Rebel Force Radio: Star Wars
Rebel Force Radio: May 27, 2016

“The Real Fans of the Saga” is a brand-new STAR WARS fan reality TV show coming this summer from Cris Macht. Cris and his wife Michelle join us in studio to talk about everything that has gone into creating the show. STAR WARS celebrates another anniversary.  We review interview audio from Lawrence Kasdan talking about the upcoming young Han Solo standalone film and Ewan McGregor considering his unfinished STAR WARS business. We have another Save The Lucas Museum update from ground zero in Chicago, an EMPIRE STRIKES BACK blast-from-the-past, and details about RFR road trips happening this summer with stops in Joliet and Orlando.

Star Wars Oxygen: Vol. 30

The maestro is featured on the STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Blu-ray on the bonus feature "John Williams: The Seventh Symphony". We review this cool featurette and speculate on Williams's future with the saga. Finally, the music from Maz Kanata's "watering hole" has been released! In a surprise move, "Jabba Flow" is now available at the official STAR WARS website and elsewhere. We listen to the release announcement from composer Lin Manuel Miranda with J.J. Abrams and review the track itself. Plus, we find Kylo Ren's theme in "The Hateful Eight" of all places, and more.

RFR Live from Rancho Obi-Wan: Part 1

The mecca for every STAR WARS fan is Rancho Obi-Wan, home to the largest STAR WARS collection in the world. But to keep this great museum alive, we must raise awareness and funds. Join us and make a difference as RFR becomes “Rancho Force Radio” with an incredible live podcast fundraiser recorded live at Rancho Obi-Wan. Steve Sansweet is here with us along with the incredible crew of supporters that keep ROW alive. One episode of RFR could not contain this marathon podcast so we broke it up into two. Let’s kick off part one with James Burns (Jedi News), Bonnie Burton (Star Wars Craft Book) and our very special guest, actor Sam Witwer!

Come back soon for Part Two of RFR Live from Rancho Obi-Wan with more special guests and surprises. 

MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Visit www.ranchoobiwan.org and make a donation to keep the museum alive and thriving!
