Star Wars Time: Big Leia Reveal From TLJ Book and John William’s Talks Star Wars Future

In the latest episode of Star Wars Time, Nick and I sat down and talked about all of the great information coming out of the official novelization of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

In particular, we discuss how the book may setup Leia’s death in Episode IX thanks to a passage that explains that he time in open space did more damage to her than we all initially thought. We also talk about a few other book reveals, so if you wanted a bit more from TLJ, it sounds like the book will be your best bet.

We also discussed a few John Williams news blips from last week. Basically, he thinks that Rey’s parents are still to be revealed, and he mentioned that he will probably retire after he scores Episode IX. That’s a huge loss for the Skywalker Star Wars saga, but the man is pushing 90, so he easily deserves the break.

Finally, we talk about a handful of the 14 deleted scenes from the Star Wars: The Last Jedi home release, which include a great Luke/Leia moment that dealt with Han’s passing.
