Early TFA Concept Art & Episode IX – The Blockade Runner Podcast #84

BR 84 Cover

John does a brief solo show covering possible links between TFA‘s early concept art and Episode IX for our final episode of 2018. We’re mostly just using Peter Sciretta’s Twitter comments from a few days ago as an excuse to pull down and pour over Phil Szostak’s incredible Art Of books for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Follow along if you have the books (or check out the images in the video version), and if you don’t, definitely pick them up if you can – they are must have resources for sequel trilogy fans, no doubt. Thanks for watching or listening in 2018 and here’s to what will undoubtedly be an unbelievable 2019 for Star Wars fans!

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.
