Always In Motion The Future Is – The Blockade Runner Podcast #141

We catch up on where he’s at with Star Wars overall before jumping into Clone Wars season 7, recent comics, and both the TROS digital release and novelization. In the second half of the show we discuss the impact COVID-19 may have on the High Republic, Celebration, Galaxy’s Edge, and upcoming Disney+ shows.

Duel of the Fates Concept Art – The Blockade Runner Podcast #140

BR 140 CoverThis episode features a look at over 25 leaked concept art images from Colin Trevorrow’s Duel of the Fates script including sequences, planets, vehicles, and characters not seen in The Rise of Skywalker. I hadn’t actually read the leaked script at the time this episode was recorded, so it’s mostly a reaction to the images themselves and a brief synopsis of the story I’d come across. The art itself is embedded in the podcast chapters or in the video version available on YouTube; if you’re driving or doing the dishes or something while listening, you can check them out on Imgur here.

Diverse Characters & Legacy Characters in the Sequel Trilogy – The Blockade Runner Podcast #136

BR 136 CoverRyan returns in this second post-TROS episode to weigh in on diverse characters and representation in the sequel trilogy. We spend the second half of the show deciding whether or not we believe Han, Luke, and Leia’s stories were more satisfying at the conclusion of the OT or the ST. Plus we throw in a little holiday cheer at the start of the show by chatting about how Star Wars made its way into our Christmas gatherings.

For the Last First Time – The Blockade Runner Podcast #135

BR 135 CoverTROS Spoilers abound as we continue our tradition of putting out an immediate reactions episode with terrible audio quality and terrible blues music pumped your way from a recording done at a local bar. John, Jeremy, Dan, Kevin, and Bart bring you an informal, loose discussion of our first thoughts on the movie. We’ll be back later in the weekend with a higher audio quality, more organized look at the movie (featuring Ryan who’s absent from this recording).
