Weesa back! Our summer vacation is over, and we’ve got a few stories to tell. We also did some pondering during our time off. The big question we posited: what if Rogue One was a trilogy? As the best-received film of the Disney era, could more movies in this story have altered the fandom’s take on their stewardship thus far?
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!
This week’s episode continues our conversation about our first experiences watching Star Wars. Yep, we’re not done talking about it yet! This time it’s Steve’s turn to relate his time checking out The Phantom Menace – in 2D and 3D! (The poor guy.)
Two Star Wars Stories, two very different results. What made “Rogue One” such a success, while “Solo: A Star Wars Story” floundered at the box office? And what do these two movies tell us about the future of Star Wars films beyond the Skywalker saga? Let’s dig in and find out!
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?
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!
Allo, Nerfherders! As the Council gears up for a new The Last Jedi trailer on Monday night, we take a moment to look back on our favorite moments from the franchise so far. There are some sentimental favorites, some groundbreaking scenes, and no named characters were killed in the making of this episode.
Hello again, Herders! We’ve got a rift among the Council, and we bring it to the table. Both ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and ‘Rogue One’ told stories with known events and endpoints – so which movie tells its story better? JT jumps to the defense of Episode 3, AJ takes up the cause for ‘Rogue One’. We get the pulse of our fellow podcasters on this topic to bring a broader perspective to the conversation.
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!
