State of the Empire Episode 30: Rogue One Review!

on December 16, 2016, 1:00am

To keep tabs on the ever-growing pop culture zeitgeist that is Star Wars, we’ve partnered up with Nerdy Show to bring you State of the Empire. Led by Art Director Cap Blackard, the series speculates on the future of the franchise and looks for news in Alderaan places. To catch up on episodes, click here.

At long last, we’ve seen it! Welcome to our Rogue One review!

Ever wondered what it would be like if there was more “wars” in Star Wars? Wonder no more. The first “Star Wars Story” or “Anthology Film” or “Spin-Off” or whatever you want to call it is out, and it sets the pace for things to come in more ways than one. We’re fresh from an opening night screening, and teeming with thoughts about this risk-taking, bold new venture for the Star Wars Universe.

Join Cap, Doug, Matt, and Rex as we offer up a brief spoiler-free review and then open the blast doors for a full-on, heated discussion of the highs and lows of Rogue One. Did this motley crew of Rebels storm the beaches of our hearts? How drastic did the reshoots remix the film, and how painfully obvious were the changes? And for you die-hard State of the Empire fans out there — how much of our rumors and speculation came true?

Intercept our compete transmission below, and keep the discussion going over on our Star Wars Spoilers Facebook group!
