Solo Clips + Poe 26

This episode features two separate conversations with a few different members of the Blockade Runner crew. First up, Kevin and John discuss the recently released Solo TV spots as well as two short scenes from the film shown on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Ryan and John follow that up with some discussion of Poe Dameron #26 which features the first post-TLJ storytelling we’re aware of from Lucasfilm. We also briefly touch on Star Wars Adventures and some other Star Wars publishing as we ride out the last couple of week’s waiting for Solo: A Star Wars Story to release.

A Canto Bight Conversation – The Blockade Runner Podcast – January 24th, 2018

Canto Bight Cover

In this week’s Blockade Runner episode Ryan and John discuss the hotly debated Canto Bight sequence from The Last Jedi. Only we both really, really like it, so we’re not so much debating as we are high-fiving each other about how punk rock it is! This conversation was actually part of last week’s episode, but we split it out into it’s own thing because we think the Canto Bight sequence deserves a little more love than it’s getting.

Sacred Jedi Texts: The Last Jedi Art Of and Visual Dictionary Books

Sacred Jedi Texts Cover

Join Ryan and John as we dive into The Art of The Last Jedi and The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary books on this latest episode of The Blockade Runner. We both love reading the Art Of and Visual Dictionary releases that accompany each new Star Wars movie so much, so we’re excited to dedicate an entire episode to them. The Art Of discussion leans pretty far into analysis and gleaning what we can about The Last Jedi‘s production process from the book while the Visual Dictionary portion of the show is more focused on fun little details and lore. Authors Phil Szostak and Pablo Hidalgo have written two incredible Last Jedi resources that we think are essential to any Star Wars fan’s own library of sacred texts, so whether you join us for this discussion or not, be sure to pick up and dig in to copies of both.
