The Story Geeks with Jay Sherer

Aftercast: Canto BITES? How to make The Last Jedi better.

November 13, 2019

On today's Aftercast... Daryl and Jay love the Disney Star Wars Sequel Trilogy thus far (THE FORCE AWAKENS and THE LAST JEDI), but if we HAD to find a way to make it better... what would we do? Here are some of the topics from today's Aftercast:

  • Is "bathos" overused inTHE LAST JEDI?
  • Was THE FORCE AWAKENS too derivative or was it paying homage?
  • Why don't we like Canto Bight? And how could we make that better?
