The Secret Society of the Naboo Handmaidens, who are they? How does one become part of their sorority? Well, Kanata’s Castle is ready to explore this secret coven as they continue their journey of Women in the Galaxy far, far away. But first, Becca, and Devon go-over some Star Wars news starting with, Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures, JAT returning as General Kenobi, and the latest continuity connections from Star Wars Resistance.
In this episode, your hosts continue their endeavor of expounding upon the Women in the Star Wars universe. This time, they take a gander at the secret sorority of the “Queen’s Shadows,” the handmaidens, through a speculative lens. After all, it is still unclear how they came to be. How does one get elected into such an organization? Or, is it a birthright? So many questions and very little knowledge is up for the taking, but not knowing is half the fun. So, sidle-up to the bar and get yourself a cold one, then settle in for some exploratory conversation on the secret sorority of the Naboo Handmaidens.
