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.

BR 129 Cover V2

The bulk of this week’s show is focused on discussing what Benioff & Weiss’s leaving Star Wars could mean for the franchise’s future as well as what might’ve led to their departure. Ryan shares his experience seeing Knives Out (but says absolutely nothing about the plot, so don’t worry about that) and we also spend a few minutes discussing the most recent Mandalorian trailer.
