Star Wars Time Show: New TLJ Character Bios, Luke’s Saber Tease, and Rian’s Joy

In the latest episode of our Star Wars Time Show Nick and I cover a gamut of topics that are all rooted in Star Wars: The Last Jedi news.

We kickoff the conversation with a lengthy discussion on a series of new character bios posted on the official Japanese Star Wars site. The site listed updated bios for nearly every main character in The Last Jedi, but only a few provided new insights. We focus on Rey, Kylo, Maz, and Poe, namely because their bios offered up the most intriguing new details. Poe in particular has the most interesting bio, because it hints that both the First Order and the Resistance are fearful of his tactics.

Once we get through the updated bios we talk about a new Alamo Drafthouse promotion that revealed a potential spoiler about Luke Skywalker. Turn away if you’re avoiding all potential spoilers, but the image showed Luke with his old blue lightsaber ignited while still wearing his TFA garb.

Finally, we appreciate the USA Today featurette from last week that starred Rian Johnson, the Director of The Last Jedi. We couldn’t help but enjoy the pure giddiness that Johnson exhibited in the video while talking about working in the Star Wars universe. He just seems so damn genuine, and based on the cast interviews, he truly is and also doesn’t have many directorial faults.
