Last week saw a major shakeup in the Star Wars universe with the ousting of Colin Trevorrow from Star Wars Episode IX, so of course Nick and I fired up the mics for a new edition of our Star Wars Time Show.
We actually saved the whole Trevorrow firing, and possible replacement Directors conversation for the end of the cast, so we do go into other things Star Wars before talking about that shakeup. We kicked things off talking about a few new The Last Jedi nuggets, which include a discussion on Kylo Ren’s similarities to Darth Vader, and how Rian Johnson said that this character is fully gone yet. A new image of Supreme Leader Snoke was released too, and it is the best we’ve seen of him in the flesh so far. It’s from a Topps card, and features him in his full CGI form, which really shows just how mutilated his head is. It’s also hard to think of him as a human at this point, because while he’s a humanoid, his skull shape is too large to be considered human. That’s our take and we’re sticking to it.
We also touch in on the Han Solo movie, specifically a rumor about what the Millennium Falcon will look like in the film. Apparently it will have cargo hooks in the front, and have a fresh coat of white paint with blue accents splashed on it.
The Colin conversation comes in last, and we do talk about why he was fired, as well as listing off replacement Directors. These include dream scenarios like Christopher Nolan, as well as likely candidates such as J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson.
