The Resistance Broadcast – Star Wars Sequel Trilogy Character Development Beyond Rey and Kylo Ren

Listen or watch below! On this episode of The Resistance Broadcast we talk about whether the focus on Rey and Kylo Ren has hindered the character depth and development of our other primary characters in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. We use previous trilogies as comparisons and look ahead to Episode IX, wondering if J. J. Abrams will be able to give our other protagonists enough development to round out their stories with fulfillment.

This week in THE WILL OF THE FORCE, we ask ourselves questions like – will Mark Hamill ever appear in another Star Wars live action production as Luke Skywalker? To close it out we feature your tweets in RESISTANCE TRANSMISSIONS, did your tweet make the show? JOIN US!

  • Will Ezra Bridger’s story be continued in a Rebels animated movie?
  • We discussed this with Collider’s John Rocha with varying in depth answers, but will Kathleen Kennedy step down from Lucasfilm after Episode IX?
  • Will the Benioff and Weiss films be the next Star Wars films to hit theaters after Episode IX?
  • Will the Sith tangibly return in Episode IX?
  • He is currently filming for Episode IX, but looking forward, will Mark Hamill ever appear in another Star Wars live action production as Luke Skywalker?



Our DISCUSSION this week is all about the development of characters in the sequel trilogy not named Rey or Kylo Ren! We are two-thirds of the way into the Skywalker saga sequel trilogy, with one film to go. The focus of this trilogy has been about Rey and Kylo Ren, especially after The Last Jedi, but has this focus hindered the character depth and development of the other primary characters, mainly Poe and Finn? We talk about it from all angles, join us and give us your thoughts!




We pitch a scenario to you, and you fire away! We asked you to tell us what song you think Billy Dee Williams listens to in his earbuds as he is working out! We received a lot of great answers, and as always we picked the most fun and creative ones. Did yours make it on the show? Listen and find out!
