The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 172: Impractical Effects

June 3, 2020

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.
