Star Wars Blaster Canon Podcast: Rogue One, The Mandalorian, Thrawn: Treason, Age of Republic

Each month, the hosts of our Star Wars podcast, Megan, Paul, and Saf, take on the latest topics in the Expanded Universe, on television, and in the theater on Star Wars Blaster Canon.

With the Cassian Andor television series coming to Disney +, our Star Wars podcast hosts revisit Rogue One and Cassian’s character in particular on this month’s episode of Blaster Canon. What might the TV show be about? What is the “secret weapon” that makes Rogue One so good?

We take another look at the symbolism in Rogue One, particularly the contrast between Jyn and Cassian. Additionally, we examine how Rogue One takes a unique look at the Force, and discuss whether the movie might actually have a more “Force-ful” story than The Force Awakens. Plus, how could Rogue One have gone differently if Cassian had made different choices?

In other Star Wars news, we cover the newly confirmed cast of The Mandlorian , upcoming books including Thrawn: Treason, and the Flight of the Falcon middle grade series, including Pirate’s Price and Lando’s Luck.
