Coffee With Kenobi host Dan Z was invited by Jeff Dwoskin of the Huffington Post to discuss his impressions of the latest entry in the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi. The discussion includes MAJOR SPOILERS for TLJ, so please be warned if you have not had a chance to see the movie at least once since it opened the last week.
You can read the spoiler-free intro below:
Yesterday I saw The Last Jedi. This isn’t a review. I think I enjoyed it. I say “I think” because when you see a movie with that level of expectations sometimes it takes time to digest and perhaps even an additional viewing.
Instead of attempting a review I felt a need to explore my thoughts and feelings on the movie so I turned to my friend, Dan Zehr. Dan and I met a year ago in London where Gillette had sent us both to be guests at their Rogue One sponsorship announcement at London’s Pinewood Studios.
Dan is a renowned Star Wars expert who is the Host and co-creator (as well as the senior writer and marketing and media manager) of Coffee With Kenobi, one of the top Star Wars podcasts around. Dan is a high school teacher of English, which comes in handy when he breaks down Star Wars since he looks at it like a literature teacher. He’s pretty funny, too, which is evident on his podcast; he’s one of those teachers you wanted to have in school because he makes you think and laugh at the same time. This totally comes through on Coffee With Kenobi. He is so highly regarded amongst Star Wars fandom, as well as in the field of education, that he was one of the stars in last year’s Target Rogue One commercial, “There’s a Rebel in all of us.”. Not only that but the guy lectures on using Star Wars in the classroom, as well as on Star Wars as a mythology. He also hosts Star Wars events around the globe, too. Does the guy ever sleep?
