Del Rey has announced a new two part story coming to Star Wars Insider.

We’re thrilled to announce that David J. Williams and Mark S. Williams, authors of the short story, “Maze Run” (that appeared in Star Wars Insider Magazine 131) are penning a new two-part series for Star Wars Insider Magazine. Inspired by the accompanying artwork, created for Return of the Jedi depicting a battle that was never seen in the film, “Blade Squadron” chronicles the story of an elite squad of rebel B-wing pilots on a suicide mission during the Battle of Endor. The events of the tale were written as if they were deleted scenes from the original film, and are rife with knuckle-whitening action and compelling new characters, while the inimitable Chris Trevas will be providing all-new art for the tale. Here’s a little taste of what’s to come:

“How was this possible? How had the mightiest space force ever assembled been bested by a bunch of misfits, rejects, and malcontents?”

“Blade Squadron” Part 1 will debut in Star Wars Insider #149, which goes on-sale April 22.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. I did some catching up, so there are quite a few this week.

Bombad Radio: Episode 129 has an interview with Star Wars: The Old Republic writer Charles Boyd who talks about what the game designers are working on next giving gamers an idea of what to expect in the way of new content, and what isn’t likely. He also mentions the kind of studies they’ve done to studying player’s behaviors, which was pretty interesting. Very informative episode.

Episode 130 is a Star Wars free-for-all as multiple guests all weigh in on a variety of Star Wars topics. They talk about Mark Hamill and Liam Neeson being in The Clone Wars Season 6, Episode VII news and rumors, and lots more.

Coffee with Kenobi: Rebels Reactions #3 features guest Craig Dickinson as he and the hosts discuss Star Wars Rebels. As can be expected, there’s some insightful commentary on the characters and themes of the show as they cover Kanan, Ezra and Zeb (note this was prior to the reveals of Hera and Sabine). I rather liked the observation regarding the biblical sounding names and it’ll be interesting if the show goes any further into that theme. Nice discussion and worth a listen. Looking forward to hearing them discuss the new female characters as I’m very intrigued by Sabine.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #5 starts out with guest Lisa Granshaw (The Daily Dot) and a Star Wars Rebels discussion which also touches on the controversial male orientation of Disney and Hasbro’s marketing for the show. Afterwards special guest Clare Grant joins them to talk Team Unicorn and lots of other fun Star Wars and geeky topics. Great show, so make sure this one hits your playlist.
