The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy
S6: Doom of the Jedi

Star Wars: Dark Disciple.

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm in the fall of 2012 it marked the end of The Clone Wars. It was as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in horror, yet instead of being silenced, they have only continued to speak strongly, with the hashtag #SaveTheCloneWars still a staple of Twitter to this day. Since it’s demise, Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo have worked tirelessly to find the best venue for all the displaced stories that were in development. It is no surprise that one of these untold stories has found it’s way into a novel. 

In this supplemental episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing and John Mills dive into the latest edition to the Star Wars canon Dark Disciple by Christie Golden. We discuss a little bit of the history of the book, the writing style, what happened to redemption, Windu, a canary in the coal mines, worthy Jedi, could the story have been about Obi-Wan, foreshadowing, reconciling Yoda, the Jedi Code, an Obi-Wan question and just how good the book is.
