Another year means a time for reflection, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, one year later. In this episode of Tarkin's Top Shelf, Mark, and Becca discuss the most controversial Star Wars movie of all-time and where their views stand now, one year later. But first, they go over the latest Star Wars news beginning with the announcement of Black Panther's composer, Ludwig Göransson joining the galaxy far, far away to score, The Mandalorian. Following up with the latest comics, Age of the Republic and Fortress Vader. So, hop into your escape pod and ship yourself to the galaxy far, far away, and let the past die. Kill it if you have to. After all, as a wise Jedi once said, "the greatest teacher, failure is," and "we are what they grow beyond."
