Surprise! We got another Solo trailer last weekend! It was pretty freaking good, was it not? If you aren't excited for this movie yet, you must be very hard to please! If that's the case, I'm sure the movie will win you over ;)

Do not fret, dear listeners. Ash doesn't actually spoil anyone in this podcast. However, she and Ben spend MUCH too long talking about Argus Panox and not nearly enough time on Therm Scissorpunch. Lots of Solo talk this week! It's gonna be a good movie, folks.

We here at the Skyhoppers Podcast love Star Wars. That much is certain. But sometimes being involved in the fandom gets to be a lot to handle, especially in recent years. That isn't to say that the Star Wars community is all bad, of course! But Ben and Ash wanted to talk through some feelings on the matter, as people need to do from time to time.

Remember that time Ash and Ben talked about Dark Empire? Well, there's a whole 'nother chapter to that story! Dark Empire II picks up where the first one left of. Palpatine is back again? More superweapons? Love it or hate it, Dark Empire II is why we're here this week!

Ben's not here this week but the show must go on so Ash is joined by Kate from But Why Tho The Podcast to discuss women in Star Wars! There's some gushing about our favorite ladies and some respectful disagreements.

Well folks, this is it. The end is the finally here. And boy howdy, was it a doozy. This week, Ben and Ash are joined by friend of the show Jason from Holy Star Wars and NEW friend of the show Lynn from Sapphic Skywalkers! Having friends around makes it way easier to deal with this grief. But in all seriousness, the finale was very good. We're gonna miss Rebels.

Fatal Alliance by Sean Williams was certainly... something. The discussion grows beyond the scope of the novel itself for a while as Ben and Ash discuss some of their feelings on the Old Republic in general as an era.

WOWEE! These were some huge episodes of Rebels, were they not? There's a whole heckuva lot to unpack here, and Ben and Ash take their best stabs at it this week. It's definitely going to be hard to say goodbye to this show, but at least it's going out with a bang. What does Ezra plan to do in the finale to enact Kanan's "one last lesson"? What does the big reveal from "A World Between Worlds" mean for stories in the future?

And so begins the beginning of the end for Rebels. It's certainly a bittersweet thing, but we can be thankful that the team working on the show has the opportunity to end the show properly and give the Ghost crew the sendoff they deserve, whatever that might mean. All that aside, there are finally new episodes of Rebels to talk about this week!

This is definitely the Skyhoppers take on a Valentine's Day-themed episode, but Ben and Ash look at different aspects of love as it appears in Star Wars than you might expect. Somehow Luke and Vader get skipped over even though they're part of the reason Ben wanted to do the episode, but WHATEVER.

Also! This didn't get mentioned in the episode because Ben forgot, but you can now find all of the Skyhoppers goodness you love on Spotify!

Welcome back to another edition of the Skyhoppers Podcast! This week, Ben and Ash discuss the future of Rebels as well as a plethora of other topics that just kind of fall out of their mouths. It's a better time than it sounds, we promise.

This episode is basically the most Skyhoppers episode to ever exist. Ben and Ash finally get to open their Commonwealth Secret Santa gifts, Storms of Crait and Battlefront DLC discussion, and then a bit of a grab bag to close out the episode. The Skyhoppers in their truest form!

Claudia Gray does it again! Leia, Princess of Alderaan is another fantastic entry into the Star Wars canon, and it gives some really great insight into how Leia developed into the person we know her as. If you haven't read this book, we here at the Skyhoppers can't recommend it highly enough.

We're back to our regularly scheduled programming! This week, Alex joins Ben and Ash to talk about The Last Jedi as well as a lot of the response to the movie from different sects of fans. While this movie most likely isn't as divisive as the narrative surrounding the movie has made it out to be, it certainly has some points of contention. However, all three hosts fall firmly into the "OMG IT'S SO GREAT" camp and probably will until the end of time.
