One thing we learned from last week’s “Solo” conversation is that there’s a lot of unfinished business with this movie! We pick up where we left off and wonder the obvious question: where does the story go from here??
We’re changing things up! This week’s episode is the first a new weekly format. We kick off our shorter-form shows with a brief look back at the most recent film in the Star Wars franchise, “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. Now that it’s ended its
“The Clone Wars” is coming back! It’s been 10 years since its debut, and it’s time the Council talked about it. The show had some amazing high points, but by the end of its run, were the stories worth telling – and do we need any more?
“The Last Jedi” is still inspiring heated debate and likely will for years to come. We got to thinking: has any other movie in the franchise caused this much uproar? We think the answer may be ‘yes’: “The Phantom Menace”! Both movies did not deliver the story fans expected and set the franchise on a different course. Join us as we dissect the similarities and differences between these two movies, and try to figure out just why it is that fans are so triggered by them.
OMG Lucasfilm has cancelled all future standalone Star Wars movies! Or did they?? We react to Collider’s report that development of all non-series movies has been put on hold in response to ‘Solo’ underperforming at the box office.
Welcome back, Herders of Nerfs! Star Wars fans are an incredibly vocal bunch, but lately a new darkness has risen within the community that needs to be snuffed out. Join us as we discuss what’s causing the outcry and what we can do about it. #ForceOutHate
Woo-hoo! We just got done seeing “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and rushed over to record our immediate impressions! Apologies for the audio; we didn’t have our usual setup available for this episode. Have you seen the movie yet?? We hope so, cuz this episode is FULL of spoilers! You’ve been warned. But really: why *haven’t* you seen it yet??? Go watch the movie already!
Hola, Herders! It’s just under 2 weeks and counting until “Solo: A Star Wars Story” hits theaters. We’re at critical mass, people! The original nerfherder is back on the big screen, and the Council reviews what we know thus far, the promo campaign, and even review the tie-in novel “Last Shot”. Is it any good? Well, that depends on how you feel about droids with Wookiee arms and jaded Gungans.
Hi there, Nerfherders! Did you know there are actually *two* Star Wars movies coming out on May 25? We all know about “Solo”, but there’s also “Odyssey”: a Kickstarter-funded fan film about a Rebel recon mission gone horribly wrong. Produced in part as a student project by filmmakers from the Savannah College of Art & Design, we sit down with concept and production artist James Rinere to discuss the process, the production, and the technology behind this ambitious fan film.
Wrapping up our look at the home video release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, the Council discusses the feature-length behind-the-scenes documentary, “The Director and the Jedi”. Does Rian Johnson successfully explain his entry in this fabled saga?
