  • We welcome Ariana and Danielle to Resistance Radio, and get them to give us their Star Wars history.
  • Starwars.com’s This is Madness tournament kicks off on March 14. We take a look at some of the brackets and who we think might win each round.
  • A new fan film called Darth Maul: Apprentice has taken the internet by storm. Though, we have some opinions about the fight scene comparisons to The Force Awakens.
  • Looks like that Target exclusive for The Force Awakens may not be so exclusive after all.
  • Bob Iger confirms that the Han Solo movie will feature Chewbacca. Donya offers up a casting suggestion, and we get carried away imagining the possibilities for this movie.
  • Some Rogue One footage made it online, supposedly. We break down whether or not this footage is real and compare it to what leaked from Star Wars Celebration.
  • Here comes the General (rise up!). That’s right, this week’s Spotlight topic is all about Leia Organa.
  • Interestingly, Leia is referred to as General Organa in all Star Wars materials. We talk about this choice, and the assumption that Ben is Ben Solo.
  • We look back at Leia’s upbringing as a Princess of Alderaan, and how different that may have turned out had she been raised by Anakin.
  • Leia is also a Senator. We discuss the little we know about her involvement with the Senate and New Republic — well, until we get Bloodline.
  • In The Force Awakens, Leia is finally a General. Was that a long time coming? We look at how she leads both the Rebel Alliance and the Resistance.
  • How does Leia’s Force Sensitivity manifest? We offer up some theories, as well as how others may choose to use the Force outside of the Jedi Order.
  • Ariana throws down with Mikey over Rey’s parentage – Ariana thinks she’s Leia’s daughter, and well. We all know Mikey’s thoughts.
  • Did Mark Hamill accidentally confirm Rey is his daughter though? Only time will tell.
