This week, we celebrate May the 4th and the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi by looking back at the rescue of Han Solo from Jabba's palace. Topics include:

  • Was it a good plan or more of a 'winging it' situation?
  • What went well and what went wrong
  • Why didn't Luke use the force in the Rancor pit?
  • What if R2-D2 was assigned to Jabba's bathroom instead of his Sail Barge?
  • Was this Luke's final trial to becoming a Jedi Knight?

In our Question of the Week, we share your responses on if Ahsoka could/should use the World Between Worlds to go back and kill Palpatine as a baby. In news, we discuss the writer's strike that is now underway and what effects it will have on Star Wars (and the rest of the industry); we also look at the Lindelof script rumors and discuss the feasbility of Taika Waititi starting to shoot his Star Wars film next year. We answer your Maul Bag questions, play another FACPA Answering Machine voicemail and more!
