Announcing Our Sticker Sheet!

Hello! We wanted to take a moment and write a little bit about our sticker sheets that just launched on our website! While we’ve had different merchandise through the past few years (see: our incredible “Look to the Animation Department for the Future of Star Wars” design from our friend, James W), our sticker sheet also felt very on brand for us! We wanted a way to incorporate a lot of our favorite things and sayings into one place and a sticker sheet seemed like the best fit. 

Caitlin has been an avid bullet journaler the past few years and recently has started to grow a little sticker collection of her own. The idea for a Skytalkers-themed sticker sheet grew from there. A couple of months ago, we hired one of our long time friends, Katie Gettys (we all went to middle and high school together), who has a sticker shop on Etsy called Exploremoredesigns, co and she worked with us to design a sticker sheet that highlighted some of our favorite sayings and things from Star Wars (You can see in some photos the stickers put to good use in Caitlin’s bullet journal already!).

Of course, there is Dave’s hat, the Revenge of the Sith novelization, George’s plaid shirt, and the Reylo of it all: the hands are a language and the amazing kiss.  If you’ve listened to our show, you know these sayings and items are a part of nearly every conversation we have. Our sticker sheet felt like a fun way to celebrate some of the things we love to talk about most on Skytalkers and with our listeners as well! 

We created a limited run of these sticker sheets to start off with, with the hope of making more in the future if there is enough interest. We hope you enjoy! Please share with us and tag @skytalkerspod on Twitter and @skytalkerspodcast on Instagram where you put the stickers (aka, please share your bullet journal pages, calendars, laptops,  and more!).

Weekly Transmission 6/9/17

Hope you’ve all had a fantastic week! New podcast drops tomorrow here. Here’s a roundup of our favorite things on the internet this week.

  1. This thread on Twitter by user Glendon Mellow about the merits of the Star Wars prequels. Our listeners know we love the prequels, and this is an amazing visual look at what makes the prequels great.
  2. If you’re a lover of all things Disney Parks, be sure to check out Amy Ratcliffe and Aaron Fairbanks’ new podcast The Disney Diet. Their newest episode discusses the future of franchise lands, which has some serious relevance to the upcoming Star Wars Land addition.
  3. Bobby Roberts cut the original John Williams track for when Rey grabs the lightsaber into The Force Awakens. Here’s what he had to say about that:
    When Rey grabs the lightsaber in the climax of The Force Awakens, John Williams’ *original* score for the moment (it can be heard on the official soundtrack in the track “The Ways of the Force”) was replaced in the final edit with tracked-in music from Star Wars (“Burning Homestead” on the Special Edition soundtrack, “The Return Home” on the original soundtrack LP). The music as scored doesn’t fit exactly with the final edit (hence the tiny silence before Rey’s saber ignites) possibly suggesting that the tracked music was chosen as much for its length as it was its emotional power, or that the scene was lengthened to accomodate the emotion of the tracked music. This is what it would have sounded like in the film had Williams’ score been (more or less) left alone.” Watch the video below to see it cut together. What do you think?
  4. New Battlefront II image shows Theed and it’s cool:3244118-screen+shot+2017-06-07+at+1.51.06+pm.png
  5. Dave Filoni had a birthday and squashed our dreams of Ahsoka being the giant wolf in Rebels:

Photo Report: Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular in Walt Disney World

Friend of Skytalkers Brittany Barnim returns to skytalkers.com to generously let us share her beautiful photos from Disney’s Hollywood Studios! She is a super talented photographer and we love seeing her photos. Below is her report from Walt Disney World.

Fireworks are one of those little things in life that make you truly believe in magic and when visiting any one of the Disney Parks. They tend to represent a goodbye of sorts: sometimes to a long-awaited vacation or simply the closing chapter of a long day. In any case, I firmly believe there is no better way to end a sweltering day plagued by humidity and long lines than with the most gorgeous fireworks display I’ve ever witnessed, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. Of course, I am a tiny bit biased in this assertion…
