This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Jordan Peele’s new film Nope and begin our Studio Ghibli Movie Series with the 1984 Hayao Miyazaki film Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind! Plus, some talk on Marvel’s announcements at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

If you’ve heard our episodes on Get Out and Us, you’ll know we are big Jordan Peele fans and his latest had us saying “yep” once again. It may not be his best effort to date, but there’s still plenty to love about Nope and we did our best to comb through why. We’re also fervent fans of the great Studio Ghibli, and we’ve been anticipating this series for quite some time now, so it’s extremely exciting to finally get it underway.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

– Notes / Discussion (58:51)

This week for our break segment, as mentioned above, we dive into the world of San Diego Comic-Con and talk about Marvel’s announcements for Phase 5 and Phase 6. We also have a good laugh about Kevin Feige’s comments about ending Phase 4, as just a few weeks ago on Episode 490 we talked about the very clear direction Marvel is going despite the discourse on social media. Well, wouldn’t you know it, he walked on stage to pronounce Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars as we all predicted. At any rate, we had a lot of fun talking about Marvel’s pipeline and what were most anticipating.
