Thanks to the support of our patrons, Mollie and I have built Star Wars Explained into a channel we are very proud of. In addition to continuing to keep up with and cover every new Star Wars story every single week, we want to begin developing more content for you, our supporters! We also want to continue improving the quality of our channel by bringing on more staff to help with editing and designing so I can keep my focus on explaining Star Wars!


Your donations, first and foremost, make sure we aren’t reliant on the whims of YouTube. We very rarely produce sponsored content because we don’t have to. We can keep our videos focused on Star Wars without any fluff or irrelevant ads. Your continued support means we can keep making the kind of content we want without having to appeal to what YouTube’s algorithm wants. Instead we can keep focusing on what you want!


I'm currently offering seven tiers of rewards, which you can read about below!

Force Sensitive
For $1.00 a month you will be able to ask questions that I will answer in our weekly Q&A! Ask about Star Wars or personal questions, anything you want! I will pick five Patron questions every week to answer in the video. I will also write responses to every single question asked each week. Finally, you will receive access to Patron-exclusive content like audio commentaries for the movies, new content reactions detailed in the Goals section, and more!

Youngling
For $2.00 a month you will get the same benefits as the $1.00 tier as well as access to our new weekly TV audio commentary series! Every single week we will release a commentary for an episode of The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance, or The Mandalorian when it starts to come out. Movie commentaries are still available to all patrons.

Padawan
For $5.00 a month you will get the same benefits as the previous tiers as well as access to an exclusive live stream every month! We can play through games together like a live version of our Lore Plays with a less hectic chat room. It will be much easier for me to answer your questions! I will stream at least once every month for at least an hour.

Jedi Knight
For $10.00 a month you will get the same benefits as the previous tiers as well as an exclusive behind the scenes video every month. Mollie and I will talk about what it’s like working as YouTubers. We’ll document day-to-day activities, studying for Schmoedowns, local Star Wars-related events, and anything else you'd like to see!

Jedi General
For $25.00 a month you will get the same benefits as the previous tiers, and you will be listed and thanked in every video we produce that month! During our end cards on YouTube your name or screen name (within reason) will scroll by as one of our Jedi General level Patrons.

Jedi Master
For $50.00 a month you will get the same benefits as the previous tiers, you will be distinguished as a Jedi Master in our credits, I will thank you by name in a video, and you will sponsor a new, monthly series called Beyond the Stars, where Mollie, myself, and maybe guests will discuss fandoms outside of Star Wars, chosen in a monthly vote by you!

Jedi Council
For $100.00 a month, you will get the same benefits as the previous tiers, you will be distinguished as a Jedi Council Member in our credits, and you will become a part of the new and improved Jedi Council! I am limiting this tier to twelve members, just like the real Jedi Council. Once a month the Council will convene to discuss the past, present, and future of Star Wars Explained. I want to hear your feedback as well as ideas for what you’d like to see us cover as we continue to develop our content.


$3750/month
We will begin a chronological rewatch of The Clone Wars, covering every episode of the series as we await the next season of the show! We will also do an audio commentary for Solo: A Star Wars Story, available to all our Patrons!

$4000/month
We will begin producing reaction videos to the comics, which usually come out every Wednesday. These videos will only be available to our Patrons. We will also do an audio commentary for The Clone Wars movie, available to all our Patrons!

$4250/month
We will begin producing reaction videos to new TV episodes as they are released. These videos will only be available to all our Patrons. We will also do an audio commentary for Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, available to all our Patrons!

$4500/month
We will begin producing reaction videos to new Star Wars novels as they are released. These videos will only be available to all our Patrons. We will also do an audio commentary for Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, available to all our Patrons!

$4750/month
We will begin releasing our Between Two Suns podcast on our YouTube channel as an officially Patron-sponsored series. We will also do an audio commentary for the Star Wars Holiday Special. God help us all.


Please don’t feel obligated to donate. We’ve had a number of people apologize for not being patrons, and that is absolutely not necessary. If you’re a fan of what we do, and want to help us grow Star Wars Explained into something larger, this is the best way to do that. But if you are unable to support us here, please never feel guilty about that. Whether you decide to pledge on Patreon or not, thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Your support means the world to us!

May the Force be with you,

Alex and Mollie
