Weesa back! There’s a trailer for The Mandalorian! (meh) A “Special Look” at The Rise of Skywalker (dope) and some other news and surprises from D23 to discuss. Plus, a SPOILER discussion at the end of the pod on TRoS, you’ve been warned!
The guys check in for some of the recent news in Star Wars. The Game of Thrones show runners are officially making the next Star Wars movie, coming in 2022. Laeta Kalogridis may be working on a Knights of the Old Republic screenplay, which may or not be related to Benioff and Weiss’s movie. There’s a new Vanity Fair out with some excellent photos from The Rise of Skywalker. Reylo intensifies. You know the drill.
We’re back! We’ve finally gotten a look at Episode IX, courtesy of the teaser trailer and panel at Star Wars: Celebration. James and Marco discuss the awkward questions from Colbert, hints at the plot from JJ and the rest of the sexy cast, and then go shot by shot through the trailer itself. Just who are these weird furry-hands guys re-making Kylo’s helmet?? We’re hyped as hell for The Rise of Skywalker.
The blood moon rises, and new Star Wars news is released. Marco and Benji check in to talk about some of the San Diego Comic-Con announcements before getting to the meat of the news: the casting and production announcements for Star Wars: Episode IX. Who will Richard E. Grant and Naomi Ackie play? And Keri Russell? What will Rey’s character arc be? Will this really be the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga? Our thoughts within.
We’re back! After a long hiatus (check us out on our other podcast Headcanon), Marco and Benji have returned to discuss the state of Star Wars and some of its awful fans.

We’re back, because there is a new trailer for The Last Jedi! At long last, we get a real hint as to what this movie might be about, and some cool new shots and lines of dialog. Also discussed: the new poster, Leia: Princess of Alderaan, and the Star Wars version of jazz.
Force Friday has come and gone, and Episode IX has lost its director! Marco and Benji return to celebrate the departure of Colin Trevorrow from Star Wars, and discuss various options for who could replace him. Also, Benji has crazy plans for what they could do with the future of the Saga. Marco thinks Benji has been reading too many Reylo threads.

There’s a new teaser trailer and poster for The Last Jedi, which means Benji and Marco are back to break them down. Also discussed, the Star Wars Celebration panel, Rose (Roze?), Forcebacks, BB-8, and what it means for the Jedi to end.
We have a title for Episode VIII, so it is a must that Marco and Benji return to discuss it. We dig it. We dig the implication. We don’t dig the stupid Grey Jedi theories. Guys, Rogue One marketing is finally over, and it’s time to get hype for The Last Jedi.

Benji and Marco return to their lesser-known Star Wars podcast to talk about the marketing lead-up to Rogue One. New trailers, new posters, new LEGO sets: we hit it all. Also, Carrie Fisher’s on-set affair and casting for Young Han Solo’s Young Lando. Towards the end, the guys pine for any news all about Episode VIII.
There’s a new Rogue One trailer out, so that means it’s time for another round of Benji arguing against the narrative validity of prequel movies. Marco and he discuss the new Rogue One trailer, along with the Celebration Sizzle Reel, happenings on Star Wars: Rebels with Thrawn, new The Force Awakens commentary, and much more. Also, RIP Kenny Baker :(
