Talking Bird: The Special Edition Episode 82

After a brief hiatus, The Bird Boys finally get around to giving their thoughts on Star Wars Celebration 40th anniversary panel,  “The Last Jedi” teaser trailer and poster. Is Robert going to buy “Battlefront II”?  I think you should just listen and stop expecting me to recap all this yammering. -R

Talking Bird: The Special Edition Episode 81

Han Solo’s real name? Bob Iger says Disney will make Star Wars movies for the next 300 years. Robert talks about his recent purchase of the Ralph McQuarrie book. Rebel’s Season 3 finale and hopes for season 4 and much more. This show description is actually a chain letter. If you don’t share this podcast with five friends in the next seven days, Robert will come to your house in a Jar Jar Binks T-shirt and throw lunchmeat at your window. Mesa not joking.

Talking Bird: The Special Edition Episode 80

PRODUCER’S NOTE: This week’s episode contains some excessive potty mouth in the early part and is not for sensitive ears.

 

Does the Lucasfilm Story Group know anything about Jazz? Is Star Wars playing it too safe with it’s filming locales? Does Jon hear John O’Hurley everywhere? Did the Bird Boys enjoy the return of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Rebels’s “Twin Sons”? Is Marvel’s “Doctor Aphra” #5 still fitting the bill?

Talking Bird: The Special Edition Episode 79

Jon reviews “Aftermath: Empire’s End”. Robert tells a story about Robyn Hitchcock and the Ides of March that has no point. Gareth Edwards talks “Rogue One” last-minute additions (He doesn’t appear, we actually talk about them). Frank Oz is mum on Yoda. Jon and Robert have very different experiences with Star Wars: Rebels “Double Agent Droid” and that’s okay. A listener has a question and we do our best to answer it.

Talking Bird: The Special Edition Episode 77

No Oscars for “Rogue One”. Probably no Oscar for Mark Hamill. Will Episode VIII reshoots give Princess Leia a proper goodbye or cause new problems? Do you want to be in Episode IX? Do ‘Space Nazis’ need their own book? What does collecting Stormtrooper memorabilia really mean? ‘Rogue One’ gets a making of book, but is there enough meat on the bone to make it an interesting read. Agent Kallus stars in his own Rebels epsiode, “Through Imperial Eyes”, but are we really seeing how the Empire works? That and much more on TB:TSE #77

Talking Bird: The Special Edition Episode 74

One day past the 20th anniversary of the release of “Star Wars: the Special Edition”, Jon and Robert take stock of all the current Star Wars rumors fit to talk about.

Highlights include: Why no ‘Best Costume’ nod for ‘Rogue One’. Robert doesn’t know what a “Grody Jody” is. Jon is unexcited about a Darth Maul comic. Robert didn’t get the “Red Cup” joke directors Lord/Miller put on their first image from the Han Solo movie. What is influencing Rian Johnson? “The Last Jedi” teaser imminent or still ways off? Did the Han Solo movie make Amy Hennig have to re-tool her Star Wars game. That and much more on TB:TSE #74

Talking Bird: the Special Edition Episode 73

Episode 73 of your favorite Star Wars podcast finds Jon & Robert with “The Last Jedi” on the brain. They don’t think Woody Harrelson is playing Garris Shrike, but they want to see how Grand Admiral Thrawn thinks in Timothy Zahn’s forthcoming novel.

Is Star Wars keeping Marvel comics afloat? Doctor Aphra is becoming the Bird Boys favorite new comic, despite her crappy dad.

They also review “Star Wars: Rebels” Sabine-centric episode “Trials of the Darksaber” and wonder why it took so long to give our favorite Mandalorian graffiti artist her due.

That, and much more on TB:TSE #73

Enjoy and thanks for listening
