  • Lucasfilm recently confirmed Forces of Destiny is no longer in production – will you be disappointed if the series doesn’t return?
  • In the Aftermath (no pun intended) of the Chuck Wendig firing, Will Disney stress employees and independently contracted talent maintain a certain standard of conduct and responsibility on social media while working for the company?
  • Back to the fun stuff. The Phantom Menace will likely have a 20th anniversary panel at SWC 2019. SInce he attends most events we can assume Ray Park will be there, but will any of these people make an appearance?
    Liam Neeson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ewan McGregor, Ahmed Best, Natalie Portman
  • Will Rose and Finn be in a romantic relationship in IX?
  • As a brief warm up to our big discussion, Will Kylo Ren be the only dark side of the Force user in present time (no flashback or vision) in Episode IX?


DISCUSSION: Will Kylo Ren Have an Apprentice in Episode IX?

Kylo Ren is not a Sith (as far as we know entering Episode IX) but that doesn’t mean he can’t have an apprentice. We all know he is more than willing to be a teacher!

“You need a teacher, I can show you the ways of the Force.” – Kylo Ren

See? So if we have an expected time jump between Episodes VIII and IX, isn’t it possible our new Supreme Leader has taken on an apprentice? Let’s talk about that possibility and where it can take the movie and shape the story. Thank you to our listener Ryan Sime @RyanRyanscott00 for inspiring this discussion!
