Star Wars: The Last Jedi is rapidly approaching, so to celebrate, the League is taking a look back at the previous chapter in the Disney era of the saga – Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Join Jeff, Adam, Shawn, and The Shmozz, as they re-watch JJ Abrams directorial debut on the beloved franchise and deliver their verdict on how it holds up and its place in the Star Wars pantheon. Everything from the historical context of the Lucasfilm sale to Disney, to the somewhat chaotic production schedule, to the new characters, to the comparisons to Episode IV: A New Hope, to the Rey “Mary Sue” controversy, to the shock of Han Solo’s death, is discussed and debated in this Star Wars special edition of the LeagueCast! All this, plus news headlines, the box office draws with the Shmozz, and the usual banter and tangents in the mighty League manner!

About Author

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.
