It’s our May the 4th Super Spectacular as we are so excited to talk about a video of an incredible live call-in show from Sacramento that happened in January 1997 all about the beloved Star Wars Special Edition! TV news hosts Walt and Mark take some mind warping, insane calls ranging from Star Wars fans dropping trivia and asking about toys and we’re going over every glorious second of it! Along the way there’s special appearances from Blast Points friends like The George Lucas, Rick McCallum and yes, even wild man Ben Burtt. Join us as we relive the magical Special Edition fever and learn just why Star Wars will always be THE BOMB.
So go meet up with David Prowse on Valentine’s Day, start your rent a tape video library and celebrate the love with Blast Points!
After getting up at 5am to watch it, join Jason and Gabe as they finally get to talk about the first insane episode of THE MANDALORIAN! Are they still alive? What does it all mean and where could it be going next? And what does it have to do with Crocodile Dundee and Renesmee from Twilight? Listen today & celebrate the love, don’t you agree?!
PLUS: A new Star Wars Special Edition, Maclunkey & Granny Squadron hits Disney +!
Take a trip back to 1997 as Jason and Gabe remember all the hype, insanity and good times that was the Star Wars Special Edition. How many times did Jason see it in two days? Did Gabe discover anything new while watching the old VHS tape again? Just how much Taco Bell did they eat to get all those awesome little Star Wars kids meal toys?
Before that there’s Gabe’s thoughts on the Disney Star Wars Land & his one on one with E.T. after his recent trip to Orlando AND they both discuss the many, many possibilities of the Episode 8 title, THE LAST JEDI!
