It’s episode 24 of Children of the Force! Join us as we get into a discussion about, risks, sacrifice, droid rights and (what else) the pronunciation of Jakku. There’s also a huge chunk in the middle of the episode where we watch and give our reactions to the trailer for the second half of Rebels’ second season.
Join us, and together we will mosey on through this episode as father and son and daughter and listener…
0:50 – How has our month with The Force Awakens been?
2:20 – Risk-taking and The Force Awakens. Would George Lucas have taken more or less risks with the story? Or would the risks just be different?
5:40 – Has Star Wars changed thematically? Is there more grey in the black and white? Is there realism-creep?
6:40 – Han’s sacrifice. Was it a sacrifice? Can it accurately be called that?
8:30 – Our reaction to the trailer for the second half of Rebels’ second season.
21:00 – Epic droid rights tangent.
JOKE [36:45] – Knock, knock. Who’s there? Jack. Jack who?
STUMP THE LUMP [37:50] – The kids ask, “Where on Jakku do Finn and Poe land?” Spoiler alert: I totally get this one.
OUTRO – 39:40
