Here’s a good long look at the upcoming series on Disney+. It’s really looking like folks need to watch Rebels before diving into this one. And that’s not a bad thing. Rebels was good, it just took a long time to get up to speed.
Love it or hate it, we’re got the first movie of the sequel trilogy this week.
Hey gang, I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this week, we’ve got Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trivia on tap. The new movies were divisive to say the least. But we covered the other six movies in the Skywalker saga, so it only stands to reason we hit Episodes 7-9.
As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. I ask the questions, you get a timer, and then we settle up. Sound good? Great. Then let’s get started.
I told you we’d be back to a galaxy far, far away. Time to catch up with the third (or sixth) movie in the series, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
This week’s episode is dedicated to our idol, Alex Trebek. Alex was a fixture in our homes for over three decades and he will be sorely missed. If you’re anything like us, you grew up on Jeopardy! and found your love of trivia there.
If you’re feeling like doing something in Alex’s honor, please donate to the Pancreatic Cancer Network (PanCAN). They do great work for people fighting the disease as well as support their families. This disease is deadly and often incurable.
We love you Alex and we’ll miss you. Thank you for everything!
The new vision for Star Wars is a new era, set 200 years before The Phantom Menace. Not quite as old as the (now non-canon) Old Republic era, but at a point when the Republic and the Jedi are at their height. Sounds promising.
The final installment of the new Star Wars trilogy is out in theaters, so it’s time for some thoughts on the film.
I’m not going to lie. It looks good.
Episode IX, The Rise of Skywalker comes out this December. Enjoy picking it apart between now and then.
