On today’s episode of The Resistance Broadcast we sit down and reflect on the life of Carrie Fisher and talk about our favorite moments of her life and what she has done to touch each of us at SWNN on an individual level. We kept this portion of the show relatively short, but made sure not to leave anything out and to remember “our Princess” or “our General” for who she was and the real world things she did to make us all smile just a little bit more.



Host: Darth Lexor Kai

Guests: Ganon136, Pomojema, Trevor, Kaytlyn







We will have our Rogue One Review in Part 2 of this broadcast. We only expected to record the review the day we recorded this episode. Upon hearing of the loss of Carrie Fisher, we felt it necessary to talk about that as well in a special 2 part episode this week. Stay tuned as we bring you that review of the film.


As noted, here is an image of our very own Pomojema (left) with Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill back at Celebration Anaheim 2015:

    There’s a part of me that is sort of glad that Lucas will probably be next. I’d feel bad for his youngest child but we’ve seen so many crappy entertainers redeemed through their deaths in the public eye that I think a lot will be forgiven after he’s gone and he’ll be more appreciated. I don’

      We have all too many candidates for who can be “next”. Let’s face it, if the following make it through the next decade they will be VERY OLD, as in about 90 or more: David Prowse, James Earl Jones and Billy Dee Williams.

      I must also mention John Williams (already 86), whose unforgettable scores probably did more to create the Star Wars “atmosphere” than any other single factor. CROSS FINGERS that he will be able to do Episode 9 before his time is up — not because the score of a movie is more important than his life, but because I would like him to “complete” his work on Star Wars by scoring all 3 x 3 movies. He so deserves it.

      And if Carrie Fisher could suddenly pass at sixty, who dares predict when Harrison Ford (74), Mark Hamill (65) and Peter Mayhew (72) will leave us?

      The next ten years will inevitably give the Star Wars fan community quite a few occasions for grief.

        I wouldn’t mind if they scored IX ahead of shooting for a change so he can do that though I’m not sure he would be okay changing his method after so many decades.

    Hey, is there a reason why this episode isn’t available via iTunes? The last one posted to iTunes was Ep 51, December 14.

      Sorry about that. I totally forgot to include the link in the tool. It should be there now.
