Mads Mikkelsen Talks Rogue One

As the council get’s set for their big Star Wars show, the first item up is a potential spoilery conversation so, yeah; spoiler alert. If you don’t want to learn about some information about the upcoming Star Wars story, mute your video – fast forward – or take a bathroom break. It has to do with the reveal of who Mad Mikkelsen is playing in Rogue One.

Pablo Hidalgo Confirms No Snoke in Rogue One

Next we have some Pablo Hidalgo news about Rogue One again. No need to worry about any spoilers here… Because it’s just Pablo Hidalgo doing what he does best – squashing ridiculous rumors. The council dive in talking about Pablo’s recent comments, dispensing the notion fans have that Snoke is in Rogue One. Which inevitably leads to speculation on if we’ll find out more about him in Episode VIII.

The new documentary Elstree 1976 takes place during the filming of the original Star Wars and goes into all the extras that were in the movie and what their thoughts were to be filming such a weird movie (at the time). Also in it, David Prowse, who played the man in the suit for Darth Vader, talked a bit about what it was like filming Vader and then finding out your voice was dubbed over by James Earl Jones.

What’s the Deal with Canon?

Here now is the segment called What’s the Deal with Canon – a discussion on everything in the world of canon that isn’t one of the movies, be it Episodes or Star Wars’ Story.

On this very special addition, the council look at Star Wars Rebels, the new book Bloodline and the latest issue of Star Wars published by Marvel. Along with a little news about our very own Darth Harloff AKA Kristian Harloff officially entering Star Wars canon as Harloff Minor in the new book Bloodline. No seriously, he’s canon now.
