The theme of defiance takes center stage on this episode. In part one, we define it (how it is different than rebellion or resistance?). In part two, we talk about defiance throughout Star Wars. In part three, we speculate on future moments of defiance.
We love Ahsoka Tano. What does she signify in the larger canon? What did we think of her when she debuted in 2008? In part one, we talk about our introduction to Ahsoka and our favorite Ahsoka episodes. In part two, we talk about what she represents in the larger mythos, and her relationship with Anakin Skywalker. Charlotte presents a wild theory for Episode IX which includes Ahsoka. In part three, we talk about her lasting legacy and the future of her character. Finally, we read your emails and play your audio messages on what Ahsoka means to you. Grab the tissues and let’s discuss this no-Jedi.
Our 50th episode (!!!) is all about Force visions, premonitions, and cave sequences in Star Wars. What do these obstacles mean for our characters? What purpose do they serve in the story, and what do they mean? In part one, we talk about the prequel trilogy and the Clone Wars: Anakin’s dreams, Mortis (Ahsoka and Anakin), and even the Clone Wars microseries. In part two, it’s all about the original trilogy: Luke’s cave sequence and his vision of his friends dying. We also talk briefly about Rebels. In part three, we discuss the sequel trilogy: Rey’s vision in The Force Awakens, the mirror cave in The Last Jedi, and Rey and Kylo’s visions together. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers!
The finale of Star Wars: Rebels is here and we’re here to talk about it. Spoilers ahead! First, Caitlin gives her 30 second recap on this epic finale. Then, they each give 2 highs and 1 low about the episodes overall. Next, they discuss the story elements of Rebels: what is the state of the Rebellion? How did we feel about the ending? Could we have predicted it would come to this point? What makes a story especially “Filoni” and how do we feel about that? In the character section, we go through each character. We answer a listener email addressing some concerns about women representation in the finale — and we give our thanks to the creators of the show, as well as the fans.
Thanks so everyone who has listened to this mini-series this season! You are all awesome.
