The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 61: The Pit, We All Fell in the (Sarlacc) Pit

April 18, 2018

A new tv spot for Solo: A Star Wars Story? A new issue of the Darth Vader comic? Possible Celebration news? What?!? Here's what happens:

  • Wookiee Weekend was a bit disappointing, but somehow we still scored some great stuff.
  • The new tv spot for Solo is a good one.
  • Darth Vader does a pretty solid Jaws imitation.
  • Lee-Char, the king of Mon Cala, is a sea monkey, just like in the old comic book ads.
  • Is there a pending Star Wars Celebration announcement? Will May 4th be the day they finally tell us when we'll be happy again?
  • Macklin, you son of a bitch.
  • Great listener emails and voicemails! Thank you Andy, King Tom (we love you) and JP!
  • San Dimas high school football rules.
