348: Howard Kazanjian - A Conversation with Return of the Jedi Producer
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. Some thoughtful and lovely comments from all of you. We are thankful for you!  Please check out our NEW YouTube Daily Series: TODAY IN STAR WARS HISTORY. Your daily Star Wars history lesson!

We talk King Kong, Hoojibs and so much more!!   About Hoojibs   We started STN back in 2013 to share our passion for Star Wars and Disney, to create a family-friendly community, and, to make Hoojibs canon! As of 8/16/21 we completed all of our goals as the news broke that Star Wars Adventures Annual 2021 was to feature - HOOJIBS!!!   We want to thank Brian Sims of alerting us to this news first - he told us to go look at Twitter where Matt Martin of the Star Wars story group had posted this tweet:   https://twitter.com/missingwords/status/1427388511309598730   WOW! You can check out more about this news and HOOJIBS in this new article, and a history of the hoojibs in our Episode 208. But that’s not all! It seems like Lucasfilm is fulfilling all of our wishes.

336: JUNGLE CRUISE and Tom Ameen
Composer, pianist and good friend Tom Ameen joins us to share his latest Disney-inspired relaxation album, Magical Meditations. It features tracks like I See The Light, it’s a small world, Circle of Life - all reimagined at slower tempos perfect for naptime.    Then Richard and Sarah share a spoiler-free review of JUNGLE CRUISE. Did it live up to the hype? Was it worth the wait? Would we watch this, The African Queen or The Country Bears? And most importantly, we want to know what you thought of the film, regardless of our comments. Please share with us on social media (links below) or in our Facebook Group.   This episode also features a few quotes from Gwendoline Yeo (voice of Nala Se on THE BAD BATCH). On July 26 we attended a Virtual Roundtable. My full write-up will be here on Friday. We shared some fun bits here:   How to pronounce Kaminoan according to Dave Filoni.How she changes her voice acting based on the aliens she portrays, like Nala Se as a Kaminoan and Gungans.   Sign up for the Skywalking Network Newsletter   Never miss a podcast, Zoom discussion link or Pop Culture Trivia!   Disney+ Zoom Chats for THE BAD BATCH every Friday or Saturday evening - anyone can join, just sign up for the Skywalking Newsletter for the link!

335: LOKI - For All Time. Always.
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.

We will be talking about both with our special guest, Chris Alexander (Star Wars Origami author). Richard, Sarah and Chris discuss this comic and find FTOOM! Fast Facts (classic comic people or places that appear now in Star Wars books, comics and films). Plus, what is up with our heroes mingling with the likes of fantasy characters - are those werewolves?? We all remark on the artwork - it is SO MUCH better than previous issues.
