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?

We saw an awesome Solo display at the theater when we went to go see The Greatest Show.

We have the youngest guest we’ve ever had on the show. Introducing, two year old Emma!

Children of the Force #100 - 100!

March 28, 2018

On this, our 100th regular episode, Chris from from Star Wars Kidscast joins us. The tables are turned and instead of us asking the questions, Chris takes the wheel and asks away. It’s a nice change of pace and super fun.

You can follow Chris on Twitter @SWKidscast and his website is http://starwarskidscast.blogspot.com

After talking at length with Chris about everything ranging from favorite characters to how we square being peace-loving hippies while loving Star Wars, we have a bit of Canon News…

CANON NEWS [1:02:55]

Why was Luke running to Rey in The Last Jedi right before he sees her connecting with Kylo? The answer is pretty surprising.
