It’s Episode #26 of Children of the Force! My voice was croaky from a cold I was getting over, so I step back and Anna runs the show!
STAR WARSY STUFF [1:10]
Liam has won two out of the last three X-Wing competitions with me. Kid’s a natural.
Liam and I have also been working through the trade paperbacks of the new Marvel comics. So far, we’re read Star Wars and Vader. We already read the Leia comic, because we bought that one as it came out. Same with Shattered Empire. Up next: Lando.
We’re also reading through the Jedi Academy books and they’re almost done with those (actually, by the time I’m writing this, we already finished them!).
I finished Before the Awakening and really liked it. Go read it if you haven’t already.
Gwendoline Christie has confirmed that she will be reprising her role of Captain Phasma in Episode VIII: Phasma’s Revenge. And fandom breathes a collective sigh of relief.
CANON NEWS [4:15]
Snoke (and Kylo Ren, if Kylo Ren is to be believed) exalt Vader, except that part where he didn’t kill his son and instead allowed the Empire to be destroyed. They know about that and they disagree with it. (But a small part of me believes that Kylo Ren actually plans to do something similar much later down the road … which we’ll get into next week).
At any rate, in order to illustrate this canon news, Anna and I do a dramatic reading of the part of the TFA novelization which directly mentions this “momentary lapse” of judgment on Vader’s part. My hoarse voice makes a decent Snoke, especially with the pitch lowered a little bit.
What do you call Chewbacca when he has chocolate stuck in his hair?
STUMP THE LUMP [7:55]
Liam asks Anna who rides the luggabeast in The Force Awakens.
