With the release of the Rogue One teaser trailer last week, I had to do something special to commemorate it. So today we ponder the question: is Star Wars science fiction…or fantasy?
Whether or not Star Wars is science fiction or fantasy is one of those questions that can send you spiraling down a geeked-out debate faster than Matthew McConaughey falling into a black hole. Today we speak with a number of filmmakers, podcasters and cinephiles who all chime in.
In this episode we hear from:
- Show regulars (and fellow Star Wars geek) JD and his geek-tolerant wife Yolanda Cochran
- Movie and entertainment journalist Clarke Wolfe (frequent Collider Movie Talk co-host)
- Fellow Podcastica Network podcaster Remi Lavictoire of the Sci-Fi Movie Podcast
