State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”. Star Wars Celebration 2016... The annual expo for all things far, far away and some looming sooner than seem possible. This year, the shadow of the Death Star descended on London as hype for Rogue One gave way to looks behind the scenes, surprise slip-ups, and enough cryptic info to ensure that this debut "Star Wars Story" is going to have us guessing right up until opening night. Meanwhile, Star Wars Rebels brought the heat by reintroducing an Expanded Universe favorite: Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Join Cap, Doug, and Matt as they revel in the revelations from the Rebels season 3 trailer, reminisce on the mid-90s-era Star Wars that both the latest film and tv series are now strongly hearkening to, and consider the futures and fates of the Rebellion in the time before A New Hope. Though the era of the Original Trilogy took most of the spotlight, there's also plenty to share and read into about Episode VIII, forthcoming video games, novels, comics, and even an official announcement about young Han Solo.
