Welcome back, Herd faithful! We wrap up our coverage of ‘The Last Jedi’ on this episode in grand fashion: with a podcaster roundtable! The hosts of Less Than 12 Parsecs and The Blockade Runner join us to discuss the more puzzling aspects of the movie. We talk about all the good stuff: Force ghosts, Resistance bombers, Carrie Poppins, scary Force holes, and more!
It’s our 50th episode! We’ve got our buddy Nick Ammons joining us on this one, sparring with JT about most topics. It’s no secret The Force Awakens is down the list of JT’s favorite Star Wars movies, Nick says it’s better than the vaunted Rogue One. We also dig into prequel fandom, Rebels, soundtracks and more!
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!
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!
“Rogue Friday” live at Toys R Us didn’t work out as planned, but it makes for entertaining show fodder! Join us as we recount our misadventures in live streaming, and then get theoretical about Disney storytelling in the George Lucas era of the Star Wars timeline: what it means for the saga, how it might differ from the style we’re used to, and what might become of all of these previously unknown characters. Also, Steve talks on this one!
It’s time to celebrate, fellow Herders! With Star Wars Celebration Europe having come and gone, we discuss the big news coming out of the annual event. We cover blind Jedi, a legend from Legends being reborn in the new canon, and the overall effect of “rejected” Star Wars ideas being brought in to new stories – and it was all streamed LIVE on Facebook. Check it out, and be ready to tune in and take part on Facebook next Wednesday at 8:00pm EST when we do it all again!
