The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 132: Don’t You Wish Your Girlfriend Was Dark Like Rey

August 28, 2019

D23 does not disappoint! New footage from The Rise of Skywalker, an official trailer for The Mandalorian, and there's Disney+ news too! Here's what happens:

  • It turns out that Etsy is where it's at in this weeks' Who Got What? segment.
  • So, D23 happened. Did you hear about it? How about a new poster for The Rise of Skywalker? Oh, and how about some new footage from it?
  • Keri Russel talks about Zorri Bliss and her sexy-time relationship with Poe Dameron.
  • We finally get an official trailer for The Mandalorian. The scene with IG-11 is stunning on its own. The rest is great too!
  • The Disney+ app looks good. Hopefully it runs well.
  • LFL officially confirms that Ewan McGregor is coming back as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a Disney+ series!
