Ep. 141: Movie Making Is a Complicated Profession, Don’t You Agree?

A new trailer for The Mandalorian comes out of nowhere on the day we record?!? Wow! Oh, and some news drops while we're recording. Finally! Here's what happens:

  • Kids, am I right?
  • Who Got What? is a mixed bag of triumph and pain.
  • So, how about the trailer for The Mandalorian? Yep, it's cool.
  • EW (and some other news outlets) say there's a huge spoiler for the Star Wars universe in the first episode of The Mandalorian. Does the word spoiler even mean anything anymore?
  • Did you miss anything in the trailer for The Rise of Skywalker? We sure did.
  • Benioff and Weiss are not doing their Star Wars movie(s). They're too busy, apparently. Is there more to it?
  • Season 2 episode 4 of Star Wars Resistance, Hunt on Celsor 3, is a hoot. Who's hungry?

Ep. 140: Taking One Last Look - The Final Trailer

We have a new trailer for The Rise of Skywalker. What else matters? Here's what happens:

  • Tickets? We got 'em.
  • Who Got What? really makes us think that at least one of us might have a problem.
  • THAT TRAILER, am I right? What does it all mean? What did we miss? Why didn't we all watch it for our first time all together?
  • What's up with the Cassian series?
  • What's the deal with the Mandalorian episode schedule?
  • The latest episode of Star Wars Resistance, Live Fire, has some interesting moments. Remember that deleted scene from Solo? And man, the First Order are psychos.
  • We take a total sideline on what education methodology should be like in this day and age. I know, I know.

Ep. 139: Pulling the Plug

Still waiting on a trailer, a new episode of Resistance, and birthday aftermath! Here's what happens:

  • This again?
  • Who Got What? includes some Triple Force Friday stragglers.
  • Is Rian Johnson still doing the thing?
  • Freddie Prinze, Jr. had some things to say. Some loud, expletive-laden things.
  • Is there something going on at Lucasfilm? Is Kathleen Kennedy considering stepping down?
  • The second episode of the new season of Star Wars Resistance is really good. A Quick Salvage Run has some tense moments, some solid action, and a couple of dark overtones. Get it!
  • Mysterious mystery box mysteries.

Ep. 137: B-b-b-b-bad Motivators

The countdown to Triple Force Friday nears its end, Empire magazine's early release to subscribers hits the internet, and more! Here's what happens:

  • Dallas and Luke clean up in Who Got What?
  • Star Wars gives us a rundown of what to expect for Triple Force Friday, and Yakface dropped the unofficial checklist that's a Christmas dream list. It's gonna be good!
  • Kevin Feige is going to work on a Star Wars project!
  • Empire magazine's The Rise of Skywalker issue hits subscribers early, and they shared it with the world. There's some great stuff in there.
  • We got an excerpt from Resistance Reborn, an upcoming novel that's part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker line. Neat!
  • Robbo gives us the Boba Fett pitch we've all been waiting for.

Ep. 136: Learning to Let Go

Triple Force Friday is almost here, Disney+ preorders go live, and Bob Iger wrote a book. Here's what happens:

  • Luke makes Dallas's and Eric's day in Who Got What?
  • We're finally getting a good idea of the stuff coming on Triple Force Friday, mostly because stores keep putting the merchandise out before you can actually buy it.
  • Hasbro, this might be a dud.
  • Funko is doing some solid work.
  • There's a Luke Skywalker convention exclusive that we can't get in the US. It's neat. Very neat.
  • Disney+ presale goes live for the general public.
  • What now, Twitter?
  • Bob Iger give the business.
