The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 80: Droid of Destiny

August 29, 2018

Episode IX pictures, plus casting news! Here's what happens:

  • In Who Got What? we find out that the 6" Black Series Enfys Nest will not be denied.
  • For the firemen!
  • The Sun published some pictures of Episode IX filming on location. It looks really cool. The story that goes along with it gets a bit sketchy though.
  • Dominic Monaghan is joining the cast of Episode IX.
  • Kelly Marie Tran addresses her leaving Instagram in a NY Times article. It's an eye-opener. We find out her real name is Loan.
  • Hayden Christensen offers some advice on dealing with the negative side of fandom in an ET Canada interview.
  • Issue #20 of the Darth Vader comic is pretty brutal.
  • A snippet of a Thröw the Hörns rehearsal in That's Metal.
  • The production values of this week's It Came from the EU have set the bar pretty high.
  • Somehow a bit slips through in listener emails and voicemails.
