In week seven of our Star Wars Theory Series, we’re talking all things Episode VIII! Liz and her co-star (and brother!) Pat break down what the fans deserve from the second installment of the new continuation of the franchise — especially after the success of Rogue One.
In this podcast, we discuss:
-How many more films we need to wrap up the Skywalker storyline;
-What Rey’s purpose is;
-Why we need more lightsaber battles AND force ghosts;
-Why a villain like Darth Maul would be badass (not actually Maul, but a character like him!)
-If there will be other Jedi in Episode VIII. Hey, Luke was training Ben Solo and others — it’s possible!
-We also say goodbye to Carrie Fisher. See below for charities you can donate to in her honor.
Honor Carrie Fisher:
As the world knows, we lost Carrie Fisher to a heart attack over the holiday. Her mother, famed actress Debbie Reynolds passed away a day later. What a heartbreaking week. Carrie was a major advocate for mental health awareness, so we’ve collected the following charities you can donate to in her honor:
–The Humanist Hub (Carrie was honored with their Lifetime Achievement Award)
