With Star Wars: The Last Jedi rolling out on Digital HD this week, Lucasfilm released a new episode of The Star Wars Show a day ahead of its usual Wednesday slot, reporting back from Mark Hamill's Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony that took place last week.

ABRAMS WILL DIRECT STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Walt Disney Studios sent out the official press release a short time ago, complete with quotes from all the involved players. Interestingly enough, the day the Abrams news flared up again this week, I had both of my girls decked out in STAR WARS t-shirts, a picture of which I shared on The Rock Father social nets.
