Star Wars Time: Rose Speaks Out, Vader in IX Rumors and Episode IX Set Pics

Star Wars: Episode IX’s production is in full swing, which means this episode of Star Wars Time is packed full of new updates revolving around the final film in the latest Star Wars trilogy. We had a plethora of Episode IX stories to discuss, as well as an opinion piece from Kelly Marie Tran on why she left social media earlier this year.

We start with the Kelly news, and reflect on the bullshit that led to this human deleting her social media presence, and the toxicity in general that has crept into Star Wars fandom.

From there we talked about the recent casting of Dominic Monaghen in Star Wars: Episode IX and how Abrams is surrounding himself with former members of his other productions. We’re both fans of this casting and can’t wait to learn more about his role.

The cast then transitions into a talk about a rumor about Darth Vader/Anakin appearing in Episode IX as a split Force ghost to Kylo Ren. While we like the idea of these characters popping up in the film, we aren’t fans of the notion that Vader and Anakin would be spliced together visually to reflect their dual identities.

Since Star Wars: Episode IX topics dominated this cast, we end talking about how long the production will film, as well as two of the first set pic leaks from it. We got a look at the Falcon in a jungle location, as well as Finn and Poe on some sort of grassy planet. Of course we speculated about the both of them, so tune in to find out what we think is going on in these images.
