The Resistance Broadcast – Star Wars Misconceptions from Childhood

Listen or watch below! On this episode of The Resistance Broadcast we bring back The Kessel Run where we give you our list of 12 items on a particular subject! This time we list misconceptions we had about Star Wars from childhood that we realized were wrong when we got older. In other words, stupid things we thought were true that weren’t! For example, the second Death Star being the remains of the first! Listen to our list and let us know what yours are. We are all stupid in this together!

This week in THE WILL OF THE FORCE, we ask ourselves questions like – Will Mustafar be featured or used in Episode IX? To close it out we feature your tweets in RESISTANCE TRANSMISSIONS, did your tweet make the show? JOIN US!

  • Set only six months before The Force Awakens, will Star Wars: Resistance have more than one season?
  • Will Darth Bane ever find his way to Star Wars live action?
  • After being featured in the latest Darth Vader comic run, will Mustafar be featured or used in Episode IX?
  • Possible via a flashback or vision, will Palpatine appear in Episode IX?



Our DISCUSSION this week brings back THE KESSEL RUN! The Kessel Run is our segment where we give a list of 12 items (tribute to Han Solo) on a given topic! This week John and James run down their list of things they thought were true that turned out being way off! For example, when John was a kid he thought the Death Star in Return of the Jedi was the remains of the original Death Star! What an idiot! The guys reveal eleven other borderline-stupid misconceptions we had back in the day! Listen in and then of course let us know yours! We’re all stupid in this together.





We pitch a scenario to you, and you fire away! We asked you to name an actor or actress you would love to see in an upcoming Star Wars movie – and what type of role could you see them playing. We had a combination of inspired, creative, fun, and interesting responses, find out if your choices made it on the show!
