Opening Banter: Everyone is talking about Avengers and all the big news stories this week were around Endgame.

In The News:

In The Mailbag:

    Scott from Alameda, CA writes in “Hey Peter-  So I need to disagree with your and the staff's take that it was a mistake for the screenwriters to kill off Black Widow instead of Hawkeye. To defend this case, I unfortunately need to pull out the parent card.  This movie is very much about parenthood and fatherhood specifically. It feels as if this idea of raising the next generation was quite in the forefront of the screenwriter's minds. To start the movie with Hawkeye losing his family and then to end it by implying that his family came back only to find their father dead would be heartbreaking and devastating. It would be downright cruel. Having Tony die leaving Morgan fatherless brought me to absolute tears. But in that case, the sacrifice matched the character arc. Black Widow (while I agree a better character) needed to sacrifice herself in order to give Clint his family back and allow him the chance to be a father.   As a parent myself, I complete agree with Natasha's decision and understand the sacrifice made in order to allow someone (Clint) to have more time with their children. Keep up the amazing work even if I disagree with your take in this case.”

In The News:

In The Mailbag:

    Matt from New Jersey writes in “Hey,  Love the show, and really enjoy what each one of you bring to the podcast. Great stuff!  My question is geared toward Chris. I've never been much of a horror fan. That is, until the likes of Hereditary, The Witch, Us, and (hopefully) Midsommar. The thing is, I don't see myself enjoying the majority of horror films as much as I have these recent ones. Every time I talk to friends about these movies, they think I'm some kind of horror fan all of a sudden, but I really wouldn't consider myself one!  My question is: what is it about these films that you think makes them more enjoyable to non-horror fans? I'm thinking it's the deeper themes woven throughout the films...something that lacks in a lot of other horror films I've come across. I may have just answered my own question as I write this email...  Anyway, thanks for all you do!”
    Peter’s follow-up question: what are some other good elevated horror films to watch?

Rank #15: Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Theories, Discussion, and News Breakdown

On the April 16 2019 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor in chief Peter Sciretta is joined by managing editor Jacob Hall and Senior writer Ben Pearson to talk about the latest Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker news. We’ll also discuss Peter’s theory based on one shot from the trailer. And we’ll answer your mailbag questions about the final chapter of the Skywalker saga.

You can subscribe to /Film Daily on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify and all the popular podcast apps (here is the RSS URL if you need it).

Opening Banter: Before we get into the news, Ben gives us his reaction to the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker teaser trailer.

In The News:

In The Mailbag:

    Talmerian writes in “Am I the only one who saw the opening scene with Ray as some sort of training exercise? There's just a feeling or look that indicates to me she is trying something new and testing herself.   Great episode!”
    Declan from Toronto writes in “Hey Peter here is a possible theory of how the Emperor has made his return. This is pulling from both the expanded universe and canon. Remember that Darth Sidious (Emperor) was the apprentice of Darth Plagueis, a sith Lord that was so powerful and knowledgeable in the dark side that he could influence midi-chlorians to create life and also keep people from dying. In the expanded universe Darth Sidious learned all of Darth Plagueis' powers and when he had nothing left to learned he killed Plagueis as was the way of the rule of two. In canon you recall in Revenge of the Sith the scene where Palpatine told Anakin about the story of Darth Plagueis and his power. So it's not too far fetch to consider that the Emperor used this power to save himself at the end of Return of the Jedi...just a thought. P.S. Sorry Chris, I have a feeling this will not make you feel any better about the movie.”
    Cade L writes in:
      “1) The planet in the SW:IX trailer could be Yavin? the site of the first Death-star destruction and some Jedi Temples and such (according to some EU Legends). Maybe they're after a holocron?    
      2) Is Endor the moon or the planet? -- I just watched ROTJ again, and I'm pretty sure Vader and the Emperor refer to the planet where the shield generator is and where the ewoks are as "Endor"...I think the moon itself is called "Endor." and although the Ewok Adventure movies are not canon (at least I think they are not) - there are desert scenes in those films...so the mysterious trailer planet could be Endor  Also....let's give some love to the Ewok movies eh?
      3) If Palpatine is a force ghost, that would negate the moral tale within ROTS. That film seems to indicate that the dark side cannot produce immortality, but can only prolong physical life (ugly, hateful, sickly life). Whereas, Qui-Gon discovers that there is immorality with the lightside...through ghost-hood? I think that is an important thematic idea as it further cements the tragic irony of Anakin's turn= in seeking immortality for those he loves through the dark side, he brings them death. Whereas by letting go of life and turning to the light side, one can achieve an "immortality" within the force. Assuming JJ cares about that distinction, I would assume Palpatine is alive physically in IX   
      4) All in all = it would have been nice to have very little Original Trilogy throw-backs in this new trilogy. As it is, Rey, Finn and co. are not going to be given their own story -- their trilogy ends just as their story is really beginning. Having the original characters play so prominently in the new story does a disservice to the new characters. Anyway, Abrams and Kennedy were not brave enough to do this trilogy without massive fan service. JJ tends to do that anyway (look at Into Darkness). Oh well. I look forward to Palpatine anyway…”
