Can sequels ever really top the original? The Empire Strikes Back did it, but in a summer filled with pretty much only sequels - does every film need a follow-up? Plus - Solo reactions! And speaking of Star Wars, we're looking at a new ranking for the John Williams scores. Then the Spawn movie makes a big leap forward with some new casting news. Also, is Andrew Lincoln really leaving The Walking Dead? What will the show do? And finally - in honor of the latest Pokemon news, we'll be testing our panel's knowledge of all thing pocket-monster. All this and more on today's Nerdist News: What The Friday!
