Prepare for May the Fourth with Team Mousetalgia this week as we welcome "Skywalking Through Neverland" hosts Sarah and Richard Woloski to tell us all about the 2019 Star Wars Celebration event held recently in Chicago. We discuss everything from the latest news about Galaxy's Edge to the announcement of the title of Star Wars Episode Nine: The Rise of Skywalker. We talk about the panels, the merch coming to Galaxy's Edge, and the best thing about Star Wars events - the fandom (aka the "Galaxymeisters"). Also, Jeff attends and reviews the U.S. premiere of "A Spoonful of Sherman," the musical revue covering the music from three generations of the Sherman family which notably includes The Sherman Brothers. Plus - Galaxy's Edge planning, and more!

On April 22, Disney's Animal Kingdom park turns 21, so in honor of the occasion we present a trip report from the park and celebrate one of the most immersive, lovely Disney theme parks, and talk Pandora, safaris, and more. RunDisney also recently held the Star Wars Half Marathon weekend at the Walt Disney World Resort, so we talk about the state of the races with Mousetalgia Minute co-host Julia Layne, who talks about the courses, the expo, the bling and running in that heat! Julia also shares stories about the Magic Kingdom after hours party, dining at Be Our Guest, and engages in a bit of Disneyland vs. Walt Disney World contemplation.
