Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by comparing & contrasting the trailers for “Star Wars – Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker” and “The Mandalorian.” They then look back at Lucasfilm’s attempt to build Hollywood’s first-ever full-length big budget film around a Marvel Comic Book character


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

How did the British film industry recently recognize Kathleen Kennedy for all of the motion pictures that she’s helped to make in the U.K?

Prior to “Howard the Duck,” which Avenger was the last Marvel Comic character to star in his very own serial

What do John Cusack, Martin Short & Robin Williams all have in common

What was George Lucas’ greatest regret, at least as far as “Howard the Duck” was concerned
