Forceback Friday

Welcome to Blast Points Forceback Fridays where we spotlight some of our favorite episodes from the past.

In honor of Star Tours 32nd birthday celebrate with our episode about all things Star Tours.

This week we are talking about all about the fascinating history of STAR TOURS! It’s the Disneyland ride that was not only set new trends for the park, it started Star Wars on it’s eventual future! How the marriage of Lucasfilm and Disney possibly begin? Just how much of a Disney fan is Lucas? What planets were considered for the 2011 version? How did Star Tours influence a young Rian Johnson and directly inspire The Last Jedi? It’s an action packed episode headed to beautiful forest moon of Endor and beyond!

PLUS: What’s going to be in the gift shop and on the menus at the Lucas Museum? What’s going on with an oozing Master Codebreaker in the Last Jedi novel & so much more!

So fill in every seat, pull your safety restraint from the right to left & celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!

Forceback Friday

Welcome to the first annual Blast Points Forceback Friday where we spotlight some of our favorite episodes from the past.

In honor of John Favreau’s mysterious picture of an IG droid check out our in depth dive into the life of the one and only IG-88.

Episode IG-88

What else could there be to talk about on Episode 88 but the one and only droid of doom, IG-88!? But is it IG-88A, B, C or is it D? If you have no clue what that means, you are not alone and Jason and Gabe are here to help the best they can. Join them as they go over the IG droid’s many appearances in Star Wars movies, animation and video games, the weird and convoluted backstory of this skinny droid that once tried to take over the Death Star and a little bit of behind the scenes IG-info. It’s IG-REAT! (IG-88 talk starts at around the 19 minute point) 
PLUS! There’s talk on the Han Solo movie losing a cast member, info on a character’s name, new First Order vehicles in The Last Jedi and a possible code name for the still not official Obi-Wan movie! 
So grab your Ball playing frying pan, open some door with Palpatine and celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!!
