In the first episode of THE GEEK DIRECTIVE, we discuss whether or not Princess Leia should become an official Disney Princess.  We'll also discuss the new Disney Streaming Box and the prospects for a Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.

The Thor: Ragnarok movie synopsis has been released, and we'll react to the revelation of a Hulk/Thor showdown!  Speaking of movies...what about this trend where scenes shown in a trailer don't make it to the final film?  We'll talk about Garreth Edwards explanation for this happening in Rogue One.  We cheer for the man that spent four years building a movie theater in his back yard, and think about how Robin Williams would've played Hagrid.

GANNIN tests our fandom with two game segments called Trigger Words and It's All Connected.
