Rebecca Roanhorse wrote one heck of a great Star Wars story with so many characters featured that James and Kyle really didn’t know where to start. Resistance Reborn is a love letter to fans who may be new to the saga, but also fans who’ve been there for the long haul. This book is such a triumph in storytelling and connectivity, so don’t be surprised if James and Kyle gush a bit when discussing it. Bottom line, Rebecca Roanhorse did an amazing job including so many characters while also giving them purpose and not just walk-on roles, not to mention an incredibly compelling story to bring them all together.
Just a reminder, this is a SPOILER filled discussion. In this episode, we touch on:
- Where in the timeline between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker this takes place
- All of the returning characters and their canonical connections
- The disturbing implications of First Order indoctrination
- Will these characters show up in The Rise of Skywalker or is this the fan service we are getting?
- Our heroes finding themselves, dealing with the events of The Last Jedi, and how their stories move forward into The Rise of Skywalker
- Comparable Star Wars novels
