Tatooine Sons is a positive, family-friendly podcast hosted by David Jesse and his two teenage sons, Sam (20) and Nathan (16). We believe that pop-culture is the mythology of this generation. There is a story written on our souls. These myths speak to that story.

Star Wars | MCU | DC | Comicbooks | LOTR | Cobra Kai

Tatooine Sons was launched in December 2017 at "Tatooine Sons: A Star Wars Podcast." In December of 2018, Nathan (one of the hosts who at the time was 12 years old) asked Rian Johnson, the writer/director of "The Last Jedi": "What is the name of the porg on the Millennium Falcon?"

Rian Johnson responded: "What do YOU think his name is?" When Nathan answered, "Maybe Terbus?" no one really believed the character would become official. But after a year and a half #MakeTerbusCanon campaign on social media, the character was officially named in the all-ages comic book series "Star Wars Adventures," issues 27-29.

Tatooine Sons is hosted by David (the dad) , Samuel (20 years old) and Nathan (16 years old). We love how pop-culture helps us see that there is something bigger in the world. We discuss Star Wars, the MCU, DC, comicbooks, the Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Cobra Kai and pretty much anything else pop-culture related through the lens of modern mythology and the "greater story" we believe this mythology points toward.

    The Matrix Resurrections Trailer Breakdown

    This Week on Tatooine Sons!

    The Matrix Resurrections trailer is FINALLY out and it's MINDBENDING! David has been waiting to really talk The Matrix with Sam and Nate for basically their whole lives. Let's just say, they weren't prepared for how deep he's gone down the rabbit whole. Check out their detailed conversation about all of the callbacks to the original three Matrix movies (The Matrix; The Matrix: Reloaded: The Matrix: Revolutions.

    We've got more "Bad News" where we have a little fun with 3 of the most "clickbait" headlines of the week including ridiculous rumors. about eliminating the sequels to The Matrix from canon, a new Ben Solo Disney+ series, and a Henry Cavill/Superman appearance in Black Adam.

    Episode 5 of "What If...?" was basically a fun little super--zombie apocalypse. What are some lessons we can learn from Peter Parker (that weren't included in his "How To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse" tutorial videos.

    BB-N8 gives us the latest in movie news as we discuss the final this week's new releases (Malignant; Show Me the Father), the massive box office take and fan response to Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and the release date change for Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

    Seven Samurai is considered by many experts on filmmaking to be one of the greatest movies ever made. Its influence on Star Wars can’t be understated. You may only THINK you’ve never seen this movie. We're willing to bet that everyone listening to this podcast already knows this story very well.

    And of course, we'll throw in some bad puns and a few "Dad Moments."

    Shang Chi Spoiler Review

    Shang Chi Spoiler Review

    This Week on Tatooine Sons!

    Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is out in theaters! We share our biggest surprises, how we think Shang Chi will impact Phase 4 of the MCU, and don't forget about those TWO End Credit Scenes!

    We introduce a new segment called "Bad News" where we have a little fun with 3 of the most "clickbait" headlines of the week in Star Wars, Marvel and DC.

    Episode 4 of "What If...?" went to a really dark place as Doctor Strange struggles to move on from the pain of losing Christine. This opens up a conversation about loss, and whether being able to go back in time to change an "Absolute Point" is a good or bad idea.

    BB-N8 gives us the latest in movie news as we discuss the final No Time to Die trailer, the delay of Top Gun: Maverick and Mission Impossible 7, and Patty Jenkins pretty hard comments regarding movies released directly to streaming.

    It's well known that George Lucas took inspiration for Star Wars from Japanese filmmaker, Akira Kurosawa. This week, we look at the connections between The Hidden Fortress as countdown the days to the release of Star Wars Vision on September 22nd.

    And of course, we'll throw in some bad puns and a few "Dad Moments."

My middle school students love this podcast!

For those tweens & teens who love all things Star Wars related, this is a great show...

Sick and Tired of You ,

The best Podcast Ever!

Let me start out saying this is the best podcast in the galaxy! Me and my mom were going on 2 airplane rides, and my mom decided to download me some podcasts. My mom was looking and she found this great, family friendly podcast where a dad and his two sons talk about Star Wars. I started listening and I was addicted immediately! The conversations between David, Sam and Nate are interesting and fun to listen to and are even better when they are joined by guests. Most of their theories are great and the rest are purposely funny! They even sometimes talk about Marvel and DC movies and shows! I recommend this podcast for any Star Wars fan!
