Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Spoilercast Spectacular

Matt Adams published on

In this episode, Anne and Matt offer their thoughts on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the final entry in the Skywalker Saga.

The hosts discuss the big buy-in fans must accept in order to enjoy the movie, how it deviates from plot points established in The Last Jedi, and why Adam Driver is the MVP of the sequel trilogy. Also: the greatness of Billy Dee Williams, the most exciting 1.5 second cameo in any movie ever (for Matt at least), and the emotional, suprising return of a classic trilogy character.

We're the only podcast that gives you a Rise of Skywalker-Dunkirk crossover!

The most important question of all: what happened to Luke's green lightsaber?
