Star Wars Celebration Chicago has come and gone, and we were there for all of it! Join us on this extended episode as we recount our personal experiences and a bit of the news that came out of the massive event.
Screen Rant says the sequel trilogy was rushed out and ruined Star Wars. We disagree. Kinda.
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!
Salutations, Nerfherders! This time around, we turn the mics on Brad Weatherholt and Kyle Brodeur, the creators of a new documentary called “The Prequels Strike Back”. Is it possible that George Lucas was telling a smarter story than anyone gave him credit for? Tune in to hear about the movie that explores that very question – and download “The Prequels Strike Back” starting September 14th!
Welcome back for another thrilling edition of The Nerfherder Council! With Jon and Steve back, we discuss the late and hefty reshoots ordered for Rogue One. Is this the Disney-fication of Star Wars at its worst, or is it righting the ship? We toss a few ideas around. Join us and let us know what you think!
We all know and love A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Heck, we’ve even debated which one deserves the title of “Best ‘Star Wars’ Movie” on this very show! But what if we’ve had it wrong this whole time?? There are some people (or one, at least) who think Return of the Jedi is the best of the series. We weigh its merits – because ultimately, even the “worst” of the original trilogy is still amazeballs. Amiright?!
Star Wars is the greatest saga of all time – but which movie is the greatest of the bunch?? It often comes down to A New Hope versus its sequel, The Empire Strikes Back. So let’s discuss, shall we?! It’s kinda what we do around here. Also: boobie trees.
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. 😛
What happens when someone goes after JT’s beloved prequels? LOTS of NSFW language for Steve to edit! Check it out in the third episode of the Nerfherder Council, now enhanced to match the creators’ original vision.
