Some of these topics include developments at the recent D23 Disney show in Anaheim, Star Wars theme parks, Colin Trevorrow directing a Star Wars movie, more Marvel stuff including Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange, Mr. Robot, a potential cameo appearance in an upcoming Star Wars movie by Darth Vader himself and a whole lot more, more more.
