Chris Ray


    Although officially a millennial (born in 1986), Chris has one foot firmly stuck in the past, most notably the years 1977-1983. His earliest memory of a Galaxy Far, Far Away is watching an old VHS of Return of the Jedi at a friend’s 5th birthday party. Although initially terrified of Darth Vader, his intrigue in the saga has subsequently grown and grown, resulting in the full blown obsession he finds himself of the midst of today.

    He is no stranger to a fact or stat, be it Star Wars related or otherwise, previously rolling them out at a rate of knots whilst recording a commentary of the aforementioned Episode VI.

    Chris is a serial podcaster, currently working on ‘A Show Called Hate’ with Big Punch Studios, and counts BBC, ITV and several other UK newspapers, magazines and websites among his writing credits. Online, he is usually found on Twitter and Instagram, the latter used almost exclusively to showcase his ever-expanding collection of Star Wars merchandise.

    James is an active member of the Star Wars collecting community, and is the Brand Director for Jedi News. James is also the host of the Star Wars Collectors Cast, and co-host of RADIO 1138 on the Jedi News Network.
