Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by talking about how moving up “The Rise of Skywalker” ‘s Disney+ premiere by two months helps that subscription streaming service. They then discuss how the Imagineers originally wanted to expand the Star Wars-themed portion of Disney’s Hollywood Studios


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

How the “May the Fourth Be with You” is possibly linked to Margaret Thatcher becoming the U.K.’s first female Prime Minister

Why Darth Maul’s lightsaber battle with Ahsoka Tana in the “Phantom Apprentice” episode of “Star Wars: The Clones Wars” was especially good

What sort of work is already being done on Season 3 of “Star Wars: The Mandalorian”

How was Obi-Wan Kenobi described in the initial press materials that were prepared for “Star Wars: Episode IV -- A New Hope” out ahead of its May 1977 release

Why is the covered arena that the “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” is staged in probably going to be the very last thing standing when Disney’s Hollywood Studios finally closes its doors
