Notes

Film

  • Starts with Watto recognizing Ani, and ends with Anakin finding out he has a step-father.
  • First mention of a moisture farmer named Lars.

Podcast

  • Cliegg and Shmi's meet cute.
  • Watto's accent. Referenced: Deanna Troi's accent in TNG.
  • Madison was 9 when Episode I came out, so she liked a lot of the childish elements.
  • Watto as the most human character in the Prequels despite being animated.
  • Leonardo DiCaprio was in consideration for the part of Anakin, but he was definitely busy.
  • Hayden Christiansen was young and scary-looking at the same time. Perfect for the part.
  • Ewan McGregor still being interested in being in more Star Wars movies.
  • Watto's hat.
  • Watto seems genuinely happy to see Anakin. Does Anakin reciprocate?
  • What tipped Watto off that this was his former slave?
  • Watto's flies. Shoutout to Steele Saunders.
    • Everyone else having flies constantly buzzing around them. That would be a really dirty Star Wars movie.
  • Natalie Portman's acting performance.
  • Watto doesn't recognize Padmé whom he's met before.
  • The age difference between Anakin and Padmé. Natalie Portman has a young face still.
  • The Padawan hairstyle and clip-on braids. Star Wars fashions in real life.
  • Real life Moisture Vaporators. See this CNN article.
  • Support the show on Amazon.
  • The Wondery podcast survey.

Meta Minute

  • 25:03 podcast episode length.
  • 8-DAY-GREEDO call from none other than Watto himself. Well whaddya know!
  • Madison has not seen Jumper.
  • SNL did an undercover boss with Kylo Ren on Starkiller Base.
  • Orthodontic braces do exist in the Star Wars universe, and were discussed last season.
  • Padawan braids sell on Amazon for about $3–6.

Quotes

  • Madison: My little feminist heart was bleeding!
  • Alex: Be Jar Jar like no one's watching. Pete: Well, eventually no one will be watching.
  • Alex: I do racist impressions in my off hours.
  • Alex: How do I react to this crazy, flying, elephant-nosed, frog man?
