Disney-Lucasfilm Press is on the ball again, this time with a newly announced Ahsoka novel!

Finally, her story will begin to be told. Following her experiences with the Jedi and the devastation of Order 66, Ahsoka is unsure she can be part of a larger whole ever again. But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa, and the Rebel Alliance….

Revealed by Amy Ratcliffe on Nerdist, the upcoming book will be written by E. K. Johnston and will be out in October. Click here to read the full announcement.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 008 begins a multi-episode on the fall of Anakin Skywalker. In this episode they talk about his conception in the Force and whether that was caused by Palpatine, whether Anakin should have been taken or left on Tatooine, choosing Jedi masters for him, his relationship with Padme and the Jedi’s knowledge of it, whether giving him an apprentice was a good idea, and whether his fall is even sadder after Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It’s a good discussion of all things Anakin.

Bantha Fodder: Episode 6 starts out with some miscellaneous topics, from drones to kidney stones, but things get pretty good when the main discussion kicks in. They talk about whether Rey caused Han to die in The Force Awakens. Did she push Kylo Ren into having to prove himself or did Snoke motivate him to take the leap? They throw down their arguments as each host tries to convince the other. Good one to check out. While there is a good argument for Rey leading to Han’s death, I think she’s more of a catalyst than a cause.

Beyond the Vote: Episode 002 is a solo episode with just Riley following the Carolina debate. I have to admit the podcast just doesn’t have the same dynamic without Scott. Together, they make a great team, but the solo episode wasn’t as good. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
