A very special person gave us the Jedi Academy trilogy for Valentine’s Day.
Liam and I salivated over X-Wing expansions at the mall the other day. Liam loved the Imperial Aces and drew a picture of them when we got home.
LISTENER FEEDBACK [4:35]
We get a great birthday voicemail from @torpedoted13!
And we read an email from Nick, Sylvia and Sarah from London! They have some great theories that we discuss, including the Rey-as-reincarnated-Anakin theory and the Snoke-as-Vader theory.
Jedi News reports that there might be a Force Friday for Rogue One on September 30th.
Anna’s not really excited for Rogue One, but that might change when we see the first teaser? We’ll see…
And of course, we got that really cool production teaser for Episode VIII:
As if that wasn’t enough, we got information about new and returning cast.
Benecio Del Toro! Who I assume will not look anything like this:
Laura Dern! Who I’m so happy is in Star Wars, because it means someone made this:
We also discuss who’s absent from the announcement (Peter Mayhew, Billy Dee Williams, Hayden Christiansen, Ewan McGregor) and why that might be.
CANON NEWS [44:40]
Starkiller Base is not that kyber-crystal-rich planet we thought it might be.
What did Admiral Ackbar say when he went to the bathroom? (No, it’s not what you think … or is it?)
Q&A COUNCIL [47:45]
Our questions today come from Nick, Sylvia and Sarah!
-What is your favourite trilogy? Original, prequel or sequel?
-Who do you think Rey’s parents are?
-Will Finn die in Episode VIII? (the kids were aghast at this question and emphatically said no, willing their words to be true)
STUMP THE LUMP [54:25]
The kids ask: What material is Rey’s sled made out of? I actually (sort of) get it right!
Thanks for listening! Send us a voicemail or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to take part in the discussion or just give us some feedback. Thanks!
