Notes

Film

  • Starts with the AT-ST Tempest picking off more stormtroopers in the woods, and ends with the drunk fallen AT-ST blowing up after it hits the ground.
  • 32 ewoks at work simultaneously in this minute.
  • Widdle "Willy" Warrick and Wunka the Ewoks.
  • Stop motion AT-ST.
  • Flitchee with his rifle.

Podcast

  • Why the Ewoks have all these traps ready to go, and how they were able to prepare so fast. They are very organized!
  • The stormtroopers are having a hard time getting around the forest (even though many of the extras were local loggers). They should have called in the log troopers.
  • Willy and Wunka.
    • Wunka and his brother Tokat became gunners on the Alliance cruiser Liberator. Maybe Wunka is firing the guns of the Tempest.
  • The hosts just watched the minute and no one can agree on who is sitting where in the AT-ST. This is why humans are unreliable witnesses.
  • The Endor forest is super flammable, and the Rebels don't really seem to care.
  • Previously uncontacted tribes adopting the worst aspects of Western civilization.
  • Amazing traps
  • Kristen's beverage pairings
    • Ewoks drink a celebratory craft beer
    • Stormtroopers get warm Coors Lite (Editor's note: Ewww).
  • Family friendly deaths. The battle is pretty sanitary.
  • Support the Show.

Meta Minute

  • 24:37 podcast episode length.
  • This minute is a highlight of the movie for Ella.
  • At the time this episode aired, all SWM merchandise was personally packed by Ella. This was prior to the switch to having Teepublic handle all merchandise orders.

Quotes

  • Alex: As with most of the EU, I think that's utter garbage.
  • Alex: If you rounded up all the Ewoks, herded them out of the village into like a clearing in the woods...I'm not sure what you're going do when you get them there...
  • Pete: His [Wicket's] "widdle" brother, who's older.
  • Alex: Can we keep the upward spiral going? Ella: <quickly> No.
