182 Star Wars is 40! (and Jeremy is, too)

182 Star Wars is 40! (and Jeremy is, too)

Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!

We’ve reached an epic milestone in Neverland history! A milestone so epic, that we are celebrating the beginning of a new era. We celebrate something that has changed a generation, and the world. It’s effects are still being felt today.

Star Wars has now been a part of the public conscience for 40 years!

Unfortunately for our favorite Spider-Pan, his birthday just happens to fall one day after this historic event! He’s invited some friends to celebrate this occasion, but it seems there may be a bit of confusion. No matter, he and Lost Boy Retlaw (Eric) will just have to reminesce about Star Tours!

Pixie Heather the WendyNerd is back! She and Jeremy took some time to see the newest in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and they have a review for you this week!

180 Tom Kane Uses the Force!

180 Tom Kane Uses the Force!

Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!

Tom Kane is a voiceover actor that has probably been in just about every animated series you’ve loved. He was both Yoda and Adm. Yularen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the chancellor in Tim Burton’s 9, Magneto in Wolverine and the X-Men, and Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.

Some of his other credits include Ultron in Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow and The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, as well as Mr. Herriman in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Lord Monkey Fist on Kim Possible, and even Professor Utonium and Him in The Powerpuff Girls.

Kane also is a prominent videogame voice actor, appearing in numerous titles from bits parts to major roles like Gandalf, Professor X, and the lead characters in many Star Wars games. He also is the voice of Takeo Masaki, a Japanese World War II soldier in the Zombies game mode of the Call of Duty game franchise.

Outside of animation, he records movie trailers, television promos and commercials, as well as various awards programs, including the Oscars. And in 2012, he took over for Joe Hursh as the voice of the Walt Disney World Monorail System in Florida.

And if that wasn’t enough, Kane also is the voice of the Plague Champion in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II.

That’s what you can read on the official website for Planet Comicon.

Before I share this great audio, we’ll visit The Neverland Trailer Park to take a look at the final trailer for Wonder Woman!
