  • Celebration Anaheim 2020 is officially cancelled. Eric likes to think ReedPop decided to finally announce it because he emailed them during the show last week.

Ep. 173: 10101101

The docuseries on The Mandalorian continues, we used pre-vis to plan this entire episode, and we still don't know the score on Celebration. Here's what happens:

  • Hey guys, thank you for being patient with us while we've talked about what's happening the world right now. We know that our views aren't necessarily the same as everyone else's on these things, and we aren't intending to be polarizing. It's practically impossible to not have stuff like this come up in a conversational show of this format. This is not going to be a permanent recurring segment of the show!
  • The S01E06 of Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian, Process, we get to see a detailed breakdown of how the episodes get made. It's pretty amazing what they're able to accomplish with the pre-visualization of each episode, and it's also amazing what it allows them to do in live action!
  • So, what's the deal with Celebration? Seriously, what's the story? We're getting nervous.
  • Please watch S01E04 of Star Wars Rebels, Fighter Flight with us! Zeb almost becomes Old Yeller in this one we think.

Ep. 172: Impractical Effects

He's the baby, stop-motion is still a thing, and some publishing dates have changed. Here's what happens:

  • Hey, just a heads up, this episode starts off with some discussion about what's going on in the world as of right now (3 June 2020).
  • Watch this video that John Boyega put together. It's a trip!
  • Dallas's streak on Who Got What comes to an end. I bet he rallies though.
  • Episode 5 of Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian is heavy with Child.
  • The High Republic-era books have all been pushed back. The next Thrawn novel has been moved up though!
  • Take a look at S01E03 of Star Wars Rebels, Droids in Distress with us! Lots of people get killed, and R2-D2 was in on it the whole time.
  • We've got a new shirt coming. LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO.

Ep. 171: Turn Up the Volume

Boba Fett's armor, even more speculation on season 2 of The Mandalorian, we finally see the Volume, and more! Here's what happens:

  • We don't even make it past Who Got What before something breaks.
  • Lightsabers sure are cool.
  • It's been reported that Timothy Olyphant will be wearing Boba Fett's armor in season 2 of The Mandalorian. That's how it was worded, so we've got our money on the notion that he's playing someone from the Aftermath series by Chuck Wendig!
  • After lots of whining by Eric, we finally see the Volume in Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian. We talk about Ep. 4: Technology at length, and speculate on what other productions may want to use this.
  • We watch S01E02 of Star Wars Rebels, Spark of Rebellion, Pt. 2 and a couple of us are eating some crow on this one.

  • Sweet May 4th finds.
