Hey now Star Wars fans, we’re back with a new episode of the Star Wars Time show after taking a one week break to recover from mental fatigue or something like that. In this new episode we talk about Mark Hamill explaining how George Lucas envisioned the ending of Star Wars: Episode IX, as well as some details released from the Solo set that may further explain why Lord and Miller were fired from the project late into its production. Our Solo talk didn’t stop there though, because we got some new insights from Ron Howard in terms of where the film stands in terms of its final edit, which was actually locked soon after we wrapped this cast.
So those are our official topics, but if you’ve ever listened to the show before, then you know that the secret sauce is in our tangents. And we definitely went on a big one in this episode thanks to Hamill’s revelations about George Lucas’ plans for Star Wars: Episode IX. Without giving the full segment away, I basically contend that I wouldn’t have wanted George’s vision for the new Skywalker trilogy based on his visions showcased in the prequel films. I love the man like a deity, but I just can’t forgive some of his narrative choices in the prequels, which I still believe weakened the character of Darth Vader for good, due to how poorly his transition was handled from Anakin to the Dark Lord of the Sith. Depending on when you were born, your opinions may differ, but mine are the only correct ones on this particular Star Wars debate.
