Then they dissect a recent interview with JJ Abrams where discusses his time working established franchises and where the film industry is going. Chris eventually calls in from iHOP with friends of the show Jeffrey White (Hype Function, Maniacle Melodies), Clarice Taylor (Star Wars Culture) and Lauren Scott (Culture Slate) to talk a little Bad Batch ahead of the new episode. Then, to close out the show Dominic and Ben discuss Dave Filoni's new job title and Kevin Feige (once again) saying he doesn't want to run Star Wars.
