On this episode, Tom Kane, the voice of Yoda in the Clone Wars, stops by to discuss the end of the Clone Wars. We discuss just how much Clone Wars have they voiced, and what we can expect in the future. He shares his dream voice job, which stunned this host who loves squeaky clean heroes, and much more.
Then, Wayne and I dive into Shadows of the Empire where Wayne makes a bad Journey pun, and we have fun discussing this classic in the Star Wars universe.
Then we share an exciting interview for our next episode and dive into our thoughts on the various eras in the Star Wars timeline that was sparked by our Facebook page discussion. You can join in that discussion at www.facebook.com/templearchives

Shadows of the Empire
You talk to most Star Wars fans, and ask their favorite character and no one is too far down that list before Han Solo and Chewbacca are mentioned. They are the pirates with the hearts of gold. One of my favorite character types in stories is the guy or girl who does not want to do right, but they cannot help themselves. They do the right thing even though goes against everything that comes out of their mouth like Mat Cauthon in The Wheel of Time series, and of course Han Solo in Star Wars. Also, I love characters that are completely loyal like good ol’ Chewie. My 7th favorite scene displays both Han and Chewie for who they truly are, and that is why I just love this scene.
This scene comes from Shadows of the Empire. I know what you are thinking. How does this show us anything about Han Solo since he is frozen in carbonite through the entire novel? Great question…The answer is Han had the money and the reward to pay off Jabba the Hutt, and if he left the rebellion immediately after receiving the reward he would have paid off Jabba, and all the bounty hunters in the galaxy would not have been hunting him. Also, Han would not have fired on the Death Star and escaped from Hoth garnering the Empire wrath. He would have continued his life as a smuggler, but Han had to do the right thing, and that is why he is frozen.
So I loved Han being frozen, and his frozenness being a focal point of this story because it is a constant reminder that Han Solo has a great heart. Next, my favorite scene displays the loyalty of Chewbacca.
