Star Wars People’s Court: Is Vice Admiral Holdo a War Criminal?

(WARNING: Podcast and descriptions contain spoilers from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”)

It was one of the most dramatic scenes in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”:  Vice-Admiral Amilyn Holdo (played by Laura Dern) flies her ship at lightspeed through the First Order flagship “The Supremacy,” splitting Snoke’s massive ship in two, nobly sacrificing herself to allow what remained of the Resistance to escape to the planet Crait.

In this episode of the podcast, Adam Thomas, Tysen Webb and Andy Farnsworth draw on their years of experience from watching “Law & Order” and “Perry Mason” to hold a trial in absentia for Vice-Admiral Holdo, considering whether such an act, “from a certain point of view” (to quote Ben Kenobi) could be considered a war crime.
