Star Wars: The Last Jedi – The Electric Shadows Podcast

Robs Daniel & Wallis take a brief look at Star Wars: The Jedi in this pint-sized podcast. Primarily because they wanted to throw their hat into the ring regarding the current fan fury over Rian Johnson’s Star Wars movie. We’ll do a full review when the Blu-ray comes out in 2018.

For the moment let’s assume the Force will flow strong through –STOP THE PRESS!!– This feature was originally published on 6th December. Since then we have seen J.J. Abram’s movie has heralded a new chapter in the Star Wars saga .

Abrams rebottled lightning, providing the opportunity to right the grievous wrong of the prequels.
