STAR WARS Behind-The-Scenes news dominates this week’s episode of Rebel Force Radio. From the bombshells dropped in Bob Iger’s new memoir regarding Disney’s treatment of George Lucas, to the shocking news about Marvel’s Kevin Feige joining the galaxy far, far away, this has been a memorable week. Be there with us when the Feige news broke and hear our first-blush reactions and predictions. What will this mean for the future of Star Wars, Kathleen Kennedy, and the projects announced for Benioff/Weiss and Rian Johnson? We try to connect-the-dots. We go through the STAR WARS chapter in “The Ride of a Lifetime” and analyze Bob Iger’s account of the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm and missteps along the way, along with revelations and confirmations about how the sale when down. Plus, the lessons learned by Luke Skywalker, Star Wars collecting rants spill over from RFR Rush Hour and more!

RFR LIVE returned this week and we took your calls to hear what you think about The Rise Of Skywalker and the future of STAR WARS. The phone lines were open all night and you guys brought some amazing conversation. Bill Burr revealed he will be joining THE MANDALORIAN cast, and we have some audio highlights revealing his disconnect from the Galaxy Far, Far Away. Dan Spindle, morning news anchor from Salt Lake City NBC affiliate KSL, gives us a report from his recent encounter with Hayden Christensen and Ian McDiramid, The Yoda Questionnaire Returns, cool Snoke theories and more.

We’re looking forward towards the launch of THE MANDALORIAN with new comments from Filoni and Favreau, along with action figure leaks. What is the Offworld Jawa? We try to figure it out! In STAR WARS news this week, Ian McDiarmid & Hayden Christensen were not allowed to participate in a convention panel due to a last-minute restriction by Disney. We look between the lines to decipher what this cancellation might mean for THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. We look back at the classic KENOBI novel by John Jackson Miller and discuss Gaffi Sticks, Krayt Dragons and Kenobi Keychains. And we’re probably the only fans on the internet to acknowledge a mundane anniversary for the Droids/Ewoks Hour from the eighties.
