Star Wars Time: Episode IX Rumor Mill and Potential ‘The Mandalorian’ Plot Point

Hey now Star Wars fans, this is our final show for the Buddha-cast network, so if you’ve been enjoying our Star Wars Time show, make sure to follow us over to, which will be the new home of the podcast after this episode. The Buddha-cast network will continue to feature our Game of Thrones podcast, as well as potential gaming and Marvel movie podcasts, so please stay with us even though Star Wars Time is moving away.


Alright, so in this episode we really dive into a series of Star Wars: Episode IX rumors, which literally blew up last week. There are rumors on Kylo’s helmet, Rey’s lightsaber, the Knights of Ren, potential locations, and much more. We tackle each rumor with our speculation glasses on, and discuss how likely they are to be true or not.

We also talk about a major plot rumor for The Mandalorian, which revolves around a potential bounty he takes on. Apparently, he will be tasked with killing a baby, but he can’t do the deed, so he takes the baby into his care. Nick and I wonder how this may go down, and who the baby may be. We also discuss if there will be a time shift to show the baby as an older kid traveling with the Mandalorian on his adventures.

Of course we recap the latest episode of Star Wars Resistance, and go down a few Star Wars rabbit holes, so tune in now to hear the fun!

Don’t forget to follow us over to when we make the switch. The next episode will be on the new feed, so please prepare for the cutover and head over to SWT today!
