Caitlin and Charlotte get into the concept of family in Star Wars: which is more prevalent, blood family or found family? They define family in Star Wars in part one, and talk a bit about the original trilogy, the prequels, Rebels, Clone Wars, and Rogue One. In part 2, they go into the concept of family in Solo: A Star Wars Story — spoilers ahead. In part 3, they talk about the theme of family + found family in the sequel trilogy and where they think it will all end.
