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.
Hey, have you heard of this thing called Star Wars Celebration Orlando that happened last week? We were there! From all the panels, after hours shenanigans, official news releases, and stories from the show floor, we run down everything we can remember and speak of publicly that happened on our trip.
We’re a mere 4 days from Star Wars Celebration Orlando!!!!! We’re too geeked to talk about anything else, so we don’t. We look over the recently released panel schedule, calling out the can’t-miss and won’t-bother events, do a little on-air trip planning, and as usual, scheme how to crash the events they don’t want us attending.
Who’s got horns, a red and black face, and got the finger in his latest appearance on Star Wars: Rebels? Hint: it’s not Obi-Wan. We all knew the day was coming when Maul had to face Kenobi again, but this… this “fight” left the Council feeling as cold as a Tattooine night.
Also on the episode, we discuss the possibility of The Last Jedi going back to the start – but of what?? Tune in to find out!
Heyyyyyy…. it’s been over a year since we trolled the interwebs for stupid fan theories – can you believe that!? Well, it’s true. It’s damn true. With “The Last Jedi” and Star Wars Celebration: Orlando to look forward to, we vet the latest (and silliest) theories we can find. It’s more Rey, more Snoke, more stupidity!
This time around on the Nerfherder Council, we take on the controversial documentary “The People vs. George Lucas”. Is the creator of Star Wars deserving of all the criticism thrown his way, or are his contributions to a galaxy far, far away enough to warrant fans’ unwavering respect? Jon of course sides with Mr. Lucas, and has plenty to say on the subject!
Not much happening in Star Wars this week, which is rare! We look ahead to the rest of 2017 and discuss the major events coming up on the Star Wars calendar – and there are a LOT: Rebels, Celebration, Force Friday, The Last Jedi, comics, books, video games… it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan!
Salutations, fellow Herders! Episode 8 has a title – “The Last Jedi” – and we discuss the crap out of it. (That’s what podcasts do!) We take a look at potential story directions, some Solo family history, the Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide, and recap
Welcome back to our regularly scheduled programming! With two Disney-led Star Wars films released, we take a look at each to see which one *feels* more like Star Wars. We tend to lean towards Rogue One, despite its format breaking so many conventions. Why is that? The Council discusses.
…Aaaaand we’re back! This time around on the Nerfherder Council – our first of 2017 – we explain what happened to our last episode. Rathtars! We also reflect on the passing of Carrie Fisher, interview Dark Vader of the Star Wars metal band “Galactic Empire”, and reflect on our first year on the air.
