Do you want to do a full re-watch, but you can’t because you have a life? Have you tried to do a full re-watch but you somehow end up re-watching Mando every time you open the Disney+ app? (Honestly, same.) Or maybe you just want to skip the seasons of Annoying Ahsoka. Either way, we’ll make sure you’ve got all the essential bits. One thing to note: we skipped The Clone Wars film from 2008. We just didn’t feel like watching it. It introduces the audience to Ahsoka Tano, so it’s kind of essential viewing if you’ve NEVER seen the show. But for the sake of these recaps - and our sanity - we skipped it.Look out for Ep 2 of this Clone Wars bonus series in ~2 weeks, when we'll cover Seasons 3 and 4! Twitter: @forcetoastpod | @sLeiaAllDay | @ShutUp_LauraInstagram: @forcetoastpodEmail: forcetoastpod@gmail.comWebsite: forcetoastpod.com*This podcast contains a sh!t ton of profanity and boozin.

Happy New Year’s Eve! So we went to the theater a while back and saw a new movie - maybe you’ve heard of it? It’s a little indie flick called Star Wars or something.

Laura does bad impressions/accents and Alyce is feeling a little icky but the show must go on!Anyone else starting to feel like you’ve seen most of The Rise of Skywalker already with all these TV spots? To avoid a 6-hour podcast that covers all of them, hosts Alyce and Laura each pick* their favorite TV spot to discuss.Maybe a Spoiler? Laura’s pick is a clip/trailer called “[REDACTED] Meets [REDACTED]” that was released on YouTube channel on 12/12/19. To avoid this discussion, skip 14:30-18:15The Global Press Conference for TROS took place on Dec 4, but one of the more interesting movie details to come out of it was from the costume exhibit at the event. An image of the caption from Leia’s costume references the plot of TROS. Too spoilery for you? Skip 19:40-22:15We talk vaguely about The Rise of Skywalker soundtrack details that leaked on Disney’s For Your Consideration/Awards site. Don’t panic - no spoiler warning needed here.Did you hear that a prequel to Queen’s Shadow is in the works? You did? Us too! Yay books! Author E.K.

We also have a question from listener Tully about how to cope when the Star Wars fandom starts to lose its luster.Finally, Force Toast took to the West Coast to battle it out in the trivia trenches of downtown Los Angeles. We take a break from our regular trivia segment to discuss/react to the Star Wars match that took place at the Schmoedown Spectacular IV. Check out the match on YouTube on 12/17!

Q: What’s better than one bonus? A: A second bonus! Too bad we’re not talking about money. Just Force Toast content for your eager ears. In this Double Shot Bonus episode, hosts Alyce and Laura sit down with Mat from the Blue Bantha Milk Co. YouTube channel to discuss* the series, The Road to IX! Then we’ve got an audio version of the video we did with Blue Bantha Milk Co. in Summer 2019 when we discussed Maul’s character arch in Star Wars Rebels. If you’d rather skip over our mad interview skills and get to the good stuff in video form, you can find that here.Maul has been a fan favorite ever since his debut in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in Summer 1999. Twenty years later, we still can’t stop talking about him. You could say that, perhaps, we are #MoistForMaul? Thanks to the YouTuber who left that comment on the video. Such a delicious hashtag…Anyway, Maul’s reappearance in Star Wars Rebels presented us with an older Maul, but was he any wiser? Tune in and let us know what you think. Helpful links referenced in this episodeThe video version of the audio heard in this episode from A Force Toast to Maul in Star Wars Rebels - The Road to Episode IX, Part 8 on YouTubeThe playlist for Blue Bantha Milk Co.'s The Road to IX series on YouTube  Blue Bantha Milk Co.Twitter: @BlueBanthaMilk | @FedoraJedi | @FirstToLastPodInstagram: @BlueBanthaMilkCoYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BlueBanthaMilkCo Force Toast: A Star Wars Happy HourTwitter: @forcetoastpod | @sLeiaAllDay | @ShutUp_LauraInstagram: @forcetoastpodEmail: forcetoastpod@gmail.comWebsite: forcetoastpod.com*This podcast contains a sh!t ton of profanity and boozin.

OK FIRST THING: We use the planet names Parnassus and Passanna interchangeably in this episode. Not because it’s right, but because we’re dumb. And by we, of course we mean Alyce and Laura. Pete and Josh are smart. Sorry about that. As far as we know, Parnassus isn't in this movie.AnywayWhat an adventure it will be to go back and listen to this after “The Rise of Skywalker” comes out, right? If you’re listening to this in the future, remind us to come back and re-listen to this. We hope the future is cool.HighlightsWe all play Guess That Planet with the tree planet and we will ALL be wrongJosh does his Alan Rickman, I mean, Adam Driver impressionPete does a Jar Jar impression that’s so spot on, we’re pretty sure he could do it professionallyStar Wars Rebels Twitter is back from the dead and here to partyImportant questions to be addressedDoes the Resistance care about the environment?Is Babu Frick actually important or is he just the Polly Pocket of Star Wars?Did you bring some singles with you?

Shimmy on down, Skywalkers!We’re cutting the bullsh!t because we have A LOT to get to this week! You may have heard us preparing for a trivia competition called [insert Kristian Harloff voice here] The Movie Trivia Schmoedown! If you haven’t watched it yet, GET OUT!Seriously! GTFO because hosts Alyce and Laura are going to spoil* it all in your earholes right now! We can’t give you timestamps to avoid because there’s really no avoiding it in this episode. Go watch the match HERE before you listen so you don’t get spoiled.There’s Star Wars news pouring out of the Austin Film Festival’s orifices and it’s like our friend Maria always says: “I’ve got time for that!” Except it’s the opposite. Benioff and Weiss don’t have time for Star Wars. As if that’s a real thing. On the other end of that, screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan sounds like he  does have time for it, but he’s giving Star Wars the boot.Naomi Ackie, who plays Jannah in The Rise of Skywalker, continues to be the greatest person on the planet, as proven by her recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, as well as everything about her.Alyce’s future ex-husband Ewan McGregor did an interview with Men’s Journal and every Star Wars news outlet is confused apparently. But don’t worry, we actually read the article so we’ll set the record straight.Finally, we’ve got a voicemail from our friend Maria and a special guest and special props for a speed round of Star Wars Trivial Pursuit (btw sorry for the some of the audio issues in trivia - Alyce and our guest tried to share a mic/stand and there was a pretty severe height discrepancy). Twitter: @forcetoastpod | @sLeiaAllDay | @ShutUp_LauraInstagram: @forcetoastpodEmail: forcetoastpod@gmail.comWebsite: forcetoastpod.com*This podcast contains a sh!t ton of profanity and boozin.

Ew, what’s this? A Star Wars podcast? Um, actually we just got back from Los Angeles so this is a podcast about acai bowls now.In Episode 21, hosts Alyce and Laura get everyone up to speed* on what happened in LA without actually saying anything about what happened in LA. Then it’s back to the regularly scheduled program of what’s new with The Rise of Skywalker (no spoilers), Admiral Ackbar’s son 1) exists and 2) appeared in a comic, Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo is living his best life on twitter and Freddie Prinze Jr. is here to punch us all in the face with Star Wars Knowledge. Star Wars Resistance is back and, with it, Alyce’s signature Resistance Recaps! Buckle up, baby, because she’s got 2 episodes to cover. Resistance episode recaps include spoilers, so if you want to avoid this discussion, skip 55:45-1:11:29.Listener Colten has a question about the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series and Listener Andy wants to know which canon material outside of the films/animation we believe has had the biggest impact on the Star Wars canon.Finally, Force Toast returns to its standard, albeit lazy, trivia format and discovers a unicorn in the haystack! Helpful links referenced in this episode:Star Wars Spelt Out guest spotOur friend Star Wars Dextrous on twitter edited a dope ass picture of usFreddie Prinze Jr.’s epic Star Wars rant Twitter: @forcetoastpod | @sLeiaAllDay | @ShutUp_LauraInstagram: @forcetoastpodEmail: forcetoastpod@gmail.comWebsite: forcetoastpod.com*This podcast contains a sh!t ton of profanity and boozin.

We pledge allegiance to the Toast! We are 20 episodes old! That’s crazy. We honestly thought all of us would be dead by now.But since we’re all still here, hosts Alyce and Laura get one last word* in before they go all Hollywood on your asses. There’s a fashion show. Alyce’s birthday shows that Star Wars Twitter™ is Good Sometimes. Disney finally decides to start telling people know there’s a Star Wars movie coming out in December. Before there was Triple Force Friday, there was a livestream that should have been named “Adults Try to Get Excited About Toys.” Somehow this leads us to Alyce’s techniques for dealing with bad dates.Lucasfilm hosted a publishing panel at #NYCC last weekend and, thanks to our buddy Brad at the Friends of the Force podcast, we have the deets! Laura recaps the Resistance Reborn previews that dropped last week. If you are avoiding spoilers for the new novel, skip 30:20-38:05.Lesson learned from the Kylo Ren issue of Age of Resistance: keep expectations for all comics super low. Even when the preview looks awesome. Speaking of awesome, Alyce does a brief recap of The Legends of Luke Skywalker and some of the comics she’s caught up on that weren’t a huge boner shrinker.In this episode’s listener questions and emails, a tongue-twister from Timothy on Force ghosts takes us on a very strange tangent and Maria gets distracted in the best way while leaving us a voicemail. And there are PRESENTS!Last on the docket, friends and listeners put Laura through the Star Wars Trivia ringer one last time before Force Toast heads to the west coast!

Force Toast: your source for important topics like, What Cats: The Musical and Kylo Ren Have in Common, and Is Star Wars Actually Catholic As F-ck?Both of those are real things discussed in this episode. We hope you grabbed some holy water on your way in.In Episode 19, hosts Alyce and Laura talk* about comics for once. First up is the Age of Resistance Snoke comic, which is really a Kylo Ren comic is disguise. You’re not fooling anyone, Marvel. Then it’s on to the starwars.com preview of the Age of Resistance Kylo Ren comic (out Sept 25) featuring Imperial Trooper Scarface (probably not his real name)! Yes, “Imperial” as in the Empire. Sh^t is getting WEIRD and we’re here for it.We sneak in one final, itty bitty discussion (no spoilers) on Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire and then it’s all about the Friends of Force Toast, who sent us some amazing questions to contemplate this week:Six Sequel Trilogy Characters walk into a bar.

Bright Suns, nerds! Hosts Alyce and Laura have to correct* literally everything they said in Episode 17, but then it’s onward and up the Spire to what’s in the news and what we’re reading! First up, some final thoughts on the D23 coverage of The Rise of Skywalker, what Coca-cola and sporks have in common, and what we learned from Entertainment Weekly’s coverage of The Mandalorian. Galaxy's Edge: A Crash of Fate is making Alyce feel a little squirmy, but that might be because she’s old balls now. Honestly, it’s probably time that we tell her stop driving at night and put her in a home. Anyway, no spoiler warnings this week for A Crash of Fate or Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire. Given that neither of us had finished Black Spire at the time of recording, we won’t ruin anything for you. But if you haven’t read it, you should. And if you’re going to go to Galaxy’s Edge, you REALLY should read this book first. Finally, this week’s listener question is brought to us by our friend Timothy (@toastedzen): How did Obi-Wan’s relationship with Anakin affect whether Obi-Wan believes Anakin/Vader is redeemable or not? This served as a sort of jumping off point that led to a What-If discussion about the notorious master and padawan. Josh Hartnett? Shaun White? Are you listening? Alyce is desperate.

Ask and you shall receive! After weeks of nothing new (besides books), D23 certainly delivered. Hosts Alyce and Laura are diving into* the Kenobi series announcement, The Mandalorian trailer, the timeline revealed at D23 and The Rise of Skywalker footage(1) that we didn’t actually see until after we recorded. Obviously the Obi-Wan Disney+ series announcement has consumed every living fiber of Alyce’s being since Friday night. So naturally we have to break that down to a degree that’s going to make your dog horny AF. Other topics we touch on include Star Wars Resistance (RIP) season 2, Star Wars barbies, the Cassian Andor series, Thrawn: Treason(2), Crash of Fate(3) and Myths and Fables. See below for SPOILER warning timestamps. We tackle some questions from our friends about making a profit in a galaxy far, far away, the First Order’s perception of Supreme Leader F*ck Up Kylo Ren and our predictions for the finally-confirmed Kenobi series. Last but not least, a little trivia from the worlds of A New Hope and Solo: A Star Wars Story. Now that we’ve seen the D23 Expo Special Look at The Rise of Skywalker, what part of the footage are you most excited to see on the big screen in December? Join the conversation on twitter or email us! To avoid spoilers for the following topics: The Rise of Skywalker footage shown at D23 - skip 40:38-51:50 Thrawn: Treason - skip 59:10-1:13:40 Crash of Fate - skip 1:13:50-1:18:50 (discussion is only mildly spoilery) Helpful links referenced in this episode: A Toast to Maul: our video with Blue Bantha Milk Co on Maul, Star Wars Rebels and how they might influence TROS Our recent guest appearance on Friends of the Force Hello There (The Democracy On The High Ground Song) by Isaac 2187 on YouTube used in our intro Hello There Remix, Ft.
