Hey, Baron. Welcome back.

Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra, as well as a whole bunch of awesome non-Star Wars stuff) is going to take over the monthly Star Wars comic as of #38. From his newsletter:

Quote:

My aim’s simple – to do what Salva and I did with Darth Vader, but for Leia, Luke and Han. As in, chart the rise and fall of the Rebellion between A New Hope and the Empire Strikes Back, how it changes them all and how it changes the universe,” said Gillen. “So a simple aim, but as nightmarishly tricky to pull off as dropping a proton torpedo down a thermal exhaust port. But hopefully as thrilling if we pull it off. I can’t wait till you see it up. First up: the post-apocalyptic hell that remains of Jedha after the Death Star punched a hole through its mantle.”

Which is basically enough right now, and I will cover my face with the repeat of “pull off” in there, which is what happens when you have to hammer out a quote before tea. Comics! We'll have more interviews down the line where we expand, but that's what we're shooting for, given my own close reading of the movies, the canon and the emotional core of it all.

First up is Jedha, exploring the husk of a world left over after the Death Star whacked a huge hole in the side, and probably speaks to our aims. Rogue One and A New Hope, and rubbing them up against each other.

It's also a clean place for anyone who wants to jump aboard. I build on what Jason has done, but this is as accessible a place to join as Darth Vader 1 was for its run.

In honor of the 40th anniversary of A New Hope, a new anthology book comes out in October.

Star Wars A Certain Point of View has over forty stories told from the perspective of background characters of A New Hope.

You can listen to Yoda's chapter here.

If you prefer the text version I'll place it under spoilers for those who want to read it instead.

Although you should definitely listen to it - the voice narration, music, and sound effects really bring the excerpt to life! :)

Spoiler:

Yoda crossed the room and sat down on his bunk. It was no longer as damp as it had been.

"I am old, Master Kenobi."

"900 years is old."

"And worn-out."

"Not so worn-out as you might think, Master. Where is my pot?"

Yoda looked up at the empty shelf.

"There was... an encounter," he said.

"An encounter? Not so difficult an encounter that you were unable to preserve Qui-Gon's cloak, I see."

"Always with you it has to be both. Difficult choices, must we make sometimes in this world."

"As now, Master."

"Here, you are, for that?"

"Master, I want you to take on a new Padawan."

"You do, do you?"

"I want you to train young Skywalker."

Yoda felt his heart thrill. He did not imagine it could have happened, but here it was!

"Yes..."

"You agree so quickly?"

"Long have I wanted to train her."

"Master, I want you to train Luke."

Yoda looked at the shimmering face.

"No!" he said. He stamped his cane on the floor. "That is not the one. Not ready is he."

"Who is ever ready?"

"Not that one. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment. That one looks from one cloud to another. A Jedi must have the most serious mind. That one cannot keep his mind from his speeder! Hmph. Not him. Her!"

"Master..."

"He will not finish what he begins. He is reckless."

"Master-"

"And well we know, the path a reckless one must set his foot."

The shimmering Obi-Wan sat down on the bunk beside his old master.

"This is damp," said Obi-Wan.

"Bother you does dampness do, Master Kenobi?"

"You'll be surprised, Master."

"For one 900 years old, no more surprises are there."

Obi-Wan smiled, "I promise you, Master, you will be surprised."

"Hmph," said Yoda.

He lay down on his bed and pulled the blanket up around him.

"Already, come the time is, to be with you. Already, come the time is, to become one with the Force."

Obi-Wan shook his head. "Not yet."

"And to tell me this, you are the one?"

Obi-Wan spread his arms wide, almost as if he would embrace his old master.

"I am the one to tell you this."

"Hmph. Impertinent still."

"Yes, Master."

A long silence.

"The other Skywalker, I would train. She is ready."

Obi-Wan shook his head again.

"Hmph! Demanding now, we have become, have we?"

"Forgive me, Master."

"And if I try to teach this rash, this impatient, this mindless boy, the ways of the Force and fail - what then?"

Obi-Wan smiled, "I seem to remember an old master of mine who liked to say something about trying."

"Hmph," said Yoda, and drew the blanket up closer. He closed his eyes, and Obi-Wan waited.

"Send him to me, then," said Yoda, in a voice quiet as a whisper.

Obi-Wan tucked the blanket around Yoda's chin.

"And Obi-Wan..."

"Yes, Master?"

"Sorry about the pot. I-"

"It was old and ugly."

Yoda opened his eyes. "So am I."

"No, Master."

"Look, Master Kenobi, look! Old and ugly! What see you?"

Obi-Wan leaned down close.

"A luminous being," he said.

"Hmph," said Yoda, and closed his eyes again. "Annoying, one's own words to use against him. A bad feeling, I have about that."

But Obi-Wan was already gone. Yoda nestled deeply into Qui-Gon Jinn's cloak. He would sleep now - at least, he would try to sleep. His eyes opened. He probably would not sleep. It was not what he had wished for. Not at all. Still, for the first time, in a long time, he was eager for the next day.

Spoilers from the excerpt below

I love how Yoda uses Qui-Gon Jinns cloak as a blanket.

I like Obi Wan asking Yoda about 'his pot.'

And that it's now Canon that Yoda would have preferred to teach Leia and not Luke the ways of The Force.

----------

I am deeply excited for this book.

Authors include Pablo Hidalgo who will give us a glimpse into the mind of Grand Moff Tarkin.

Other stories include perspectives from Biggs Darklighter to Obi-Wan as he becomes part of The Force.

And there is a story from the eye of the humble trash compactor monster who got disturbed by certain escapees.

The audio book has superb talent as well and include -

Marc Thompson (Grand Admiral Thrawn)

Ashley Eckstein (Ashoka Tano)

Janina Gavankar

Neil Patrick Harris (as an Imperial no less)

and Jon Hamm as BOBA FETT!

You are very kind. But please, Baron was my father, since we are friends, ‘Your Excellency’ will suffice.

Speaking of fathers,

Mark Hamill is one of the best voice over actors of all time.

Just like his father before him, James Earl Jones.
