Tim and Greg Hildebrandt, back in 1977, but you may also recognize their artwork from the best-selling Lord of the Rings calendar, The Harry Potter magic card decks, Star Trek and Marvel Comics, the Shadows of the Empire trading card set, his recent series of Pin-Up Beauties, and several pieces for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Not only a storyteller in paintings, Mr. Hildebrandt tells amazing stories and shares his artistic inspirations with us. See all of his artwork at SpiderwebArt.com.

They also share highs, lows and personal highlights of 2020. GOODBYE 2020 and welcome 2021! Keep reading below to learn more about The High Republic. Star Wars: The High Republic The High Republic is a collection of interconnected stories for adults, teens and kids from a variety of publishers including Disney/Lucasfilm Press, Del Rey, IDW Publishing, and Marvel. The initial books and comics come from fan-favorite authors such as Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland, Daniel José Older, Cavan Scott, and Charles Soul.  These stories are set 200 years before the Skywalker Saga, when the Jedi Order and Galactic Republic are at their peak. Think of the line Ben Kenobi tells Luke in Star Wars, “For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights have been the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy…” THIS time period is what Ben was referring to as told to us by Michael Siglain, Director of Creative Franchise at Disney–Lucasfilm Press. The High Republic is established in the Core worlds, but places like the Outer Rim are considered the frontier. For more details, check out the full article on skywalkingthroughneverland.com.

We were blown away by the resonating themes and action as Valance confronts Luke, goding him on with insulting name in the galaxy, "droid lover!"

Forced to live as a cyborg due to injuries sustained from an aerial torpedo, Valance's mission is to find Luke Skywalker. Not only is Luke a droid-owner, but he also apparently treats them as equals, which Valance finds repulsive.    Meanwhile, Luke has taken C-3PO with him and is mapping out the perimeter of the Galactic Empire's most recent blockade. He deftly maneuvers his ship out of the way of an oncoming Imperial cruiser and hides out on the planet of Junction and also looks for a  trading post so that he can find parts needed to make repairs to R2-D2.    Luke and C-3PO arrive at a salvage yard where they are confronted by Valance and a battle is underway!
