This week on Tosche Station Radio, Jedi NewsMark Newbold returns to recap Celebration Europe!

Kicking off the show, the hosts highlight what’s New on the Blog. Friend of the show Amanda wrote about her negative experiences at FandomFest in Louisville, Kentucky. Meanwhile, Bria gushed about KOTOR and claimed the game “doesn’t get any more Star Wars than this.”

In Fixer’s Flash, Nanci’s been reading The Darwin Elevator by Jason Hough. We welcomed Brian to Florida with Cards Against Humanity and Geek Trivia nights, With the “help” of Ikea, we also built a new podcast studio. Brian’s reading through Razor’s Edge, but hasn’t had a whole lot of time to engage in geeky endeavors due to massive amounts of unpacking.

Deak’s Dirt starts with news out of Celebration Europe: John Williams will return for the Sequel Trilogy! We also got some nice tidbits from the Star Wars Rebels panel. Finally, at the closing ceremonies, Celebration Anaheim was announced for April 2015. In the Episode VII corner, along with real news we also got some rumors. Will Episode VII be filming in August? Nope, Lucasfilm says they’re still aiming for filming to start in 2014. This weekend Disney will hold their annual D23 expo, and Lucasfilm will be a part of the live action film panel. IGN’s Eric Goldman recently spoke to ABC president Paul Lee and asked him about the possibility of Star Wars television series.

Camie’s Concerns this week covers Celebration Europe. The hosts are joined by Mark Newbold to recap the events and happenings.

Jedi News’ Mark Newbold talks yearly Star Wars films on BBC Breakfast

Last week we had Jedi News‘ Mark Newbold on the podcast. The result was perhaps the most fun episode of Tosche Station Radio we’ve ever recorded. Suffice to say, we’re fans of Mark (and you bet we’re looking for chances to get him back on the show).

After recording with us, Mark got to talk to a (hugely) bigger audience and sat down with BBC Breakfast to discuss the news that Lucasfilm will be producing a yearly Star Wars film starting in 2015 with Episode VII. Definitely give the above video a watch, Mark’s a tremendous personality and really knows his stuff.

After that, listen to him on the podcast linked above! /shamelessplug
