Execute Chapter 66 – Darth Plagueis

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-wz677-e26ff0

The Skywalker saga may be over, but there are enough books to keep Star Wars fans satisfied for years to come. Chad, Ryan, and Beth have started a series to keep you up to date on all the action. Join our book club as we run down the best that canon, legends, and comics have to offer.
 
It’s time to dip our toes into the world of Star Wars Legends. Darth Plagueis is only mentioned once across nine full movies, but his effect can be felt throughout the entire series. The Sith lord who helped make old Sheev the super villain of Star Wars has a pretty great history, and this book tells it well. While it may not have the action of other offerings, it’s so well written that you’ll be able to see why this is one of our favorite books.

Star Wars movies love to just jump right into the thick of things, often without telling us how we got from point A to point B. That’s where novels come in handy. Today we’re taking a look at the novel that bridges the gap between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. If you feel like Wedge was robbed by only getting two seconds of screen time in The Rise of Skywalker then this might be the perfect book for you.

We got a little out of order in our excitement to post the Ahsoka episode. Master and Apprentice explores the difficult relationship between Qui-Gon Jinn and his young padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi as they try to save a planet and princess in peril. Along the way we also learn more about Qui-Gon and his former master Count Dooku. Join us for a thrill ride into far off space with terrorists, jewel thieves, and galactic politics. Okay so maybe the politics are so thrilling, but it’s still a great book.

We were all heartbroken when Anakin’s padawan, Ahsoka Tano, walked away from the Jedi order at the “end” of The Clone Wars animated series. Then we got to be happy again when she showed up on Rebels, but what was she doing for all that time in between? The novel Ahsoka gives us a lot of those answers. Join us as we explore the novel, and get pumped about the new last season of The Clone Wars.

In this episode we take on the new novelization of The Rise of Skywalker. I know we said that we’d be doing Master and Apprentice this time, but with the movie so recently released for home viewing we thought this was more timely. Whether you love or hated The Rise of Skywalker the book does add many things that the movie was missing. Join in as we delve deeply into those things, and how they may (or may not) change how we see The Rise of Skywalker.

Still none of us has figured out why the world cares so much about Eli Vanto. If you happen to know please shoot us a message because we just don’t get it.
