We start off this episode with the group catching up on what they have been up to in the last few weeks, including an interesting story by Ken about a mock trial pitting the Star Wars franchise against Star Trek. Next, we discuss the announcement that Emilia Clarke, of Game of Thrones fame, has been cast in an unnamed roll in the upcoming young Han Solo film. We then move on to our Rebels roundup, where we discuss the finer points of the most recent episode of the show.
After that, we talk about an article that seems to think that Rogue One will feature one of the Rebel Alliance’s greatest defeats. This leads to the discussion of the possibility of an appearance in Rogue One by Nien Nunb, who fans will remember is the copilot of Lando Calrissian in Return of the Jedi.
Next, Mike gives us his unique perspective on the Star Wars Land being built at the Disney theme parks, and we talk about the Star Tours ride as well. There is talk of the interesting Star Wars version of the classic boardgame Clue before moving on to discuss the recently announced Darth Maul comic, and then talking about the comics coming out in the next couple of weeks.
We take a brief moment to talk about the WeBes, the We Be Geeks version of awards, then take a few minutes to move back to comics as we rant about the oft-delayed C3-PO comic that eventually came out this year.
We finish off the show by discussing an article about Wookiees, new stickers coming to Apple’s imessage app, and the release of the 3-D version of The Force Awakens. The crew of Wookiee Radio would also like to wish our listeners a happy Life Day, which has just recently passed.
