– We kick things off with a special announcement. You’ll be able to meet us at Indy PopCon this year!
– As always, Brent tells us all about his Star Wars history — and a recent development in his Star Wars present.
– The promotion for the DVD and Blu-ray release of The Force Awakens has been ramping up. We run through our most anticipated features.
– Zachary Antell has done a side-by-side video comparing the similarities between A New Hope and The Force Awakens. But are some of them reaching just a little bit?
– According to Jake Lloyd, there’s a six hour cut of The Phantom Menace out in the wild. More podracing?
– Buzzfeed released a clip of Daisy Ridley’s audition for The Force Awakens. We’re pretty impressed at her ability to cry on demand.
– Adam Driver gave an update on Episode VIII‘s progress. What do you mean it’s not a whole film about Luke and Rey training?
– Faloni recently tweeted that Rex may be in the Original Trilogy. Specifically, that “old guy” on Endor during Return of the Jedi.
Rebels season 2 is coming to an end, and we’re dedicating a whole episode to it next week!
– This week’s Spotlight topic is all about Obi-Wan Kenobi.
– We talk about the disconnect between the Obi-Wan of the Original Trilogy and the Prequels.
– Was Obi-Wan ready for a padawan when he took on Anakin?
– If Anakin hadn’t fallen to the Dark Side, and Padme has survived, would Obi-Wan have helped with Luke and Leia?
– Does some of the blame for Anakin’s fall lie with Obi-Wan? If Qui-Gon had lived beyond Phantom Menace would things have turned out differently?
– The Jedi forbade attachments, but was Obi-Wan’s familial love for Anakin what caused his blind spot?
– What did Obi-Wan’s involvement in The Force Awakens mean. Could we see a return of his Force ghost?
– If Obi-Wan got a solo movie of his own, what would we like to see?
– We leave you with our final Obi-Wan thoughts — like his position as number one Wham fan.
