Caitlin and Charlotte finally discuss Claudia Gray’s highly anticipated Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan Kenobi novel, “Master & Apprentice.” Plus, they reflect on Peter Mayhew’s passing, May the Fourth book news, and speculate wildly about those prophecies.
A few months ago, there were Episode IX leaks in the Star Wars community about the return of Kylo Ren’s helmet which have since been proven true through the mural that was unveiled at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, and subsequently through the teaser trailer itself. This was an interesting development because the last time we saw Kylo’s helmet in The Last Jedi, Snoke was ridiculing Kylo, telling him to take that “ridiculous thing off.” Kylo proceeds to smash the mask inside the turbolift, where we last see it in pieces on the ground as he storms away. Rian Johnson has stated that it was actually quite difficult to destroy the mask because its design was so integral to the character’s development in The Force Awakens. He felt it was necessary though as his film sought to begin to understand what was behind the mask.
