On this episode, Dominic and Ben are joined by friend of the show Din of the band F-105 to discuss the latest Star Wars news and review the leaks about what was in Colin Trevorrow's Episode IX script. First, they talk about the news that Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Jojo Rabbit) is being eyed to direct a future Star Wars film and what he might bring to the table for Star Wars. Then, they look at The Rise of Skywalker hitting $1 Billion at the Box Office and being nominated for three BAFTAs and three Oscars. And then, they begin an epic break down of the leaks about the script for Episode IX (titled "Duel of the Fates") written by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. They discuss what they like, what they didn't, and how it could have been combined with some of the stuff we saw in The Rise of Skywalker. Plus, a discussion of Balance of the Force, Mortis' place in Star Wars lore, and what would have made the perfect ending to the saga. All this and much more!
