It wouldn’t be an episode of the Red 7 Movie Cast podcast if Hemant didn’t talk about some big Star Wars news. In Episode 29 he talks about the recent news that LucasFilm and Disney have put a hold on all upcoming anthology films, including the recently announced Boba Fett film and the much rumoured Obi Wan Kenobi film. He talks about the implications of this news, LucasFilm’s response to the story, as well as a possible Darth Vader film being developed.
If you remember from last episode, Hemant mentioned a new YouTube Premium original series called Impulse based on a series of books by Steven Gould that is set in the Jumper universe. Yes, Jumper, that 2008 film starring Hayden Christensen which was directed by Doug Liman. So Hemant watched all ten episodes of Season 1 this week and shares his feeling about the show.
And then it’s onto a review of Pacific Rim: Uprising, the new film by Steven S. DeKnight starring John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, and Cailee Spaeny. Does this one live up to the bar set by Guillermo del Toro and the first film in the series? Take a listen to find out.
