Episode IX Teaser Reactions

Celebration is in full swing and the hype has awoken, as we now have our first look at Episode IX!

The teaser manages to whet our appetites and provide a lot of tantalizing moments, while also not giving too much away. Chris and Pat dissect it scene by scene and try to speculate (responsibly) on what could be going on - from Rey's new outfit and that TIE Silencer jump to guerilla warfare on a desert planet to... that menacing laughter.

And of course, the title! What do you think this enigmatic title could mean?

23 - In Defence of Anakin

Season 3, Ep. 23

Welcome back to the only Star Wars podcast that sees through the lies of the Jedi! We're joined by Amy and Derek of Guild Two-Taps to reevaluate some long-held Prequel opinions!

Anakin Skywalker is the crux of the Star Wars saga but also one of the most hotly debated components of the Prequel Trilogy. Many long-time fans found his journey didn't meet their lofty expectations. But what about those who first experienced the franchise from young Anakin's perspective?

Along the way we discuss the inevitability of Anakin's fate, the impact Qui Gon could have had on him if he'd lived, Obi Wan's mentoring qualifications, the legacy Anakin leaves for his grandson, and much more!

What do you think about the tragedy of Anakin - his story or its portrayal?

22 - Pageturners, Sequel Edition

Season 3, Ep. 22

Welcome back to the Quarter Portion Podcast, the only Star Wars podcast that has at least attempted to read the sacred Jedi texts! While Pat's searching for real estate on the Forest Moon of Endor, Chris is here to answer one of the questions we get asked the most: "where do I start with Star Wars books?" As our favourite book of the current Canon is "Bloodline" by Claudia Gray, Chris explores the books currently set in the thirty years between Episodes VI and VII, and how they enhance the overall narrative (without spoiling anything, so you can still enjoy them for yourself!). The Marvel comics and Star Wars: Resistance also come up - the Sequel era may seem sparse on details, but there's a lot of great stories across all forms of Star Wars media!

Let us know - have you read many of these books? What's your favourite from this time period?

21 - Second Anniversary Retrospective

Season 3, Ep. 21

Welcome back to the Quarter Portion Podcast, the only Star Wars podcast that is one with the Force, and the Force is with it!

February marks the second anniversary of the show, so Chris & Pat reflect on the journey so far. We check in on our personal film rankings, as we did in our first episode, and add two new films to the roster. We also discussed how our perspectives have changed with time, and how the generational impact continues to affect our experiences. As for the show itself, what have been our favourite moments so far? And what big things can we look forward to in the rest of 2019?

After looking at the past, we turn to the future. Episode IX has finished filming, and possibly also The Mandalorian, so we look ahead to the rest of the year. When will we get the first trailers, and is all the hype for a title announcement worth it?

Thanks for tuning in for the journey so far!
