Star Wars has officially turned 40 years old, and we mark that with a variety of Star Wars topics, including never released toys, a movie called 5-27-77, an interview with the clumsy Stormtrooper, a 40 year old Wookiee apology, and the Lucasfilm proclamation about Rey's lightsaber.  Andy from Holy Batcast stops by to share his reaction to the Wonder Woman movie.  Also, Jeff and Regina share their thoughts on the horror-themed X-Men spin-off movie.  All this, and we apologize in advance for the amount of juvenile humor heard in this episode.
