This week we are thrilled to welcome back to Blast Points, Skywalker Sound’s David W. Collins! Since we last talked a couple of years ago, David was nominated for an Emmy for his sound work on The Book of Boba Fett, led the way with Tales of the Jedi and The Bad Batch season 2 and was the sound designer for that little thing called The Mandalorian season 3. Join us as we go over all of that and more as we explore what went into creating sounds for so much of the recent stuff we’ve loved. What’s the secret sound in Gorian Shard’s voice, what was the inspiration for Gideon’s mech suit and where can you hear the sound of Jon Favreau’s dog?
Our coverage of TALES OF THE JEDI continues as this week we look at the series as a whole and the three AHSOKA stories! These are stories about life and death, surviving, teachers and students and we’re touching the nose of the space tiger so that we can survive and talk about them all! How do the stories relate to the Dooku Downfall Trilogy? How could the lessons in these shorts inform future stories? Why are we so blessed to have this show?
It’s a Tales of the Jedi jamboree so celebrate the love and listen today!
Tales of the Jedi is here and first we are talking all about the three incredible COUNT DOOKU stories! We love The Count quite a bit and these bite size bits of Dooku have us going off the deep end with heavy Star Wars thoughts. Good Dooku, master and apprentices, Yaddle, Mundi’s giant hood and so much more!
PLUS – the shocking final SNOKETOBERFEST of the year!
So, erase Kamino from the archives, celebrate the love and listen today!
The D23 Expo descended upon California last weekend and the big Lucasfilm panel did not disappoint! Join us as we look at the big hitters of the panel and come to the conclusion that we are DOOMED! We’re talking INDY 5, Andor, Willow, Bad Batch, Tales of the Jedi, Mando, Ahsoka and MORE! What gave us goose bumps and what made us want ice cream? It’s a warning that we are about to cross over into a STAR WARS MADNESS zone and we’re kinda pumped about it! So, splash some bleach water on your face, celebrate the love and listen today!
When the High Republic publishing initiative was announced, we couldn’t help but be reminded of the classic Dark Horse Star Wars comic series TALES OF THE JEDI! Also taking place many years before the films and telling the stories of ancient Jedi, the comics went to some wild places that we’re still trying to figure out! How were they created? What input did Lucas have and how did they inspire the prequels? What happened as Gabe read many of them for the first time? Do they make any sense?
So call up your buddy Ulic Qel Droma & celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!
