As all of you know, The Last Jedi is here. After a long wait, we’ve seen Episode VIII and we have so many thoughts. We begin to break down the film in our latest episode, including some discussion about Kylo Ren and Rey and what we learned about both of them and our favorites. This is only the beginning of our episodes on The Last Jedi, so if you have any moments or concepts you want us to take a deep dive into, let us know.
What does it mean to be a Force-wielder that isn’t a Jedi or a Sith? In the 23rd episode of Lattes with Leia, we talk about the middle path and why it can be good to draw upon both the light and dark sides of the Force. We dig into what being on that path means for someone’s identity and why “Gray Jedi” isn’t a thing.
The end of another month means it’s time for another Lattes with Leia! For our 22nd episode, we’re joined by special guest Jenn Fujikawa, Star Wars baker and cook extraordinaire, to talk about making recipes as an expression of your fandom. We discuss blue milk, From a Certain Point of View, the Battlefront II beta, and more.
Some of the stuff we mention on the show:
