Comedian Josh Robert Thompson has been our favorite George Lucas impersonator for years now, since he debuted his twisted take on GL in WALKING WITH GEORGE LUCAS and THE SECRET HISTORY OF STAR WARS audiobook, we here at RFR have been big fans. Now, JRTs carbon copy take of the famous director has been amped up, thanks to the addition of Deepfake technology in videos like GEORGE LUCAS GOES TO VEGAS. JRT joins us IN THE CANTINA to talk about how his career, combined with his passion for Star Wars, led him to the creation of these hilarious videos. Baby Yoda made a strong showing at Toy Fair 2020. Criz Bee from Jedi Business was at the big event and he gives us his full report on all the cool STAR WARS merch reveals. Huge Disney corporate news broke this week that could have huge ramifications on the galaxy far, far away as Bob Iger has moved on from his perch as CEO of the Walt Disney Corp. We talk about his successor Bob Chapek and how his leadership can be very different from that of Mr. Iger. Star Wars In Pop Culture features a deep Original Trilogy reference that all Jedi dads will love and appreciate.
