Children of the Force #99 - Stay on Target

March 14, 2018

We're back! This week, we're trying to stay on target, catching up, talking new Star Wars, books, the birds and the lyleks, and giving free advertizing to a certain one-stop-shop near and dear to our hearts. 

Be sure to check out the show guide over on our website for images and links to things we talk about in this episode:

We loved The Force of Sound, a documentary about the sounds of The Last Jedi. 

We watched the emotional last episodes of Rebels. We talk about them later in the episode.

Liam and I are still reading the Servants of the Empire series. We’re on book two at the moment. And I’m reading the wonderful novelization of The Last Jedi. So, so good.

NEWS [21:30]

Jon Faverau is helming a live action TV series that’s going to be on the streaming Disney platform.

We have some new information about who Michael K. Williams was going to play in Solo.

And we take a look at a new flyover video of Galaxy’s Edge, the upcoming Star Wars park at Disneyland and Disney World. 

RON HOWARD SHARES STUFF ON TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM [36:30]

STAR WARSY STUFF [29:15]

We saw The Last Jedi for a third time over the break.

The kids had a Star Wars-filled New Years Eve party.

I read The Legends of Luke Skywalker and The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary. I loved one, and didn’t really like the other one.
