Children of the Force #30 - Including Inclusion

March 16, 2016

In episode 30 of CotF we discuss diversity and inclusion, play an awesome voicemail, tell a ridiculous joke and more! Join us, and together we will go pew! pew! pew! all the way home as father and son and daughter and listener....

As always, be sure to check out our website for the show guide, which is so much better than these notes. 


Anna and I watched Padme’s deleted scenes from RotS. We also watched “Within and Minute,” which is a great documentary that details all the people who worked on RotS and what they did. Anna really loved it

We’re continuing our trek through the Clone Wars. We’ve recently watched the D-Squad arc and the Maul/Deathwatch arc. And, of course, we saw Rebels: Shroud of Darkness.


We got a great voicemail from Asher and an email from Chris from Star Wars Kidscast

NEWS [20:50]

J.J. says there’s no reason a LGBT character wouldn’t appear in an upcoming Star Wars movie. We applaud him and discuss why we talk about things like this on the podcast and why we speak up about inclusion, diversity and equality.

We know now that Chewie is going to be in the Han Solo standalone. Maybe not a big surprise, but good to know. And this news brings up the fact that Lumpy, Chewbacca’s son, is on the brink of canon. Remember, according to The Princess, The Scoundrel and The Farmboy, Chewbacca has a wife

Speaking of Chewie, there’s a Han Solo comic coming up. 

J.J. Abrams addresses the perceived snub that Leia gives Chewie in The Force Awakens. 

We don’t talk about the Lego Star Wars: The Freemakers. At least not yet. 

Finally, we discuss the behind the scenes tidbits coming out of South By Southwest.

CANON NEWS [36:35]

Our canon news this week is all about Lor San Tekka and the Church of the Force.


JOKE [41:20]

The joke today is a Liam special: What do you call Boba Fett if he really thinks babies are cute and he really thinks feet are useful?

REVIEW [43:40]

Liam gives us his review of Star Wars: Original Trilogy Graphic Novel put out by Disney Lucasfilm Press. 

Q&A COUNCIL [48:10]

Two questions this week from Chris from Star Wars Kidscast: 

What is your favorite kind of Star Wars alien?

Who is your favorite kid in a Star Wars movie/show? 


The kids ask me to list the military ranks in the Resistance. And I get a bonus point if I list them in order.


I pay my respects to the ForceCast. Then the kids make it awkward.
