Force(d) Friday? Episode Nein for Colin Trevorrow! $800 Millennium Falcon Revealed! NHC: September 10, 2017

Ciao, Herders! Force Friday 2 turned out to be a debacle for your intrepid Council members, and we recount the events on this episode. But first, we can’t help but pontificate on the meaning of Colin Trevorrow’s exit as director of Episode 9. What’s so hard about getting along with Kathleen Kennedy anyway??

NHC – August 27, 2017: Thrawn, Yoda, Star Wars Books and Character Arcs

Hello again, Star Wars faithful! The Council decided to take a break from movie talk this time, choosing instead to focus on Star Wars books! “Star Wars: Thrawn” leads off our discussion, and then we tangent into character arcs throughout the saga. How much can a character change throughout the story before it goes from interesting to inconsistent?? As always, we have the answer.

And Porgs. Cuz #Porgs.

NHC – July 16, 2017: NHC at Lucasfilm? Worst Standalone Film Ideas and More

Konnicihiwa, Nerfherders! There’s a lot to cover this week. AJ and JT both have plans to visit Lucasfilm this year, opening dates for the Star Wars lands may point to a location for Star Wars Celebration in 2019, we review a fan’s list of possible standalone movie topics, and plenty of other hijinks. Yes, we said “hijinks”. Get off our lawn!!

NHC – July 2, 2017: The Han Solo Episode

Welcome back, Nerfherders! As much as we hate jumping on the news cycle, we – meaning *Jon* – can’t pass up the opportunity when his beloved Han Solo is in trouble! News recently broke that the directors of the as-yet-untitled Han Solo movie were fired with principal filming almost complete. Ron Howard has stepped in to direct. What does all this mean for the film? Turns out – surprise, surprise – Jon has plenty to say on the matter!

NHC – June 4, 2017: Rogue One vs. Revenge of the Sith

Hello again, Herders! We’ve got a rift among the Council, and we bring it to the table. Both ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and ‘Rogue One’ told stories with known events and endpoints – so which movie tells its story better? JT jumps to the defense of Episode 3, AJ takes up the cause for ‘Rogue One’. We get the pulse of our fellow podcasters on this topic to bring a broader perspective to the conversation.

NHC – May 21, 2017: The Force Awakens Trollfest

Hello, fellow Herders! We had grand aspirations for this episode, we really did, but a particular YouTube video (deliberately not linked, so as not to drive any more traffic to it) was so inflammatory towards ‘The Force Awakens’ that we never got to our larger topic. We take on this behemoth of pessimistic clickbait willingly, so does it count as getting trolled??

NHC – May 7, 2017: The Last Jedi Trailer and More Star Wars Celebration!

Greetings and awkwardly long handshakes, Herders! We had so much to say about Star Wars Celebration Orlando, we couldn’t cram it all into a single episode. We managed to cram it into 2, though! In this episode, we give our thoughts on The Last Jedi trailer, talk more SWCO stories, spoil a book for Jon, and discuss the real-world problems of Star Wars costuming.
