Ep. 89 - Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Ep. 83 - Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)

This week sees the gang reviewing the third and final movie in the Skywalker Saga prequel trilogy, Revenge of the Sith, as they run through all the movies leading up to The Rise of Skywalker.
