Ep. 22: All Things Star Wars

For this, the first episode of Season 3 of The Chauncey DeVega Show, I decided to reach back to the first guest on the first episode of the podcast series from almost two years ago. Bill the Lizard is my heterosexual life partner (to quote Kevin Smith). He is also a great friend of the site and possesses a masterful intelligence and knowledge of all things Star WarsIn our first conversation for Season One, Bill and I discussed the (then) new announcement that JJ Abrams would be making Star Wars Episode VII, the challenges of that project, the Prequels, and the rebooting of the Expanded Universe. In our newest conversation we discussed what is known aboutStar Wars Episode VII (which now has a title "The Force Awakens"), to be "spoiler free" or not, what The Force Awakensmust do in order to be a compelling and exciting Star Warsmovie, space opera and Guardians of the Galaxy, why the newGodzilla movie is a hellish monstrosity of the first order, and if a person's love of the character Groot should be a barometer for the goodness of their soul. Bill the Lizard and I also played a game of "yeah or nay" regarding what characters from the Original Trilogy and Expanded Universe should make an appearance in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
