Sure, THE MANDALORIAN AND GROGU film is deep in pre-production, THE BAD BATCH is steeped in mid-season, and new STAR WARS home video releases are on the way. But despite all that, the biggest story in STAR WARS news this week is the resurfacing of a 2003 broadcast from Chile featuring beer advertising edited into the STAR WARS movies themselves. We look at some of the footage and discuss the impact on the internet this old footage has had. In other news, new 4k Blu Ray releases for OBI-WAN KENOBI and ANDOR were revealed this week, composer John Williams revealed a big “mistake” he made when composing music for the original 1977 STAR WARS film, an odd goof has been discovered by freeze-framing REVENGE OF THE SITH, and we pay tribute to a late Friend of the Show, Mark Dodson - The voice of Salacious Crumb. Plus, we feature more highlights from Billy Dee Williams’ new autobiography, BAD BATCH listener feedback and more!

The next STAR WARS streaming series, THE ACOLYTE, is coming this summer. We discuss what we know about the story and listen to comments from showrunner Leslye Headland to find clues. Former MANDALORIAN actor Gina Carano made waves last week by revealing her lawsuit against Lucasfilm for wrongful termination. We listen to new comments from Gina explaining why she wants to move forward with litigation and the challenges she’s encountered since losing her gig. We also consider the future for the character Cara Dune and wonder if there is a chance Gina will return to the role. Could the character get recast with a new actor? We speculate! We also continue our search for the “new” Wilhelm Scream with fresh evidence gathered by the RFR Investigative Report Team. Plus, THE PHANTOM MENACE celebrates its 25th anniversary this year with a return to the theaters, STAR WARS kitchen items, Sith Lightning, STAR WARS in Pop Culture and more!

In a surprise announcement this week, Lucasfilm revealed THE MANDALORIAN AND GROGU will be an upcoming feature film to go into production this year. We look forward to the Mando movie and how it will affect the other STAR WARS films already in the pipeline. Director of the upcoming Daisy Ridley "New Jedi Order" film, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, made her first on-camera comments about the movie, inciting negative backlash from the fanbase. We analyze her statements within their appropriate context and try to discover what gives her the proper skill set to direct a STAR WARS film.
