Vlogging is the new blogging and everybody will soon be getting into the space. This week Lucasfilm dropped their new weekly video podcast “The Star Wars Show.” It will recap the latest happenings in the Star Wars galaxy directly from the source, showcasing the energy, excitement, and passion of the fan community, as well as sitting down with prominent superfans. Hosts Andi Gutierrez and Peter Townley plan to unveil the latest headlines from a galaxy far, far away as well as chat with special guest stars to explore all things Star Wars.
“There’s an abundance of Star Wars news and information right now and for the foreseeable future,” Mickey Capoferri, senior director of content and programming at Lucasfilm said. “The Star Wars Show will be the place for new and old fans to engage with every aspect of the franchise in fun and authentic ways.”
The first episode is out and it features, Warcraft director Duncan Jones who talks about the film and his experiences with Star Wars, a look back at the highlights of Star Wars Day, a big Celebration Europe announcement, plus a visit to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.
It’s nice to have an official voice in the space. They certainly get access us regular fans can never get. But I don’t think this will replace the fan vlogs, podcasts, or blogs.
