The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 65: Roseanne Isn’t the Only Barr That Sucks

May 16, 2018

The media blitz for Solo: A Star Wars Story continues. A new issue of the Darth Vader comic is here! Here's what happens:

  • Luke is smooth, I tell ya.
  • Eric vs. Sonic (the eatery, not the hedgehog). Cool vintage toys. Dallas scores some rad stuff.
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story is nearly upon us. The media embargo after the premiere has been lifted, so watch out!
  • A cool behind-the-scenes look at Solo. Harrison Ford surprises Alden Ehrenreich during an interview. Woody Harrelson says great things about Alden and the movie.
  • Some updates on the Jon Favreau-helmed live-action series.
  • Is an Obi-Wan movie in pre-production? Fantha Tracks has the scoop.
  • Darth Vader issue #16 has some surprises!
  • Listener voicemails, including a first-time contributor! Thanks Ryan! Our pal JP has some questions about Chewbacca's Dejarik strategy.
  • Matthew, Gunnar and Josh.
  • There's nothing on Earth that should keep us apart.
