On this episode, Dominic, Ben, and Chris (briefly) are joined by Culture Slate video editor Jeff Montoya to break down the premiere of The Book of Boba Fett and the leaked reveal of a new project called Tales of the Jedi. They start by talking about "Stranger in a Strange Land", how their initial reactions compared to their opinions on subsequent viewings, the structure of the episode, and the story line in the desert is connected to the Mos Espa story. Then they discuss whether the Tales of the Jedi leak is one of the dumbest of all times, and speculate about what the project might be (and what connections it could have to the old comics of the same name). Plus, Adam Driver seems open to returning to Star Wars, the world's largest Boba Fett helmet is in Sweden, and how Dominic's singing was so bad that even auto-tune refused to help! All this and much more!

On this especially chaotic episode, Dominic, Chris, and Ben share their thoughts on the latest Star Wars news, including Star Wars Eclipse, The Book of Boba Fett teasers, and The Acolyte casting. To start, they're joined by Hannah Raeside and Jordan Chaffer from the Star Wars Culture Podcast (Link) to react to the brand new Star Wars Eclipse trailer. Then they talk about the casting of Amandla Stenberg in The Acolyte, as well as how the High Republic era now has a show and video game (but no movie...yet) in addition to the books. They also look at the newest Book of Boba Fett teaser and discuss the theory that we're seeing Anchorhead in there. And then, to close out the show, Dominic presents a Star Wars/Christmas mash-up you won't soon forget. Plus, does Patty Jenkins dropping out of Cleopatra mean Rogue Squadron is back on track, Star Wars: Hunters gets a new trailer, and the Alden vs deep-fake Harrison debate has its first round. All this and much more!

Then they look some new quotes from Katleen Kennedy about other false starts with Boba Fett projects, as well as the future of Rangers of the New Republic.
