This week, all four hosts converge on the night of the new The Last Jedi trailer to talk about…Rick and Morty fans making fools out of themselves for a McDonald's promotion, that trailer that we watched right before we started recording. Then, we cap it all off with a FULL SPOILER review of Blade Runner 2049 where the Daves have a rare team up.
With Guest Host David Sims from the Black Check Podcast!
This week, Patches and David are maybe dead at Sundance, so Katey and Da7e decided to keep the "David" quotent the same by inviting David Sims of the Blank Check Podcast to fill in for this week's topics! First: Star Wars Episode VIII has a title and Da7e geeks out over what "The Last Jedi" could mean, then Katey muses with David and Da7e about Carrie Fisher iconography at the Women's March over the weekend. Finally, David has seen Split and Da7e NEEDS to talk about how it's a backdoor sequel to a 17 year old movie. Katey is surprisingly game.
Welcome to another off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!
This week – To a galaxy far far away for a prequel/anthology/spin-off film. It's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Did Jyn Erso and Company's theft of the Death Star plans provide thrills and chills? Join Neil, Joanna, and Da7e in the spoiler-light/spoiler-free section of the podcast, before the trio jump into the SPOILER SECTION and discuss many, many things. There's one thing in particular that's part ethics and part special effects…but also a spoiler.

THIS WEEK'S TIMECODES:
0:00:00 – Intro, Game of Thrones News!
0:11:30 – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Overall Thoughts
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.
I find your lack of SPOILER faith disturbing! – Spoiler discussion starts at 45:39
