Insights Into Entertainment: Episode 47 "Nothing But Star Wars"

Returning from the holiday we give you a deep dive into our adventures at Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We look at the overall ambiance, the vendors, the rides and the completely immersive feeling of actually being on the planet Batuu. It’s one of the most unique experiences we’ve ever had in over twenty trips to Walt Disney World in Florida. We’ve got footage of the experience, interactions with cast, building a lightsaber at Savi’s workshop and much of the Rise of the Resistance ride.

In entertainment news we’ll recap what was an incredible season finale of the Mandalorian then give our impressions, though not our rant on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. A fitting end to the saga that could have been a little more polished for our liking. All in all another great podcast.
