In a phenomenal show of self-control, @Misty has gone an entire year without a Star Wars related episode -- but with the release of a new The Force Awakens trailer, the KH-Vids Podcast ( @Misty, @libregkd, @Calxiyn, and staff guest @Knight of Fafnir ) climbs in the Millennium Falcon for a return journey to a galaxy far, far away!
As per usual we begin by covering some Kingdom Hearts news; in an interview with Famitsu, Tetsuya Nomura confirmed that development on Kingdom Hearts III is proceeding smoothly, and hinted at a future smartphone entry for the series, to be announced at this year's D23 Expo Japan. We speculate on just what that title will be and the possibility of a Kingdom Hearts release in 2015.
We dive into an in-depth breakdown and analysis of The Force Awakens, speculating on the plot and characters revealed in the short teaser, our expectations and hopes for the return of old characters (Luke, Leia, and Han Solo), join the BB-8 fan train, and allow ourselves to entertain the fantasy of a Knights of the Old Republic connection in Kylo Ren's mask. Unveiled along with the teaser was also the new Star Wars: Battlefront; we cover the specifics of it and predict that it will dominate holiday sales this year.
Finally we answer user-submitted questions! @Scarred Nobody accuses The Force Awakens of being pure fanservice, @Quilligan asks us to evaluate acceptable social behavior and which fictional characters we relate to most, and @Graxe pulls us into the slightly horrifying lore of Bloodborne.
