The force is in all things - like between the pages of books! We join AJ in the Escape Pod chatting about Star Wars books today! Star Wars books have had a massive impact on fans over the years and have remained very important to the fandom and the franchise. It's what started the expanded universe and gave fans new stories when the films had hit a void of inactivity. They've provided inspiration for the films, the tv shows, the circle continues... Books have always played a vital part of the living fandom and we're super happy to discuss this with our very special guest and new friend Iain! He's managed to secure himself a copy of "STAR WARS: FORCE COLLECTOR" from his local bookstore in the UK. Listen to Iain give an early inside look at this novel that's available in north america in November. We also bring up some talk about MASTER & APPRENTICE, and DOOKU: JEDI LOST. Thanks again Iain for joining us in the Escape Pod, and AJ for joining the show!

In this episode we chat one on one in the escape pod all about the recent buzz from Bob Iger's new book. George Lucas's feelings on the sequel trilogy, how he was blindsided in a meeting with Kathy, J.J. Abrams and company about going forward with their ideas for what the sequels would look like having not been warned by Bob prior to the meeting. Bob writes about how he regrets not handling the situation better. We piece that together with his interview on Charlie Rose after EPISODE 7 came out and his feelings toward DISNEY there. And talk about what George's ideas for the sequel trilogies would've been, his treatments and the concept art from TFA that was based on his ideas with ties to the PREQUELS. Lucas's sequel trilogy really would have brought it round circle, we miss George and wish him all the best in his retirement, and all the best for JJ as he finishes The Rise of Skywalker in post production.
Our first co-host Reid joins us again in the Escape Pod! We talk about how interest started with Star Wars and then all about the second episode in the Vader Immortal VR trilogy. We review the game a bit and talk reaction, and story points along the way that some to us are still a mystery. We speculate on the third installment which might be released early 2020.
We take the escape pod on a trip down to Nar Shadaa where we meet up our next co-host, Calvin, in a funky little cantina with jazzy tunes. We dive into an article on screenrant.com titled "Star Wars: 10 Times Prequel Technology Was Way Too Advanced", we have great discussion about each item on the list.We hope next time screenrant can come up with some better reasons to dislike technology in the prequels...
We take the Escape Pod down to Tatooine and stop in for a drink at the Mos Espa cantina for a chat with Reid, our first co-host on Star Wars Escape Pod! We talk all about the first episode in the Vader Immortal VR trilogy that's getting released one episode at a time on the Oculus store. Learn a bit about Mustafar, its history, Vader's castle, and the significance of this story in the star wars canon. Come, join us for a drink!
On route to our first destination we fill the time with a quick catch up for those unfamiliar with the terms "canon" "expanded universe" or "legends" within the star wars community and how they're used to reference different types of story content. Brief coverage of the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012 that has relevance to what makes canon today. Going forward these things might be useful to know for the full episodes and it could help new fans to the franchise and old fans who want a quick refresher.
