Andy LeMiere is half of the Holocronicles podcast, a show that features conversation about Star Wars collectibles while taking on the topics of the day related to the franchise.
Pete and Andy spent 90 minutes looking at the difficult conversations that are happening in social media around the Rise of Skywalker. They looked into where some of the big “gripes” come from and tried to bring an understanding to them. Join them as they look at the #WheresRose controversy, Palpatine’s backstory and the Reylo payoff. They discuss what the end of the movie means to the Leia legacy and the proclamation of Rey as a Palpatine taking the Skywalker name.
