StarWTF!? Episode 18: Ewok Village

In Episode #18 we talk about one of the greatest toys of all time... as well as a prominent location in Return of the Jedi. It's the Ewok Village, also known as Bright Tree Village! We nerd out a little about the toys as well as the various Ewoks, which brings up a great question. How many Ewoks can you name? Onto the episode!

Bright Tree Village was the name of an Ewok tree village on the Forest Moon of Endor. It was home to the Ewok tribe that helped the Alliance to Restore the Republic defeat the Galactic Empire at the Battle of Endor.

And here's a peek at the Bri'ahlian creature from our game show segment. It's terrible! Even the phot is names "weirdgreenthing.jpg"

StarWTF!? Special Episode: Marvel Star Wars #2

It's February... and you know what that means? Marvel Star Wars is back with a new issue! This snuck out without the fanfare of the first issue, but it holds up very well. The story is action packed and while there aren't as many secret reveals as the first issue, there are some things that are definitely worth noting as we get closer and closer to The Force Awakens.

We also noticed that we didn't mention the cover during the episode, but it's interesting. It's a lot jokier in tone than the issue (although there are a few jokes), but the big difference is that Chewbacca is MIA in this issue! By the looks of it, him and Han would be getting into some adventures, but Chewie does not make an appearance. Where is he? Hopefully we find out in issue 3.
