So we’ve analyzed, and hyper-analyzed, and looked for the dogs that didn’t bark in the night, as the Sherlock Holmes Hound of the Baskervilles story goes. And there are just as many – if not more – questions than answers as a result of The Force Awakens trailer. Which we dive into in this episode. Mainly:
1. What’s the status of the galaxy after all this upheaval?
2-3. What are the post-ROTJ fates of the Empire and Rebellion? Is the Rebellion now the Republic again? Is the Empire hanging onto regional control? What’s going on with the two sides?
4. What’s going on with the revived Jedi Order, especially since someone has been cast as a “padawan.” Lightsaber training, here we comes!
5. Where are our heroes? We can assume some or all were in the Falcon, but as of this date, we only have the barest of rumors about Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Threepio and Artoo. What are their roles in the new government – if there even is one?

As of Cyber Monday, I’m proud to be a subscriber to Star Wars Insider. I haven’t had Star Wars newsletters or magazines come in the mail for me since I was a tween, getting Bantha Tracks! And unbeknownst to me, my wife had gotten me their 2015 Special Edition issue as a gift. It’s a fantastic time to be a fan!

Today’s question: What does Yoda tell Luke he will not need in the tree cave?
Hi Allen ! I have been enjoying the podcast. Keep up the good work. When I think of JJ Abrams I can’t believe the director of Felicity is now directing Star Wars!
LOL! Do you think he had any idea in the Felicity days what would be in store for him? Thanks for the kind words, Jim, and for your Patreon support, too!
