Mike (Caped Chronicles) joins Lou and Erik to discuss the upcoming film projects and George's original plan for the sequels! Also, the live-action series may begin filming this Fall, we may be getting Detours on the streaming network, and we get a new Sith lord joining official canon!
Lou, Katie, and Erik take a look at what's going on behind the current state of fandom and how to move forward in a positive, constructive way. We also take a look at what Jim Rash (Community) reveals about his upcoming role on Star Wars Resistance, the new Star Wars game announced at E3, some book announcements, and a lot of tangents!
Are we treating Star Wars films differently than we treat other films (including other tentpole films)? It seems fans often treat Star Wars films as "events," but might that be setting our expectations up for failure? This week we welcome Katie as a permanent host on Echo Base to look at Solo's performance at the box office and what it means (or doesn't mean) to the world of Star Wars fandom. We then record an extended discussion segment with a spoiler-filled discussion of the Solo film...
Are we getting a Kenobi movie? Do we want one? And what did we find out about the upcoming live-action television series? Come join us at Echo Base for a look future projects in the galaxy far, far away!
Now that Lucasfilm has dropped the news about Star Wars Resistance, what can we expect from the series? Will we get returning characters? What do we think of the focus on pilots and the spy mission? Will people be turned-off by the art style? Join us here at Echo Base to discuss this and much more!
New details are leaked about Galaxy's Edge! A Legends character is rumored to be in Episode 9, but we explain why we think it's false and just a bad idea anyway. All this and more in this week's Echo Base!
Will Yoda return in Episode 9 to troll Rey as a Force ghost? Will Luke return to troll Kylo Ren? We may have to wait to find out, but we did get a famous sci-fi author trolling Star Wars fans. Join us here at Echo Base as we discuss these topics and much more!
The final Solo trailer has been released, and we break it down for you scene by scene. Does it hold up to expectations? Does it make us more excited for the film? Join us here at Echo Base to find out!
