Brian Smallbeck, Michael Blomberg, Peter Gilbert, Matt Kelly, Amee Nefzgar Banks, Lizzie Gardner, and Elliot Stevenson of Firefly: The Improvised Continuation (unfortunately Sophie Brossard and Emily Townswick couldn’t make it) come on to spoil Star Wars: The Force Awakens. They discuss the challenges of not only doing a narrative form, but also making well-known, existing characters your own (without having Amee’s friends correct you). To do that, they let the significant event and any B stories dictate the theme of the episode’s hero’s journey. They also have a secret character arc in mind, which allows the drama of the events reflect the drama of the relationships.
Also, Matt and Philip go back in time to watch their parents fuck. Don’t eat Me Ma’s Chicken.
