  1. State of the Empire :: Episode 34 :: Han Fired First: Lord & Miller Jettisoned from Han Solo

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

    There’s been a great disturbance in the force. As if two bright voices in pop cinema set about making a Han Solo movie and were suddenly silenced.

    This week we received the shocking news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller had been fired from the young Han Solo film with only three weeks left to shoot. Changing creative directions early into a film is one thing, but a firing this late in production is catastrophic and highly unusual. We discuss this baffling development at length – why it might have happened, what it means for the modern era of Star Wars film making, who to believe, and what Ron Howard being brought in means for the Han Solo film (and Willow!).

    We also explore the latest on The Last Jedi including character reveals, rumor confirmations, leaked info from LEGOs, and behind the spolier-proof blast doors we even provide an outline of a sequence from the film. (more…)

  6. State of the Empire :: Episode 33 :: Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Recap / Season 4 Preview

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

    If you’re watching Star Wars Rebels, then chances are good you’re anticipating episodes of this show more than the new films. It’s a key component to establishing the galaxy as we know it when our Original Trilogy heroes come onto the scene in A New Hope, where the few good things to come from the Prequels live on, and a place for pieces of the lost Expanded Universe to live again. It’s also home to an incredible cast of characters whose fates are 100% up in the air once the films take over.

    We recently learned that Rebels season 4 will end the series – all the tales that showrunner Dave Filoni wants to tell will have been told – and so the year to come is going to be filled with high tension and tremendous consequences. We explore the major arcs and moments from the close of season 3 and share everything we know about season 4… Including details on the debut episode which we were shown at Star Wars Celebration.

    All safely behind the spoiler-proof blast doors, of course. (more…)

  8. State of the Empire :: Episode 32 :: Star Wars Celebration 2017 – Secrets, Speculations, & Insights

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

    We were on-site at Star Wars Celebration 2017 – both in the room for the most coveted panels and experiences, and in the trenches wading through the most merciless lines in the galaxy. As with any Celebration there were thrills and tears; like when George Lucas, Harrison Ford, and John Williams all appeared unannounced and presented a stirring tribute to Carrie Fisher. We saw unseen clips from The Clone Wars, an all-new episode of Rebels, and other assorted goodies, but surprisingly the overall news and announcements we’ve come to expect from past Celebrations was light. When has that ever stopped us?

    If you know State of the Empire, you know that our Force powers of precognition are strong; so join Cap, Doug, and Matt as we journey into a veritable Dagobah cave of nuanced news and subtle hints you may have missed. And, of course, we’re discussing the first teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. There’s a lot of complex context loaded into that simple trailer, so let us be your holocron, showing you the true path. You’ll also hear about the convention experience, which mirrored Disney’s recent Star Wars feature films in a lot of ways… Incredible spectacles, awesome moments, and cool characters – coupled with dubious decisions, poor planning, and awkward moments. You know, a lot like designing a kick ass chrome stormtrooper lady and then flushing her down a garbage chute. (more…)

  9. State of the Empire :: Episode 31 :: The FVIII of the Force

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

    Star Wars Celebration is in less than a week, Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is eight months away, the Han Solo anthology film is in nearly a year… and all that’s just the visible half of this veritable Star Wars sarlaac pit. Lucasfilm has a plan for us all; and that’s to be blissfully digesting space stories for over a thousand years. Or… not?

    We’ve got some hot new intel about what’s to come – intel that could very well be confirmed in this coming week – and not only does that involve some exciting, long-rumored film projects but also a shockingly tactful return to Star Wars scarcity before the next trilogy. There’s lots of provocative details to discuss. Plus: the latest casting surprises and details behind VIII and Han Solo, fascinating things happening in comics and novels, and Willow Watch wherein we learn of a new Willow ally and put out a call to celebrate the film’s 30th in a big way.
