Children of the Force - a Star Wars podcast

Children of the Force #37 - To Infinity… and…

May 21, 2016

It's episode #37 of Children of the Force! Join us, and together we will rule the galaxy as father and son and daughter and listener....

As always, check out the show guide on our website where we have photos and links to go along with this episode: Get over there!


We’ve been listening to Jabba Flow quite a bit. I’ve even inserted it into my TFA soundtrack right between “The Rathtars” and “Finn’s Confession.”

Not Star Warsy, but we’ve been slowly watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. The kids dig it.

NEWS [7:10]

Alden Ehrenreich is reported to be the next Han Solo! The kids are a little worried, and really, who isn’t? 

The Darth Vader comic is ending with issue #25 in August. I give that a big shoulder shrug and hope it means another comic will be cancelled soon, horrible as that sounds. 

Disney infinity is also ending. Again, not a big deal to us, even though we have Infinity. One word reason for that: Battlefront. And rest assured, we'll talk about the news that Battlefront is getting a sequel in the next episode. There was just too much stuff to talk about this time around. 

The kids have no idea what Freemakers means. I rectify that.

CANON NEWS [26:40]


The canon news comes from the book Bloodline and contains minor spoilers for the book. So I’m not going to write about it here.

JOKE(s) [35:05]


Jokes this week are from twoof Liam’s classmates and, you guess it, Chris from Star Wars Kidscast!

-What did BB-8 say to R2-D2 on Valentine’s Day?
-Which Star Wars character loves to shop?
-Where to Kanjiklub like to surf and swim?
-What is Kanjiklub’s favorite fruit flavor?


REVIEW [38:20]


This week we review theC-3PO comic … finally.

We also discuss that fact that this Lego short picks up where the 3PO comic leaves off.

Which is sort of weird and makes me think there’s some … canonosity? …to the Lego stuff.


Q&A COUNCIL [47:55]


The kids’ classmates knock the Q&ACouncil out of the park this week!


-What, in your opinion, is the mostdevastating moment in all seven Star Wars movies?
-What do you think Episode VIII and Episode IX will be named?
-If you could make any Star Wars movie, what would the name be and what would it be about?

Also, Chris from Star Wars Kidscast answers our question from a couple episodes ago about what weird thing we want to see in Episode VIII!
