Talkin’ GAME OF THRONES, GUARDIANS Vol. 2, Leia, DUNKIRK, and More!

Happy Friday, nerds! Hope the ol’ Revenge of the Fifth isn’t rendering you too incapacitated. Because oh, what a time to be alive: there’s just so much news dropping! We’ve got a heaping helping of army boys on a beach (a.k.a. a new Dunkirk trailer), a veritable smorgasbord of potential Game of Thrones spin-offs, and a general update about Leia Organa in the forthcoming Star Wars sequels. And with all these Nerdist cooks in the kitchen, there’s bound to be a buncha hot takes on the lot of it. Are you ready for a little bit of Nerdist News Talks Back?

Join us as Jessica Chobot as she walks us through all the news you wanna hear on this first Friday in May, alongside Alicia Lutes, Kyle Anderson and…hey…wait a second—does anything seem, well, weird to y’all about today’s Talks Back?

That’s right, we’ve got FOUR potential spin-offs for the future (or past) of Westeros (though we’ve got 9 we’d totally like to see) in the works and HBO ain’t afraid of any of ’em. But will any of them end up on air? And now that Carrie Fisher is officially out of Episode IX, how do we think they’ll end her story? And don’t even get us started on the joy that was The Baby Groot Show, a.k.a. Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.

So, with FOUR potential Game of Thrones spin-offs in the works, a so-adorable-it-hurts sequel in theaters right now, and the fate of Episode IX back in the kitchen after Fisher’s passing, there’s heaps to discuss and dissect. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
