TJW Podcast - Legends vs New Expanded Universe


Hello TJW Podcast listeners - We have a special episode of the podcast today. Dan and I are back in the studio to discuss a topic near and dear to our hearts...the expanded universe of course! Back in April 2014, Lucasfilm rebooted the timeline and began a new expanded universe in books, comics and video games that would align with stories presented in the movies and television series. Have the stories in this new timeline met our expectations? Do the legendary stories still have a place in the hearts of Star Wars expanded universe fans? We begin the discussion on this special episode of the podcast!

Email us and let us know how are you feeling about the new expanded universe!

Happy summertime!
