Film

Podcast

Meta Minute

  • 26:00 podcast episode length.
  • Cold open: Ad for Star Wars Minute mug, available at http://www.starwarsminute.com/merch (RIP).
  • Although several people ha a hand in creating Aurebesh, Stephen Crane from West End Games is the one who transformed it from the lettering seen on screen into an actual usable alphabet and gave it the name which is still in use today. This will be brought up tomorrow.
  • Although Peter Diamond played Native Tatooiner URoRRuR'R'R, that name is now Legends, and the Canon name of this character is the much more pedestrian "A'Koba".
  • Peter Diamond actually passed away in 2004, more than ten years before this episode aired.
  • This is the episode (on the main feed) when the gang officially announced that they would be coming back to do the Prequels.
  • The dude that Pete is thinking of who played only the gloved hands of Darth Vader is named Harold Cole.

Quotes

  • Chris and then Alex: ...You know what? Shove him [Kenny] up under the X-wing[...].
  • Chris: <x3> (in response to Pete and Alex's decision to cover the Prequels) You're making a terrible mistake.
