Rebel Force Radio: Star Wars Podcast

We react to recent comments from director Matthew Vaughn about his desire for an opportunity to recast and reboot the Original Trilogy story and characters. While the next STAR WARS streaming series, SKELETON CREW, is still shrouded in relative mystery, we look back at the last time lead actor Jude Law appeared on The Tonight Show and listen closely for clues about the upcoming show. Director Sean Levy is attached to an upcoming STAR WARS film and we review quotes from a recent interview he did with Variety. Just in time for Halloween,  former LANDO writer Justin Simien talks about getting ghosted by STAR WARS. We try to read between the lines. Plus, Star Wars In Pop Culture, "Chatterback Chopper", and a word unique to Star Wars has been added to the dictionary.
