Episode 107 – Discussing Star Wars News

On this week’s episode, we’re inviting Sean Connolly to discuss the recent sale of LucasFilm and Star Wars to Disney. Sean has worked in Hollywood, and gives an interesting perspective on the sale.

We start with What Have You Seen lately. Jason and Andy are covering the new James Bond film Skyfall with some minor spoilers, while Andy is also discussing some of the Claire Denis films he saw, along with the new French film Holy Motors.

We then discuss Star Wars, what the deal entailed, and what we would all like to see in the future from the franchise. It’s a lively discussion. Visit our Facebook page linked below to let us know what you would like to see from future installments.

Enjoy the episode!
