SPECIAL EPISODE: Kenobi Series and SPECIAL EPISODE: Kenobi Series and "Fan" Racism

Yub Nub

Welp. 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' came out and so did the subsection of racists who purport to be Star Wars fans, flooding Moses Ingram's social media with poorly-spelled hate and flimsy excuses. So who better to talk about their racism and the pretend-tv-criticism they hide it behind than some Black TV writing Star Wars fans?

Our hosts find themselves separated by a great distance, like two parts of a Force dyad trying to hang out and touch hands in a cave. First, Jim is back and reflects on the growing universality of #StarWarsDay. Then, Greg and Tim talk about Kenobi, what it could be, and how to keep the Expanding Universe accessible for casual fans.

It's a DubNub this week, as Tim and Greg discuss Zach Snyder's on-set tweet from his Star-Wars-inspired original film Rebel Moon. Will it transform the space opera genre? Was it originally Episode X? What will the swords be like?

It's time to dive in to the movie Francis Ford Coppola funded and George wrote almost half a decade before Star Wars: THX 1138. Robert Duvall! Obsolete cubes! Pushover robots! Special Edition type changes! (Note: This movie is wildly more 'mature' in content than most SW stuff, so the conversation naturally is as well! Dystopia, baybee!)

Inspired by the controversial Grand Inquisitor head in the Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer, we talk about translating stories from animation to live action, Lucasfilm's place in advancing effects technology, and why the battle between practical and special effects is actually symbiotic.

Plus... we talk about that head. Pretty weird head.
