Episode Info:

T'was a few days before Star Wars,

And through the 'net,

Every fanboy was stirring,

Especially Chris and Pat.


Welcome back to the only Star Wars podcast with permission to blow stuff up. Star Wars history will be made this week with the release of Episode VIII, "The Last Jedi." As a deep breath before the storm, Chris and Patrick are here to discuss their expectations for this momentous film.


It's been two years since The Force Awakens left us hanging, and a year since Carrie Fisher's tragic passing, and these two events form the core of our expectations for Episode VIII. How will Carrie's final film address her loss, and the future of Leia? What answers will we get for Episode VII's riddles?


Along the way, we discuss:

  • our current thoughts on Rey's parentage
  • what role Han, Leia, and Luke might play in Rey's past
  • how Phasma might redeem herself to casual fans
  • what steps Kylo Ren might take along his villainous path
  • what impact events from Canon stories, like Battlefront 2, will have

... and much more! Have fun at the theatres this weekend, and check back soon for our first impressions of the film! And in the meantime, be careful, for the internet is dark and full of spoilers.
