Tarkin’s Top Shelf #26: The Last Jedi and the Brightest Light Casts the Darkest Shadow!

Welcome to another edition of Tarkin’s Top Shelf! In this episode, Becca invites Ryder Waldron from Idiot’s Array podcast to join her in a thought-provoking discussion. They focus on a specific analogy from Matthew Stover’s novel adaptation of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and how it ties in with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But, before Becca and Ryder get into their discussion, they go over the latest magazine covers by Empire magazine featuring The Last Jedi. And then they touch on The Last Jedi article featured in Rolling Stone .

After a bit of news coverage, they get right into their main topic, connecting the literary-verse to the big screen. They dive into an in-depth conversation on Matthew Stover’s analogy, The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.”  The Skywalkers are the day with night, and after the darkness, shines through the light, but even the brightest of lights can cast the darkest shadow. Destruction, replaced by creation.

That said, will this analogy show up in The Last Jedi? Is it already a theme? A curse the Skywalker bloodline carries over and over, generation to generation? The brighter the light, the darker the shadow? After all, you can’t light a candle without casting a shadow.

You can find “Tarkin’s Top Shelf” on the Making Star Wars Podcasting Network and listen on iTunes, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Player FM, Libsyn, and Stitcher. If you like the show and want to get in touch with the hosts, send an e-mail to TTSPodFeelback@gmail.com.

Idiot’s Array: Episode 54 – The Power of the Force

In the action-packed episode, we discuss what separates character like Anakin, Luke, Rey, and Kylo from other Force wielders. What makes them so powerful? Why are some characters Force users and some only Force sensitive? Where does hard work and perseverance come into play?

To start the show we read a listener’s e-mail that may shed some light on where Darth Maul obtained his original Kyber crystal, and then we talk about the latest season of Star Wars Rebels. In our comics segment we talk about DarthVader #7 and the return of Jocasta Nu before diving into the latest The Last Jedi TV spot.
