Dan relates his experience of seeing The Last Jedi for the third time, in D-BOX seats no less. Kenton compiles a list of early predictions about what’s to come in the next Saga film, based on what we saw in Episode 8.
Star Wars Nerds
Kenton & Dan have seen The Last Jedi, twice! They welcome regular contributor Chris Schiffmann back to the podcast to discuss all things Luke, Leia,Rey, Poe, Finn, Rose, Kylo, Hux and Snoke. And Porgs. They definitely talk about Porgs.
This episode is very spoiler-heavy, so if you haven’t seen The Last Jedi yet, stay away until you do! It’s okay, we’ll wait.
We get to the news that broke less than an hour after last week’s podcast recording: RIAN JOHNSON IS DIRECTING THE NEXT STAR WARS TRILOGY! Needless to say we’re pretty excited. Also, Dan rants about the Battlefront II controversy even though he does not have the means to play it. Kenton is prepared to play the long game on this one: wait six months and it’ll all be sorted out (and free!)
Kenton & Dan welcome comic creator Nicholas Burns to the podcast to talk about seeing Star Wars for the first time in a Minneapolis theatre in May 1977. They also discuss Luke’s possible backstory for the 30-year gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
Kenton & Dan talk about the “directing the Last Jedi” featurette released by Lucasfilm, possible (but not really) spoilers revealed by both the film’s international poster AND Adam Driver, and Kenton can’t wait to get his hands on the Black Series Porg figure.
