The writer of Rogue One, Gary Whitta, returns to the show to talk all about his latest Star Wars story … Rogue Two.

What follows is an in-depth dive into his piece in the just-published From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back, a further discussion on the importance of hope in Star Wars, and a look at what else he’s been doing since the last time we spoke, especially Animal Talking!

Thank you again to Mr. Whitta for coming back on the show! What a delight and treat, as always, and I can’t wait to talk to him again in January about his next project!

Head to his YouTube and Twitch accounts, so you can check out Animal Talking, and everything else he’s doing, for yourself.

This Friday, at 7:30 PM Central, I will be live on, breaking down Episode 3 of The Mandalorian Season 2.

Head to to set a reminder for this Friday and I’ll see you there!
