Needless Things Podcast 297 – Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

December 27, 2019


Recorded LIVE in the Bungalow of Eternal Sorrows, the Needless Things Irregulars gathered to review the final installment of the Skywalker Saga!

Beginning in 1999 with young Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace, continuing in 1977’s Star Wars, and now ending in 2019 with Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, the Saga has been a long, uneven journey. Writer Chris Terrio and writer/director JJ Abrams had a difficult task ahead of them in resolving forty-two years of storytelling from many different creators. Did they succeed or will we be looking at 1983’s Return of the Jedi as the true conclusion of this tale?

Listen in as Dave, Arian, Chad J. Shonk, and Head of Research Ryan Schweck analyze the biggest pop culture ending of their lifetimes on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!
