Episode #93: Long-time friend of the show CHRIS EVANS (yes THAT Chris Evans, not the other guy) joins the show as we plunge deep into the heart of Star Wars news and other stuff including a big update on Disney+, Fox, Warner Brothers and DUNE, GL’s not-so-tenuous financial position, as well as the anniversary of the first summer blockbuster JAWS and Ian Shaw’s spot on impersonation of his father, Robert. PLUS you won’t want to miss our discussion on the PINK SHORTS GUY (a member of the 501st???) and the original TESB trailer featuring RMQ’s amazing concept art.
