    Is Darth Vader all Qui Gon's Fault?

    Is Darth Vader all Qui Gon's Fault?

    After years of speculation and hoping, it seems that the Star Wars: Rebels sequel we’ve been waiting for is finally coming...sort of. We’ve got the details and a little speculation thrown in. Plus Star Wars gaming is going open world. And there’s some clickbait about Qui Gon Jinn going around. Savi’s back to help us break it all down.

    And we’ve finally gotten to Act 3 of our look into The Phantom Menace. Was Qui Gon Jinn wrong to make Obi Wan promise to train Anakin?

    The Top 3 Star Wars Moments of 2020

    It’s that weird time between Christmas and New Year’s Day, where there usually isn’t any good Star Wars news to talk about. But this year is a little bit different...

    Samuel the Hutt will be excited to finally explore the details Jon Favreau shared on GMA about the Book of Boba Fett. A cryptic Instagram post by the official Star Wars account is teasing a future for Mace Windu. And the director of the next Star Wars theatrical release had a film hit theaters - and we LOVED it.

    Plus, we're looking back on what was an unexpectedly amazing year for Star Wars fans, as we share our Top 3 moments of 2020!

    6 Unsanswered Questions From The Mandalorian Season 2!

    6 Unsanswered Questions From The Mandalorian Season 2!

    It’s almost impossible to put into words what we all experienced last Friday while watching Chapter 16 of The Mandalorian. (Insert one liners about Luke Skywalker - Rogue One Vader)

    The Rescue answered some questions, but created many more. We’ll do our best to try to answer these questions, and then Sam will be given 60 seconds to scream about The Book of Boba Fett.

    It's TIME for Tatooine Sons!

    There’s both good news and bad news from the Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian. The good news is that we didn’t have a massive cliffhanger where Baby Yoda was left in the clutches of an evil Imperial war lord. The bad news is, there are still more questions than answers about Mando, Baby Yoda, Bo Katan and even the future of the show.

    1. Now that he's finished his quest to reunite Baby Yoda with the Jedi, what's next for Mando
    2. What is Bo Katan going to do now that Gideon is in the custody of the New Republic?
    3. Who’s the bad guy now?
    4. Will the cloning storyline continue to be explored?
    5. Will we see Luke Skywalker again?
    6. Is Grogu really gone?

    The Mandalorian Season 2 Finale Predictions!

    The Mandalorian Season 2 Finale Predictions!

    The Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian is coming TOMORROW! After a wild ride across the galaxy, there are many questions still lingering: will Mando reject the Creed? How’s he going to get on Moff Gideon’s ship? Is there a Jedi coming to the rescue? Will we see Thrawn? And of course, what’s going to happen to Baby Yoda (Grogu)?

    We’re going to do our best to answer these questions and more, right after we recap Chapter 15. And we’re joined by a very special guest this week (it's Samuel the Hutt's new girlfriend!)

    HOT TAKES
    Our regular show’s HOT TAKES were derailed by the crazy Star Wars announcements that happened last week. That means we haven’t had the chance to talk about Chapter 15: The Believer. Cara is breaking out a prisoner. Mayfeld poses a theological question. And Mando rejects The Way. That’s all up next on Hot Takes!

    Chapter 15 centers around Mando’s need to find out where Moff Gideon’s Imperial Cruiser is, so they can get busy rescuing Baby Yoda (Grogu). We learned at the close of Chapter 14, that Mando and Cara Dune are going to bust Mayfeld out of a New Republic Prison to make this happen. Were you a little worried about those first moments when Mando and Mayfeld are reunited?

    When Mando, Boba, Fennec and Mayfeld get to Morak, there’s a fun exchange between the crew that takes place when they discover that the best way to get into the base with the terminal Mayfeld needs to access is to hijack an Imperial Juggernaut transporting rydonium. It’s a two man job, but not everyone is capable of passing through the required ISB scans. There’s a lot of foreshadowing of what will happen at the end of the episode.

    Mayfeld and Mando have a really heavy conversation while on the Juggernaut. Mayfeld calls Mando’s devotion to “The Way” when he asks Mando if he can’t remove his helmet, or if he can’t show his face.

    We’re going to talk more about the mask/face situation in a moment, but let's look at the drink share between Mando and Mayfeld, and Valin Hess - the Imperial officer who Mayfeld served under during Operation: Cinder. For those who may not know what that is, take a second to explain it.

    It was hinted at throughout the entire episode - Mando is faced with a critical choice: follow “The Way” and fail in his mission to discover where Baby Yoda (Grogu) is, or violate his creed and show his face. What were you thinking when Mando took his bucket off?

Great podcast

Me who thought I was a Star Wars fan...
Good to find a clean podcast about the Star Wars galaxy. Always enjoy the rumours and talk, and it’s nice to hear different views on the films. Really fun and worth a listen.

Good fun!!

With such ‘disturbance’ in the Star Wars community, this pod cast is a breath of fresh air. Fun, informative and above all POSITIVE. Great to hear two generations of fans chat in a constructive way about our favourite galaxy far far away! Keep it up guys
