Despite dipping their toes into the MCU, DC, etc. the Star Wars content in no way takes a backseat and is just as in-depth and detailed as any Star Wars exclusive content out there...This is a great podcast for those who are interested in Star Wars but still like to have a break to talk about their other favorite movie franchises as well."

Tatooine Sons is a positive, family-friendly podcast hosted by David Jesse and his two teenage sons, Sam (20) and Nathan (16). We believe that pop-culture is the mythology of this generation. There is a story written on our souls. These myths speak to that story.

Star Wars | MCU | DC | Comicbooks | LOTR | Cobra Kai

Tatooine Sons was launched in December 2017 at "Tatooine Sons: A Star Wars Podcast." In December of 2018, Nathan (one of the hosts who at the time was 12 years old) asked Rian Johnson, the writer/director of "The Last Jedi": "What is the name of the porg on the Millennium Falcon?"

Rian Johnson responded: "What do YOU think his name is?" When Nathan answered, "Maybe Terbus?" no one really believed the character would become official. But after a year and a half #MakeTerbusCanon campaign on social media, the character was officially named in the all-ages comic book series "Star Wars Adventures," issues 27-29. (https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Terbus)

Tatooine Sons is hosted by David (the dad) Samuel (20 years old) and Nathan (16 years old). We love how pop-culture helps us see that there is something bigger in the world. We discuss Star Wars, the MCU, DC, comicbooks, the Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Cobra Kai and pretty much anything else pop-culture related through the lens of modern mythology and the "greater story" we believe this mythology points toward. << Show Less

Top Snippets from Tatooine Sons: A Pop Culture Podcast
Not Everyone Loved the Season 1 Finale of Marvel Studios What If...? Samuel the Hutt leads the conversation as Dad sides with him against BB-N* in their reaction to the Season 1 Finale of Marvel Studios: What If...? The Watcher Broke His Oath.

The biggest question Sam and Dad have surround the out of nowhere Gamora appearance, and why this supposedly super-charged "Guardians of the Multiverse" didn't really need anybody except Strange Supreme (Dark Doctor Strange) and Black Widow from the same timeline Ultron won in.

Can Nate convince Sam and Dad that this finale was better than they thought?
Were Anakin and Obi Wan Necessary for the Story of Star Wars? Tattooine Sons: A Star Wars Podcast asks all the hard questions. Like, should Yoda have let Obi Wan and Anakin die? Were Obi Wan and Anakin even necessary for the saving of the galaxy? Is Moulin Rouge actually in the Star Wars universe?
Tatooine Sons Interview With Star Wars Visions Producers James Waugh and Kanako Shirasaki This clip is an interview with the Executive Producer of Star Wars Visions, James Waugh, and the Producer of Star Wars Vision, Kanako Shirasaki.
Dad Moment: HOPE and Why It Matters There’s a thread that runs through each of our segments this week.

In “What If?” we saw how Peter Parker simply chose to have hope that things could get better. It was that hope that kept him calm in the face of superzombie attacks. But it did more than that. It gave him courage to keep fighting against insurmountable odds.

It’s the same thing that fuels Neo in The Matrix. It’s not enough to realize that “a world has been pulled over his eyes.” Once he accepts that, he must have HOPE that things can change. And it’s that HOPE that leads him to fight back.

And the villagers in Seven Samurai and all the oppressed citizens in Star Wars have this in common too. Let’s not forget that the first words spoken by Princess Leia are directed to an old, wisened space samurai when she says, “Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.” Leia never gave up HOPE. It fueled her tireless fight to restore the Republic and free its citizens. Hope gave Leia courage.

It can do the same for us. Never give up hope.
Anything Else? Keanu Reeves in Marvel? | DC Fandome | Star Wars Tales From the Galaxy's Edge Update Fans are losing it over a Keanu Reeves birthday wish from an official Marvel Twitter account; the trailer for DC Fandome 2021 promises A TON of amazing updates; and Star Wars fans are getting the chance to play IG-88 in virtual reality!
Dad Moment: A Father's Forgiveness in Star Wars Visions: TO-B1 by Tatooine Sons TO-B1's failure in Star Wars Visions could have defined him. But the love of Master Mitaka showed forgiveness and hope that released him into his destiny.
Looking Deeper at Ronin in Star Wars Visions: The Duel by Tatooine Sons The first experience that most Star Wars fans had with Star Wars Visions was in “The Duel.” It’s the story of a wandering lightsaber wielder who comes to the rescue of a village under attack by a murderous Sith. But who is the Ronin?
How Big of a Risk Was It to De-Age Luke Skywalker? Bringing back Luke Skywalker in the Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian sounds great... in theory. But Mark Hamill is 40 years older than when he played Luke in Return of the Jedi. And that means the technological risks taken were massive. If Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Peyton Reed and the team at ILM got Luke Skywalker wrong, it would have been a disaster equal to The Star Wars Holiday Special! We discuss some of these challenges in this clip from Tatooine Sons: A Pop Culture Podcast!

Bad News! When we started our show years ago, we stumbled upon a LOT of articles and videos that we're not very reliable; they were just a bunch of clickbait headlines designed to mislead and get views.

Do You Want A Season 2 of Obi Wan Kenobi? This Week on Tatooine Sons:Part 6 of Obi Wan Kenobi delivered perfectly on all of the wishes and desires we had going into the series.

Obi Wan Kenobi is Poetry...It Rhymes We started suspecting it after Part 3.
