Friend of the show Mike Harris joins Ryan and John to discuss our favorite qualities, characters, lines, and more from The Empire Strikes Back in celebration of its 40th anniversary before closing the show by considering its legacy and impact on Star Wars overall.
Ryan and John finally find the opportunity to discuss the final episode of Clone Wars as well as the first three episodes of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian. We take a look at our favorite moments from both (including a bit of a detour in response to Dave Filoni’s monologue re: the importance of the conclusions of TPM and RotJ) before closing the show with even more Mandalorian season two casting rumors.
This episode features a look at the many Star Wars announcements and updates that happened this past week in celebration of Star Wars Day. We devote the most time to looking at the rumor of Temura Morrison returning to Star Wars and the question of whether or not Lucasfilm is creating a troubling trend of reviving once dead characters, but also tackle the Taika Waititi and Leslye Headland announcements as well as video game, book, and Mandalorian season two news.
Ryan and John celebrate fabled holiday Star Wars Day Eve by catching up on a few updates on Dr. Aphra, Cassian Andor, and a new show for Disney Plus before discussing the first three episodes of The Siege of Mandalore arc of The Clone Wars.
