Star Wars meets Platoon. Solomon Kwai is one of countless youths from across the galaxy who find themselves in the Imperial Army four years after the Clone Wars and before the rise of The Empire, because the battle is not over. Kwai and the rest of the 79th platoon are stationed on a remote planet in the Outer Rim. The days are brutal and filled with ever present danger under the Imperial Flag.
Tensions rise, and soon there’s blaster fire. Suddenly Kwai and his comrades are embroiled in a bloody conflict, one the Empire cannot afford to lose as they become part of the galactic war machine… will they survive?
Fred has spent countless hours recording and producing this 10+ hour audio drama with over 50 cast members. All the hard work is finally paying off. The release of the first season of Mud79 will drop on June 1.
“This is the Star Wars story I’ve always wanted to tell. It’s been rattling around in my head for years, and I’m glad to finally be in a position to get it out there,” said Fearless Fred. “I’m also lucky I know so many massive Star Wars fans willing to lend me their time and voices to tell it properly, just check out that cast! Mud79 is a total labour of love. And you can hear it in every episode.”
You won’t have to wait long for a followup to the first season as the second is planned to debut at the end of August. Fearless Fred will return to the Capes and Tights Podcast, after his first appearance on Episode 107, to discuss Mud79 sometime in August.
Capes and Tights has been lucky enough to get a chance to listen to Mud79 and it is truly a work of wonder. Fred is giving us yet a Star Wars story from a true fan of the universe.
