FR went live this week to review the big STAR WARS news coming out of D23 Expo in Anaheim. In honor of the big event, we opened up our switchboard to hear what you think of THE MANDALORIAN trailer, the big KENOBI announcement, and the latest reveals from THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. And of course, the vision of a Rey with a reticulated red blade was nothing short of thrilling. Plus, panel and interview highlights from the event with cast and crew and more.

As D23 begins, we speculate about a KENOBI series for Disney+, we get pumped up for THE MANDALORIAN, and ramp up towards THE RISE OF SKYWALKER with new information about the John Williams soundtrack and new books. We go IN THE CANTINA with STAR WARS artist Otis Frampton to discuss his pitch for THE JAWA ADVENTURES. Plus, a little Star Wars collecting talk, a few laughs, and sand. It gets everywhere.

Some wild rumors erupted this week claiming George Lucas still owns the rights for STAR WARS characters he created and Disney is sending him checks to use them. We wade through the rumors and present a case that we hope determines whether or not these reports are valid. We got our first look at the second and final season of STAR WARS RESISTANCE in a new trailer that dropped this week. We discuss some of the highlights and info revealed. And is a well-known actor from ABC’s THE GOLDBERGS appearing in THE RISE OF SKYWALKER? The answer is YES and we will tell you who it is! We look forward to STAR WARS announcements potentially coming next weekend at D23, including confirmation of a KENOBI series on Disney+ starring Ewan McGregor. Plus, more on the definition of Lucasian, a Rancho Obi-Wan update, and Jimmy Mac’s Artoo vs BB-8 Facebook debate.

Earlier this week, Disney’s Bob Iger addressed the reality of lowered attendance at Disneyland in the wake of opening STAR WARS: GALAXY’S EDGE during his third quarter shareholders conference call. We review Iger’s comments and provide our own commentary with Jimmy Mac’s perspective after recently visiting the park. We discuss what is Disney doing right and try to evaluate what they are doing wrong. On THE MANDALORIAN front, Jon Favreau talked about advice given to him by George Lucas and revealed some more hints about the show’s plot in recent interviews. We have the highlights. Plus, a review of the Scum And Villainy Cantina in Hollywood, recent Kevin Smith comments about visiting the RISE OF SKYWALKER set, a shout-out for RFR in a venerable England magazine from a UK comedian, and we learn about THE JAWA ADVENTURES.
