We’re No Scoundrels – SWBTF #56

Play

Timothy Zahn, Scoundrels, Black Sun, Ocean’s 11, 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, your EU Guru; Nathan P. Butler, and The Defender of the EU; Mark Hurliman, sit down to discuss Timothy Zahn’s latest foray into the Star Wars Expanded Universe; Star Wars: Scoundrels. Strap in and tighten your crash webbing, Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on another rapid-fire trip into the galaxy far, far away!

Your hosts start out discussing the cover- and how certain characters (Kell and Winter specifically) do NOT look correct.

What is THIS?!?! Nathan ENJOYED a recent Zahn novel?! Sure enough,and Mark is in the opposite seat this time. Come listen as the two trade positions this time. Mark struggles with his feelings over this book, and analyzes his past Zahn book experiences to better understand why he didn’t like the book as much as he was hoping he would.

They also discuss the characters at this time frame, and how “in characters” those characters are, or aren’t.

SPOILER WARNING: Book’s MAJOR SPOILER is revealed at 44:40 in. There is a second warning right before the hosts talk about it.

Once again, your dynamic duo cover entirely too much Scoundrel action in their ONE hour, 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!

Timothy Zahn chats about Scoundrels and more

Del Rey hosted a Facebook chat with Timothy Zahn for Scoundrels yesterday.

Actually, I think Disney will do right by LFL. Their record with Pixar and Marvel indicates they know how to step back and let the people who know what they’re doing just do it. With Kathleen Kennedy now helming LFL, and with all the wonderfully talented people already in place there, I’m expecting good things to come. Of course, if Disney decided they wanted a couple of TV shows, and just *happened* to think of Mara Jade or the Hand of Judgment, I would certanly not stand in their way.

As to whether any of my characters might show up in the sequels: Again, no idea what’s being planned, but I would naturally love to see something I’ve done up there on the Big Screen.
