Podcast Stardust #263: Filoni’s Promotion and Celebration Thoughts

by Podcast Stardust

Dave Filoni received a new-old promotion. What does it mean? Also, we have further thoughts about Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022.

Fans were delighted to hear that Dave Filoni received a promotion at Lucasfilm. However, there are a few twists to this story. We explore what Filoni’s promotion might mean for Star Wars. Also, with each week, we get closer to the next wave of phase one of Star Wars: The High Republic. We examine a new excerpt from The Rising Storm on this episode and an alternate cover. Finally, we have some additional thoughts on how Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022 might look under the current COVID guidelines.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Fennec Shand gets a new character poster for The Bad Batch,
  • Star Wars: The High Republic: The Rising Storm has another excerpt,
  • Alternate covers for The Rising Storm are starting to emerge,
  • The hotel block for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim is coming very soon,
  • Additional thoughts on the format of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, and
  • The announcement of a live, in-person Rancho Obi-Wan Gala.
