Podcast Stardust #62: Resistance Reborn

by Podcast Stardust

On the latest fully armed and operational edition of the podcast, we review Rebecca Roanhorse’s Star Wars: Resistance Reborn – part of the journey to The Rise of Skywalker.

As with The Force Awakens and The Last JediThe Rise of Skywalker had a tie-in publishing initiative full of novels and books that offered clues and hints as to what was to come in the movie. In this episode of Podcast Stardust, Dennis and Jay take a look at Resistance Reborn, by Rebecca Roanhorse, and discuss how the Resistance began to recover from their defeat at the hands of the First Order during the Battle of Crait from The Last Jedi.

On this episode, we discuss:

  • The work of Black Squadron,
  • The focus on Poe Dameron and General Organa,
  • The surprise reveal of a character on Ryloth that wasn’t as big as the leadup,
  • The First Order presence being confined to minor characters,
  • The inclusion of characters from Poe Dameron, Battlefront II, Bloodline, and other stories, and
  • The rescue of an unexpected character and a list of important prisoners.
