The Resistance Broadcast – The Future of Force Powers in Star Wars

Watch or listen below! On this episode of The Resistance Broadcast we talk about the future of Force powers in Star Wars! Should Star Wars storytellers and perhaps more so the story group need to make sure the Force has a ceiling of some sort, so characters don’t flirt with immortality/invincibility? Have they done this already? Do we want the Thanos snap in Star Wars? What is the future of Force powers beyond the Skywalker saga?

We also run through five topics in our segment WILL OF THE FORCE like – will Episode IX footage be shown this month?

As always we end the show with your tweets in #ResistanceTransmissions! The Resistance base is now open, so come on in and join us!

  • Will The Mandalorian be released with a single long-form story, spread across 10 episodes, or will it be a series of separate adventures?
  • Will Nick Nolte have a major role in The Mandalorian?
  • The upcoming third Thrawn novel Thrawn: Treason’s description states: “Set before the finale of Rebels, Thrawn’s Imperial loyalty is tested, he crosses paths with Orson Krennic, and his protégé Eli Vanto returns with dire warnings about Thrawn’s homeworld.”
    Will this third Thrawn book have any implications or hints as to where Thrawn and Ezra wound up?
  • We’ve heard the rumors from Collider, and we talked about it briefly on Monday but this is Will of the Force, so will Episode IX footage be shown this month?
  • Will Lando Calrissian have more than five minutes of on screen time in Episode IX?


DISCUSSION: The Future of Force Powers in Star Wars

We have seen Force powers that we’ve never seen before in The Last Jedi, from a Force ghost manipulating nature and creating lightning, to Snoke bridging the minds of Rey and Kylo Ren, to Luke Skywalker projected himself on to Crait when he never left Ahch-To.

Will we see anything greater than these? Are we entering dangerous territory if Force users can possess “UNLIMITED POWER” as Darth Sidious once put it? Do Star Wars storytellers and perhaps moreso the story group need to make sure the Force has a ceiling of some sort, so characters don’t flirt with immortality/invincibility.
