Remembering Peter Mayhew & Star Wars news

Wait, I thought all the news happened at Celebration, not after.... This week we decided to spend an entire episode talking about all of the news that has come out since Celebration ended! We also spend some time mourning the loss of Peter Mayhew, and celebrating our favorite Chewbacca moments.

Our next episode will be a return to Legends content with "Children of the Jedi," available later this week!


Join Star Wars fanatics, Mike and Jesse each episode as we breakdown the character & development of Luke Skywalker throughout both Legends and the Disney canon. We’ll do our best to connect the dots of Luke’s adventures through Legends/the old Expanded Universe to find out how he differs from the current canon hero, and debate which version would make The Last Jedi better.
