We're hanging out with our old pal, STAR WARS writer Adam Bray, who has contributed to many Star Wars books over the past 8 years. Adam fills us in on some fun "Easter Eggs" he placed into ULTIMATE STAR WARS, including one honoring another RFR friend. Plus, Adam provides insight into the Lucasfilm Story Group and what their actual function is, along with other highlights from his career working in the STAR WARS universe. In News Headlines: Disney is restructuring to prioritize Disney+ and we talk about what impact it may have on future Star Wars projects. New info about the mysterious Snoke has been revealed along with an interesting (and perhaps controversial) factoid about George Lucas's Sequel Trilogy Treatment. We look at a new TV spot for THE MANDALORIAN Season Two, and the story about how a sick Swank almost took down The Emperor. 
Kyle's back! We get caught up with an old friend of the show as director Kyle Newman stops by to talk "The Wars", of course, but Kyle also fills us in on his cool career as a Dungeons & Dragons author. Learn about Kyle's books "Dungeons & Dragons Art & Arcana: A Visual History" and the upcoming "Hero's Feast: The Official Dungeons & Dragons Cookbook". Could there be more FANBOYS stories in the future? Watch to find out! Plus, the countdown to THE MANDALORIAN season two continues, silly studio outtakes, The Secret History of STAR WARS and more!
Presenting the second of three RFR audio commentary tracks for THE MANDALORIAN Season One, this episode is all Mando as we watch Chapters 4-6 and talk about everything we see on screen. We get deep talking about "The Sanctuary" and the debut of Cara Dune, "The Gunslinger" featuring a return to familiar locals on Tatooine, and "The Prisoner" starring Bill Burr among others who bring some great new characters to life. This episode is designed to be listened to while watching episodes of The Mandalorian but it can also be listened to as a stand-alone podcast. Be sure to check out the first of our commentary tracks for THE MANDALORIAN and watch for #3 to drop later this month before the return of RFR's MANDALORIAN AFTER SHOW covering every episode of the upcoming season two.

Rosario was amazing as Ahsoka. Spend less time BITCHING about what we didn't get and more time celebrating what we did.

Also, stop blaming Rian Johnson for trying to make sense of JJ Abrams bad setup.

George was absolutely the right director for the Prequels. It's his story. He had every right to direct his vision and not let fuckers like JJ Abrams ruin his Saga.

Anakin Skywalker NEVER looked like Sebastian Shaw. Putting Hayden in was absolutely the correct choice.

You guys must not have read the whole thing. Ben was redeemed and Leia had a huge role in the script.

This is such a great episode! It was awesome hearing about some of the early days of Mark Hamil, and I've never seen Corvette Summer but now I'm going to look for it! I wasn't born until 1995, but the late 70s/80s sounded like a blast!

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".
