More Iger Book Bombshells

We continue our deep dive into the “Star Wars” chapter of Bob Iger’s book, featuring behind-the-scenes revelations about the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm and George Lucas’s desire to remain involved in the creation of the Sequel Trilogy.

Star Wars In Pop Culture returns with a trip to STAR TOURS for THE GOLDBERGS, and Jon Favreau’s THE CHEF SHOW pays a visit to Dave Filoni at Skywalker Ranch.

We look between the lines to decipher what this cancellation might mean for THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. We look back at the classic KENOBI novel by John Jackson Miller and discuss Gaffi Sticks, Krayt Dragons and Kenobi Keychains. And we’re probably the only fans on the internet to acknowledge a mundane anniversary for the Droids/Ewoks Hour from the eighties.
