Children of the Force #140 - D23 Giveth

August 27, 2019

D23 gave us all of the goodness over the weekend. The Rise of Skywalker. The Mandalorian. Obi-Wan Kenobi. We break it all down. 

STAR WARSY STUFF [2:50]

A couple corrections and clarifications from last episode.

Non-Star Warsy stuff: We’re watching Lord of the Rings, the first time for the kids.

NEWS [7:30]

We talk all the goodness out of D23. There's so much that it takes us the rest of the episode.

Children of the Force #139 - Obi-What Now?

Children of the Force #139 - Obi-What Now?

August 16, 2019

This week, we're talkin' Dooku: Jedi Lost, the increasing possibility of an Obi-Wan thing, and whether or not kids these days like Star Wars (spoiler: they do). Head on over to the blog post for this episode to see images and video that we talk about: www.childrenoftheforce.com/2019/08/16/episode-139-obi-what-now/ 

STAR WARSY STUFF [2:30]

We’re in the thick of Dooku: Jedi Lost and it’s bringing up some complicated ideas surrounding teaching and knowledge and whether or not it’s always better to know than to not know.

Thrawn: Treason doesn’t spark the same level of discussion, but I’m reading that, too. It’s Thrawny.

I publish a correction and illustrate the difference between Lats Razzi and Sugi.

NEWS [13:00]

We have the trailer for season 2 of Resistance, and sadly also the news that it will be the last season.

In sillier news, the Star Wars Kids youtube channel has a new show: Star Wars Roll Out.

Don Williams says that “every theme” will be in The Rise of Skywalker. I can’t wait to see how they utilize Jabba’s theme. More tuba. That’s what Star Wars needs. 

The Star Wars Barbies are pretty much as cool as they can be while still being Barbies: 

Allegiance has a new blurb.

And the Obi-Wan movie rumor has now turned into the Obi-Wan Disney+ rumor. And it’s getting legs!

CANON NEWS [32:45]

This week’s Canon News comes from excerpts released from the upcoming book, Secrets of the Jedi. 

Q&A COUNCIL [40:20]

Do kids these days like Star Wars? Which Star Wars resonates most with you?

Children of the Force #138 - Darth Yeti

July 22, 2019

We have a new microphone. Its name is Darth Yeti. We use it to talk all about the SDCC Star Wars reveals and much more! 

STAR WARSY STUFF [4:00]

I finished Alphabet Squadron.

We’re super excited for His Dark Materials and all the upcoming Marvel goodness that was revealed at SDCC over the weekend.

NEWS [14:20]

New Vader Immortal posters show us some of the cool stuff happening in that game: https://www.starwars.com/news/ilmxlab-vader-immortal-character-posters

Vader’s Castle from IDW is coming back for Halloween this year.

A new Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren comic series:

A prequel comic about the Resistance, Allegiance:

The cover for the TROS visual dictionary was released. The word “vibro” appears on the cover.

CANON NEWS [39:10]

Someone was recording Jyn’s plea to the Rebel leaders on Vavin 4.

JOKE [42:45]

When does Kylo dream?

OUTRO [44:55]

Children of the Force #137 - Libaries, Sith Toopers, and Sta Wars

July 16, 2019

We're back and more tangential than ever! This week, we're talking Nightsisters, Sith Troopers, The Mandalorian, and a whole bunch more. 

STAR WARSY STUFF [6:40]

We (sort of) finished our Clone Wars - Domino Squad watch-through and now it’s on to those creepy Nightsisters.

Speaking of creepy, we’re also listening to Dooku: Jedi Lost.

And I’m almost done with the unfortunately titled Alphabet Squadron. It’s pretty good.

Liam’s still making EDM. We play a short song.

We also read an email from Jack from Ottawa.

NEWS [30:35]

What the heck is a Sith Trooper?

Jon Favreau is already writing the second season of The Mandalorian.

And Daisy Ridley says that The Rise of Skywalker is “a nice full stop on the Skywalker series.” 

CANON NEWS [51:05]

Even the characters in Alphabet Squadron think that name is ridiculous. 

JOKE [52:45]

I tell a few awful starfighter jokes.

STUMP THE LUMP! [54:40]

What are the names of Savage Opress’ brothers?

Q&A COUNCIL [37:30]

STAR WARSY STUFF [10:30]

We talk about Queen’s Shadow again, now that I’ve finished it.  

We go over our Star Wars Day doings.

Anna started Master and Apprentice and likes it so far.

She also got into an argument with her teacher about The Phantom Menace. Which leads into the “20 things I love about The Phantom Menace” I’m doing over on twitter: https://twitter.com/ForceChildren/status/1123801546687426562

The Journey to the Rise of Skywalker books have been announced. Not a lot of big books coming out, but there’s enough to chew on.

We cover some Disney+ news that came out during Celebration.

John Williams' Galaxy’s Edge Suite is now available on Spotify and elsewhere. 

JOKE [53:10]

What do you call a smuggler who’s glued to the ceiling, missing one side of his brain, hasn’t shaved in a week, and loves to move a bunch of spongy balls all around at once?

STAR WARSY STUFF [3:15]

We talk a bit about Queen’s Shadow and how different of a book it is.

We give a quick spoiler-free review of Endgame. 

Oh, and we talk about that theory video I posted about Rey Skywalker and Force transportation. You can watch it here:

Reaction Corps - The Rise of Skywalker SWCC teaser

Reaction Corps - The Rise of Skywalker SWCC teaser

April 23, 2019

It's our full breakdown and reaction to The Rise of Skywalker teaser! We're going to take this Skywalker theory further than it's ever gone before! 

We'll also discuss questions like: 
Why isn't Kylo shooting Rey? 
Why is he flying left?
(By the way, I made a video showing what it would look like if the movement went from left to right. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YsH4D0yE-g"

Who's fixing Kylo's mask? 

Is that the Death Star I or Death Star II? 

Who is rising, exactly? 

Will Rey be a Skywalker? And what could that even mean? 

Then we listen to what J.J., K.K., and the actors have to say about the teaser and the movie.
