"Legacy" is the second episode of the Disney+ series Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian. A snippet from that episode has been making the rounds on social media, wherein executive producer Dave Filoni talks about the meaning and the stakes of the lightsaber battle in The Phantom Menace. And I thought that's what we'd be talking about today...
But as it turns out, there's also a rather important thing to examine regarding the telling of Star Wars stories with and without George Lucas, and - by sheer coincidence - Dave Filoni also talks about the Vader redemption that we were just talking about on yesterday's show. And it turns out that he and I may have been saying the same thing ... from a certain point of view. Punch it!
