Notes

Film

  • Starts with Obi-Wan being relentlessly pursued by a rocket, and ends with Jango landing on Geonosis, secure in the knowledge that he has destroyed Obi-Wan.
  • R4-P17

Podcast

  • Thanks to and from Madison for the week!
  • How would Obi-Wan have gotten Jango back to Coruscant with his tiny one-man fighter?
  • "Watch out!" as Boba Fett's sitcom catchphrase.
  • Will Disney release a Prequel-heavy anthology film? Maybe based around Boba Fett.
  • R4 facts:
    • Attached to the ship by Anakin Skywalker.
    • Lost her body in a garbage masher accident.
    • An earlier draft had R4 chained to a post in the execution arena on Geonosis along with the Jedi.
  • Why didn't Jango start by using the missile instead of his other weapons? To teach Boba.
  • Why the Jedi starfighter flickers out as if it had been destroyed. Is Obi-Wan using the Force to evade detection?
  • If Obi-Wan shut his ship down, does that include shutting R4 down as well? Parallel to C-3PO when the Falcon is in the asteroid field.
  • Speculation that this experience allowed Boba Fett to locate the Falcon later in life.
  • What are the spare parts comprised of? R4's bottom half?
  • The old "@ @" vs. "A-T-A-T" (vs. "Imperial Walker") debate.
  • Madison shares her toy memories.
    • Her mother's cabinet full of Yoda memorabilia.
  • Madison grew up next door to the Hamills!
  • Support the Show on Patreon, and fill out the Wondery survey.

  • Pete: I think she's [R4] turned off by the whole thing. Madison: She's just so not into it.
