    Streaming Star Wars: Episode 11, Star Wars Directors & Avoiding Twitter Rumors

    Streaming Star Wars: Episode 11, Star Wars Directors & Avoiding Twitter Rumors

    Episode #11 of Streaming Star Wars w/ Ammo + Fletzer

    Our host, Pete Fletzer is co-host of a second Star Wars show with David Amelotti from Beyond the Blast Doors. We have launched a live show usually every Friday night at 10pm eastern time called Streaming Star Wars where we will be recapping, analyzing and discussing each episode of Disney Plus Star Wars content with each other, with guests and with the live audience in the chat room.

    Each week, after the live video show that can be found on the Beyond the Blast Doors video channel, we will post the audio from the episode here, on Around the Galaxy. Our regular, weekly interview show will still drop on Wednesdays, but think of this as a second show in your ATG stream.

    This week we talked about the Obi-Wan Kenobi, rumors and crummy sites that push them, live action TV to film directors and the tone of the live action series we are getting in the future.

    The audio is pulled straight from the live show … no editing, just David Amelotti, myself, and our audience.

    Episode 49 - Heather Antos talks Dr. Aphra and Star Wars comics

    Heather Antos is a freelance editor, story and Kickstarter consultant who has worked on properties like Star Wars, Deadpool, Disney, Marvel, and more!

    On this episode we talk about being part of the team that brought Dr. Aphra to life, being a droid translator, working on The Force Awakens, the Star Wars Story Group and more!

    3:45 - what do you do?
    6:30 - The Droid Translator
    “I built a dictionary for BB-8’s language”
    Humanity of Droids
    13:00 - Hiring the artists
    14:00 - The Process
    17:30 - working on The Force Awakens
    22:00 - Poe in comics vs TROS
    “Maybe he took a year off and ran spice when he was sixteen.”
    “Everything is Canon until it isn’t.”
    “Theres something to be said perspectives in canon. It’s not a retelling of the story, it’s a different perspective.”
    25:45 - Story Group
    28:30 - Dr. Aphra
    “She was hands down pitched as Indiana Jones in Star Wars.”
    “I would love to see her played by Olivia Munn”
    40:15 - Where are you now? and big comics vs small
    43:45 - 10 questions
    49:30 - X Deserved Better
    “There’s a tribalism in fandom that is disheartening to me because at the end of the day, we all love Star Wars because we love Star Wars and that’s what is so beautiful about it. If we could just unite over that message of hope and unity, I think it would be a very healing thing for this fandom.”

Charles Westcott ,

Great show

We only just discovered this show recently and have enjoyed each episode greatly. It’s variety of guests and topics make it a top pick in the playlist. Keep up the great work!!

Since becoming regular listeners, we’ve grown to appreciate the lengths to which Pete goes to be inclusive. Not always easy but worthy.

Between Two Umbarian Ferns

The host of Around The Galaxy Pete has the uncanny talent of treating his guests and guest hosts as though they are big city Hollywood celebrities, which is a rarer talent than a listener might realize. This is a special touch of class for podcasting and Star Wars podcasting in general and if you are searching for podcasts to listen too, start your search here and then check out some of the other podcasts interviewed on Around The Galaxy. - @toastedzen
