Episode 105 – Technical Difficulties

What kind of episode do we record after spending forty-five minutes trying to get our cameras to work and failing? Apparently a fairly normal one, albeit an audio only installment. In this, we discuss the Good Omens casting news, the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, and Netflix’s atrocious Death Note adaptation. Then we hit the con scene, where we talk about the Avalon Expo organizer disappearing mid-con and how much fun we had at Geek.kon last weekend.

And yes, we address the Nazi cosplayer and a bunch of other stuff.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars Spin-Off Film Actually in Development

Ever since Lucasfilm and Disney announced that they would be doing spinoff movies set in the Star Wars universe, fans have been clamoring for an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. I mean, Ewan McGregor keeps telling people he’s game for it — and he’s the one thing every Star Wars fan seems to agree was actually good about the Prequel trilogy. But while rumors flew a bunch back in, like, twenty-fourteen the idea didn’t seem to be going anywhere.

Well, that’s no longer the case.

THR is reporting that an Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff is definitely in the works now. There’s no script yet, but director Stephen Daldry is currently in talks with the studio to take on the project. Curiously McGregor hasn’t signed on to the film yet, but it’s almost a guarantee that the fans would revolt if he didn’t play the part.

All of this is early on, and we still don’t have a formal announcement from the studio. But while this could all still fall apart, it’s good to know that the studio is listening to what the fans have been clamoring for.

One Obi-Wan Kenobi Film is Not Enough, I Must Have Three!

I know that I shouldn’t use old inside jokes none of our readers will get as headlines, but I couldn’t resist this particular one as the most interesting rumor coming out of Star Wars-ville is that instead of just one Obi-Wan Kenobi film, they want to make three.

And these wouldn’t be a trilogy — each film would stand completely on its own. Three stand alone Obi-Wan Kenobi films.

Which I wouldn’t mind at all.

We’re still in the “crazy-ass rumor” phase of this particular piece of news, but since Ewan McGregor (the lone bright spot of the prequels) loves playing Kenobi so much, it’s not completely unbelievable.

Time will tell.

Episode 30 – Prophet of Doom

On this episode of Nerd & Tie, we webcast to a live audience for the first time! We also talked about Supergirl coming to CBS, a Teen Titans TV show on TNT, Obi-Wan Kenobi getting his own flick, Deadpool FINALLY getting his own movie, Agent Carter showing up in Agents of SHIELD, Chris Evan’s future as Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy appearing in Avengers 3, and a Firefly film that amazingly doesn’t suck.

Seriously, you should watch it.

It’s pretty awesome.

Also we talk about the “Ender’s Game” movie from a while back at the beginning. Because Trae made the mistake of watching it.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Film a Possibility

We’ve reported on some crazy Star Wars rumors in the past, but happily we’ve finally found a believable one. Part of the current plan for the franchise is to release “Spin off” films between “Proper Episodes.” Well, the current rumor du jour is that one of these spin off films will be one featuring a young Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The character is massively popular, and Ewan McGregor seems game, so I’m going to mark this one in the “credible” column. Nothing’s been announced officially though, so take this with the prerequisite grain of salt.

It seems like it would be awesome though.
