Caitlin and Charlotte react to and break down the first three episodes of ANDOR — what we loved, what we’re still grappling with, what we’re looking forward to, and much more. Which episode is our favorite? Where do we think Cassian’s character will go? Parallels with Rogue One, brilliant sound design, canaries in coal mines, and more metaphors. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers! (Recorded in August!)

Caitlin and Charlotte talk Beth Revis’ new Star Wars book, “The Princess and the Scoundrel,” all about Han and Leia’s wedding and honeymoon. Before diving in, we discuss some future plans and Caitlin shares a story about introducing her nieces to Star Wars. First, we discuss our initial impressions of the book and what really resonated with us. Did the Halcyon inclusion work? Then, we dive into the deeper themes of the novel. Finally, we give each other quotes to react. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers.

Andor is just around the corner! We participated in three roundtable interviews with Diego Luna (Cassian Andor & Executive Producer), Genevieve O’Reilly (Mon Mothma), and Kyle Soller (Syril Karn) & Denise Gough (Dedra Meero) where we got to ask them about their roles in the upcoming series. What makes Cassian so compelling? If the Rebellion is built on hope, what is the Empire built on? How does Mon Mothma’s incredible fashion inform Genevieve’s performance? All this and more on this incredible episode of Skytalkers. Thank you SO much to Disney and Lucasfilm for this opportunity!

 

We want to thank our fellow roundtable participants — and honor to be a part of this with you!: Talking Bay 94, Star Wars Explained, Triad of the Force, Jedi News UK, Skywalking Through Neverland, Star Wars Holocron, Father Son Galaxy, Pink Milk, Fangirls Going Rogue, and Coffee with Kenobi.

With Andor right around the corner, Caitlin and Charlotte revisit 2016’s ROGUE ONE and talk about it through the lens of 3 different themes: Hate, Trust, and Redemption. In part one, we talk about hate, self-loathing, and righteous hatred. In part two, we talk about how trust has a domino-effect throughout the film and ultimately serves as the glue. Finally, in part three, we talk about how ROGUE ONE is a redemption story. All this and more on Skytalkers.

We attended a couple of incredible roundtable interviews for LIGHT & MAGIC, Lawrence Kasdan’s 6-part documentary series about Industrial Light & Magic. We couldn’t recommend the series more. We spoke to Lawrence Kasdan (!!!!), the director of LIGHT & MAGIC, writer of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, RETURN OF THE JEDI, THE FORCE AWAKENS, SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, and so much more. Then, we talked to special effects masters Phil Tippett and Dennis Muren about the changing industry and their friendship. Finally, we spoke with Janet Lewin, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of ILM today about the Volume, the sequel trilogy and Rogue One, and more.

In part 3 of our series covering the anthology “Our Blessed Rebel Queen”, we look at Andrew Kemp-Wilcox’s essay, “Harvesting the Celebrity Interface: Carrie Fisher, Virtual Performance, and Software Stars”. The essay covers the topics of digital performance, online persona, the concept of the “software celebrity”, and consumerism. We continue analyzing our relationship to Princess Leia and Carrie Fisher: How we have been consumers of her image and persona and how we have projected ourselves onto her. We talk through these topics and our own ever-changing relationship with constructed images and celebrity.

The finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi is here and oh wow, our emotions. On this episode: We talk through all the relationships in the episode from Reva and Obi-Wan to Obi-Wan and Vader to Luke and the Lars’. Caitlin details “Star Wars is tragedy” and how this episode fits into that through catharsis, destiny, fate. We say goodbye to Deborah Chow’s brilliant series and reflect on so, so much here.

We’re LIVE at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim! Here’s our discussion of the first two episodes of our most anticipated show of the year, Obi-Wan Kenobi. We loved sharing this experience with you all! Please note: there’s a Q&A portion at the end that gets a bit wonky with the audio; I raised the levels so the questions are discernible but it’s a little strange, audio-wise. 

 

Thanks to everyone who attended and to those supporting us at home!
