You know what’s awesome? Star Wars. You know what else is awesome? Disney movies from our childhood. Now, what if I told you that there are some pretty awesome people out there who have combined these two into entities to create a very entertaining spoof called… wait for it… Star Wars the Musical.
Yes, it does exist! A couple of years ago the Space Pirate Queen and I met George Shaw, a very talented composer who has made this childhood dream mashup come to life.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Shaw a couple of years ago to promote the first episode of Star Wars the Musical and now padawans he needs our help to fund the sequel The Empire’s New Groove.

In our geek loving community, we know (and love!) Sean Astin for his portrayal of Samwise Gamgee in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy — or if we go more ‘old school’, we know him as Mikey from The Goonies! Sean is now rallying for our support for his online radio show, Vox Populi, where he hosts a forum for open discussion on politics, government and world events. His show welcomes every view point and encourages growth and learning as a community. Now, he is taking the show on the next phase with a Kickstarter campaign and he wants to reach his second goal within a few days to bring more content for the show.
Check out our interview with him below!
What has been the most inspiring aspect of your first season on Vox Populi for you and what are you hoping will continue on to the next season?
Truth be told, I’ve had the vision for this forum for so long, just getting to sit in the saddle and enjoy modeling an aggressively curious and always respectful tone. Hitting that note was enthralling for me.
