Podcast Stardust #219: Rogue One, Part 2 – The Rebel Base

by Podcast Stardust

Our series on Rogue One continues as the Rebellion recruits Jyn Erso to help arrange a meeting with Saw Gerrera.

The opening scenes of Rogue One give way to Jyn’s recruitment by the Rebellion. They need someone to make an introduction to her estranged, adopted father, Saw Gerrera. Jyn is reluctant to do so though. She has grown tired of the war and wants no part of the Rebellion. Mon Mothma, Cassian Andor, and the council sets about changing her mind before she departs for Jedha with Cassian and K-2SO.

On this fully armed and operational episode, Pam Bruchwalski joins us, and we discuss:

  • Pam’s favorite moments and character from Rogue One,
  • The statute of the Jedi on Jedha and how it got there,
  • Bodhi Rook’s introduction,
  • The Rebellion recruiting Jyn Erso on Yavin IV,
  • Jyn’s introduction to K-2SO,
  • General Draven’s instructions to Cassian Andor,
  • Saw Gerrera’s confrontation with Bodhi, and
  • Grand Moff Tarkin and Director Krennic’s meeting.
