They go over the Animated Origins panel, These Are the Droids You’re Looking For panel, the Heroines panel, and they talk about the Cantina panel and the vegetable carver guy. They also talk about the fact that not all of the big panels were livestreamed and are not available on YouTube, they ponder why there were no displays for Rogue One costumes or The Last Jedi, and more. Great episode.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Lots of Rogue One discussion episodes, some better than others.

Assembly of Geeks: Rogue One Reviews starts with some discussion on Gotham City Sirens and a Deadshot movie, then they move into their reviews of Rogue One with guest Dan Zehr (Coffee With Kenobi). While there’s no love for Bor Gullet or Saw, they do discuss the things they liked as well as the things they didn’t like, what they wanted, the CGI, possible plot holes and ranking it.

Bantha Fodder: Episode 15 is a Christmas special as they do their own version of “Twas A Night Before Christmas” but Rogue One themed. Worth a listen.

Bombad Radio: Episode 264 features James, Jeremiah, Jason and author Adam Bray as they talk Rogue One including expectations, the things they liked, disliked and listener feedback. Good episode. Note there’s more listener reviews at the end of the episode so when the main discussion ends and you hear someone else speaking, that’s what’s going on. It threw me off guard at first as I though maybe a different podcast had started playing, but it’s just a listener review. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

They touch on the idea of Rogue One being the core of a new trilogy bookended by Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, they talk about how the film reflects the aesthetic shifts as it goes from a ROTS feel to ANH feel by the end of the film, they cover the music, a lot of scene-by-scene discussion, the locations, the characters, Vader becoming Dracula and much more. Lots of humor and lots of fun make this the best Rogue One discussion I’ve listened to so far. I making this one my pick of the week. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beyond the Vote: A Long Expected Partition jumps back into politics as Riley and Scott catch up on what’s passed and talk about what’s to come. Enjoyable as always and I hope they put out a few more episodes before the election comes to an end.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode 27 mentions their award nomination, they talk about the Darth Vader comic, the book Cinema Alchemist, the new TFA release, and for the main discussion, Kate talks about her trip to Ireland and Skellig Michael with some interview clips which are pretty interesting.

They talk with Daren about both games which leads to some fun stories about the infamous dance mode, the code names involved with The Force Awakens characters in Infinity, and the challenges and secrecy involved. Darin even talks about how well Disney handled the layoff process. Very interesting and entertaining episode. I highly recommend this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review with quite a few Star Wars authors for your listening enjoyment.

Bombad Radio: Episode 207 features an interview with Shannon Eric Denton as they talk comics, Airwolf and Star Wars. Eric has a pretty interesting story as he moved from being a comic artist, to an artist for animated shows, to being a writer. He’s a good guest and it’s a fun conversation. Worth checking out.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 43 is their pre-Force Friday show with some discussion on their collecting trips for Disney Infinity 3.0 figures. Their guests for this episode are Mike and Joao from The Cantina Cast as they dive into some meaty topics like Yoda, Obi-Wan, the chosen one prophecy and more. It’s an interesting discussion episode and good for any general Star Wars fan.

Fly Casual: Episode 55 is a news and rumors episode as they cover Star Wars #8, Kanan #5 and Lando #3. Then they head into Rogue One rumors, Kylo Ren rumors, a discussion on the length of the movie and whether one of the big 3 will die and which one. Overall, good show with the usual mix of humor, Star Wars geekdom and unpredictability. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
