Caitlin and Charlotte debate the genre of Star Wars: they discuss fairy tales, westerns, and space operas — and everything in between. What genre will The Rise of Skywalker be? What is Daisy Ridley referring to? This and more on this episode of Skytalkers.
We talk with Nerdist’s Lindsey Romain about mythological parallels, Rey’s symbolism, The Rise of Skywalker speculation, Reylo, and much more. Plus, Lindsey gives her answers to the Skytalkers Dinner question.
On this episode, Charlotte and Caitlin dive into the theme of concealment throughout Star Wars. They cover concealment and the dark side, masks, Revenge of the Sith, some The Rise of Skywalker theories, and much, much more.
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.
