Here’s this week’s podcasts in review.

501stCast: September 2013 Episode is out and covers all the latest 501st Legion news, from mission reports to upcoming events. If you want to catch up with what the Legion is up to, this is the place to go.

ForceCast: Episode 272 includes an interview with LucasBooks senior editor Jennifer Heddle. It starts at the 29 minute mark. Jen talks a little bit about how she became an editor for the Star Wars line and what her job entails. She also let drop that there will be more Star Wars books announced for 2014 in addition to those that have already been revealed, but they aren’t ready to reveal what those books are yet. Definitely good to hear that there’ll be more books.

Full of Sith: Special Release David Prowse and Peter Mayhew Episode has audio of the panel from Salt Lake Comic Con hosted by Bryan Young. If you’ve already listened to the Bombad Radio episode of the same audio, you can go ahead and skip this one, otherwise be sure to check it out to hear what David and Peter had to say about their work on the films.

Ewok of the Day: Chukha-Trok

Here at Roqoo Depot, we are counting down the days to the release of Ewoks: Shadows of Endor. Written and drawn by Zack Giallongo with colors by Braden Lamb, this trade paperback comic leads directly in the events of Return of the Jedi and ties into the Ewoks television movies and series. To help get readers in the mood, we’ll be doing an Ewok of the day each day until the comic’s release. Today we’re highlighting Chukha-Trok.

Chukha-Trok is a notable Ewok known for his strength, wisdom, and for being a woodcutter. He accompanied Logray and his caravan in their attempt to rescue a pair of humans named Jeremitt and Catarine from one of the monstrous Gorax. Sadly, Chukha-Trok died during the confrontation with the Gorax.

His first appearance was in the television movie Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure (1984). He also appeared in a couple episodes of the Ewoks television show and in the short story “Return of the Great One!” which was part of the 1988 Marvel Ewoks Annual.

Ewoks: Shadows of Endor will be out on October 9, 2013.
