It’s one week until The Force Awakens opens, and James returns from his virus-induced hibernation to discuss hype and hope for the film with Louis. This is a direct follow-up to Episode 1 (no, that that one) of this podcast, recorded a long time ago – in 2014.

As is typical, Louis pours his heart out over Star Wars while struggling to understand why James retains his cautious optimism. We also discuss what’s different in our knowledge of the movie now versus when Disney first acquired Lucasfilm, and how the lead up of marketing and promotion has carved a path for success.
