The Star Wars sequel trilogy has come to an end with The Rise of Skywalker, and The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular is ON IT. Podcast diad Glenn & Scott welcome Alanna Kelly back to the show to cover all aspects of the new film, starting with a non-spoiler review to open the show. After that, they discuss how this movie treats its many characters, which storylines worked and which ones didn’t, and whether or not this is a satisfying conclusion to The Skywalker Saga. Don’t miss Alanna’s reaction to certain character developments, Glenn’s desperate search for hope, and Scott’s favorite part of the movie. Plus, it wouldn’t be a Star War without gratuitous cameos! (Spoilers begin after 16:00.)
Note: the traditional Spectacular score analysis will be included in a final wrap-up episode of our Star Wars Scores series, coming soon to Place to Be Nation Pop and all fine RSS readers near you.
