Today on the show, we’re geeking out about Star Wars. I know, what else is new, right? We’re joined by Pablo Hidalgo, who is one of the most public faces of the Lucasfilm Story Group – the group responsible for maintaining order and keeping all of the creative ducks in a row within the Star Wars universe. If you’re a regular listener, you probably recall our chat with Leland Chee back on episode 71, during which we went a bit into the inner workings of the Story Group and the magic that goes on behind the scenes.
Prepare to dive even further down that rabbit hole as we talk to Pablo about his personal history with Star Wars (hint: it involved many hours of RPGs), how he came to Lucasfilm, and what he does on a day-to-day basis – besides fielding fans’ questions and debunking crazy theories online.
We also get the inside scoop on whether we might ever see Star Wars Detours or George Lucas’s original plans for a sequel trilogy. All of that plus his earliest Star Wars memory, his favorite fan theories, and the many amazing books he’s written. And the one thing he’d like to tell every Star Wars fan if given the chance.
Listen in and enjoy! And, of course, may the Force be with you.
