The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 71: Jason Ward: A Making Star Wars Story

June 27, 2018

Did we (and everyone else) jump the gun on the news that the "A Star Wars Story" movies have been put on hold? Jason Ward from drops in to help us figure it out. Here's what happens:

  • Eric tries to negotiate with terrorists in a Target. They're related to him.
  • Luke discovers an auction site we weren't hip to:!? Mind blown.
  • Dallas has seen Solo: A Star Wars Story more than the rest of us combined almost.
  • What's the future of the standalone Star Wars films? What do we think will or want to happen going forward? What's up with the live-action tv series?
  • It turns out that certain areas of the internet are filled with turds, as we've long postulated.
  • Check out Jason Ward's Star Wars happenings on Twitter: (@MakingStarWars)
  • Dig the outro music? That's Jason's latest single, Hole Through Me, which you can find at along with his other works. Spoiler alert: they're good.
