Star Wars 7x7, the world’s only daily podcast for Star Wars fans, finished January 2017 with 18% year-over-year download growth, while featuring its first celebrity interview and conducting its first extended interview with a Lucasfilm creative.
“The excitement surrounding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story helped drive Star Wars 7x7’s visibility to new heights,” noted Allen Voivod, host and founder of the daily Star Wars podcast. “Although Rogue One-related content accounted for a significant share of the show’s topics in January, the podcast also featured news and analysis about other areas of interest to fans looking for a daily dose of Star Wars joy.”
During January 2017, Star Wars 7x7 completed 32 episodes, including:
--Detailed Rogue One character analyses
--Interviews with Kevin Yost (trailer creator for Star Wars Rebels) and Greg Proops (improv comedian from Whose Line Is It Anyway? and podrace announcer from The Phantom Menace)
--Updates on the production of Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and the as-yet-untitled young Han Solo movie
--Reviews of Star Wars Rebels episodes released in January, and predictions for the rest of season three of the TV series
--Previews of new Star Wars developments for 2017 in movies, TV, books, comics, events, and the 40th anniversary of the premiere of Star Wars: A New Hope
--Plus looks at Star Wars short fiction and Clone Wars episodes, as well as a trivia challenge
For the month of February, host Allen Voivod anticipates looking both forward and backward during Star Wars 7x7. “The Rogue One novelization will reveal details and add depth to the experience of the movie, and we’ll be going through it in detail,” Voivod says. “We’ll also be covering the final novel in Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath Trilogy, Empire’s End, new episodes of Star Wars Rebels, and a few surprises, too.”
