This week's Skytalkers theme is all about different visions of Star Wars.  First, we'll talk to Jim Mello and Alex Ray about their visions for A Star Wars Comic.  Then we'll talk about a vision of Padme that didn't make it into Revenge of the Sith.  Would it have made sense to see Padme with a knife?  We'll discuss.  Then there have been some creative vision issues surrounding the Han Solo movie.  We'll share reactions to the dismissal of Phil Lord & Chris Miller as directors.  (Note: We recorded this conversation before Ron Howard was hired to replace them.)
