    Star Wars en Direct #80 - March 19th, 2006
    Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, 26 years of Empire


    On this week's edition of Star Wars en Direct, we will be celebrating 26 years of empire by talking about The Empire Strikes Back that came out back in 1980.

    That's right, not exactly 26 years ago, a movie was about to come out in theaters and not only leave a mark on the box office and the way to make sequels, but that would leave a gap in the history of the star wars movies to be filled over the years to come.

    We want to know where you were back in 1980 when the movie came out.
    What do you remember about the years that followed?

    We also want you to outwit the three of us by asking us daring questions about the movie itself.

    And we will do our best to answer the questions that you come up with about the movie.

    Send us your comments on this week topics (or your phone number for us to call) to studio@swendirect.com or in this thread on our SWD message board where we encourage you to register: http://www.swendirect.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=293

    Star Wars en Direct #82- April 23rd, 2006
    Dark Lord - The Rise of Darth Vader

    On this show we will discuss the novel Dark Lord, the sequel to Revenge of the Sith.

    The story picks up after the events of Revenge of the Sith. Darth Vader is still getting used to his new armor and his place in the Empire. Most importantly, he is frustrated with the Emporor for using him and for withholding the promised secrets of the dark side.

    A small band of Jedi survivors are trying to make contact with other surviving Jedi. All the while the new Dark Lord of the Sith is in hot pursuit.

    The Phantom Menace Retrospective


    It has been 7 years since Star Wars Episode I. Now that the Prequel trilogy is finished, has your opinion of the Phantom Menace changed?

    Does Anakin still seem too young? Is Podrace sequence still cool, but pointless? Is Jar Jar as offensive as he was in 1999? Are you still mad Darth Maul got killed so easily?

    It was supposed to return today, but they've said that Sebastien has food poisoning, so no live show this weekend as planned.

    The last show was about Fan Audio and FOX "cancelling the Star Wars TV show" a few episodes after it came out.

    As I've just finished production on the TV show I was working on, I'll most likely get things back together and I should have the archives up mid next week.

    thanks for listening in.

    Hello Goddess ;)

    SWD announcement for tonights show:



    Star Wars en Direct #96- November 26th, 2006
    Conventions, general or targeted?
    This week we will be talking about conventions, which are the best, the conventions where we talk about everything and bump into Rodians, klingons and pikachus? or the conventions where we only cross paths with Jedis, Dark lords and troopers?.
    With the upcoming Star Wars Celebration IV, one must wonder why over 30000 fans will be moving to L.A. for about a week.And yet about just as many fans from different fandoms attend the popular Comic-Con, Fan Expo and Gen Cons.
    Conventions began many years ago and have now evolved into a yearly business for some, but a reason to gather for others.
