look__a_bear_in_space__by_profreakz-d4pp0k5

Episode VIII has begun.

The Fighting In The War Room podcast family acknowledges that Star Wars Mania is here to stay now that Disney-purchased Lucasfilm plans to spin the saga and anthology movies out into the foreseeable future. It’s time to fight in the galactic war room for the foreseeable future! We’ll never see STAR PEACE.

In the fifth Star Wars Special, Joanna Robinson, Matt Patches, Neil Miller and Da7e catch up on the Star Wars Universe news since they last convened in Episode 4. New York Toy Fair 2016 came and went without a bunch of Star Wars To-Do, but we did get a Force Friday 2016 announcement and a giant 16″ BB-8 that has Da7e excited. The Lego Star Wars Universe is expanding with both Resistance Rises shorts and a new Disney XD TV series, StarWars.com gave away the secrets of Rey’s portion bread and OH YEAH, EPISODE VIII: SPACE BEAR STARTED SHOOTING! Laura Dern, Benicio Del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran are added to the cast. We speculate on what that can be (SPECULATE, Episode VIII info is sparse) before jumping into the SPOILER section, which is choc-full of Rogue One goodness.

STAR WARS SPECIAL – Episode 4: Tell That to Kanjiklub

FITWRSWS

What we’ve learned about the universe since The Force Awakens

The Fighting In The War Room podcast family acknowledges that Star Wars Mania is here to stay now that Disney-purchased Lucasfilm plans to spin the saga and anthology movies out into the foreseeable future. It’s time to fight in the galactic war room for the foreseeable future! We’ll never see STAR PEACE.

In the fourth Star Wars Special, Joanna Robinson, Neil Miller and Da7e start by digging into the various nuggets cast, crew, novelizations and screenplays have bestowed upon how we view The Force Awakens. Then, after a brief discussion on if Star Wars can overtake Avatar at the global box office (and an aside about HBO’s Girls for some reason), the team dig deep into what we know about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and  the Han Solo anthology movie. Each host begrugingly picks an actor off the short list to play Han and Da7e tries to convince the other hosts that this may not be horrible. Finally, Da7e vomits up absolutely everything he’s heard about Rogue One, just for good measure.

Then, the conversation devolves into everyone asking specific  questions about The Force Awakens with each other. You know, the thing you and your friends have been doing since you saw the movie anyway.

An All FORCE AWAKENS Episode

The Fighting In The War Room podcast family acknowledges that Star Wars Mania is here to stay now that Disney-purchased Lucasfilm plans to spin the saga and anthology movies out into the foreseeable future. It’s time to fight in the galactic war room.

In the third Star Wars Special, Katey Rich, Joanna Robinson, Neil Miller and Da7e question Matt Patches about his attempt to avoid all information about Star Wars: The Force Awakens not only in 2015, but for the three years since we knew it was coming. READ HIS ARTICLE ABOUT IT HERE. What was still a surprise? What was unavoidable and what wasn’t as fun as it should be?

Then, the conversation devolves into everyone asking specific  questions about The Force Awakens with each other. You know, the thing you and your friends have been doing since you saw the movie anyway.

A Note on SPOILERS: This podcast ASSUMES you have seen The Force Awakens.

Plus The Force Awakens speculations

The Fighting In The War Room podcast family acknowledges that Star Wars Mania is here to stay now that Disney-purchased Lucasfilm plans to spin the saga and anthology movies out into the foreseeable future. It’s time to fight in the galactic war room.

In the second Star Wars Special, Matt Patches (who has managed to avoid all information about the Force Awakens except that the Millennium Falcon is in it) and Joanna Robinson engage with Da7e on what level of Star Wars minutiae is a step too far. Trivia? Expanded Universe? Then, Katey Rich and Joanna entertain Da7e’s R2-D2 theory as a way of talking about how to improve the prequels.

Then – This is the LAST PODCAST RECORDED before everyone sees The Force Awakens! – it’s finally time for The Storm of Spoilers crew to apply their Game of Thrones Citadel of Crazytown to Episode VII. No one has actually seen the movie, but everyone has questions. Then, the hosts brainstorm possible titles for Episode VIII.

A Note on SPOILERS: On a scale from Mister Patches (knowing nothing) to Storm of Spoilers (spoiling everything), this episode’s final segment TOTAL SPOILAGE POSSIBLE. There will be a GONG SOUND 1 hour and 27 minutes in in to warn you when that the speculation is about to happen.
