Notes

Film

  • Starts with Obi-Wan thanking Taun We and heading out into the rain. Ends with Yoda encouraging Obi-Wan to discover the real villains behind this plot.
  • The landing platform is a real set.

Podcast

  • Mentioned: Pete's accent.
  • Inter-species romance.
    • Taun We & Obi-Wan.
  • How aware are the Kaminoans of Palpatine's nefarious machinations?
  • George Lucas' relationship to the old E.U.
    • For Jacob, the new Disney purchase is like E.U. writers paying all the money up front.
      • All non-Lucas Star Wars is equivalent and not real Star Wars.
      • Movies we'd Like to see: a Jacob-directed Star Wars movie.
      • Referenced: The Massacre of Mankind the official authorized sequel to H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds"
  • Mentioned: Jango Fett's Singin' in the Rain bit.
  • In the script, Obi-Wan calls the Jedi Council from inside while he is waiting overnight to meet Jango, rather than standing in the rain.
  • What do hologram conversations look like from the other person's view?
  • More Jedi ignorance.
    • The Kaminoans should absolutely have a motive for hiring an assassin: Padmé is trying to stop the creation of an army, and they make their living creating armies.
  • Jacob loves that the labyrinthine plot.
  • We have a lot of questions for Jacob tomorrow.
  • Follow SWM on social media.

Meta Minute

  • 25:08 podcast episode length.
  • This is absolutely not canon, but in a mission in the Star Wars: Battlefront II (2005) video game, stormtroopers of the 501st legion invade Kamino and actually fight their clone brothers, destroying the cloning facilities[1].

Quotes

  • Jacob: I'm Jacob Sirof from Dusk till Dawn.
  • Alex: Fire up the email machine.
  • Jacob: Scramble the folks to the old code home.
