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!
It slices! It dices! It… flies?? Yep! We’ve got flying Inquisitors now, thanks to their handy-dandy roto-sabers. We’ve also got Sith temples, Maul’s re-emergence, Ahsoka’s final(?) fate, and a blinded Jedi. Betcha didn’t see that coming! Neither did Kanan. 😛
Star Wars: Rebels is ending its second season. Seems like a good time to weigh the merits of this series versus its predecessor! And a good time to talk Battlefront, Star Wars theme parks, NSFW Wookieepedia articles, and more.
Star Wars’ annual “This Is Madness” tournament has arrived! With a whole crop of new contenders this year, there’s no telling who will come out on top – but we tell anyway. You’re welcome.
From the opening notes of A New Hope all the way to the final scene of The Force Awakens, the soundtrack of Star Wars is as much a character as Luke or Rey – in fact, the soundtrack may reveal a possible link between the legend and the fan-favorite! We listen and discuss. Also on this show, how NOT to play Battlefront, our five-minute Deadpool review, and more!
Is Kylo Ren a better character than Darth Vader? At least one online columnist seems to think so. The Council discusses. And speaking of characterizations, rumors are swirling about a potential villain for Rogue One, and what kind of action that villain may see. The Dark Side rules this edition of The Nerfherder Council – because good is dumb.
