DVO Podcast: Star Wars Extended Rumor-Verse.
With Solo – A Star Wars Story in theaters this weekend, we talk about all of rumors swirling around Disney’s plans for the “Galaxy Far Far Away.”
The second of three planned spin-off stories in the Star Wars Universe is upon us, despite a very troubled production cycle and a studio that can’t seem to stop rubbing its fans the wrong way. Erik and I sit down and hash out the sausage making that went into getting a young Han Solo onto the big screen, as well as the non-stop stream of rumors and “leaks” that surround the Disney franchise.
From leaked story boards for Episode 9 to the subject of the next stand-alone spin-off (Obi Wan, Bobba Fett, Yoda…Tag and Bink anyone?) there seems to be no end to the speculation about Star Wars. We also stroll back through memory lane to discuss the Extended Universe of fiction that informs a lot of these “insider plot details” and the strategy Disney has developed of playing coy with decades of canon material that was snuffed out by Lucasfilm selling of the rights.
