In this episode, Like Father, Like Daughter, Becca, and Devon discuss the evolution and possibilities of General Organa’s character in Star Wars: Episode IX. They also go over the final issue of the Darth Vader comic series by Charles Soule and debate the many perceptions flooding the internet. But, before Kanata’s Castle plunges into the dysfunctional family sea of the Skywalkers, they take a quick dip into some Star Wars news.
Recently, Todd Fisher, the brother of the late Carrie Fisher told Good Morning America that there’s a lot of minutes of footage (of Carrie as Leia). This news is responsible for the training and creation of this next episode of Kanata’s Castle. Ok, while that may seem a tad cliche, it’s true, all of it. So hold on to the Force and get ready to pull yourself back in from the blast of this powerful episode, Like Father, Like Daughter: Leia’s Return in Episode IX.
