We study leaked episode titles for THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT and attempt to predict what will happen in each episode. We also share rumors we’ve heard about the future of STAR WARS streaming series on Disney+, including THE MANDALORIAN, and listen to recent comments from director Robert Rodriguez, Giancarlo Esposito and Ewan McGregor, who provides some OBI-WAN KENOBI info. Marcia Lucas has shared her blunt opinions about the prequel and sequel trilogies and we analyze her comments. Daniel Craig is out promoting his final 007 film NO TIME TO DIE and he talked for the first time ever about his stormtrooper cameo in THE FORCE AWAKENS. We got the highlights. Former kid actor Devon Michael auditioned for Anakin Skywalker in THE PHANTOM MENACE and lost the gig to Jake Lloyd. He’s now the subject of a short documentary and we provide a review. Plus, a connection between STAR WARS VISIONS and Seinfeld, rare audio of Norm Macdonald talking about The Wars, and a STAR WARS reference in WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS.

Before the George Lucas/Dave Filoni-produced series, animation producer Genndy Tartakovsky created two seasons of CLONE WARS shorts to bridge the gap between STAR WARS Episodes II and III. Now available on Disney+, Genndy's microseries introduced new characters and concepts to the prequel era. We look back at this series with RFR Patreon VIP Matt Rashid who leads the discussion. Talented actor Michael K. Williams ("The Wire") tragically passed away this week and we look at his SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY role that never made it to the final film. We review the new trailer for STAR WARS LEGO: Terrifying Tales, and listen to new STAR WARS pop culture references from SUPERGIRL and at the racetrack.
