On this episode, Dominic, Ben, and Chris discuss the news that, after The Rise of Skywalker, there will be no new Star Wars movies until 2022 and then films every other year until 2026.  They discuss why Disney may have made this decision, and how it was affected by Solo: A Star Wars Story and the Fox acquisition.  Then they revisit the panel for The Mandalorian from Star Wars Celebration.  They discuss the footage that was shown, speculate about why it hasn't been released officially yet, and why it didn't resonate for everyone (mainly Dominic).  Plus, May 4th stories, the complete Journey to The Rise of Skywalker publishing slate, and how old will the guys be when the 2026 Star Wars movie comes out?  All this and much more!
