Yet Another Star Wars Podcast: Return of the Jedi
Join Anders, Colleen and Daniel as we return to Tatooine and the Death Star to discuss Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Daniel thinks his brother overstated how bad the Special Editions are, Colleen has NOTES on Princess Leia and the Gold Bikini, and Anders notices that this is the time when Stormtroopers go from intimidating to bumbling fools. Daniel is a little salty that the Wookies were replaced by Ewoks but Anders is desperate for the Ewok films to come out on Disney+.
While we all tend to agree this is the weakest film in the original trilogy, we still love it and are interested in how Emperor Palpatine gives us our first real insights into the Dark Side of the Force.
To end, as always, we give our recommendations for content you will enjoy if you like Jedi as much as we do.
