1,749: 7 Explanations for Palpatine's Laughter in The Rise of Skywalker Teaser

Palpatine died on the second Death Star. And if you had any doubts about that, Ian McDiarmid put them to rest. He told The Phantom Menace 20th Anniversary panel audience that he'd had multiple conversations with George Lucas about it over the years, and Lucas always insisted that Palpatine was dead as a doornail. So how are we to explain the laughter of that madman as heard in the teaser for The Rise of Skywalker? Well, between the movies, books, TV shows, and comics, there are at least seven different explanations for how this is possible, and I'm going to run them all down for you today. Punch it!

2,136. Our Final Review of the Final Arc of the Final Clone Wars Season

At Celebration Orlando in 2017, Dave Filoni talked about the then-upcoming season 4 of Star Wars Rebels, saying that it would be the final season, and that he would get to end the series the way he wanted to, which was an opportunity he didn't have with the Clone Wars. Well, here we are, three years later, and Dave Filoni got the "happy" ending he wanted. I'm putting "happy" in quotes only because the end of the story includes the advent of Order 66 and the fall of the Galactic Republic, but I think you take my meaning, right? Clone Wars Season 7, the final season, concluded on Monday, May 4 with "Victory and Death," the conclusion of the "Siege of Mandalore" story arc, the capstone to three in-universe years of epic storytelling. On today's episode of the show, we'll have one last review of the final story arc as a whole, including an exploration of whether the arc was about the Siege of Mandalore in name only; extra notes of appreciation for Ahsoka's stunt double; Mace Windu having had it up to here with everyone and taking it out on Ahsoka for no good reason; and the cliffhangers/unanswered questions left by the ending.
