Episode 10 :: Star Wars Rebels Sparks the Rebellion

State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.
The big news this month is Star Wars Rebels has premiered – launching the new official cannon of Star Wars! As of this recording we’ve seen the hour-long debut, “Spark of Rebellion” as well as the first regular episode “Droids in Distress”. As faithful followers of the show know, even with the talented Greg Weisman on board, we weren’t getting our hopes up. We’ve been burnt too many times before… and had our limbs cut off, and kicked into lava… Join Cap, Doug, and Matt for a look at the first two episodes of Rebels and learn how this show as surprised us. There’s cameos, Easter eggs, compelling characters, and a body count to boot!

We also discuss the four forthcoming Star Wars comics from Marvel, the shocking new arcade game: Star Wars Battle Pod, the possibility of an Obi-Wan film series, rumors from Episode VII galore, read an excerpt from the Willow Sourcebook, AND discuss our recently-launched Ghostbusters Roleplaying Hub.
