Buddha-cast: Ep. 112 – Galen Erso Theory Confirmed and Getting Hyped for Rogue One Collectibles

Star Wars fans we’re finally back with a new episode of our Star Wars-centric Buddha-cast, and yes, we still aren’t hitting our bi-monthly goal. What can I say, Nick and I are a bunch of nerf herders I guess.

In this episode of the Star Wars oriented cast Nick and I discuss my theory about Galen Erso, who is Jyn’s Father in Rogue One and a key figure behind the Death Star’s weapon. I had guessed early on that Galen would somehow be involved in the Death Star’s planet zapping beam, and that he would probably be creating it under duress, or under false pretenses. I also speculated that Jyn’s motivation for stealing the plans would be tied to her Father’s plight, and now all of that appears to be legit based on a book releasing before the movie to provide a little backstory on the Erso family.

We also talk about the recently revealed line of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story collectibles, which include Funko Pops, traditional figures, LEGOs, and more. Head on down below to listen in, or grab the new episode from iTunes or Google Play using the provided links.
