Children of the Force #142 - Life Day 2020

September 25, 2019

Could we get another Holiday Special? Hear what the kids and I think about it in this week's episode of... 

CHILDREN OF THE FORCE
(cue emotional string music)

STAR WARSY STUFF [1:20]

We’re watching through the Lord of the Rings movies. They’re great.

We also started watching Steven Universe.

And Bart from Belgium sent us an email.

NEWS [12:40]

Jon Favreau is up for doing a new Star Wars Holiday Special for Disney+. We talk about what we’d like to see. For me, it’s Billie Lourd doing an homage to Carrie Fisher’s Life Day song. And the two Lando’s meeting up in the world between worlds.

We also talk about that Bob Iger book and what he had to say about George Lucas and the sequels.

And Triple Force Friday is nearly upon us!

CANON NEWS [29:05]

Savi and Lor were buds. 

 

JOKE [35:25]

This week’s funny comes from the Daily Show. You can watch the clip here: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=511687476258719

Children of the Force #141 - GoFundThem

September 10, 2019

 

We start the episode off with some bad news about Children of the Force guest Emma’s mom’s stage 4 breast cancer. Thankfully, there’s something you can do to help, please go to the GoFundMe page and donate to help out this family, who are basically our family. For every $20 donated, I’ll send you a 1977 Star Wars trading card of your choice (I have most of them, you’ll get your pick).

Here’s their GoFundMe page: Help our friend Erin fight Stage IV cancer

No amount is too small or too large. And please let me know if you donate. 

NEWS [17:40]

We have some The Mandalorian news. Man, do I hate typing that. I wish there was a rule that titles couldn’t start with articles. Anyway, Entertainment Weekly gave us a few photos and some snippets of information. We discuss.

CANON NEWS [28:00]

Snoke and Kylo Ren on Dagobah? Kylo Ren in the cave?

JOKE [30:50]

How do you casually say hi to a Jedi Grand Master?

Q&A COUNCIL [31:30]

Anna has a question about how excited we are for The Mandalorian. How excited are you?

OUTRO [35:15]

Thanks for listening! Send us a voicemail or email us at forcechildren@gmail.com if you want to take part in the discussion or just give us some feedback. Thanks!

Children of the Force #140 - D23 Giveth

Children of the Force #140 - D23 Giveth

August 27, 2019

D23 gave us all of the goodness over the weekend. The Rise of Skywalker. The Mandalorian. Obi-Wan Kenobi. We break it all down. 

STAR WARSY STUFF [2:50]

A couple corrections and clarifications from last episode.

Non-Star Warsy stuff: We’re watching Lord of the Rings, the first time for the kids.

NEWS [7:30]

We talk all the goodness out of D23. There's so much that it takes us the rest of the episode.

Children of the Force #139 - Obi-What Now?

Children of the Force #139 - Obi-What Now?

August 16, 2019

This week, we're talkin' Dooku: Jedi Lost, the increasing possibility of an Obi-Wan thing, and whether or not kids these days like Star Wars (spoiler: they do). Head on over to the blog post for this episode to see images and video that we talk about: www.childrenoftheforce.com/2019/08/16/episode-139-obi-what-now/ 

STAR WARSY STUFF [2:30]

We’re in the thick of Dooku: Jedi Lost and it’s bringing up some complicated ideas surrounding teaching and knowledge and whether or not it’s always better to know than to not know.

Thrawn: Treason doesn’t spark the same level of discussion, but I’m reading that, too. It’s Thrawny.

I publish a correction and illustrate the difference between Lats Razzi and Sugi.

NEWS [13:00]

We have the trailer for season 2 of Resistance, and sadly also the news that it will be the last season.

In sillier news, the Star Wars Kids youtube channel has a new show: Star Wars Roll Out.

Don Williams says that “every theme” will be in The Rise of Skywalker. I can’t wait to see how they utilize Jabba’s theme. More tuba. That’s what Star Wars needs. 

The Star Wars Barbies are pretty much as cool as they can be while still being Barbies: 

Allegiance has a new blurb.

And the Obi-Wan movie rumor has now turned into the Obi-Wan Disney+ rumor. And it’s getting legs!

CANON NEWS [32:45]

This week’s Canon News comes from excerpts released from the upcoming book, Secrets of the Jedi. 

Q&A COUNCIL [40:20]

Do kids these days like Star Wars? Which Star Wars resonates most with you?

Children of the Force #138 - Darth Yeti

July 22, 2019

We have a new microphone. Its name is Darth Yeti. We use it to talk all about the SDCC Star Wars reveals and much more! 

STAR WARSY STUFF [4:00]

I finished Alphabet Squadron.

We’re super excited for His Dark Materials and all the upcoming Marvel goodness that was revealed at SDCC over the weekend.

NEWS [14:20]

New Vader Immortal posters show us some of the cool stuff happening in that game: https://www.starwars.com/news/ilmxlab-vader-immortal-character-posters

Vader’s Castle from IDW is coming back for Halloween this year.

A new Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren comic series:

A prequel comic about the Resistance, Allegiance:

The cover for the TROS visual dictionary was released. The word “vibro” appears on the cover.

CANON NEWS [39:10]

Someone was recording Jyn’s plea to the Rebel leaders on Vavin 4.

JOKE [42:45]

When does Kylo dream?

Children of the Force #137 - Libaries, Sith Toopers, and Sta Wars

July 16, 2019

We're back and more tangential than ever! This week, we're talking Nightsisters, Sith Troopers, The Mandalorian, and a whole bunch more. 

STAR WARSY STUFF [6:40]

We (sort of) finished our Clone Wars - Domino Squad watch-through and now it’s on to those creepy Nightsisters.

Speaking of creepy, we’re also listening to Dooku: Jedi Lost.

And I’m almost done with the unfortunately titled Alphabet Squadron. It’s pretty good.

Liam’s still making EDM. We play a short song.

We also read an email from Jack from Ottawa.

NEWS [30:35]

What the heck is a Sith Trooper?

Jon Favreau is already writing the second season of The Mandalorian.

And Daisy Ridley says that The Rise of Skywalker is “a nice full stop on the Skywalker series.” 

CANON NEWS [51:05]

Even the characters in Alphabet Squadron think that name is ridiculous. 

JOKE [52:45]

I tell a few awful starfighter jokes.

STUMP THE LUMP! [54:40]

What are the names of Savage Opress’ brothers?
