For most of the interviews I conducted at Star Wars Celebration Europe, I worked to bring to you the voices of people involved on the inside of Star Wars (i.e., Matt Martin, Amanda Jean Camarillo, Michael Siglain, Chris Clarke), creators of Star Wars content (i.e., Cole Horton, Jason Fry, Adam Bray), editors of Star Wars content (i.e., Jordan White, Jonathan Wilkins), or commentators on Star Wars content (i.e., Amy Ratcliffe, Eric Goldman, Steele Saunders).
But this case was a bit different. I met Doug Howard at Celebration Anaheim last year. He was with a friend, I was flying solo. This year, we both brought our families – wife and two kids both – to Celebration Europe. While I was livestreaming on the last day, the Howard family happened to catch the stream, and based on the stuff they could see behind me, they were able to find me and I got to meet the whole family!
And when I asked if they would be game to be interviewed, well … you’ll have to have a listen to today’s episode to hear how differently the members of one family can answer the question about what’s most exciting about Star Wars right now.
And I want to hear from you, too! What’s most exciting to you about Star Wars right now? Rogue One, Rebels, Aftermath? Luke Skywalker, Rey, Ahsoka, Ezra? Norra Wexley, Doctor Aphra, someone else? Have your say in the comments!

Today’s question: There’s a statue outside of Maz Kanata’s castle – who is it a statue of?
