After months of her social media posts inciting fans on both sides, Disney made the controversial decision to fire Gina Carano – effectively killing off a fan-favorite character from “The Mandalorian”, Cara Dune. The entire saga is a cautionary and thought-provoking tale that highlights just how difficult it is to find the line between personal expression and professional conduct. Lots to unpack here, folks. Let’s talk #cancelculture.
Kathleen Kennedy just laid out a GIGANTIC slate of Star Wars series coming to Disney+ over the next few years. TEN series, in fact! And just ONE movie. It begs the question: do feature films still have a place in Star Wars storytelling moving forward??
Star Wars doesn’t always get it right when adding onto existing lore with new stories, but “The Mandalorian” seems to nail it every time! We ask the question: why is that??
Eggs… they’re good for you, right? Well, if you’re Baby Yoda – sorry, The Child… maybe not so much! Welcome to the first episode of the LIVE era of the Nerfherder Council.
A possible leak has outed a slew of characters slated to appear in Season 2 of The Mandalorian. More is not always better, though! We weigh the pros and cons of bringing established characters in with the series already a hit as-is.
We think now is a good time to get back to that incredible Disney+ Star Wars show: The Mandalorian! Last time we talked Mando, only 2 episodes had been released. So how did the rest of the season stack up?? Tune in and find out!
Somehow, in over 4 years of podcasting, we’ve never rattled off our own personal rankings of the live-action Star Wars movies. We fix that! It takes a while, though. This is the back half of the conversation.
Star Wars is always thought of as a film franchise – but is that really fair to say anymore? There are now 16 seasons of Star Wars TV released, upcoming, or in development! We take a look at the highs and lows of series past, and of course, speculate on what the upcoming Disney+ series (serieses?) announced might contain. The future of the franchise might actually be on the *small* screen!
We’re 3 episodes deep in “The Mandalorian” now, and y’all won’t stop bugging us to talk about it! Okay, you’ve got your wish. We recorded this before the third episode dropped, so here’s our 2-episode review of the series thus far. TL;DL: We love it!
Theft on the set of “The Mandalorian”, a bogus Episode IX set photo, and armed studio guards watching the skies for drones! All because of spoilers! So we ask: are they a good or a bad thing??
