In episode 41 of Children of the Force, we discuss the huge Rogue One news drop, including the amazing news that Forest Whitaker is playing Saw Gerrera! Join us, and together we will commit morally questionable deeds in the name of freedom and liberty as father and son and daughter and listener...

STAR WARSY STUFF [0:45]


I recently checked out “The World According to Star Wars” by Cass Sunstein.So far, it's like a less-interesting “How Star WarsConquered the Universe” by Chris Taylor. But maybe that’s because I juststarted it.


And we’ve been playing Battlefrontquite a bit since the Bespin pack released. Liam gives a rundown of all thatBespin has to offer. 


And I talk about what I’ve been up to on Twitter these days. 


WHAT’S THAT SOUND? [8:30]

How was Chewbacca’s voice created?

NEWS [12:30]


EntertainmentWeekly has a lot of Rogue One news. A lot.

We discuss the photos and characters, including a lot about Saw Gerrera. 

I do a somewhat dramatic reading of part of the new Aftermath: Life Debtexcerpt that was released over on mashable.com. Pretty cool stuff.

And we got some Star Wars Celebration news. Ray Park and Carrie Fischer will beat Celebration on Sunday, when our UK correspondent Nick is going to be there.But that didn’t seem like enough. So thankfully, it was announced on The StarWars Show that, yes indeed, Rian Johnson (director of Ep. VIII), KathleenKennedy (president of Lucasfilm), Kiri Hart (senior VP of development atLucasfilm), and Chris Miller and Phil Lord will have a panel talking about thenew movies!

 

JOKE [51:50]


Where did Obi Wan and Satine go after they got married?

 

STUMP THE LUMP! [52:25]


I ask the kids: What is the name of the person, the son of a formerSeperatist senator, who worked with Saw and Steela Gerrara when they fought tofree Onderon from the Seperatists?
