We Have Spoken: A Mandalorian Podcast – Chapter Three: The Choking Hazard

November 27, 2019

It’s Chapter 3 of The Mandalorian and if this is what woman-directed Star Wars looks like, please only give us woman-directed Star Wars from now on.

We talk whistling birds, body counts, the creepy Client, Mando culture and ... armpit hair? For some reason?

Children of the Force #146 - TROS in EW: An Acronym Story

November 20, 2019

This week we're talking the Entertainment Weekly story, photos, that new TV spot, and more! As always, check out the blog post for this episode to see more links, images and videos: https://childrenoftheforce.com/2019/11/21/episode-146-tros-in-ew-an-acronym-story/

STAR WARSY STUFF [1:10]

Jacob fills us in on hot chips.

Margaret and Henry sent us some photos of their Halloween costumes! So cool! 

We’ve been watching The Mandalorian, of course.

I finished Black Spire and ended up liking it quite a bit! And I’m 2/3 of the way through Resistance Reborn and there are things to talk about.

NEWS [11:11]

There’s a bunch of The Rise of Skywalker news and images from Entertainment Weekly this week.

There’s a new poster!

We also watch the new 30 second teaser. We recorded before the full wide-screen version came out and, hoo boy, does that reveal some interesting things. Take a look at what we were missing!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zsp8iOt76YU

The Obi Wan show was going to be a movie.

And Bob Iger talks about even more Disney+ Star Wars shows.

JOKE [42:15]

What do you call a Mandalorian who likes small oranges?
What do you call a Mandalorian who likes to sleep?
What do you call a musical group of Mandalorians?
What do you call Chewbacca’s bandolier when it’s being worn by a Mandalorian? 

Q&A COUNCIL [43:35]

Our question comes from Jacob: What Hogwarts house would Star Wars characters be in? We don’t actually answer this question this week, but we will next week! Let us know if you have any thoughts!

We Have Spoken: A Mandalorian Podcast – Chapter Two: You Speak Terrible Jawa

November 16, 2019

It’s Chapter 2 of The Mandalorian and we are HERE. FOR. IT.

First we recap Chapter 1 and I talk about how the blue fishy alien from the beginning of the episode remind me of Sea Monkeys. Yeah, it’s a stretch. But for some reason that’s who he reminded me of.

Then we dive deep into Chapter 2.

We Have Spoken: A Mandalorian Podcast - Chapter One: Pew Pew Pew

November 13, 2019

Look outside! The Mandalorian is here! 

Join us as we discuss (with FULL SPOILERS) the characters, themes, locations, music, and everything else from Chapter 1 of The Mandalorian, which I have lovingly dubbed, "Pew Pew Pew.' 

You'll also hear us talk about how the title of these episodes was going to be "MandiloriFANS," but the kids and I talked about it and we all decided that "We Have Spoken" seems like a better fit. When I say that we figure this stuff out as we go along, I'm not joking!

Thank you so much for listening! You can reach out to us in any of the following ways. Let us know what you thought of The Mandalorian!

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!

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.
