It’s no secret that “Rogue One” is one of our favorite Star Wars films. IGN recently hosted a live watch-along of the movie with its writers, Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz. After you listen to us talk all about it, go check it out for yourself on YouTube!
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!
Episode IX isn’t just the end of the sequel trilogy, but the entire Skywalker saga! Can this movie rise above expectations and deliver a satisfying conclusion – or is it too tall a task for any movie? We ponder the question and try to figure out how it could be done.
Cassian Andor is returning to the fold in a new series on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service! The early Rebellion era seems rife with storytelling possibilities! What other characters and stories might see a rebirth once this series hits screens? We speculate!
Video games, books, movies, comics, TV, VR… everything released by Disney since acquiring the Star Wars franchise counts as canon! Do we really want comic books standing on equal footing with the movies, though? We discuss!
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??
We’ve officially entered the Resistance era! The latest animated entry in the Star Wars franchise is upon is, and it’s time to give our thoughts on the show’s initial episodes. TL;DR: it’s good!
We’ve got a brand spankin’ new animated Star Wars series tonight: “Star Wars Resistance”! We lay out our expectations for this exciting new series, and ask some tough questions – questions like “Who the &$%# are these characters?” and “Why should we care about these &#$%ing characters?” Yeah. This is NHC. We ask the tough $%&#ing questions.
Last week’s episode was all about Star Wars characters who didn’t live up to the hype. We flip the script and discuss the opposite this week: which Star Wars characters turned out *better* than advertised, or don’t get enough love from the fandom?
