This episode features Colin Cantwell, original designer and model maker on Star Wars 1975-1977! How did he come up with the X-Wing design? What did the original Millennium Falcon look like? Why is there a Death Star trench? He answers these questions, plus tells us about his time at NASA during the moon landings and so much more. In a word: Incredible.  

BB-8 On The Run is a beautifully illustrated book released by Disney-Lucasfilm Press on Force Friday. Written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Matt Myers, it is a perfect bedtime story. Jocasta Drew Kaplan and his 2 daughters drop by to review the tale with us.
