Assembly of Geeks:Failing X-Men, Reviving Spider-Man & Missing The Goonies” has lots of the usual geeky discussion. They talk about movies that should have ended sooner, they have a review of Kingsmen: The Secret Service, they cover some news topics like Harry Potter Funko items, and the conundrum of Marvel being a comic book company or a movie company. They also tackle the movie The Goonies and whether that type of movie works any more or whether child adventure movies have changed into something else. Lots of interesting topics and fun discussion.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions “Call to Action” episode features Tarkin voice actor Stephen Stanton who adds some excellent behind the scenes insight to the episode as he talks about his character and the show. They also talk some about Star Wars: The Clone Wars and James Luceno’s book Tarkin. Excellent episode and one you’ll definitely want to catch.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, later this year we will get a five episode series called LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales. The 22 minute episodes will air on Disney XD and will present a new take on the six films as seen through the eyes of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Sounds like a pretty cool idea and if Michael Price is onboard for these, then we’ll certainly be in for some good entertainment.
