Episode 28 - Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Books; Celebration Update; Listener Questions!

February 7, 2019

Recorded on Sunday, February 3, 2019

 Is it a mini-sode that ran long?  Is it a regular episode that ran short?  Well, it's both.  Ryan and Braden (and, for brief spurts of time, Dillon) start the show with a recap of the big week of Star Wars publishing news, focusing on the Galaxy's Edge tie-in books announced by Del Ray last week.  They then move on to updating the list of confirmed Celebration guests, and then wrap up the show by answering some listener questions!  

(And just to clarify, yes, Reese was injured during the recording of this podcast, but she is perfectly fine now!)
