‘The Last Jedi’ Blindspot + Re-Casting ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy’ in Re’Verse!

This week’s episode features double segments with the removal of Emilia’s Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi Blindspot and the squad’s decade-specific recasting of Guardians of the Galaxy in The ‘Verse! Reeee’Verrrse!

We’re almost through the Star Wars sequels which means we’ve almost completely dragged Emilia from her peaceful layperson status and into the fraught world of Star Wars fandom. During the process we discovered another big squad secret. Our very own SW fan Lucas has NEVER seen Rise of Skywalker so our final sequels segment will feature DOUBLE blindspots! In the meantime tune in to hear Emilia’s first impressions of The Last Jedi.

Next up we each re-cast Guardians of the Galaxy with an original cast composed of decade-specific stars: Lucas with the 70s, Norm with his favorite decade the 80s, Emilia with the 90s, and Bridget brings us home with the noughties. Check out our Twitter to see the final casting sheets!

If you stick around after the credits, you might hear some oldies but goodies…
