Rebels, it’s time to let old things die! A belated Happy New Year from the Score Guide team, welcome one and all to our 9th Star Wars Score Guide! In celebration of the recent cinematic release, it is time we talk Star Wars Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, and the stellar score by composer John Williams!

Join Captain Wend, his co-pilot Will Dodson and hopeless droid Claude back on board the SSR-15 as they discuss the latest movie in the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi! Supported by their expert band of Rebels*, your hosts guide you through the soundtrack release, discussing, analysing and chestbeating over the surplus of old themes, new themes, surprising motifs, jaw-dropping orchestration and their favourite musical moments from this latest action showpiece!

*We want to give a GALACTIC thank you to our strongest Rebel Alliance yet for dropping musical bombshells and insights that made this episode one of our greatest to date: Dane Walker, Megan Culley, Joscha Sauerland, Jennifer Wolff, Mike Watson, Mark Carman, Matthew Brown and Jamie Burns.

In Defence of The Last Jedi

Welcome to an emergency episode of In Defence Of! We don’t typically talk about movies still in theaters, but today we make a special case for a special movie. In episode 14 of IDO, the team discuss and defend the second instalment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, The Last Jedi!

Your temper-tantrum-throwing, bare-chest-showing host, Andrew ‘Kylo Ren’ Steele/Darth Steelius is joined by the hotshot flyboy, cantina space cowboy, Billy ‘Poe’ Dodson and his sidekick BB-Kitty-8, and a man not afraid to rough it with the boys, kick it with the droids, or fight his way through a whole Imperial Army, Todd ‘Leia/Organa/Skywalker/Solo’ Horan.
