Disney, Indiana Episode 195 – Rise and Awaken with the Force

Just the other day, in a theater not too far away, our hosts, Tracey and Scott went to see the newest installment in the Star Wars franchise – Episode 7: The Force Awakens. In today’s episode, they go through some production notes on the film, discuss its marketing and promotional tie-ins, examine the critical and popular response so far, as well as share their own thoughts. Our hosts also review the second Disney Infinity 3.0 playset – Rise Against the Empire, which is based around the events of the original Star Wars trilogy. They also tune into WWED for some holiday-themed Star Wars tunes, present the final installment of Star Wars and Me and wrap up the show with an update on a former Hollywood Studios fan favorite musical act.
