It is a dark time for fandom. Six short months ago, many nerds were shocked by purchase of Luasfilm by Disney. This news gave some a sense of renewed hope for the Star Wars franchise. Others have cried out in terror, based on recent closures and cancelations of Lucasfilm properties.

Now, in a secret base, Gary Mitchel has rounded up expert nerds Jessa Phillips, Shaun Rosado, Michael Falkner, and Tegan Hendrickson to discuss all the post-purchase events, put them in perspective, and then once more wildly speculate on where they think Star Wars can or should go from here.

No this is not a late April Fool's joke, this is really our look at the movies coming out in March 2013.  Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel gather Tegan Hendrickson and Michael Falkner to discuss what lies at the end of Hollywood's movie rainbow.  Gary even has a geek meltdown over the title of a film.  It's goodness that is worth listening too.
