LEAGUECAST #158 – ROGUE ONE Spoiler Review & Christmas Special


Pour yourself some egg nog, stoke the fireplace, put on  your coziest Christmas sweater, light up the Christmas tree, and settle in for some Holiday cheer in the mighty League manner on the annual Leaguecast Christmas Special! This year Jeff, Shawn, and Adam unwrap the biggest and best gift they could possibly ask for this Christmas – a new Star Wars movie from Disney and Lucasfilm! It’s a full on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story spoilercast, as the guys review the film and discuss their favorite characters and action scenes, the influences on the film, the score by Michael Giacchino, the controversial CGI characters, the effects the extensive reshoots may have had on the film, the scenes in the trailers that didn’t make it into the final cut of the film, the long-awaited return of a scary and menacing Darth Vader, the easter eggs and cameos, the epic third act battle, and so much more!

All that, plus a special Christmas music and movie conversation on the the annual call to Announcer Bob, where Jeff unleashes the horror of “What Can You Get A Wookiee For Christmas (When He Already Owns A Comb)” from “Christmas In The Stars,” the Star Wars Christmas album, upon the rest of the League and the listening audience.

Jeff Carter

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
