Tano, I've a Feeling We're Not in Kansas Anymore

Ahsoka Tano had a lasting impact on Star Wars since introduced to the beloved universe in 2008. It's no surprise that the debut of her own television series will likely chart a new course for the franchise for years to come.

Hello, What Have We Here?

"Somehow Asajj returned." Well, we think so. Fam, it's been a minute. We thought we'd get the band back together and fire this podcast back up. The Bad Batch is back, and so is one of our favorite Dathomirians. What better way to kick off a comeback. Hope you enjoy.

HE HAS RISEN / Celebration Anticipation

We're back! Fam, thanks for being patient with us during our parental leave. With grandma watching the baby, we were able to podcast for the first time in four months! It's Celebration week, and the Obi-Wan hype is building. While we unfortunately can't make the convention this year, we're still thrilled to at least listen in on all of the panels and pretend like we're there. There's a lot to be excited about, especially the fact that we're getting the first TWO episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi this week! It's a great time to be a fan!

Zzzzzzzz...Oh, sorry. Just finished watching the Book of Boba Fett Teaser Trailer...I'm kidding...but seriously, guys...was this a little blah for a Boba teaser? Is it just me?

Visions: Reimagining Star Wars | More Prequel Love for Obi & Ani

Visions felt like a breath of fresh air for the franchise. These short stories offered a reimagination of the galaxy through new characters and stories that were unique, fun, and, often times, pretty dark. But it also honored the heart of what Star Wars truly is - a story of family, love, loss, friendship, and hope. We're eager to see more stories like this in the future.

A fan favorite Star Wars game is getting a makeover! No, it's not Empire at War - because that game is perfect. Knights of the Old Republic and all of its glory will be remade, and fans are - well, excited...but also terrified. We'll see what in-house KOTOR crazy Luke Elder has to say about all of it. Also, in Darth Vader issue #14, we learn that a certain pale administrative aide may possess abilities that some consider to be...unnatural. Relax. Stay awhile. We're flying casual.

The Acolyte and Fresh Perspective | "Bounty Lost" Review

Some fresh perspective could be on the way with Disney's upcoming series, "The Acolyte". But not everyone is a fan. What's all the concern about? Plus, the last episode of "The Bad Batch" brought a pretty epic confrontation between gunslinger Cad Bane and the new BA in town, Fennec Shand. Were we also teased with some connections to the Sequel Trilogy and Uncle Snoke?

"Rampage" and Future Star Wars Storytelling

 What appeared on the surface to be a more lighthearted and fun episode of The Bad Batch, "Rampage" exposes the naivety of all of our heroes and foreshadows the upcoming moral dilemmas they're likely to face in these unpleasant corners of the galaxy. Also, is "Muchie" the Rancor from Return of The Jedi? No. But, maybe? Does it matter? The introduction to this young creature sparked an impromptu discussion of Star Wars storytelling, the effects of re-writing canon, and what it might mean for the future.

"Rebel Rising" Book Review | Holly's Hyperspace Happy Hour

We're currently enjoying some R&R on the coast of Alabama, but the podcast must go on! Our book club recently read Beth Revis' novel Rebel Rising. "Jyn is also the most "real" character in Star Wars in that she's not inherently special," Beth said in and interview for her book. "She wasn't born with the ability to feel the Force, she's (for the most part) not surrounded by important characters, she's not a princess. She was never going to be a Jedi -- or a Sith. She's just a person. And despite that, she still fought and stood up for what was right and made a difference. That's a powerful thing. Of course we want to see the Jedis fight the Sith. But we also need to see the regular people stand up in the face of the Empire -- because that's us." We couldn't agree more, Beth. Let's dig into the tragic, yet hopeful story of Jyn Erso.

New "Bad Batch" Trailer | Owen & Beru Are Back!

The past 48 hours have been amazing for Star Wars fans. A new trailer for The Bad Batch shares a little more insight into Clone Force 99's experience around the time of the new Empire. We're also introduced to a new character, Omega. Who is this individual and what will her role be in this adventure with our heroes? So. Many. Questions. Lucasfilm also released much of the cast for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series, and Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse are reprising their role as Owen and Beru Lars. How much involvement can we expect from them in the series? We turn to the comics to better understand what their interactions may be like with our dear Obi-Wan in this limited series.

What If Asajj Returns? | Speculation and Mindfulness

Speculation. It's an important part of the Star Wars fanbase. It's an important part of this show. Heck, we're going to speculate right now with a "What if Asajj Ventress returns from the dead" discussion. But, as we learned from Master Qui-Gon Jinn, be mindful of the future, "but not at the expense of the present moment." Speculation can be fun, and having expectations for a property you love can be great. But don’t get so wrapped up in the “what if” that you forget to live in the now and miss what is going on right in front of you.

What if Anakin was sent to defeat Maul in the last season of Clone Wars?

We're taking a look at Darth Vader (2020) Issue #4, following the Dark Lord down his path of, what one would assume is, his eventual acceptance of the true cause of Padme's death. In his search for answers, Padme's former protectors seek vengeance for their Queen, and honor the memory of the young Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker.   We also checked out the latest excerpts released for the upcoming novel, Thrawn: Chaos Rising. While reading the stories of Thrawn's past will certainly be interesting, would Lucasfilm ever consider incorporating our beloved Ezra Bridger and The Portal into this Ascendancy trilogy to throw one heck of an epic, time-traveling curve ball?
