In this episode, Ashley and Jana talk about all the latest Star Wars news from The Rise of Skywalker and Disney+ Shows to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at both Disney parks.
First up, is Star Wars Episode 9, The Rise Of Skywalker. There is a lot to unpack about the final Star Wars movie of the original saga.
What exactly does the title mean? We have some theories. Everyone is excited to see the Knights of Ren are finally getting their big-screen debut. Emperor Palpatine is back but does that mean as a Darth Maul kind of hybrid or as a force ghost?
We can’t talk Rise of Skywalker without discussing Rey. There are a lot of theories floating around about Rey and her parentage. Is Rey a Kenobi, descendant of Qi’Ra, or is there something else going on with her? Will Rey ultimately be fighting for the Lightside or the Darkside? And if you’re a Kylo Rey Stan you might not like what we have to say about that.
Disney Plus is getting The Mandalorian as well as The Clone Wars and an Obi-Wan show starring Ewan McGregor himself. The rumors have been proven true and we couldn’t be more thrilled. More casting news includes Ming-Na Wen joining The Mandalorian and Ahsoka Lives!
Blast off to Galaxy’s Edge with us and learn what Batuu is like on both coasts. Jana shares her tips for making the most of your trip while Ashley tries not to be super jealous.
