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.
Ryan and John break down Obi-Wan Kenobi parts 4 and 5 in anticipation of the upcoming series finale. We look at revelations regarding Reva’s past, how processing trauma is at the heart of the show, the thematic through line of protecting children/innocents, potential resolutions to Reva’s story, and much more.
Ryan and John catch up on the first three chapters of Obi-Wan Kenobi after returning home from Celebration. We discuss the important players, plot points, and surprises before closing the show by gushing over *that* confrontation at the close of part 3.
This week’s episode is news heavy again as we discuss Deborah Chow directing the Obi-Wan show, the TROS issue of Empire Magazine, and the (official this time) Triple Force Friday reveals and livestream. We also talk a little bit about Babu Frick, but somehow we forgot to bring up the week’s biggest story: Kevin Fiege producing a future Star Wars film. Whoops.
