It was a big week in Star Wars with the release of “Grogu and the Dust Bunnies,” Andor episode 10 “One Way Out,” The Acolyte beginning filming, and rumors of new Star Wars movies both in development and being canceled. We discuss all of it in an uncharacteristically reasonably-lengthed episode.
The first half of this episode features our look at Andor episode nine, “Nobody’s Listening.” We spend the remainder of the show discussing the rumored Damon Lindeloff Star Wars movie, how and why Lucasfilm announces (and then sometimes cancels) Star Wars projects, and what we’d like to see from the movie if/when it happens.
This episode features our discussion of Andor episodes 7 and 8, an insightful message from our friend Dave Hackerson about Andor’s commentary on real world colonialism, and our thoughts on Tales of the Jedi.
Ryan and John discuss the first three episodes of Andor including our overall impressions (we love it), the incredible cast of characters, and why a different flavor of Star Wars is so welcome for this specific show.
Rogue One returning to IMAX theaters acts as a catalyst for Ryan and John to reassess the movie. We then discuss the Andor footage shown at those IMAX screenings before discussing Rian Johnson’s recent comments on returning to Star Wars and a few quick thoughts on Shadow of the Sith.
Ryan and John return after a week off to discuss Taika Star Wars and Andor news plus share some super insightful comments on Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Japanese translation from friend of the show Dave Hackerson.
