This week we get into Adam Driver's comments about the original plan for Kylo/Ben as well as look back at the casting we almost got in the Prequels. Topics include:

  • We're getting a Mando movie, but what does that mean for a season 4?
  • A trilogy with Filoni's film?
  • Ahsoka Season 2 - but when?
  • How some prequel casting choices could have been different and drastically changed the vibes of those films
  • Every "it" guy and their dog went out for the Anakin role in Attack of the Clones
  • Tom Hanks? Michael Jackson? Tupac? Christian Bale? There were some VERY interesting close calls in casting for Eps 1-3

In news, we get into the Mando movie announcement and speculate what that might mean for a season 4.  Does the Rey film have a script?  We also get into Ahsoka season 2 and possibly more Tales of the... series. We share your Maul Bag and FACPA Answering Machine messages and more!
