  1. State of the Empire :: Episode 38 :: Han Solo and the Kingdom of the Crystal Porg

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

    The suspicious shakeups in the Star Wars Universe keep on coming! In this episode we discuss Colin Trevorrow being booted off Episode IX and the return of JJ Abrams. Along with this more-publicized director change is a promising switch of writers and the reoccurring suggestion that this pivotal film is even more serious than we know – wrapping not just this new trilogy, but uniting and concluding this trilogy of trilogies.

    Cap, Matt, and Doug also recap all the social media teases spinning out of the newly minted Solo – A Star Wars Story. Yeah, we don’t love the title, so we made up some of our own. This summer, Ron Howard has been busy reshooting more of the film than expected. We discuss the cast that’s been added and dropped, the major expanded universe surprises, and more. Plus, the first big batch of Last Jedi rumors (safely shielded behind our spoiler-proof blast doors) and new interpretations of the mystery presented by the looming Obi-Wan Kenobi film.

  3. State of the Empire :: Episode 37 :: The Last Jedi Trailer – Recap & Insights

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

    The final theatrical trailer for The Last Jedi is here – and we are overwhelmed. Join us as we unpack all that we know… or think we know… about the forthcoming Star Wars sequel. Unlike The Force Awakens, this film still has us grasping at straws for determining story beats and gleaning insight into character arcs. However, between this and the behind-the-scenes featurette, we’re beginning to see the big picture. Rumors have been confirmed and the ominous conflicts between light, dark, and (most importantly) grey sides of The Force have taken shape.

    What’s the F8 of Tr8tor? Who’s the MVP of new cuteness -BB-H8 or the porgs? Will Santa Luke save Christmas? Where does The First Order get all those wonderful toys? We’ve got questions, and in some cases we’ve actually got answers.

    Business is scary. The last thing we ever want is a money grubbing corporation putting their greedy hands on a medium built up and loved by a fandom and a community.

  10. State of the Empire :: Episode 36 :: Rogue One Six Months Later: The Great Anthology Experiment

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

    One of the most exciting things to come from Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm was the chance to tell new Star Wars stories on the big screen –  stories beyond the ever-continuing the episodic saga. Films exploring The Old Republic, Boba Fett finally having a chance to really earn that fan following, tales of smugglers, scoundrels, and smarmy aliens – anything is possible. The debut spin-off film, Rogue One, was a ballsy first foray into a bigger cinematic universe; and with that risk came a Hutt-load of trouble.

    Rogue One released to great acclaim and profit, but what hasn’t yet come out is the real story of what went on behind the scenes. In the months following the film’s release, the rumors about drastic, character-reshaping reshoots have become more and more substantiated and fragmented clues about the movie’s original narrative have been scattered like the dust of Alderaan across numerous filmmaker interviews. Was Rogue One a bad film saved at the last minute? A better movie made safer by focus groups? This film’s production is a fascinating untold story, and in this episode we’re assembling all the nuggets of insight we’ve collected.

    Who was Sergent Jyn Erso? Was Krennic ever a competent villain? Who lived and who died between reshoot and release? Will we see more ? and ?? And perhaps biggest of all, what do the struggles of Rogue One and the meltdown of the Han Solo film mean for the future of these experiments in Star Wars filmmaking? (more…)
