Children of the Force #108 - The Good, the Bad and the Savareen

June 21, 2018

 

This week, we're talking Solo, music, people who aren't nice on the internet ... and more! 

We start the show off by announcing the winner of the signed copy of Ashley Eckstein’s It’s Your Universe.

STAR WARSY STUFF [7:15]

Liam’s been playing Battlefront, the first. I’ve been playing Battlefront II again.

We saw Solo again. I have some thoughts about Enfys Nest’s theme and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I make a mashup called The Good, the Bad and the Savareen (renamed after this episode was recorded).

Check out the video I made:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHlk3x1iVXI

WHAT’S THAT SOUND? [16:55]

How did Ben Burtt make the sound for the Millennium Falcon?

NEWS [23:20]

Solo isn’t making as much money as projected. We talk about why that matters. Spoiler: It’s not the money.

In a year and a half, we’re told that there will be a single-player Star Wars video game: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I’ll believe it when I see it. And I’m hoping it’s not just a lightsaber game.

The Poe comic is ending.

And some people are not nice on the internet.

CANON NEWS [50:20]

What’s the deal with Han’s dice?

JOKE [53:10]

What did Kylo Ren say when Hux asked him if he turned up any rebels in the base on Crait? No dice.

STUMP THE LUMP! [54:20]

What type of Alien is Rio Durant?
What instrument does Beckett say he’s going to learn to play?

Children of the Force #103 - Droid Rights

April 25, 2018

 

This week, we're recording from our beautiful backyard (as opposed to last week, when we were home from school on a snow day). And we're taking about Solo and droid rights. Siri may or may not join us. You'll have to listen to find out. 

As always, check out the show guide on our website for images, links and video: childrenoftheforce.com/2018/04/26/episode-103-droid-rights/

NEWS [2:00]

There’s another new Solo commercial/trailer. Check it out:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGGyTO-VlUs

We talk about new stuff from it.

We also cover the new character posters: https://www.starwars.com/news/meet-the-crew-in-these-new-solo-a-star-wars-story-character-posters

And new entries in the starwars.com databank: https://www.starwars.com/films/solo

We also cover the great news that Victoria Mahoney is going to be the second unit director on Episode 9!

RON HOWARD SHARES STUFF ON TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM [23:35]

Solo is in the can!

Also, that’s probably not Dr. Evazan that L3 is assaulting in that one trailer, after all. Chances are, he has something to do with droid fighting. Which L3 hates. Which brings us to our canon news…

CANON NEWS [26:30]

 

L3-37 is a proponent of droid rights. So we talk about rights quite a bit. So … let me know if you have any questions.

 

JOKE [40:45]

 

Who was Lando Calrissian’s favorite smuggler after that whole carbonite ordeal on Cloud City? Chewbacca, Han’s down.

 

STUMP THE LUMP! [41:55]

 

Who says, “He’s quite clever you know … for a human being.”

Who is that character saying that about?

Looks like there will be droid fights in Solo.

Han and Chewie in chains!

Here’s that shot of Dryden Vos we were talking about from the EMPIRE magazine (https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/paul-bettany-solo-star-wars-story-villain-dryden-vos-exclusive-look/)

We talk about a few of the Solo Topps Digital trading cards.

Finally, Rian Johnson talked with the LA Times (http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-et-mn-star-wars-the-last-jedi-rian-johnson-20180403-story.html) about what makes Star Wars Star Wars. And about diversity behind the camera.
