Star Wars Time: Bye Bye Tatooine, Luke Loves Mara, and ‘Resistance’ Looks Awesome
No, we were not blown to space dust by the First Order these past few weeks, we were just on a summer break, but Nick and I are back with a brand new episode of Star Wars Time, which I might add may have been my drunkest performance yet. I apologize if I sound a bit off, but I was a bit toasty, so Nick carried a good part of this return episode. Anyway, don’t drink and podcast is what I’m trying to say, or at least don’t drink too much and podcast.
In this episode we cover a few things that we missed while we were on break, which included the story that Jon Favreau’s live-action TV show will cost around $10 million per episode. We also talk about how Mark Hamill mentioned that Luke totally could have hooked up during the time between Jedi and The Force Awakens, which has led some to believe that Kerri Russell may be playing Mara Jade in Episode IX. We tend to think that Mark is just trolling, but you never know. Russell’s addition to the cast is definitely intriguing, because she won’t be a background character in the least, so she may very well be tied to Luke or Rey’s past as some fans have speculated.
We also spend some time talking about the now confirmed cancellation of a planned Star Wars movie being set on Tatooine. Someone involved with the project has come forward and said that it was real, but that it has been scrapped after the Solo box office blunder. This is a major bummer, but hopefully stand alone Star Wars movies aren’t dead forever, because they have been entertaining even if one of them didn’t back up a brinks truck to Disney’s coffers.
Last week the first look at the anime-style Star Wars Resistance dropped, so Nick and I talk about its unique looking visuals, as well as what we thought of the preview. Of course we go on some tangents, which include the origin of Netflix and what Disney’s streaming service may look like, so make sure to give it a listen!
