From AwesomeCon 2017, Star Wars super fans once again rampantly speculated about the future of the Star Wars universe… with a little help from the audience.
Panelists: Bria LaVorgna, Alexandra Petri, Eric Geller, Kyle Joseph E.
News this week kicks off with something in the “humanity is awful” vein. Over $200,000 in collectibles were stolen from Rancho Obi-Wan and re-sold on the market. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the suspected thief is Carl Cunningham. Folks on the convention circuit are familiar with Carl, as he is known for running tours of hard-to-get-to filming sites and has consulted with Lucasfilm for various projects.
This episode we ditch a main topic to talk entirely about games like Prey, Horizon and Andromeda, and books like Borne and The Stars Are Legion. Bonus things: Megan released her Twine game,Montana, and Saftalked about robotsat GX Australia!
Meanwhile, are you a fan of Star Wars video content ala Rebels Recon and the Star Wars show? Well rejoice, because there’s more on the way. Star Wars in conjunction with Disney’s Maker talent will be rolling out a show dedicated to Star Wars and science hosted by Anthony Carboni.
It turns out that we are Adam Scott and Adam Scott is us. Watch him fanboy freak out over finally getting to meet his hero Mark Hamill.
From the “Huh, interesting” file, Rian Johnson made one request of J.J. Abrams. Alter the ending of TFA so Artoo made the journey to conclude the film with Rey instead of BB-8 as originally planned.
And we conclude on an adorable note. Mark Hamill surprising the ever loving daylights out of Star Wars fans.
