Last Shot by Daniel José Older preps us for Solo: A Star Wars Story by bringing us an exciting adventure with Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and a ton of new characters (but also baby Ben Solo). On this episode, we discuss what we liked about the book and how it ties into the saga as a whole. We then discuss key themes throughout the novel: parenting anxiety, the joys of doing what you love, DROID RIGHTS, and change/personal growth. We then swap quotes to analyze. And maybe there’s a surprise at the very end of the episode.

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!
