"More! More! More!" Kylo yells, ordering every gun to fire on his uncle. Chaos, fashion, and Force angst ensue while Luke remains standing stronger than ever. Joining me today is Mollie Damon (Star Wars Explained, A Certain Point of View), and together, we nerd out on the music and sound of minutes 131-135 of The Last Jedi.

  • Kylo Ren's hesitant leitmotifs
  • Poe's leadership and journey, guided by Leia and Holdo
  • Comparison of lightsaber sounds
  • Rey's various leitmotifs and what we can read in her themes (basically anything)
