It’s Episode 3!
In episode 3 of Children of the Force, we talk about the Star Warsy things we’ve been doing these days.
A recent acquisition of Liam’s is the Darth Vader matchbox car (do the kids still call them matchbox cars?).
Liam’s not huge into cars, but this one has stolen his heart. And I said I’d post a drawing that he did of this car, but I cannot find it anywhere. It’s driving me up the wall. So here are some consolation drawings by Liam. The first is the Imperial Shuttle with Vader, Kallus and Tarkin:
The second is The Inquisitor.
And the third is this modified clothing tag in the style of Sabine vis à vis Annie Stoll.
Anna laughs way too hard when hearing that Harrison Ford broke his ankle back in June. And we discuss that while talking about Ford’s recent crash landing.
We briefly talk about the new upcoming books, but we’ll save that big discussion for next episode.
We not-too-briefly discuss the new lesbian character in the upcoming novel, Lords of the Sith and how that’s a good thing. We also talk about the author of that book and discuss the essay The Death of the Author by Roland Barthes and how it can be applied in this situation. Yep. You read that right.
We discuss the newly released name for the first standalone movie, Rogue One, and we talk about what Rogue Squadron is and how we’re all excited about Felicity Jones.
