Star Wars Kidscast is back with a fun, new episode. With the recent release of the the theme music to the upcoming Star Wars Rebels series we thought it would be interesting to look back and listen to EVERY intro to every Star Wars TV show (so far). Which show had two different theme songs? Which show didn’t have a theme song at all? Find out here!

Also, we look at new releases on the bookshelf including Star Wars Workbooks, Star Wars Rebels tie-ins and Tom Angleberger’s latest (and final) Origami Yoda book: Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus.

All that and more on this episode of the Star Wars Kidscast!

Star Wars Kidscast is back with a BIG episode! So big in fact that there’s TWICE as many guests as we’ve ever had! OK, that just means two guests, but that’s still pretty exciting.

First we chat briefly with Terry Chui from the 501st Legion about Star Wars costuming, “bad guys” doing good for charities and the specific kid-oriented fun planned for Fan Expo Vancouver 2014.  

Next we get in-depth with Craig Dickinson, a 6th grade teacher who uses ALL SIX Star Wars films in his classroom. Imagine studying the Star Wars saga in class as an assignment! Sign me up!

All that & more in this jam-packed episode!
