The Star Wars Holiday Special – It Was a Thing! [Geeky a Go Go Podcast]

Welcome to the Geeky a Go Go! This week AP, Chris, Eric, and Tim chat about our favorite, dirty little secret. No not that. It’s the infamous 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special. A long time ago (1978) in a galaxy far, far away (a studio somewhere in California probably) audiences who were suffering from Star Wars fever were greeted with a made-for-TV-holiday-special that went on to become one of the most reviled pieces of Star...

Kelly Marie Tran opens up about cyber bullying

This past June Star Wars newcomer Kelly Marie Tran made the tough decision to remove herself from social media after she was subjected to abuse and harassment for her role as Rose Tico in Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.

Boba Fett hangs up his helmet

It was announced Tuesday that Jeremy Bulloch, the man who first played our favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett, will be retiring from the convention circuit.

Book Review: Rebel Rising

Let me begin with: if you haven’t seen Rogue One, there’s going to be spoilers below. So stop reading, watch the movie, then come back. Okay are you done? Okay let’s go. I’m a huge fan of Rogue One. In fact, it’s possibly my favorite Star Wars movie. It’s the prequel to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, it has a fun Oceans 11 vibe, Vader kicks some sweet rebel ass at the end,...

Star Wars: Episode IX Cast Announced

Starwars.com announced the cast of 2019’s highly anticipated end to the Skywalker saga this evening and there weren’t many surprises… well, except for one. CARRIE FISHER WILL BE IN IT. Yes.

Mark Hamill punked us all with his twitter post!

Earlier we posted about the fun costume Mark Hamill said he donned at SDCC to poke fun President Trump. Thanks to some cleaver sleuths on the Facebook group ‘SDCC Attendees’, we have learned in fact that it was NOT Mark Hamill in the Orange Vader costume. A few members were quick to point out that they actually sat next to this fine person when they removed the helmet and it was NOT, Mark Hamill.

Mark Hamill is pretty notorious for this and he used his Day 4 costume at SDCC this year to poke fun at President Trump. Twitter user Brendan Bajillioz (@WillHunting562) got the surprise of a lifetime when he posted some pics of an Orange...
