On this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue, Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr report back on their convention trips, including interviews with Steve Blum (Zeb) and Greg Ellis (Baron Ruhdor) from Star Wars Rebels. Plus we unveil a new logo courtesy of RebelForce Radio’s Jimmy Mac and artist Chris Amorim.
Listener emails always make us smile, and we’ve received even more mail this month from fanboys who love the show. Star Wars truly is for everyone! One email led to a discussion of ways to give back beyond the costuming fan organizations. Our suggestions include Force For the Cure and Cat Taber’s Games for Soldiers, which we highlighted in our first episode.
The opening of ILM’s studio in London gave us a chance to talk about a couple of important women leading Lucasfilm into the future: Kathleen Kennedy and Lynwen Brennan. Kathleen Kennedy mentioned during the opening that Episode VII filming was nearing its conclusion, which is exciting, and also gave us a chance to talk about spoiler etiquette in the age of social media.
In addition to Teresa’s awesome interviews from Fanboy Expo with the voices of Zeb and Baron Ruhdor, Steve Blum and Greg Ellis, we did a written interview with Star Wars Rebels artist extraordinaire Amy Beth Christenson. She is a lifelong fangirl who was inspired to draw Star Wars by her aunt. We hope you’ll check out her full interview either at FANgirl or Jedi News. Amy Beth Christenson won the Judge’s Choice for the Her Universe San Diego Comic-Con Fashion Show, which was just released on Nerdist.com.
The closing character discussion was admittedly a bit of a lovefest, since it featured a favorite character for both hosts: Ahsoka Tano.
