Den of Geek’s Star Wars experts cover this month’s news in on the latest Star Wars Blaster Canon podcast. Star Wars Resistance season one has wrapped up, and we devote most of this episode covering our mixed feelings about the series. The show dovetails with The Force Awakens, bringing the Resistance agents into direct contact with the First Order while continuing to try, with varying success, to tell a story about the average citizen of the galaxy far, far away.
Does Kaz work for us as a main character? Paul doesn’t think so. We speculate about what will happen next season and how the show could become more of an ensemble to take advantage of the characters of the Aces. With the destruction of Hosnian Prime and Tam’s defection, the characters have a lot of room to grow.
In other tie-in news, Del Rey Star Wars has announced their first audio-only story, Dooku: Jedi Lost by Cavan Scott. We talk about the format, the current wide variety of Prequel characters, and the dark powers of the Sith.
Disney has announced opening dates for Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Disney World, so we briefly talk about what the opening might be like — and advise fans not to go during the initial rush.
Star Wars Celebration in Chicago is just one week away, so keep an eye out for our convention coverage! In the meantime enjoy this latest of the podcast by subscribing in your app of choice or by simply listening below.
