It’s Episode 11 of Children of the Force! And yes, this was recorded after the massive Entertainment Weekly dump of August 12th and 13th. So none of that stuff here. It’s coming in our next episode, to be sure.
Listen, you will…
STAR WARSY STUFF [2:45]
The kids and I talk about the Star Wars prequels and Star Wars Prequel Appreciation Week, which was last week. I get on my prequel soapbox. I compare the prequels to soy milk and a puzzle.
Anyway, click this hashtag here to see a ton of prequel appreciation: #SWPAW
Don’t forget (like I’ve been doing all week)! This week is The Clone Wars Appreciation Week. #SWTCWAW
We talk about that Korean TV spot for The Force Awakens.
Me: It has two seconds of new footage.
Liam: Yay. Let’s pause it and look at it really, really, really closely.
Me: Let’s over-analyze the commercial!
I love these kids so much.
Anyway, here’s the spot, like you haven’t seen it already:
One last bit of news is that the Star Wars saga is being released on Blu-ray again. Liam notices that two of the covers are not like the others. One isn’t a main character. The other isn’t a bad guy!
Yellow! It’s a lightsaber color! In the book Dark Disciple, Asajj Ventress has a yellow lightsaber. Where did it come from? Who knows. But it’s yellow.
We discuss that there have been yellow blades in the past, but not on a standard lightsaber. The Jedi temple guards in The Clone Wars had yellow double-bladed lightsaber pikes.
So sure. Yellow. But look at this image of Ventress from the short story Kindred Spirits in Star Wars Insider #159. Now that’s a lightsaber.
Knock Knock. Who’s there? Tattoo. Tattoo who?
QUESTION & ANSWER COUNCIL [24:15]
Some great questions this week.
If you could introduce any lightsaber color into canon, what color would it be?
