Episode 124: How Do Film Novelizations Impact the Overall Story - and Fandom?

Film novelizations can be an opportunity to bring new depth and insight into characters and storylines, but when do film novelizations run the risk of leaving the movie-only audience without the same fan experience? What are the positives and the drawbacks of expanding the film's storyline - and how might it impact fandom?

Plus, this week's panel takes a look at the recent announcement of a live action Star Wars series, and feelings about Jon Favreau as the head writer and executive producer.
