State of the Empire :: Episode 18 :: Prelude to the Awakening

Posted by NerdyShow on December 14, 2015

SotE18State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

We’re but days away from The Force Awakens!

Fear not! Our spoilers are tightly sealed behind the blast doors. Your pre-film Star Wars blackout doesn’t have to include State of the Empire!

It’s hard to believe we’re finally here. The journey began in November 2012 when Disney purchased Lucasfilm and changed our whole perspective. We’d grown disillusioned with Star Wars, but now anything was possible and in just a few days we’ll see if these three years of waiting, hoping, and rampant speculation have paid off.

In this episode, join Cap, Doug, and Matt as we brace for impact. We share what new news we have on the films to come following Episode VII, as well as first-hand experiences from Disney’s Season of the Force, huge news for Willow in this episode’s Willow Watch, launch a coloring contest, and discuss a new hope that the ill-fated video game Star Wars: 1313 might live again! Beyond the spoilerific blast doors we pour over the latest clues and come to terms with the possibility that our initial outline for the film might be true… all of it. All this plus a heated debate about Anakin’s force ghost. Get hype here and stay tuned for our post-film podcast – coming crazy-soon!
