  • Chronicling The Clone Wars

    Without a doubt, the most often asked question I’ve been asked since The Clone Wars started four years ago is, “How does The Clone Wars fit into the existing Expanded Universe Clone Wars timeline?” The first seasons of The Clone Wars were peculiar in that episodes didn’t air in chronological order.  You would have episodes in Seasons 2 and 3 that were actually prequels to episodes in Season 1.   Here are a few of my notes regarding the timeline to help sort things out.

  • Star Wars And Her Universe Shine The Spotlight On Fangirls!

    Last week the Star Wars community was consumed with headlines of bullying and hurt feelings. The good news is that our community rallied together and condemned the thoughtless act of mockery and turned it into a teachable moment. However, amidst all of the negative headlines, something extremely exciting happened and I’d like to shine the spotlight on something positive in our community. (Of course I’m biased, but bear with me.) At Celebration VI, we had a Her Universe photo shoot for female Star Wars fans. Girls have been asking me for the past two years if they could be a […]

  • SWCVI in Review

    Hello Star Wars Friends, I’m sorry it has been so long since my last blog. When I am away from the office as long as I was for Star Wars Celebration VI, there is always a lot to catch up on when I get back.

    There are a bunch of people who assume that I’ve built my collection over the years through the generosity of Lucasfilm or licensees. “You mean they don’t automatically send you one of everything?” Nope. I go out hunting at retail or online and pay full price for nearly everything. Oh, now and then over the years a licensee that I’ve built a strong relationship with or helped with some project will be very kind and send me product or give me a healthy discount. I appreciate that a lot, because being a collector who likes nearly everything produced worldwide doesn’t […]

  • SWCVI: Star Wars Sound Panel

    Ben Burtt, Matthew Wood and I hosted a panel at Celebration CVI over the weekend on Star Wars sound. A part of our presentation involved the breakdown of a scene from The Clone Wars (“Massacre”, season 4). I stripped out the sound effects and dialog from the scene leaving it rather bare bones. We invited volunteers from the audience to come up to the stage and perform the sound effects and dialog for us in order to rebuild the scene. One person performed lasers sounds (pew! pew!), another young man performed lightsaber swishes (WOOOW!), and two others performed explosions (kaBOOM!). […]
