Disney Considering Star Wars and Marvel TV Channels?

Disney-Star-Wars-Marvel-Canale-TV

Mickey, Spidey, and Yoda all under one roof? Disney has lots of other channels, such as ESPN, ABC, Disney Jr., and Disney XD; and Disney CEO Bob Iger sounds like he might be keen on expanding the family. During an investors call last week, Iger mentioned possibly creating TV channels for both Star Wars and Marvel, respectively. (more…)

In a world where the machines have risen up, spellchecks are useless and autocorrect walks against wombat pinball. Internet word slinger Mason Fabulous and satin voiced flim-flam artist and brand expert Hermes “Bear” Brunson must band together to save the world the only way they now how. By watching trailers on YouTube and talking over them.

Other than watching videos on the radio (which is as exciting as it sounds) this week on the show: (more…)

01-Boba-Fett

We’ve all wondered, how did Boba Fett evolve from that precocious little clone upset about his father’s decapitation to becoming the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy? Well, maybe some of us want to forget about that first part because who wants to think of Boba Fett as a 10-year-old giving Obi-Wan Kenobi the stink eye? In fact who wants to think of Boba Fett’s childhood period? Perhaps that all will be skipped in the end because, as expected, it’s been announced that Boba Fett will be the subject of the second Star Wars Anthology film. Not bad for a guy who has about six lines of dialogue in three movie appearances. (more…)

Josh Trank Kicked Out Of A Galaxy Far, Far Away?

Trank 4

A few days ago, news of Josh Trank’s departure from the as-of-yet untitled Star Wars spinoff hit the internet, though not quite as hard as one may have assumed.  Since Trank’s absence from the Star Wars Celebration panel that he was to share with Star Wars: Rogue One director Gareth Edwards, rumors had swirled that maybe Trank wasn’t getting along so well in a galaxy far, far, away, so news of his departure was almost expected.  The unknown in the matter was the reason behind his (presumed) decision to leave.  Well, THR has received some new information that points more towards Trank being asked to leave one of the most profitable franchises in history, rather than choosing to leave on his own.  (more…)

Is their trouble in a paradise far, far away?

Fans of Star Wars at one point or another have wondered what it would be like to sit in the director’s chair, but only a luck few will ever know what that’s like. Let’s say you become a wielder of cinematic dreams, and you were foolhardy enough to take on Star Wars. And let’s also say that you’re given your shot at the saga, and you get to take the keys to the Star Wars universe to make a movie of your own. With great power comes great responsibility though, and you realize just how big it is and what pressure comes with it. The fantasy of making an actual Star Wars movie might not meet up with reality, and Josh Trank may have just learned that lesson. (more…)

In the past, with very few exceptions, anything that wasn’t in the live-action movies did not make the cut as canon so far as Star Wars was concerned. But in today’s franchise-heavy climate, if you’re not divesting your IP you’re leaving cash on the ground because fan service equals money in the bank (theoretically). So what about the future? Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD, which is set between the two movie trilogies, has brought in characters from both Star Wars eras, but could the reverse also be true? Might Rebels show up in future Star Wars movies or TV series in a live-action capacity? Well, according to the two men behind Rebels, the answer is a definitive maybe. (more…)

Star Wars Celebration 2015 Wrap Up!

Celebration

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim is now behind us and there are plenty of fanboys and fangirls out there who feel pretty spent after 4 days of absolute bliss.  The greatest convention in the galaxy brought with it plenty of surprises and even a few tears (of joy, of course) and if you were among the tens of thousands in attendance, making the decision to either go to work or stay in bed on Monday morning was probably a tougher decision than whether or not you should have paid that $15 for the food truck Wookie Fries while at the convention.  Nerd Bastards was on hand for some of the more glorious moments of the convention, so we wanted to share a few of those moments with you!

Plot for ‘Rogue One’ and Teaser Revealed

One of the most intriguing developments coming out of Star Wars and Lucasfilm‘s acquisition by Walt Disney Studios is that we’re not just getting a new trilogy, we’re going to be getting a new movie every year. At least that’s Disney’s desire anyway. Shortly after production got underway on The Force Awakens, the first chapter of the new trilogy, Disney started recruiting talent for the first of a series of films to take place in the Star Wars universe, but is not a part of the Skywalker saga. For the first of these films we know the director (Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards), we know the star (Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones), and we know the name (Rogue One). But now, most importantly, we know what it’s going to be about… (more…)
