Nothing But Star Wars!
A never-ending celebration of our favorite galaxy far, far away

State of the Empire Episode 35: Jedi Mind Tricks

on June 30, 2017, 10:02am

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.

In the era of fake news, no quadrant of the galaxy is safe from mind tricks. Yes, State of the Empire is your wacky, zany source for absurd rumors, but if we smell bantha poodoo, you’d better believe we’re gonna call it out so you don’t step in it. So forget all you know… or think you know about the Han Solo film and Lord and Miller’s firing. Let Cap, Doug and Matt set you straight.

In addition to tackling the new murmurs coming from the smouldering crater of the Han Solo implosion, we’ve got a new cache of Episode VIII action figure code names with some baffling implications, awe-inspiring and disconcerting plans from Disney’s upcoming Star Wars attractions, musings on the forthcoming Indiana Jones film, upcoming comics, and a shocking amount of character and story details for the untitled Star Wars adventure project from Visceral Games.
