Ep 236 : Peter Sciretta - Scooping Ahsoka Tano

Peter Sciretta and his website Slash Film recently broke some of the biggest Star Wars news of the year with their scoop that Rosario Dawson would be playing Ahsoka Tano in season 2 of The Mandalorian. 

We go behind the scenes on how such a scoop is discovered, vetted and the questions asked before publishing.

Also we get a tantalising hint at some even bigger The Mandalorian casting news that Peter is working on.

Plus we chat about how documenting his 50 plus visits to Galaxy’s Edge has earned him over 100,000 subscriptions on twitter, the best made Star Wars films, the state of action figures and so much more.
