(Not So) Live from Asteroid G

We're talking Star WarsThe modern blockbuster: it's a concept so commonplace now we don't even think about the fact that before the end of the 1970s, this kind of movie -- huge spectacles, big action, massive budgets -- wasn't really made. That all changed, though, with Star Wars, a series of films that were big on spectacle (and even bigger on profits). A hero's journey set against a sci-fi backdrop, nothing like this series had ever really been done before, and then Hollywood was never the same. in this episode of (Not So) Live from Asteroid G. We start by noting that Andor is really good, but then we turn to s discussion of the movies and show, touching upon what worked (Obi-Wan), what didn't (The Book of Boba Fett) and how Disney really needs to figure out their strategy moving forward.
