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!

20 - The Vader Renaissance

Season 3, Ep. 20

Welcome back to the Quarter Portion Podcast, the only Star Wars podcast that finds your lack of faith disturbing!

For our first episode of 2019, we're talking about the oldest and perhaps most recognizable icon of the franchise: Darth Vader himself. A recent fan film, "Shards of the Past," came out during the holidays and has since brought in almost six million views. Its high production values and focus on action have many discussing the merits of this storytelling method. [Editorial Note: Pat was thinking of Star Wars Explained during the conversation, not the fan film’s actual channel, Star Wars Theory.]

Between this film, the novel "Thrawn: Alliances," and the second "Darth Vader" comic series from Marvel and writer Charles Soule, the original Dark Lord of the Sith has been going through a renaissance of sorts. Rarely has Vader been explored in such depth, and all of these recent developments have Chris & Pat seeing him in new light - especially after the comic series' epic Force-vision conclusion.

What did we think of the fan film? What questions are raised and answered in Darth Vader #25? How has our understanding and appreciation of Hollywood's most iconic villain changed recently?

Later, a fan question prompts us to discuss the prospects for Obi-Wan and Vader-focused projects. What kind of stories could be told about Master and Apprentice in the back half of their lives? In what form would we like to see these stories told?

Tune in for all of this and much, much more!

[Spoilers for "Darth Vader (2017-2018) #25 - visit Heroes Comics to check out this phenomenal series!]

19 - 2018 in Review

Season 3, Ep. 19

Welcome back to the Quarter Portion Podcast, the only Star Wars podcast which finds that answer vague and unconvincing!

As the year draws to a close, Chris & Patrick look back on the major events of 2018 in the galaxy far, far away, and look ahead to the absolute whirlwind that will be 2019! Bad business calls and schisms in the community have led the Disney era to lose momentum for the first time, but as we realized while running through the things that we know are coming next year, we expect the franchise will be right back up to speed in a few months.

Where did things go "wrong"? Will Star Wars be more successful on the small screen than in the theatre? What areas do we want the canon to explore? How can we as fans temper our expectations? And what does the future look like for Star Wars beyond the coming year?

While the Star Wars mothership has pulled out of hyperspace for the time being, 2018 was a huge year for our humble podcast and we hope 2019 will be bigger still. We want to thank everyone who listened to the show, chatted with us at events, or shared us with their friends, from the bottom of our hearts. Have a great holiday, however you celebrate it, and we'll see you in the new year!
