Kanata’s Castle #5: Rey Strikes Back!

by Kanata's Castle

Welcome back to Kanata’s Castle! The podcast that’s rated “E” for everyone! Becca and Devon (Red5Mom) are back to tackle the most talked about topic since The Force Awakens: Rey and where does she come from?  From plausible origins and character associations, the possibilities seem almost endless. Who is she? And why was she on Jakku? Tune in and find out on episode “Five,”  Rey Strikes Back!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

A lonely scavenger, “She calls herself, Rey”

           A lost little droid, and an adventure of a lifetime…

A desolate world of sand and ruin, Jakku is the perfect place to hide. The sandy dunes are home to a starship graveyard and to many scavengers, who make a meager living by salvaging the craft burial grounds, but one particular scavenger has a story to tell — a story that has yet to begin…

So you see, the podcast you seek is not behind you — it is ahead!

Kanata’s Castle is pleased to present, Episode V: Rey Strikes Back!
