Holonet Blast #22

It’s been a somewhat quiet week unless you count the Rex kerfuffle that happened this weekend. (Which, by the way, wasn’t actually confirmed despite some half-cocked blog posts stating otherwise.) I’m not going to link to any of this and honestly, you probably already know how most of us at Tosche Station feel about this situation anyways.

In other news! Episode IX got a new writer. Jack Thorne will be working on the script. Whether or not this is a good thing depends on who you talk to but his work for the BBC is well-regarded.

In ‘omg this is so cool!’ news, StarWars.com announced a new virtual reality experience titled ‘Secrets of the Empire’ will be debuting this holiday season. From the announcement:

Created by ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment division, in collaboration with THE VOID, it will open to the public at two new VOID Experience Centers at Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort beginning this holiday season. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will allow fans to move freely in an untethered, social, and multi-sensory experience, including interaction with friends, fans, and Star Wars characters.

We’ll all be living vicariously through Brian and Nanci as they inevitably get to experience this and the rest of us do not.

And that’s all for this week! If anyone wants to flail over Inferno Squad… you know where to find me.
