Children of the Force - a Star Wars podcast

Children of the Force #42 - Pre-Celebration Postulations

July 13, 2016

In episode 42 ofChildren of the Force we discuss Celebration Europe news, how it's virtually impossible to have an original Star Wars thought (google it if you don't believe me), and all sorts of news, jokes and a quiz. Join us, and together we will catch 'em all as father and son and daughter and listener....

As always, check out our website for our show guides, which come along with photos and links and videos and all sorts of great stuff you aren't going to find in these show notes:


This episode of Children of the Force is dedicated to the memory of PhilandoCastile. 


Double Points weekend for Battlefront!

Liam got a sweet new Darth Vader watch. It’s digital!

We got a kick out of this Floppotron video:

And … we started catching Pokemon. It’s ridiculous.

NEWS [7:15]

A three-minute Rogue One trailer is coming out this Friday … probably.

Celebration is quickly approaching. The wave of news is going to crash this weekend and it’s going to be hard to stay upright. But we’ll do our best. Are we going to get a name for Episode VIII? Anna thinks so.

Our friend BB-K8 is live-blogging her experience overseas. At the time of recording, she hadn’t made it to Skellig Michael yet. But the next day, she made it there! So happy for her. Check out all the awesomeness of her trip over at Blabba the Hutt:

Thankfully for all of us who can’t make it to Celebration, they’re going to be live-streaming it again! The Star Wars Show Live will show us as much of celebration as they can. I’m really looking forward to the Running of the Willrow Hoods!

Jedi Bibliothek posted some images from an upcoming book that gave us three really great images. His post can be found here:

Aftermath: Life Debt is out! Here’s the excerpt we talked about:

We get a great pre-Celebration email from our Star Wars Celebration UK Correspondent, Nick from London. Carrie Fischer, Ray Park, Episode VIII, Benicio del Toro, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, a post-Episode IX trilogy, and ... is Mace Windu alive? My answer: #snokeismacewindu

CANON NEWS [26:05]


Of all the crashed Star Destroyers on Jakku, we know the names of two of them. The Ravager and theInflictor. We discuss the known history of these two ships.


JOKE [29:30]

Two jokes today from Chris from Star Wars Kidscast. Thanks, Chris!

What starfighter stings the most?
What starfighter is the most dressed up?


This week, the kids show me a trading card and have me guess the name of the person on that card. The card, like images of many of the other things we talked about on this episode, can be found on our show guide at
