RoundTable PodRacers

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I’m so excited to be sharing this post with you all. Very exciting news and new adventures.

I’ve been a fan of podcasts for a while now. Whenever I hit traffic on the road, listening to my favorite podcasts makes it much better. It’s fun to listen to other fans talk about my favorite fandoms, specially Star Wars.

When my little Sith friend Julie came back from San Diego Comic Con, she came eager to start her blog (Infinity Jules). We discussed starting a podcast and three days later we recorded our first episode.

In our first episode we discuss how we met and how we formed a close bond, so close we decided to co-host an awesome podcast for all of you. We talk about everything including SaberCraft, SDCC, Supercon, D23, and much, much more.  We unbox the newest Droid themed Smuggler’s Bounty and give all the nifty little details of the goodies inside. We also rant about Star Wars and probably deviate from our topics a little too much, but fear not fellow nerds, its all pretty much about Star Wars.

You can find our podcast on Youtube, Soundcloud and even iTunes . Check it out! Follow us on Twitter @RTpodracers and leave us any comments or questions.

Enjoy it! May The Force Be With You!

Star Wars ON Stress OFF

I’m back!! It’s been a couple of crazy weeks for me with school, work and personal life. I thought about posting but decided to take some time off to organize myself. I felt it was better that way, and not have to rush to post just to post.

Since the last couple of weeks I was organizing and relaxing before the craziness of work started I decided to take some time to destress! And what better way to do it but with Star Wars.

I’ve found that there are different ways I can relax while enjoying my favorite fandom. Here are some of my favorites:

Star Wars The Clone Wars

Forces of Destiny

Forces of Destiny has finally arrived! The first episode aired Monday July 3rd on Disney’s Youtube channel. It starts with Rey’s journey after she meets BB-8 on Jakku. The episodes are 3 minute shorts but they are full of emotions, heroism and character.

President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy said it best:

“Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is for anyone who has been inspired by Leia’s heroism, Rey’s courage, or Ahsoka’s tenacity….

We’re thrilled that so many of the original actors are reprising their roles in these shorts, which capture the small moments and everyday decisions that shape who these characters are.

It is a fun new way for people to experience Star Wars.”

Why Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny is so important to Lucasfilm

Dave Filoni does it again! He is truly a mastermind when it comes to Star Wars, specially its animation. He captures so much emotion and character in these 2D short episodes. This new series proves to show that Star Wars is for everyone.

I’m really excited to see where this show goes. As a woman, I am really happy to see a Star Wars show that is focused on the amazing journey of strong female characters we love in this far away galaxy.

Comic Con Season!

With Comic Con season approaching I thought it would be great to do a quick post with tips for your next convention adventure! Enjoy…

Do's & Dont's
  • Schedule – It is important to ensure that you have the schedule of events, photo ops, panels in order to organize your day and not miss anything. Check on the convention’s website for panels and photo op schedule and set up alarms so you can make lines on time and not miss out on anything.
    • For example, Las Vegas Comic Con is next month and Stan Lee will be there. Seems to be one his last time appearances so definitely something to check out!8225d3_34d97bfe1e7246ae93e249fb40ebaba3~mv2

May the 4th Be With You!

 

May 4th has become a universal Holiday and let’s be honest it’s one of our favorites!! A whole day where we get to watch marathons, buy exclusive toys, almost everyone wears Star Wars shirts and we have special events, AMAZING! Unfortunately, this May 4th I got sick and wasn’t able to go celebrate 😦 .. At least I was able to celebrate at work wearing Star Wars gear and talking Star Wars with the kids!

SWCO Day 3 & 4

So to continue and finish my post about Star Wars Celebration Orlando here are my highlights for Saturday and Sunday.

Things were more organized Saturday and Sunday and less crazy (or maybe I just got used to it ..) We got up at 4:00am to make it in line for Rebels and I was so excited to make it to the live panel!

Saturday

67217f373f04c8741b1c1aad83cdf67f STAR WARS REBELS PANEL-  I was super excited that I made it to the live panel! I got to see my favorite, DAVE FILONI!!! He is such an amazing guy!! Plus he was wearing a shirt that said “Ahsoka Lives?” The panel was hosted by one of my favorite geeks Amy Ratcliffe. She was joined by the Rebels cast which included Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Freddie Prinze Jr. (Kanan), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Taylor Gray (Ezra) and Steve Blum (Zeb). The panel was fun and at the same time emotional, specially hearing Dave Filoni mention it was the last season of Rebels 😦 (All the Feels!!!!!). IMG_9755_glowingsaber

SWCO Day 1 & 2

 

Now that Star Wars Celebration is over and I got the chance to breathe and sleep (those of you that went understand) I can look back and give you my Celebration Recap! I thought about doing a post for each day but I got there Thursday really early and really didn’t get back to my hotel till Friday night so that will go to show you that it was really a long two days combined instead of one.

I got to Orlando Thursday at 9:30am and went straight to the convention.. It was crazy to see that there was a huge line even though this was apparently the biggest convention center in the U.S. It was really really hot!!! The wait was about two hours!! It seemed a bit disorganized. It really wasn’t the best part …but then.. I went in!!!!

I had a moment!! I had never seen so much Star Wars in my life! I mean I read about it, I watch movies, cartoons, read comics and go to conventions, but nothing prepared me for that moment!! I had a Star Wars overload and it was SURREAL!!

Season 3 of Rebels!

So this is the post that has delayed me from publishing my blog! I love the Star Wars Rebels and  the Clone Wars series. I’ve watched Clone Wars around 5 times from beginning to end. I don’t want to say I am reviewing the episodes because I believe they are all great but wanna give my reactions and thoughts. I’ve had friends ask me for opinions or ask me what episodes to watch so I started writing about it. I will soon post more reviews but since Star Wars Celebration just finished and there is so much to discuss about Rebels I want to get started!!

I am starting with a quick look at some of my favorite parts from Season 3 of Star Wars Rebels!
