We’re inaugurating the new era of the Round Table with a doozy — the firing (with less than three weeks left of shooting!) of directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller off the as-yet-untitled Young Han Solo film. Why were they fired? What does this mean for the future of the Star Wars franchise, and specifically, the spin-off anthology films? And why was fan reaction to this news so toxic (spoiler: misogyny). Joining Matthew for this discussion and analysis are Star Wars experts and long-time friends of the pod Nanci & Brian, from Tosche Station. Don’t miss it!
