The first month of our book club went great! We had over 50 people join and lots of discussion on our Goodreads page. Let us know which book you want to read next.
We are going to Disney World! Join us and a bunch of other podcasters from Rebel Force Radio, Geek Out Loud, Fan Girls Going Rogue, and Star Wars Report as we attend Star Wars Weekends the weekend of May 23rd.
We talk to Bryan about how much he likes the Prequels, Return of the Jedi, and the Legacy of the Force novels. Also how his kids got such cool names.
Chewbacca Lives! We discuss the unconfirmed news that Chewbacca will be in Episode VII and how Expanded Universe fans feel about that.
Book review. Finally we discuss and review the novel Maul: Lockdown
At the top of the show Teresa asks Aaron and Megan about their time at New York Comic Con. Aaron and Megan do their best to make Teresa jealous by mentioning all the cool people they got to meet. You know, they just had dinner with John Jackson Miller. No big deal. The news revealed at the Rebels panel is also discussed.
In response to some listener feedback Aaron and Megan talk about their personal EU fandom and what were the first things they read (Teresa had to briefly drop out but her answer can be heard in the bonus content at the end of the show). Aaron also asked Megan what her hopes are for the future of the Expanded Universe.
Teresa rejoins the show to help review the comic volume Dawn of the Jedi: The Prisoner of Bogan. Are the characters too one-dimentional? Is Shae Koda a stereotypical “strong female”? Is Aaron becoming a shipper? All this and more is discussed.
According to Cosmic Book News, Lucasfilm might be developing a Star Wars spin-off movie set between Episodes III and IV featuring Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and a 5-year old Luke Skywalker on Tatooine.
I doubt this is the case mainly because Disney really seems to be shying way from anything in the prequel era.
