Recent News

There is more Star Wars news than usual this week. The guys start an extended news segment by discussing the beginning of filming for the Han Solo movie. Next, it is no surprise that they turn to developments at Disney World concerning the future Star Wars lands. After that, fans nominated a popular actress to play Ahsoka in a live action Star Wars movie. Who was it and what did she think? In comic news, Marvel announced their next crossover event. Who does it feature and what is it about? Plus, there are three other upcoming books to discuss, a Grammy award for John Williams, and speculation about the future of The Clone Wars on Netflix.

Andor the Antihero

Jyn Erso answered the call and became a hero of the Rebellion. Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe stood watch over the Kyber Temple on Jedha before joining Jyn’s cause. And, Bodhi Rook sought redemption for his service to the Empire. What about Cassian Andor? Cassian starts Rogue One murdering an informant and immediately establishes himself as a different kind of Rebel. But, what makes him tick and what are his goals? Michael Nipp sticks around as SCubed Pod analyses Andor the antihero.

Silence Fools

Finally, it wouldn’t be an episode of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels, if the guys didn’t address some listener feedback. Of course, this means there is another edition of “Silence Fools!” This time, a dedicated listener and frequent emailer has a question about Death Troopers. Then, another listener has questions about potential Star Wars plot holes. When listeners have questions, Dennis and Taxus try to find answers. Also, one listener left an iTunes review. The guys always promise to reader their reviews and emails, and therefore, Dennis and Taxus share and respond in Silence Fools!

Another episode of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrles is here. Even if it is Valentine’s Day, we hope you’ll join us for our own brand of Star Wars coverage. We’re ready for a good time, are you? Once again, thanks for joining us for episode 22 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels.
