This episode features a look at the many Star Wars announcements and updates that happened this past week in celebration of Star Wars Day.

Ryan is back after taking a bit of a hiatus from both Star Wars and the podcast. We catch up on where he's at with Star Wars overall before jumping into Clone Wars season 7, recent comics, and both the TROS digital release and novelization. In the second half of the show we discuss the impact COVID-19 may have on the High Republic, Celebration, Galaxy's Edge, and upcoming Disney+ shows.

This episode features a look at over 25 leaked concept art images from Colin Trevorrow's Duel of the Fates script including sequences, planets, vehicles, and characters not seen in The Rise of Skywalker. I hadn't actually read the leaked script at the time this episode was recorded, so it's mostly a reaction to the images themselves and a brief synopsis of the story I'd come across. The art itself is embedded in the podcast chapters or in the video version available on YouTube; if you're driving or doing the dishes or something while listening, you can check them out on Imgur here.

Star Wars Resistance ended on a high note last week with the excellent two-part episode "The Escape." Friend of the show Caleb joins John to show some love to the often overlooked Resistance, take a quick look back at season two, and break down this final episode's best moments. We also look forward to Clone Wars season 7 and the future of Star Wars animation to round out the episode.

This week's show is a brief look at some of the most compelling portions of the recently released Rise of Skywalker Visual Dictionary. It opens with a  few minutes on the history and purpose of Star Wars visual dictionaries before focusing on the book's info on Exegol, the Sith Eternal, Lando and Jannah, Ochi of Bestoon, and more.  Episode Links: The Rise of Skywalker Visual Dictionary on Amazon Show Links: Email = blockaderunnerpodcast@gmail.com Click here to send us a voice message!

This week's episode is a recording of a Trivial Pursuit game John and Chris played at a kitchen table outside of St. Paul, Minnesota a few hours after catching a screening of The Rise of Skywalker. As a result it features lots of chatter about Episode 9, the prequels, sequels, and original trilogy, but also pretty rough audio. We think it's a fun episode if you're ok with (far) less than great production quality, but we'll be back soon with another standard episode if not.

Ryan returns in this second post-TROS episode to weigh in on diverse characters and representation in the sequel trilogy. We spend the second half of the show deciding whether or not we believe Han, Luke, and Leia's stories were more satisfying at the conclusion of the OT or the ST. Plus we throw in a little holiday cheer at the start of the show by chatting about how Star Wars made its way into our Christmas gatherings. Episode Links: EW: "J.J.

TROS Spoilers abound as we continue our tradition of putting out an immediate reactions episode with terrible audio quality and terrible blues music pumped your way from a recording done at a local bar. John, Jeremy, Dan, Kevin, and Bart bring you an informal, loose discussion of our first thoughts on the movie. We'll be back later in the weekend with a higher audio quality, more organized look at the movie (featuring Ryan who's absent from this recording).  Show Links: Email = blockaderunnerpodcast@gmail.com Click here to send us a voice message!

There's only a few days left until the release of The Rise of Skywalker and the end of the Skywalker Saga and this episode features our final predictions about what the movie will be. We start with a brief look at The Mandalorian Chapter 6 but after that it's all TROS. Highlights include predictions about Rey, Kylo, Rey and Kylo, Bendemption, the balance of the force, chosen ones, stormtrooper rebellions, and so much more. We discuss everything that's been released by LFL, so if you've been avoiding tv spots or trailers, tread lightly.

Lucasfilm continued to release TROS tv spots and promo videos this week, so we share our favorite moments as well as debate the merits of nostalgia in these recent marketing efforts.

The Rise of Skywalker press tour is kicking into full gear with new tv spots, talk show appearances, and magazine features dropping seemingly every day, so we're digging in and pulling our favorite shots, moments, and quotes as we enjoy these last few pre-TROS weeks of anticipation. We also look at The Mandalorian Chapter 3, the current state of Star Wars merchandise availability, and wrap the show with a response to a listener question re: our personal spoiler policies leading into the TROS release.

This week's show is basically just two big segments covering The Mandalorian chapter two and Jedi: Fallen Order. We start the show by discussing favorite moments from The Mandalorian as well as some potential symbolism in the episode and the cruelty of the post-Empire galaxy. The second half of the show features our early experiences playing Jedi: Fallen Order and a discussion of its influences and gameplay systems.

The bulk of this week's show is focused on discussing what Benioff & Weiss's leaving Star Wars could mean for the franchise's future as well as what might've led to their departure. Ryan shares his experience seeing Knives Out (but says absolutely nothing about the plot, so don't worry about that) and we also spend a few minutes discussing the most recent Mandalorian trailer.
