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!
