Insider #96: Insight for the casual fan

So I picked up the new Insider today, and was going to write a short recap of the contents, but thankfully StarWars.com already excerpted the most interesting part – an interview with Rick McCallum where he talks about the live-action TV show. There’s also a nice (lengthy!) article on the 501st.

Sadly, not much else new – an interview with a couple of the Imperial actors and a look at Death Star pretty much rounds it out, as well as a bunch of stuff any remotely well-read or web-saavy fan already knows. In other words, pretty much par for the course.

There is a teaser for the next issue, which will be Luke and Leia-centric, featuring interviews with Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.
