On this weeks show, Barb, Devin, Eve and Jeremy sit down and chat the latest and greatest goings-on in the Star Wars news pool! From word that Mace Windu is the most powerful Jedi (?!) to whether or not the tone has changed in Star Wars films through the years and…more Episode IX title speculation?? We once again continue our series into pivotal characters and their dialogue this week, taking a closer look at Kylo Ren!
On this weeks episode, Barb, Carl, Devin and Eve sit down and discuss the latest and greatest going on in the Star Wars news circuit! From ALL the new novels hitting shelves later this year to a more serious, consistent “Star Warsy” tone coming with the Mandalorian, to Vader potentially knowing Luke was more powerful than he was?! We continue out mini-series, again, this week with the best and most impacting lines from none other than Jyn Erso herself.
The past two months, I kind of stepped away from Star Wars...no one really knew that until now. This is unusual for me because December is the"anniversary"of when I fell in love with Star Wars, but life happened and I did not have that desire to get excited about this fandom. I did manage to film a video for a future article. I just have to edit it. I also bought a Star Wars book that I plan to review. I can definitely say that it is my favorite Star Wars book, ever…just saying.

As Star Wars fans, many of us want diversity behind the camera. Every time a new director is named we ask, “When will a non-white and/or non-male be tapped to direct a Star Wars movie?” (Unfortunately, this eliminates me from consideration, and I know I must be near the top of the list. Alas, I am willing to step aside for the sake of progress.). We are passive because we have no power to actually choose the people to fill these positions.
When Solo released in May 2018, I had pretty low expectations: I wanted a fun summer movie that would be a pleasant break from the fractious fandom of The Last Jedi. I didn’t expect to find a new favorite Star Wars (it’s just SO FUN) and a newfound appreciation for Han as a character and the sequel trilogy.
Since the release of The Last Jedi in December of 2017, we, as Star Wars fans, have experienced a variety of reactions to the direction that Rian Johnson, and Disney as a whole, has taken the Star Wars saga. I, for one, loved TLJ and feel like it was a refreshing new story line that brought a new light to the Star Wars galaxy, and I can’t wait to see how Abrams concludes the Skywalker saga.
