Bonus Episode - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Merry Christmas! We got you a bonus episode! Chris, Carlos, and Kristen take a break from the established formula and sit down for an impromptu chat about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Which is not to say nostalgia isn't still a big part of this discussion. In fact, the way this film plays into it vs the way The Force Awakens did had a large impact on how we felt about it. So pass the eggnog and let's get into it - because there's a lot to talk about here.
Topics include: our initial reactions to Disney purchasing Lucasfilm, how we feel about the direction these spin-offs seem to be taking, a quick recap of our feelings on Force Awakens, the overriding criticisms of Rogue One thus far and whether or not we agree with them, the unexpected way this film opens up Star Wars even though it's moving backwards, moral gray areas, those final moments, listener reactions, and much much more!
