Listen as Jason & Gabe take a look back at 1999’s The Art of Star Wars, Episode I The Phantom Menace! It was the dawn of a new era of Star Wars concept art and it’s just as fascinating today as it was then! Doug Chiang endlessly drawing Battle Droids in the attic of Skywalker Ranch resulted in a legacy in Star Wars design that can still be felt today. They talk about their favorite illustrations from the book, Jabba on thrones, the idea of an older Anakin, Jar-Jar’s pet dog and MORE!
PLUS: there’s some Solo speculation and a whole lot of Old Man Snoke love! So sip some morning coffee with Sebulba, smoke a cigar with a booger and celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!
This week, Jason and Gabe are going off the deep end listening to 44 CommTech chips!! What are CommTech chips? They were the talking Episode 1 bases that had an amazing high tech name and made everyone sound like they were talking through Kylo Ren’s mask! Well we haven’t stopped thinking about them and now it’s an episode over a year in the making as Jason and Gabe go through every chip they have and try and guess just who the heck’s voice we are supposed to be listening too! Is it Bibble or is it a Battle Droid? Qui Gon or a Naboo soldier?! We have no clue so join us as we try to figure it all out!
Before that there’s some talk on Pablo’s statements at a con in Chile, leaked Lego photos involving old things in gold robes riding elevators, and the big ILM 40th reunion party which had one very welcome & surprising guest!
So call all up all your Wizards & fire up your CommTech reader and celebrate the love and listen to BLAST POINTS!!
