Riiiiiiiiiiise. But enough about Liverpool’s former Norwegian left-back. Instead, after the amuse bouche that was our mini spoiler special for the ninth and final Skywalker Saga film, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker (both of which launched just before Christmas), here’s the proper thing. Almost two hours of Team Empire sat around a table, banging on about JJ Abrams‘ latest slice of space opera, answering listener questions, and making terrible jokes.
So, join Chris Hewitt, Helen O’Hara, Ben Travis and, now that he’s come to terms with his feelings about the film, James Dyer for discussion of Emperor Palpatine’s sex drive, comparison of the film’s ending to, well, the ending of another recent blockbuster, and a discussion of the timeline of Rey’s parents that will make your brain hurt. Enjoy.
