Revan’s Fate, The Emperor’s past revealed, Mandalore’s Mask found, the Exile named, and more, all on the next Star Wars Beyond the Films. YOUR Star Wars discussion podcast! YOUR ticket to the EU!

This week true believers, Beyonders, Fanboys, Fangirls, respected aliens around the galaxy, The Defender of the EU: Champion of the Multiverse; Mark Hurliman, and your EU Guru: The Count of Continuity; Nathan P. Butler, sit down to continue their in-depth discussion of Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan, this time focusing on Part 2 of the novel. So strap in and tighten your crash webbing Fandom, Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on another rapid-fire trip into the galaxy far, far away!

They guys start our discussing some funny events going on in their lives. Nathan then sets the chronological tone once again. He focuses on things like, how does part 2 fit with part 1 and events in the galaxy, as well as both Kotor games, and then once more with the comics and the TOR MMO? Nathan lays it all out for you. Mark has a special treat to help set the mood of the second half, kind of like a “previously on” kind of thing, but for the story Revan itself. And for those of you ever curious about Audio books, you will want check it out.

They discuss a ponder about part 2 being the part of the book that fans didn’t like. There seems to be a divided reaction in Fandom when it comes to Revan and this book.

After the audio clip they jump to the end of Part One, touching on Revan capture, and how the Sith Emperor used Revan to continue to garner fear in his minions, by his explanation of Revan to the Sith Empire, Revan the Republic Spy.

Nathan explains the Exile, and how her Gender and Name became canon. As well as her look. and how all of this effected the novel. But by building her up, did they tear down Bastila to do so?

You will want to give the episode your full attention Fandom, your Guru and Defender mine the heck out of this one.

Once again, your dynamic duo cover entirely too much Old Republic action in their ONE hour, so they said to the 9 hells with it and threw out that rule, but don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on the EU while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
