Star Wars fans were saddened Thursday at the news of the passing of the beloved actor who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars films. In this episode, Tatooine Sons is joined by our friends from Jumping into Hyperspace and JG Carse of Blue Saber Podcast to celebrate the Life of Peter Mayhew.
Plus, we discuss the latest Star Wars news including:
- Whether the way that Lucasfilm released the title of Episode IX, The Rise of Skywalker, with the teaser helped or hurt the promotion of the film
- The Star Wars UK website listed Matt Smith as part of the cast of The Rise of Skywalker, but then removed it. Is Smith in the film, and if so, what part will he play
- The Australian website for Penguin publishing mistakenly listed a raw description of an unannounced Kylo Ren novel on the post for the Galaxy’s Edge novel Black Spire. Is a Kylo Ren backstory novel coming? And if so, what do we hope to learn from it?
