May the Fourth be with you! In this special Star Wars Day episode, Jen and Angela discuss the women of the Star Wars universe. Click for show notes. To the hosts, Star Wars also encompasses what was formerly known as: “The Expanded Universe” or “The EU” as fans call it. The EU included all officially licensed content, outside the films and television shows; such as novels, comics and games.

Minor spoilers included regarding characters. Please see the episode show notes to find out how far to fast forward to skip the spoilers, as well as links to content mentioned in this episode and a slide show of female characters. There are a number of women in the EU and in the background of the films, so they may not have included all of your favorites. The hosts discussed as many as they could and added as many characters as they could find to their slide show in the show notes; including fan art and cosplay photos. They also discussed the recent controversy about the EU and the announcemnt about the cast. Jen and Angela weigh in on the debate and try to offer hope to concerned fans while still expressing their own disappointments over the years and their nervousness with regards to J.J. Abram's involvment. 

Special thanks to Jen's Star Wars Stacks co-hosts, Chris and Joe and to the Anomaly Group for their participation.
