BR 120 CoverInspired by the recent D23 Rise of Skywalker trailer, this week we’re taking a look back at each of the saga films’ teasers. We discuss the evolving art form of movie trailers, which teasers most accurately reflect the films they’re advertising, and why watching the Attack of the Clones and Force Awakens teasers is such a transcendent experience.

Hello There Resistance Trailer, Obi-Wan Rumors – The Blockade Runner Podcast #117

BR 117 CoverAfter what has felt like a considerable draught in major Star Wars news this summer, this week’s show is packed with rumors and speculation about The Rise of Skywalker, Rian Johnson’s upcoming Star Wars film series, a possible (likely?) return to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi for Ewan McGregor in a Disney + series, and our reactions to the Star Wars Resistance season two trailer. So much to cover and quite a lot to say about each topic in this extra-large episode of the Blockade Runner Podcast.

Ryan’s audio this week is coming from Skype as his local recording malfunctioned, so if you notice that it sounds a little off, that’s why and we’re working on it and will hopefully have things back to normal next week.
