New episodes every Friday

An early draft of a script for the version of Episode IX that was to be directed by Colin Treverrow, DUEL OF THE FATES, leaked recently online. We review the script, along with concept artwork from the abandoned film. What could have been! Speaking of which, remember George Lucas's live-action TV series STAR WARS UNDERWORLD that ended up "on the shelf"? Test footage from the show was recently revealed publicly and we walk you through the whole video while wondering what the series would have been like if it actually happened.

But let's not to forget the Star Wars that actually does exist with THE RISE OF SKYWALKER still in theaters. We discuss what the state of the galaxy may be like following the end of TROS and how the Force may have awakened across the universe. Plus, Skywalker Sound's Matthew Wood interview highlights reveal interesting info about the origin of Greedo's new "Maclunky" dialog, Oscars talk, Star Wars in Pop Culture and more.
