Breaking Down All the Latest News from STAR WARS

For events that happened a long time ago, there sure is a lot of news coming out of the galaxy far, far away these days. So we had a full Star Wars rundown on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, along with rumors of a new Super Mario film, and a strange, unsettling spoiler from the new animated Pokémon movie.

Mothership‘s Hector Navarro filled in as host today, and he was joined by Bizarre States’ Andrew Bowser, Geek and Sundry‘s Amy Vorpahl, and Nerdist News writer Joan Ford. They started with the very latest from Star Wars Battlefront II. If you thought yesterday’s conversation about the game’s leveling system was intense, that has nothing on Han Solo’s beard from the game. Do we like this look, or is this the game’s biggest problem yet?

What about Rey’s red cloak in the new IMAX poster for The Last Jedi? Does this mean she’s going to the Dark Side? And are we excited by the possibility of getting a trilogy-specific, customizable Star Wars ride from Disneyland in the future? What else do you hope to see when Star Wars land opens?

There have also been reports that Illumination Entertainment is in talks with Nintendo to bring Super Mario back to the big screen. Does this sound like a winning team to produce the elusive great game-based movie? And how many of us have ever even seen the much-maligned live-action version from 1993?

Finally, there’s a pretty big, pretty startling spoiler from the new animated Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! Did it destroy our childhood? Will we ever recover from this unthinkable development?

Remember Nerdist News Talks Back airs live at 1:00 p.m. PT on our YouTube and Alpha channels every weekday. You can be a part of the conversation with us when you tune in live. It’s the place to be for the latest Star Wars news, as well as a great place to deal with unsettling changes to Pikachu.

Even if you missed today’s show we still want to hear from you about the latest pop culture news, so talk back to us in the comments below with your thoughts.
