Click here to download the episode directly!

Star Wars: Rebels is in the home stretch… Skytalkers’ Fulcrum Files returns to discuss the two emotional episodes, Jedi Night and DUME. Spoilers ahead! First, Caitlin gives her 20 second recap of the episodes. Then, they give their 2 highs and 1 low. They discuss story next: How did we feel about the pacing of these episodes individually and as a two-part arc? Do we think the episode was balanced in giving our characters time to grieve while moving the plot forward towards the next step? In part three, they go through each character and their journeys, and they speculate on the future of the season.

Caitlin finally read the Revenge of the Sith novelization by Matthew Stover! In part one, we discuss the merits of novelizations and how this one stacks up comparatively. In part two, they go through the characterizations of Padmé, Anakin, and Obi-Wan. In part three, they practice “lectio divina” and choose passages for each other to analyze immediately.

It’s REAL! We watched the Super Bowl spot and the official teaser of Solo: A Star Wars Story and have our reactions and thoughts! What do we think about Alden Ehrenreich as Han? Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra? We give our thoughts on the visual language, time period, and potential story elements. Inevitably, we ask: What does this story mean for the future of “anthology” films in Star Wars? Is Star Wars abandoning the different-genre exploration that was promised years ago? This, and of course, what we think of it all, on this special one-take episode of Skytalkers!
