The Resistance Broadcast – A Look Back at Star Wars in 2018

Happy New Year! Join us as we look back on the past year in Star Wars! We give our final takes on what we think really happened with Solo: A Star Wars Story behind the scenes between Disney and Lucasfilm, talk about other media that came out from books to comics, and reflect on the past year of the podcast itself!

We look back on the awesome guests who joined us; talk about our speculation hits and misses; stories we broke on the show; and give an overall reflection on the year as a whole. We may also get sappy towards the end…
