The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”

By Matt Neglia 

In a few days, “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” will be released and thus the new trilogy from the most beloved property in  the history of cinema will come to a close. For this month’s Patreon Throwback review, Nicole Ackman, Dan Bayer, guest Titus Banks and I revisit the 2015 film that kicked off this new trilogy under the Disney umbrella: “Star Wars: The  Force Awakens.” What has our relationship with the franchise been like over the years? How has it changed since 2015 and with the release of “The Last Jedi?” What was the anticipation like? How did it do at the Oscars? We talk about all of this and more for nearly two hours on this month’s review.

This is a preview of the podcast, the full version of which is only available to those who subscribe to us on Patreon. For the small price of $1 a month, you can receive this review along with other exclusive podcast content, so be sure to subscribe here.
