In the News:

In Our Feature Presentation, filmmaker and Star Wars fanatic Kyle Newman (Fanboys, Barely Lethal) joins us to talk about the big news: Obi-Wan Kenobi Is Getting a ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off with A Surprising Director

  • Are we excited about this Star Wars anthology movie?
  • Thoughts on director Stephen Daldry 
  • When could this take place? What could it be about? 
  • Are there any Obi-wan stories, canon or non canon we’d like to see?

In The Mailbag: Marc Godsiff from the UK asks “Really excellent podcast by the way!I’m wondering if you guys have specific ideas about the plot of The Last Jedi? Who is Snoke, why is Luke on Ahch-To, who are Rey’s parents etc? Over on Talk Star Wars we speculate about these things and I’m always keen to hear the thoughts of other Star Wars fans. Once again, great podcast and thank you for the hard work that goes into producing it!”
