Resistance Hero Scott Saw Episode IX Footage and Lived to Tweet About It! – The Blockade Runner Podcast #93

BR 93 Cover

Our recording session this week went too long again, so we’re splitting it up into two episodes, the first of which features our discussion of the Episode IX footage shown at the Disney shareholder’s meeting earlier this week. Shout out to newly minted RESISTANCE HERO @Ladewig for his tweets that made the pain of having to wait until Celebration Chicago to see any footage sting just a little bit less. We wrap this first episode with Ryan’s endorsement of Queen’s Shadow

Tune in later this week for our discussion of the most recent episodes of Resistance and don’t forget that the audio podcast features chapter markers if you want to skip to a specific section. As always, we welcome feedback at blockaderunnerpodcast@gmail.com or on Twitter at @blockaderun.

Star Wars: Always and Galaxy’s Edge, Celebration Chicago Updates – The Blockade Runner Podcast #92

BR 92 Cover

We start this week’s episode out by sharing our appreciation for Topher Grace and Jeff Yorke’s Star Wars: Always before moving onto breaking down last week’s Galaxy’s Edge impressions and updates (via Anthony Breznican and EW). We wrap up this (long) show by discussing the recent panels and guests announced for Star Wars Celebration Chicago.

Also, John takes a weird heel turn during our discussion of Galaxy’s Edge selling generic Jedi robes. Sorry about that.

The Power of the 90s: 1997 (Part 1) – The Blockade Runner Podcast #90

BR 90 Cover

1997 was a HUGE year in Star Wars; so huge in fact that we’ve ended up breaking our Power of the 90s episode for ’97 into two parts. Episode 90 features our discussion of the Special Editions’ theatrical and home video releases, The Phantom Menace beginning filming, and the video games and comics released that year as well.

Also, we’re using chapters in our audio files now, so you can jump around to the segments you’re most interested in if your podcast app supports them.

Looking Back at Phantom Menace Documentary The Beginning – The Blockade Runner Podcast #88

Power of the 90s 1999 The Beginning

This week we kick off our Power of the 90s shows covering 1999 (weirdly before we’ve done 1997 and 1998…whoops) by taking a look back at the incredible Phantom Menace documentary The Beginning. Join us for Jar Jar puppets in the back of Toyota pickups, Rick McCallum’s charismatic cursing, heavy Jake Lloyd and George Lucas appreciation, and a whole lot of discussion of the podrace sequence.
