Here be dragons. And Hamilton references. And Supernatural chat. Yes, Chris Hewitt is away for this week’s Empire Podcast, and geek queen Helen O’Hara is in charge in the podbooth.

It’s a top crop of guests this week, with Alden Ehrenreich talking to James Dyer and Nick de Semlyen about taking on the role of the galaxy’s greatest scoundrel, controlling the Millennium Falcon, talking to Wookiees, and his history with the Winchester brothers. Then Michael Cera (call him George Michael) and Alia Shawkat (call her Maeby) popped by the studio to talk Arrested Development Season 5, disguises, that Twin Peaks cameo, and a secret celebrity tennis club.

Back in the main studio, Helen is joined by James and Ben to talk this week’s movie news — from John Wick 3’s latest cast additions (Derek from The Good Place!), to Damon Lindelof’s biblical Watchmen statement — and review The Breadwinner, Edie, and some Star Wars story featuring a classic character in a solo adventure. No idea what that one’s called though. Listen to the episode on Souncloud, on Planet Radio, or on your podcast app of choice!
