#169: Drink Upon It

 

Fode showed up without chicken wings wtf

Don't forget to check out our Fanboy Commentary series, featuring the recently recorded Ewoks: Caravan of Courage. The second Ewoks movie, The Battle For Endor, is a patron-only exclusive!

 

This week's topics:

  • Remembering Stan Lee

  • Casting choices for The Mandalorian including Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano

  • Galaxy’s Edge Park Info - John Williams original score for the park, and two rides were teased

  • Star Wars Commonwealth Group Question: With Star Wars episode 9 a little over a year away, every Star Wars fan is in full speculation mode. We all have things we'd love to see in the final installment, but I see a huge focus on things we don't want to see. Reylo, Force Ghost Jamborees, the salvation of Ben Solo, these are just a couple of the major "Please Don'ts" of episode 9. My question is: Looking back at both the OT and the Prequels, what were some "please don'ts of their final installments that both made it into the film, and didn't make it? Which scenes do you think were not wanted by the general audience, but now years later, are beloved? Finally, do you think it's possible to have any of the "please don'ts" be in Episode 9 and have it change your mind if it's done correctly?

 

No Drink November has ended quite suddenly!

If you want to buy us beer and occasionally get free junk, then it's time for you to join our Patreon.

We host weekly group calls with all Patreon members (which end up becoming episodes, which means you get to be on the podcast). Patreon members also get discounts with all of our current and future sponsors, and are members of a super secret private group chat on WhatsApp.

We've had a lot of people say that our group chat is one of the few ways for Star Wars fans to actually talk about Star Wars lately, what with all the psycho haters and crazy anti-Disney propaganda out there. It's fun, it's goofy, it's uncensored, and it's non-toxic.
