Episode 15 - The Empire

We take on the whole Empire ourselves! The future of the galaxy in Star Wars: Episode VII remains uncertain. What has happened to the Empire? Who rules everything now? Join your hosts as they tackle the exciting topic of the Empire in Episode VII! The fate of thousands of systems is still up in the air, so we try to nail down the possible outcomes. With an expansive discussion looking at the six Star Wars films, the Legends material, The Clone Wars, and even other franchises such as The Legend of Korra and Batman, we try to determine what will happen to the remaining Imperial forces. The discussion then dives even deeper, with a look at the difficulty of setting up a new government and the issues the Rebellion may encounter over thirty years. Can the good guys successfully replace Palpatine? What does the history of our own world show us?

We also make time for the most recent Star Wars news, including the director for Episode VIII, Harrison Ford the pirate, and one rumor that we can't take seriously at all. Throw in a chat about the Rule of Two, a Gungan reign over the galaxy, plus the usual amount of wild tangents, and you've got a jam-packed episode of Far Far Away Radio!

Sit back and relax with Mallory, Andrew, Meg, Austin, and Jason as they talk about the galaxy far, far away.
