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.

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.
