Here’s a sneak peek teaser of Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys, which will be available on DVD next month. And no nerds, those aren’t the final graphics… But a few familiar faces do appear!
Joey Fatone, host of My Family Recipe Rocks and former member *NSYNC, takes a visit to Rancho Obi-Wan and cooks up a Star Wars breakfast with Steve Sansweet and Anne Neumann. The episode will be broadcast normally on August 18 on the Live Well Network at 8:30 pm ET/PT, but will premiere on Disney XD tonight at August 1st at 8pm ET/PT as part of a three day Disney Fandom programming event showcasing Disney, Marvel and Star Wars.
EW has a clip of Fatone checking out the Star Wars collection at Rancho Obi-Wan.

Rancho Obi-Wan brought a part of the collection to show at Celebration Europe – RebelScum.com has a great gallery of photos of everything displayed at the Rancho Obi-Wan Experience!
Guests Today’s addition to the guest list is the Emperor himself, Ian McDiarmid. It’ll be his third Celebration; His first was the original Celebration Europe in 2007.
Attractions. Steve Sansweet, is another high profile guest, and he’s bringing the Rancho Obi-Wan Experience to Germany. The Experience was extremely popular at Celebration VI; We hope they get a bigger space at CE!
Panels. And, naturally, the collecting track is back!
Scoundrels. With only a few days until the book’s release in January 1, we’re seeing plenty of Scoundrels action. There’s 50 pages on Suvudu and a brief excerpt on io9 (which is also part of the larger chunk.) And Aaron Goins’ review is up over at Star Wars Report.
Interviews. For it being the holiday season, there sure are a lot of them popping up lately. Fangirl has Troy Denning, there’s Brian Wood at Newsarama, Randy Stradley at CBR and Steve Sansweet at GalacticHunter.
Rebels. Martha Wells is nearly done with the first draft of her Star Wars novel.
Another excerpt. Knights Archive was first to spot that there’s a chapter of Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff’s The Last Jedi up at the Random House catalog.
