Leia, Princess of Alderaan.

Leia is one of the most recognized and revered characters in film, yet we still know very little about her upbringing. From the time she was whisked away by Bail Organa, adopted by he and his wife and then shows up in A New Hope, we know almost nothing (we do know just a bit more now, thanks to an appearance by the rebellious princess in Star Wars Rebels). Now thanks to The Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Claudia Gray, Leia’s transition from princess to rebel is now complete.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by fellow Rebels Christy Morris and Thomas Harper to talk about Leia, Princess of Alderaan. We discuss Christy's first Star Wars book, Leia's characterization, Leia and her parents, from princess to rebel, Kier, YA, the cost, saw, Last Jedi connections, Amilyn Holdo and our ratings.

Phasma.

In the lead up to The Force Awakens, the anticipation for the new film was palpable. Fans were atwitter about everything they were seeing in the trailers, toys and through the media, including one of the most striking new characters–Captain Phasma. This chrome-plated stormtrooper had many fans asking questions about who she was, where she came from and just how awesome she would be in the movie. It’s not an overstatement to say that she was a letdown in the film as she was given nothing to do other than be thrown into a trash compacter by Chewie, Han, and Finn. Fortunately, the rehabilitation of Phasma has now begun. She’ll be back in Episode VIII, she’s starring in her own comic (where she’ll escape Starkiller Base) and her backstory has finally been revealed in the latest release from Del Rey by Delilah S. Dawson.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by fellow Jedi Master John Mills to talk about the latest Star Wars book, Phasma. We discuss our excitement, a character study, history, what about redemption, The First Order, world building, it all ties together and our ratings.
