@LiveActionSW – Star Wars’ Mystery Mini-Rig!

MINI EPISODE – Ralph and James, while recording an upcoming episode discover this bizarre Mini-Rig Star Wars vehicle behind the scenes of the Battle of Hoth. Not seen in the film, but definitely made for the picture. Let us know in the chat below what this vehicle might be!

Original John Williams Documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oyQQYOQOGk

UPDATE: Pablo Hidalgo (@pabl0hidalgo) on Twitter:

“This is the “Rebel cannon sled”, a piece of production design that attempted to maximize value by building it on a real vehicle. In this case, an AKTIV snow trac sled.”

“The blueprints for it call out the snow trac base as well as its use of an ‘existing cannon unit.’”

“You may occasionally find photos of Luke in his snowspeeder pilot manning the guns online labeled as a ‘deleted scene’. It’s not. It’s more like a photo opportunity, as this prop / vehicle was on set that day.”

@AssociatedFilms – The Pursuit 7

Over the course of the entire Quarantine, I have been scheming to put together a secret Pursuit movie for Associated Films. It would be a sequel to Pursuit Kids: Hit and Son. I asked my nephews if they would return and they graciously agreed. After months of extensive prep, we finally shot it in one morning and one evening along with long time collaborator Jeff Horn, who shot my Riverman Trailer.

One of the things that you need to make a Pursuit movie is to have a case, a very specific case. The original case belongs to Dylan, and if you want to make a secret Pursuit movie, you will need to find a case without him knowing. Thank god for eBay!

Another key ingredient in a Pursuit film is the inclusion of James “Hit” Soeffner! I let him know what I was doing and told him what I needed to get him in the film. Thanks to his better half, Phenocia, they went out and matched a shot that Jeff and I did during our initial shoot. Their shot is so good and matched our footage perfectly. It’s amazing, considering that they shot it a week later and 400 miles away! It looks so real.

The post credit scene was something I thought up early on. Months before the shooting began, I contacted Lisa and Becky to see if they would be interested in doing this bit. The shooting only took about 15 minutes, but they were willing to come all this way to join me and Stevi to make their Pursuit debut!! Not wanting to leave out Jocelyn in this badass girl gang, she joined us to reprise her roll from Pursuit 4: Orange Crush!

Now that there are multiple cases in the hands of Associated Films’ members, I am willing to hand it off so that the Pursuit will continue!!

Thanks for watching,

It’s true, as much as I love Star Wars, I have found the last two chapters of The Mandalorian leaving me wanting more. Since the pilot episode, my excitement has been beginning to wane. We are both able to see both sides of the coin and have found common ground in our hopes for all of these single stories to come together in an exciting finale.

– On this episode I am joined by Jay Glatfelter (Geek. Dad. Life. & JayAndJack.com) to discuss The Gunslinger. This episode is a bit of an odd one, as I hit record as soon as the conversation begins. So, you will get a little bit of real life banter between two old grizzled podcasters before we swing into the Star Wars talk. ALSO, we sort of get derailed by talking about George Lucas, the Prequels and Star Wars fans instead of talking about the episode.

It is an interesting episode and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did catching up with Jay!

On this eighth installment of the Lightsaber & Leitmotif series, I am listening to the new themes introduced in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! For the first time, a live action Star Wars film wasn’t going to be composed by John Williams. Scoring a Star Wars film would already be a daunting task for any composer, but for Academy Award winner Michael Giacchino there was the added pressure of having to complete the score in about 4 weeks. From conception to the final recording!

On this fifth installment of the Lightsaber & Leitmotif series, I am listening to the two new themes introduced in Attack of the Clones!


In Clones, John Williams introduces new themes for Count Dooku and the love theme for Padme & Anakin.

Unfortunately due to time constraints, John Williams did not score the final act of the film and music from The Phantom Menace was spliced into the film. There was never a release of the full soundtrack for Ep. II and John Williams only created two themes. Because of all this, the episode is very, very short. I apologize, but my hands were tied, much like Obi-Wan’s during his interrogation with Count Dooku.


Lightsabers & Leitmotifs will continue with Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith!

After sixteen years of waiting with bated breath, George Lucas finally decided to make more Star Wars, and no matter what you think of the films themselves, you can’t deny that John Williams continued to bring amazing music to a galaxy far, far away!

Even though Williams doesn’t use leitmotifs as strictly in the new trilogy, he does create a lot of great new themes and I am going to break them down for you!

With only 15 minutes surviving in this version, we are chomping at the bit to see the original Japanese film.
