Rise of Skywalker Fan Theories and Wild Speculation

A month out from the final installment of the Skywalker saga, we take a broad look at the ideas, theories, and predictions about the Rise of Skywalker. Who lives? Who dies? Are the Ewoks coming back? Does someone invent the porgburger and settle on a distant world with a newly successful restaurant chain? We all know Jar Jar is a Sith Lord, but is Boss Nass pulling his strings? We explore it all, and then twist endings to wrap up the new trilogy, all here on Easier Said! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/clayton-james-hester/support
