Ryan and John break down The Mandalorian chapter 17, “The Apostate.” We discuss the recap of it all, this episode’s thematic implications for the season as a whole, the show’s incredible visuals and effects, and more.
Ryan and John are joined by longtime friend and sometimes guest Dan to discuss Bad Batch episodes “The Clone Conspiracy” and “Truth and Consequences” plus a Lucasfilm Learning educational software release from the Phantom Menace era.
We discuss the possiblity of Daisy Ridley returning to Star Wars soon, Avatar overtaking TFA at the box office, Ryan’s recent retro Star Wars game purchases, and friend of the show Dave Hackerson’s reflections on 2022 and thoughts on Bad Batch season 2.
We look ahead at the big Star Wars projects on the horizon in 2023 including The Bad Batch, Jedi: Survivor, Celebration, Ahsoka, and Skeleton Crew before breaking down the Mandalorian season three trailer immediately after its release.
We take this week off from talking Star Wars and instead focus on two other Lucasfilm projects, Willow and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. We breakdown the first two episodes of Willow, debate deepfake Indiana Jones, share our hopes for Indy 5 overall, and briefly look at the classic Willow NES and arcade games.
