Anne’s off this week recovering Death Star plans, and so Conley Smith and Jimmy Presler sit in with Bill this week to talk about Disneyland and Star Wars – specifically, our experiences with the Disney parks, how Star Wars Land may work (and what may need to be destroyed to make it a reality) and our impending plans to visit the Anaheim park.

In The Geek Week News In Review: Spielberg’s rumored attempt to lure Gene Wilder out of retirement, the Resident Evil 2 remake (and our wish for more atmospheric thriller games rather than gory/jump-scare horror games), the Hateful 8 trailer, Target’s removal of gender-specific signage for its toy aisles (and the guy who trolled people freaking out about that decision), Sesame Street’s weird new ‘partnership‘ with HBO, and even more Star Wars/Disney talk as we dish on all the D23 Episode IX/Rogue One/Han Solo news.

And here’s the link to Jimmy & Conley’s Star Wars-a-thon Google calendar in case anyone wants to watch along on our chronological rewatch of everything that’s still canon in the Star Wars universe in the lead-up to the release of Episode VII.

  • Intro: Tales of the Jedi – John Williams
