Rumored Kenobi Series May Feature Characters From Solo

Solo: A Star Wars Story may have tanked at the box office, but it did have its share of fans. There have been petitions asking for a sequel to be made, but no official word has come from Disney or LucasFilm.

Rumors persist that a mini-series about Obi-Wan Kenobi’s time as a hermit on Tatooine may air on Disney+, with Ewan McGregor returning to play the aging Jedi Master. Now, additional rumors have surfaced that Emilia Clarke may reprise her role as Qi’Ra, and Ray Park may appear as Darth Maul in the series.

Fans of the animated Clone Wars and Rebels series know that Maul had additional clashes with Kenobi, including one final duel on Tatooine.

Given that Tatooine is a haven for organized crime, and that Solo ended with Han whisking off to work for Jabba The Hutt, it wouldn’t be too farfetched to see Alden Ehrenreich himself show up in some capacity in the new series.

Remakes & Reboots

Seth “Zandrax” Zillmann and “Crazy Train” Jonathan Bolick return for the first full-fledged Geekville Radio episode for 2019!

Black Panther Nabs Best Picture Nomination

Historical news hit this week with Black Panther getting an Academy Award Nomination for Best Picture. It is very rare for a Geek movie, especially a superhero one, to get any consideration outside of technological achievement. While Seth and Train agree that it will likely not win the coveted prize, it is still a huge achievement for such a movie to even get nominated.

You can check out our review of Black Panther back on Episode 192.

Ghostbusters 3 Announced For 2020

Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman, has officially announced a Ghostbusters film for 2020 that will be in continuity to the two 1980s entries.

This has sparked renewed interest from fans.  A tweet from original star and co-writer Dan Aykroyd implied that he would be interested in helping out with the new project.

Leslie Jones, who stared in the 2016 reboot, did not seem as happy. She tweeted her disappointment that her movie will be ignored in this new sequel.

We did review the 2016 reboot, favorably we might add, and chime in on the idea of ignoring the reboot. And whether it is a sensible move or not.

Solo Hits Netflix

Solo: A Star Wars Story, which famously underperformed at the box office last year, made its debut on Netflix. This gave Train a chance to finally catch the film, and compare his thoughts as to why it did poorly compared to Rogue One.

Seth’s review of Solo can be found here for contrast. Our Rogue One review is also still available for reference.

Finally, Seth and Train discuss all these reboots, remakes, and sequels that have been made lately. Why is it some are great while others fall short? And why could some of these movies work then and not work now?

With all this 80s talk, it’s only fitting Train gives a 1980’s One Hit Wonder Spotify playlist.

All this and more in another fun-filled episode of Geekville Radio.

Star Wars: What Happened? Arrowverse Season Roundup, E3 Preview

It’s a giant-sized edition of Geekville Radio this week! THREE huge topics!


Seth and Crazy Train return to talk the disappointing performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story at the box office. What could be to blame for the lackluster reception? Could this be a backlash due to poor audience reception of The Last Jedi? Or merely a result of a saturated market? Or perhaps the recasting of such a beloved character is the reason? Whatever the case, Solo and The Last Jedi have very different Critic vs. Audience ratings.


The middle portion of the show is devoted to the winding down of the current Arrowverse shows on CW. John Constantine has been announced as a regular for Season 4 of Legends Of Tomorrow. On top of that, a new showrunner has been announced in Beth Schwartz. What could we expect in the coming seasons? Are there any new or returning characters on the horizon?


Finally, E3 is right around the corner. Train and Seth chime in on what they hope to hear from the major game publishers this year.
