The Elven Padawan: From Erebor to Echo Base – #15 – Solo: A Star Wars Story

 

 

Ok, let’s be honest – “Squee Session” would probably be a much better name than “Review” for what happens in this episode.

Shay is thrilled to welcome TEP blogger Audrey to the podcast!! Together the two girls talk about the newest installment in the Star Wars movie series, SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY. They keep their fangirling spoiler-free for the first 6 minutes, but after that, the floodgates are open, and they don’t hold back!
Was there anyone truly “good” or “bad” in this film?
Will we be seeing a sequel or follow-up to SOLO?
What did **** really want with Qi’ra??
And that one character who we all now love!!
We also discuss some of the cool references and easter eggs hidden throughout this movie and do our best to answer a listener question about crossovers from other parts of the Star Wars universe.

Thanks so much to Johnamarie Macias from The Wookiee Gunner for sending in her questions for us to discuss on the show!!

But I realized that even if I couldn’t name all of Fëanor’s sons, I could still enjoy the book, and learning the history that came before the tales of Bilbo and Frodo. In this post, I’m going to give some of my thoughts on it and give some introductions to the main characters.

LIGHTPORTER by C. B. Cook!! Blog Tour + Review!

LIGHTPORTER, IDIA BOOK #2, IS OUT TODAY!!!

Now I know I’ve been doing a lot of not-Star Wars and not-Tolkien things on this blog lately, even though the reason this site exists is to share the love of those two fandoms with the world. But I do like to sometimes take a light break from Star Wars and Tolkien in related stories, and the IDIA books are definitely worth it. Besides, C. B. Cook, the author of this superhero series, is a huge fangirl, so it totally counts!!
