Welcome back Star Wars fans! This week we are absolutely jam packed with news and goodies from all around the Star Wars galaxy, and most of the news is about the ever present, long awaited, Star Wars Episode IX!

Before Matt and I go wild on the Episode IX news, rumors, and leaks, we hit our always fun Fandom section of the podcast! First up, as always, is our Top 5 Instagram shares of the week, and I have to say, these 5 are a super fun group of art pieces. Make sure to open the linked post and follow all the artists! We also have some news about a super special event happening in 2019, Triple Force Friday! That’s right 1 day dedicated to merchandise for 3 brand new Star Wars properties. Get your wallets ready. We quickly move into more news about the first ever Hyperreal Hasbro Black Series figure and it is none other than Darth Vader, and we wrap our Fandom section with the announcement that Ian McDiarmid, yes Emperor Palpatine himself, will be attending Star Wars Celebration 2019!

Alright, everyone. Here is the section you have been waiting for, Episode IX time! We have a slew of information, rumors, and leaks this week straight from Star Wars Episode IX. First up we briefly discuss the idea that only JJ Abrams knows the title to Episode IX; then we move into another crytpic tweet from Mr. C-3PO himself, Anthony Daniels. Next up is some rumors about how Lando Calrissian will be used in Episode IX, followed by a rumor that theatre chains in the UK might already have the teaser in their email inboxes! But, that isn’t all. We saved the best two pieces for last. First up is the first major leak from the Episode IX set, and finally a super special tweet sent out by none other than JJ Abrams himself.
