The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 76: The All-Valley Jedi Tournament

August 1, 2018

We had some big announcements about the cast for Episode IX! What does all of this mean? Here's what happens:

  • Who Got What? is a roller coaster ride going from the good to the bad to the ugly.
  • We got an official announcement from about the cast for Episode IX. It also refers to the movie as the final installment of the Skywalker saga. Hmmm...
  • The role of Leia will be played by Carrie Fisher, using unused footage shot during the filming of The Force Awakens.
  • Is Thrawn going to be in IX?
  • Eric's daughter steals the show in That's Metal this week.
  • Dallas introduces a new segment that's tentatively being called Dallas' Whatever Clone Wars Thing. By tentatively we mean that we're keeping it no matter what he says.
  • Listener emails and voicemails, with some first-time contributors!
  • You're the best around.
