About once a month Paxton Holley reads a movie novelization and then records a run-through on what the novelization includes, adds, and changes from the source material on his podcast I Read Movies. If you’ve listened to Episode 38 of Hyperspace Theories you know Tricia, B.J. and I gave an overview of our general feelings towards The Last Jedi: Expanded Edition as well as a few likes and dislikes.
This month Pax invited me on his show to take a much deeper dive into that same novelization. In an episode appropriately titled “Star Wars – The Last Jedi (2018) by Jason Fry”, Pax and I take it all in chronologically – plot moment by plot moment. I attempt to remember exactly which scenes can also be seen on the home release’s deleted scenes. We have fun noting our favorite added dialogue. And we turn our critical eye on how additions help or hinder characters.
You can listen to Pax and I discuss Star Wars with more people than just each other on the Nerd Lunch podcast by exploring the Nerd Lunch tag right here on FANgirl.
