Gary Whitta has finished his work on the first standalone film. What does it mean? Probably not that much. In this week's show, we discuss the screenwriter's departure, along with a rumor about Star Wars Detours, a smooth arrival to the world of Star Wars Rebels, and a connection between Marvel's Star Wars #1 and The Force Awakens. Plus, it's our first official live show, so listen for some back and forth with our chat room too!
