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

Why members of the 501st Legion were surprised when they arrived on the set of “Star Wars: The Mandalorian”

What inspired the team behind “Star Wars: Battlefront II” to develop a new flight combat game

Why screenwriter David Koepp was actually kind of relieved when he was allowed to step away from “Indiana Jones V”

How many LEGO pieces are there in the Mandalorian Razor Crest kit

Why -- given the cancellation of this year’s Star Wars Celebration & the postponement of Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite -- it shouldn’t be a surprise that the Disneyland Resort just pushed back its phased re-opening
