Welcome to episode 3 of the Quarter Portion Podcast, the only Star Wars podcast that will be there for you – Cassian said we had to. Today we kick off our series of movie reviews with the latest addition to the theatrical canon, Rogue One (now on home video).
Emotions tend to run high after the adrenaline rush of a new Star Wars theatrical experience, so we start with a discussion of how our initial reactions have cooled over the last couple months. Then we dive deep into the cast of new characters, the plot, and the movie’s overall impact on the franchise. Throughout we supplement our opinions with tidbits from supplemental material like the official novelization, the prequel novel Catalyst, and the bonus features. The episode caps off with our first listener questions!
Our next movie review will be Episode IV, “A New Hope,” slated for the movie’s 40th anniversary date, May 25! Join us as we review the films in modified “Machete Order:” Rogue One, 4, 5, 2, 3, 6, 1, and 7, culminating in December with our initial reactions to Episode VIII!
