Everybody's got an opinion on Boba Fett! You either LOVE HIM... or you "don't." 😂One of the criticisms of Boba Fett is that he didn't really DO anything in the Original Trilogy. But neither did Bossk, Dengar, IG-88 or these other widely popular background characters.We ask "Gekko" from The Mandalorian - actor Dominic Pace - why he thinks these side characters have such passionate followers!PLUS! He talks about his upcoming Small Business Tour - where he'll be traveling more than 10,000 miles in 45 days with his son to bring Star Wars LOVE to comic books stores and arcades throughout the country.To learn more about the tour, CLICK HERE: our Facebook Page: our Facebook Group:!

There was a period of time when Star Wars video games were some of the hottest titles around. The Force Unleashed. Jedi Starfighter; and of course, Knights of the Old Republic. Then came Disney...Battlefront was considered child's play. Battlefront 2 struggled with loot boxes and pay to play. Jedi: Fallen Order was a blockbuster.

One of the things that was promised after the purchase of Star Wars by Disney, is a more clear and cohesive canon. And that has been true - up to a point. But recently, discontinuity has creeped in. How do we deal with this?DJ Blake of Star Wars Through the Ages Podcast joins us to try to make some sense of this whole thing.PLUS: Listen to this week's MAIN SHOW>> our Facebook Page: or Facebook Group:!

While Jar Jar Binks was clearly the most hated character of the Prequel Trilogy, no one in the Disney era of Star Wars has been more attacked than Rose Tico. The things some supposed fans have said about her, and Kelly Marie Tran - the actor who plays her - have been absolutely horrible. But Rose Tico has a very important lesson to teach us about the real world we live in today. We just have to be willing to hear it. This week, we look at Rose and how her character is faced with harsh truths about her heroes and cause. But she faces those truths and comes out on the other side stronger because of it.But FIRST - Hot Takes!We now know that Jar Jar Binks is NOT a Sith Lord, but is in fact, a Jedi Master! The population of Black Spire Outpost looks to grow exponentially very soon. And that crazy helmet rule from The Mandalorian could keep Pedro Pascal from winning awards. We’ve gotten our first glimpse of Jedi Temple Challenges!

For decades, Star Wars fans experienced deeper connection to the galaxy far, far away through books and comics in the Expanded Universe.All that changed in 2012 when Disney purchased Lucasfilm, and shifted those stories to what is now the "Legends" universe. Adam Lance Garcia of Conde Nast joins us as he share what it was like to go through that transition, and why Star Wars needed that "wilderness period" to learn what works - and what doesn't. - in a Star Wars story.LIKE our Page: our Group:
When Qui Gon Jinn first appeared in The Phantom Menace, he introduced Star Wars fans to the concept of The Prophecy of the Chosen One. It’s hard to hear about a virgin birth and a foretold child without thinking of prophecies of another kind. And now that we’ve learned more about both the Jedi prophecies and Qui Gon Jinn, we can also see how to properly live in light of such prophecies.But FIRST...Samuel the Hutt might have to temper his expectations on the reappearance of Boba Fett in The Mandalorian. There’s another Ahoska Tano rumor out there, which begs another question altogether. And George Lucas has said that Star Wars is like poetry - it rhymes. And a recently revealed deleted storyline from The Rise of Skywalker has life imitating art. That’s all next on Hot Takes. Is it Boba Fett? Is it Cobb Vanth? Why Not BOTH?

Many fans of the Original Trilogy and the Expanded Universe were thrown off by the choices made by JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson in "The Force Awakens," "The Last Jedi," and "The Rise of Skywalker."Michael Condon of The TooMedToo Star Wars Network joins us for this special discussion of why the portrayal of these legacy characters was so hard to handle for many of these fans. Plus, Michael will answer or HYPERSPACE ROUND of questions!LIKE TATOOINE SONS: OUR GROUP:!
Very little has divided Star Wars fandom over the past 5 years more than the question of who Rey’s parents were... 😱"The Force Awakens" gave us no answers at all... 😤"The Last Jedi" told us she was nobody... 😳And "The Rise of Skywalker" had us go from nobody, to Palpatine’s granddaughter, to her assuming the mantle of Skywalker. (No wonder people called watching that film "a rollercoaster!!" 🤪)But in the end, the story of Rey Skywalker is one of learning that your lineage matters much less than who you CHOOSE to become. (Even if you choose to take the name of someone else! 😬)We talk about that on this week's show, PLUS:Who's idea was it to cover Carl Weather's handsome face with prosthetics, and make Greef Karga an ALIEN in "The Mandalorian?" 👽(…/greef-karga-was-originall…/The cast of Season 2 of "The Mandalorian" is going to need a 50 passenger bus to get to the set! 🚍Which begs the question: Are there TOO MANY new characters coming to Season 2? 🤯…/katee-sackhoff-to-play-bo…/…/timothy-olyphant-cast-in-…/What would it be like for the guy with the coolest lightsaber in Star Wars (we're talking about the Grand Inquisitor, of course) to come into LIVE ACTION? 😁…/jason-isaacs-wants-to-pla…/It's TIME for Tatooine Sons!
