Welcome to episode 79 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: The Mandalorian Recap. On this episode, Jay and Dennis make up for the absence of Darth Taxus with their tribute to Peter Mayhew, a discussion of recent Star Wars news, and the conclusion of their Star Wars Celebration Recap. This is a big episode with a lot to discuss!
Remembering Peter Mayhew
The Star Wars community received the unfortunate news that Peter Mayhew, the man behind Chewbacca, passed away on April 30. Dennis and Jay take a moment to share their own memories of Mr. Mayhew. They also share tributes from other prominent actors from Star Wars. So long, Peter. May the Force be with you!
Star Wars News
Two items dominated Star Wars news this week, and Dennis and Jay are prepared to discuss them both:
The announcement of The Journey to The Rise of Skywalker publishing initiative, and
The announcement of the release dates of the next three Star Wars movies after The Rise of Skywalker.
We have a lot of thoughts, so join us for the discussion.
The Mandalorian and Other Star Wars Celebration Chicago Events
Star Wars Celebration Chicago may have concluded a month ago, but the Scoundrels can’t stop talking about it. For this episode’s “Hyperthetical,” Dennis and Jay cover:
The Rebels Remembered Panel,
Jay meeting Hayden Christensen,
Meeting James Arnold Taylor, Tiya Sircar, and Dee Bradley Baker,
The Clone Wars panel,
The Phantom Menace panel,

There is still plenty to discuss from Star Wars Celebration Chicago, and we finish up the discussion on episode 79.
