Resistance Radio hosts Mikey and Donya are joined by Eric and Jeanna to discuss the latest Rogue One developments and this week’s Spotlight topic, Watto.
- We’ll be at Indy PopCon between June 17 and 19. We’re hosting a Star Wars panel with Indiana’s 501st, as well as doing a live podcast and other shenanigans.
- If you’re able to make it to PopCon, we’ll have some awesome Resistance Radio merch for sale at our table!
- Rogue One is heading into reshoots. Should we be concerned?
- Want your very own mangled Vader helmet? Now you don’t need to be Kylo Ren! Propshop and Lucasfilm have launched the Ultimate Studio Edition of Star Wars prop collectibles.
- The Han Solo movie is heading into development in early 2017. Some of us are still on the fence about the necessity of a Han Solo spinoff.
- Remember that rumor about Tom Hardy as an ass-slapping Stormtrooper? Looks like there’s more credibility to it than we originally thought.
- Han Solo’s death affected plenty of Star Wars fans, now Daisy Ridley has opened up about filming it on the Force Awakens set.
- Ever wished you were a fly on the wall at some of the Star Wars casting auditions? Daisy Ridley and John Boyega recreated some on SNL.
- Our Spotlight topic for this week is all about Watto.
- Why Watto? Er, well. Apparently that’s all on Eric.
- We get into a slightly heated debate about whether Watto is a father figure to Anakin.
- Republic Credits aren’t good for Watto, only money – we discuss his business practices.
- How about his gambling problem? Both Watto and Qui-gon cheated – we compare their motivations.
- Was Watto genuinely glad to see Anakin when he returned, or was he seeking opportunity?
