Show Notes:

Kevin, Chris, Dan, and John get together to discuss Luke Skywalker’s future in The Last Jedi and beyond. We consider a compelling Dave Filoni quote from the Rebels season four panel from Star Wars Celebration Orlando (courtesy of the fantastic Steele Wars podcast) as well as an excerpt from Brian Jay Jones’s George Lucas: A Life book for some support while exploring just who Luke could and should be in the sequel trilogy. Will he truly end the Jedi order? Is there any possibility of a dark side turn? Join us as we dig into anticipating the return of Star Wars’s greatest hero!

Show Notes:

The title for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi was revealed today and we couldn’t wait to share our thoughts here on The Blockade Runner. We wanted to record an episode as soon as possible discussing the news, so rather than wait until we could all record together, John spoke to Kevin, Ryan, Dan, and Chris individually. Each of us had something a bit different to share and speculate on regarding Episode VIII‘s new title, but we’re all so, so excited to learn more about the film. We’d love to hear what you think, so send us an email or use of the social media links in the show notes below to reach out!

*Disclaimer* Sound quality varies a bit in this one, but it’s totally listenable; we just rushed to get this episode out and weren’t always able to record under ideal conditions. We think our excitement makes up for it!
