Mark Ramsey, host of the new eight-part audio dramatization INSIDE STAR WARS, joins us IN THE CANTINA to talk about his popular show and his own fandom. And of course, we run Mark through the famous Yoda Questionnaire. Is Disneyland beginning to suppress the Original Trilogy content at Star Tours now that Galaxy’s Edge has opened?

All callers this week are members of RFR on PATREON and they lit up our switchboard with tons of great conversation and commentary.

We look at all the cool new details and photos from THE RISE OF SKYWALKER and we let it fuel our speculation. Plus, how will Luke and Leia fit in to the final chapter of the Saga? And how does George Lucas's approach to creating Star Wars differ from Disney? We look back at 20 years of THE PHANTOM MENACE and share our memories, from the epic lightsaber duel, to the methods of the puppet master Senator Palpatine, and we debate over who is the true protagonist of the Episode I.

Jason Landau Yep. Just like in the U.S. government, if a President becomes tyrannical, the military has a right and DUTY to remove the tyrant from office, by force, if necessary.

The best Star Wars podcast in the galaxy! I listen to you guys just about every day, and I can't get enough! I love listening to you guys talk about the wars, and enjoy the insight of the cast and crew you guys are able to bring on the show. Thanks for all you do to bring the community together, and keep up the great work!

I've loved the show for a long, long time (ago), but their recent comments about woman in the fandom is just so disheartening. I love your show. I love your spinoff shows. I love almost everything you guys have been a part of, but I can no longer support you. Hopefully, the hosts see that it's not just a bunch of progressive crybabies protesting their show. It's also long time fans who understand that Star Wars put a blaster in Leia's hands and said to little girls everywhere: "This is for you too".

Coleman McClung uhh, what? I've never heard anything from the hosts in regards to what you're referencing. Which episode? Let me know so I can start crying and writhing on the ground too.

A passionate group of guys who respect all sides of the fandom! Always thoughtful (and respectful) discussion about anything SW!

Have listened to you guys almost since the beginning, and have loved the Star Wars talk. But I think the expanded universe (as in, not GL canon) under Disney is starting to extinguish the flame...and it gets harder to listen to discussion on stories I'm not invested in anymore. It's cool if people like it, but I don't really think Disney is making these with classic fans in mind :(

The reason Holdo didn't share the plan was she feared exactly what happened when Poe found out on his own. The plan immediately was carelessly leaked to someone who could use it against them. When Poe says she is on a need to know basis that is RJ reminding us that sometimes the plan is best protected by fewer people knowing about it. The fault wasn't in Holdo not sharing the plan with Poe but with Poe not being capable at that point in respecting command and following orders. We'll see how he feels later, when he is in charge and making the hard calls, when a subordinate doesn't respect his command and causes one of his plans to fail leading to so much death.

Speaking of the Kylo Challenge, where was the evidence on his torso of having nearly been blown in half by Chewbacca?

Christopher Goings I read the novelization, and I agree that explanation is sufficient by Star Wars standards. The film doesn't get a pass though, if that's the story they wanted to tell it should have been filmed that way.

'Let us take you back to the experience of The Last Jedi' Please no...once was enough! The film was awful...script, direction, casting, etc. Not even editing by Marcia Lucas could save it!
