The 3 year, 1 month and 17 day countdown is over and it's finally here. The Force Awakens hit screens worldwide last Thursday and RADIO 1138 is covering the action.
We talk Team Jedi News at the European Premier of The Force Awakens, chat with Empire Magazine's Features Editor Dan Jolin, groove through the galaxy with Darth Elvis and have fun at MonCalCon at Farthest From 10 with Dave Oldbury and Gerald Home.
All this, and news of future changes, on an action packed episode of RADIO 1138.
James Burns catches up with Steve Sansweet to find out what he'll be doing in LA this weekend with Rancho Obi-Wan and Target. Steve also opens up the first Smugglers Bounty box from Funko, and we find out what's inside.
Teresa Delgado, from Fangirls Going Rogue and Star Wars Bookworms, joins James to talk collecting which includes Hallmark, Funko, Disney Infinity 3.0, Her Universe and much more too.

There are just three weeks to go until The Force Awakens arrives in this galaxy and we're preparing to land with our penultimate episode of 2015. We travel to Birmingham for MCM Expo and chat with Mark Mulcaster of the Rebel Legion UK and Ginny Tait and Gary Hailes of the UK Garrison. Team Jedi News congregate to discuss the show and more, we rock out with Darth Elvis and the premier of their new track Sithmas on Hoth and get the Insider track on issue 161 and the 2016 Special Edition with Jonathan Wilkins.
All squeezed into 95 action packed minutes here on RADIO 1138.
