The Rise of Skywalker theatrical wrapup - Canon Cantina EP 69
Now that we've both had a chance to see Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker several times in theaters, we sit down to discuss how our views may have changed since our initial reactions. What worked, what did we ultimately come around on, what didn't work, and how could things have gone differently? We briefly touch on the "discourse" and the behind the scenes speculation (the answer is much, MUCH simpler than a conspiracy theorist would have you believe). We can't wait to watch it again. Cheers, and may the Force be with you.

The Mandalorian Season 1 Review - Canon Cantina EP 68
Now that we've had some time to sit with The Mandalorian and watch episodes again, we discuss our final thoughts on Season 1. There's a lot to love, but definitely room for improvement. Mike goes after his cowboy hat-wearing nemesis, and Jesse's optimism remains unhinged. The episode ends with some great speculation about Season 2 - who do you want to see in the next season?

The Canon Cantina 2.0: New Show Previews & Season 1 Retrospective
The Canon Cantina is back! In this episode we talk about some major life changes that we've both had - Jesse had a baby since recording and Mike doesn't have a job anymore (that's ok)! As a result of these changes, we're shaking up the format of the show and are introducing shorter, more focused and concise episodes. We give a preview of some of these new shows, then look back on our successes so far (like the Star Wars Celebration Podcast Stage) and some failures (remember #100DaysofSkywalker?). If you've been a supporter of The Canon Cantina we hope you'll like the new direction of the show. If you're a first-time Cantina patron, cheers to you and may the Force be with you.

The Mandalorian, Chapter 1
Season 1 of the Canon Cantina was focused on exploring the journey of Luke Skywalker through both Canon and Legends materials. We sought to explore the question "who IS Luke Skywalker?" by comparing the two different storylines in the time leading up to Episode IX. Now that the Skywalker Saga is complete, we have expanded the scope of the show beyond Luke Skywalker. Everything after our Force Awakens-style soft reboot can be found in Season 2. Cheers, and may the Force be with you! ___________________________________ Comin' at ya just in time for the commute home, hear our thoughts about Chapter 1 of The Mandalorian before diving into Chapter 2 tonight! Of course we liked it, but you'll hear some actual criticism on this podcast, along with some predictions for Chapter 2. __________________________________________ Join Star Wars fanatics, Mike and Jesse each episode as we breakdown      the character & development of Luke Skywalker     throughout both Legends  and the Disney canon. We’ll do our best to     connect the dots of Luke’s  adventures through Legends/the old   Expanded   Universe to find out how he  differs from the current canon   hero, and   debate which version would  make The Last Jedi better.

We analyze the plot of Dark Empire & the footage from the 2 trailers so far and look for possible connections or ways that Rise of Skywalker may make some Legends canon again. December 19 will probably prove that we were wrong about everything, but it was fun speculation & we have some good ideas for how parts of Dark Empire could appear in the film.

Legends #15 - Darksaber
Season 1 of the Canon Cantina was focused on exploring the journey of Luke Skywalker through both Canon and Legends materials. We sought to explore the question "who IS Luke Skywalker?" by comparing the two different storylines in the time leading up to Episode IX. Now that the Skywalker Saga is complete, we have expanded the scope of the show beyond Luke Skywalker. Everything after our Force Awakens-style soft reboot can be found in Season 2. Cheers, and may the Force be with you! ___________________________________ We're back with part 2 of the Callista "trilogy" and oh boy... it's uh, something. We promise this will be over soon! We also talk about updates to Battlefront II and do some character-specific speculation for Rise of Skywalker. Check out our social media for an important message regarding our summer schedule. Cheers, and MTFBWY!  ____________________________  Join Star Wars fanatics, Mike and Jesse each episode as we breakdown the character & development of Luke Skywalker throughout both Legends and the Disney canon. We’ll do our best to connect the dots of Luke’s adventures through Legends/the old Expanded Universe to find out how he differs from the current canon hero, and debate which version would make The Last Jedi better.

This week it's Jesse who's slinging hot takes, we talk about some bad #StarWars physics, a budget conscious quest-giving Admiral Ackbar, and a band that only a deathstick-loving Sleazebaggano would love - Hakko Drazlip & the Tootle Froots! ...it gets weird, people. Mike also realized that less than half of our listeners use Apple Podcasts, so we've cut the goal to releasing our Force Awakens commentary in half! Help us hit 25 ratings on iTunes, and we'll release our Force Awakens watch-along commentary! No Patreon paywall, just help us spread the word and this episode will be immediately available. No need to write a review, just click a star rating.

Cheers, and may the Force be with you! ___________________________________ For the past few days we were both in Tulsa, so we've decided to push our Truce at Bakura episode back a week and share some extra content that we recorded from Jesse's couch. This week we talk about the Star Wars Resistance trailer, the overwhelmingly negative reviews for it on Youtube, and our thoughts on the series a little more than a month before it airs. We also rank the 5 aliens absent from the sequel trilogy (so far) that we wish we could see more of. We recorded some other bonus content, and the first that we want to share with you is a listen-along commentary to The Force Awakens! As soon as we hit 50 ratings on iTunes, we'll release this episode right away - that's just clicking a star rating, not writing a review. All we ask is that if you leave a 1 or 2 star review you leave a comment telling us why so that we can try to improve the show. No Patreon paywall, just help us spread the word and this episode will be immediately available. For those who don't use the Apple podcast app, here's a link to a page where (I think) you can leave a rating https://apple.co/2mIhyCw We'll hop back on our regular schedule next week with The Truce at Bakura! ___________________________________  Join Star Wars fanatics, Mike and Jesse each episode as we breakdown the character & development of Luke Skywalker throughout both Legends and the Disney canon.

Marvel Star Wars: Showdown on the Smuggler's Moon
Season 1 of the Canon Cantina was focused on exploring the journey of Luke Skywalker through both Canon and Legends materials. We sought to explore the question "who IS Luke Skywalker?" by comparing the two different storylines in the time leading up to Episode IX. Now that the Skywalker Saga is complete, we have expanded the scope of the show beyond Luke Skywalker. Everything after our Force Awakens-style soft reboot can be found in Season 2. Cheers, and may the Force be with you! ___________________________________ This week we continue exploring Marvel's Star Wars comics run with issues 7-12, an arc titled "Showdown on the Smugglers Moon." This episode brings some surprising new underworld characters (including a buff Hutt!), Jedi paraphenelia, Jesse thinking that every callback or reference is poetry, and Mike identifying a flaw in Obi-Wan (why is he in cantinas so often?!?!? just sayin'). We also talk about upcoming Canon novels, tabletop gaming news from GenCon, Star Wars content intended for younglings, and investigate the results of a recent twitter poll! ___________________________________  Join Star Wars fanatics, Mike and Jesse each episode as we breakdown the character & development of Luke Skywalker throughout both Legends and the Disney canon. We’ll do our best to connect the dots of Luke’s adventures through Legends/the old Expanded Universe to find out how he differs from the current canon hero, and debate which version would make The Last Jedi better.

Around the 1:45 mark we talk #CloneWarsSaved, and Mike just might have made himself public enemy #1 to Dave Filoni, Clone Wars fans, and Prequelists alike. We wrap the show up by talking about the future of Star Wars Battlefront II. It's our longest episode yet and jam-packed with (quality?) Star Wars content - we hope you enjoy your time here in the Canon Cantina!  ___________________________________  Join Star Wars fanatics, Mike and Jesse each episode as we breakdown the character & development of Luke Skywalker throughout both Legends and the Disney canon.
