I recently checked out “The World According to Star Wars” by Cass Sunstein. I’ve started reading it since recording this episode, and so far, it’s a pretty basic “this is Star Wars” type of book. Like a less-interesting “How Star Wars Conquered the Universe” by Chris Taylor. But maybe that’s because I just started it.

And we’ve been playing Battlefront quite a bit since the Bespin pack released. Liam gives a rundown of all that Bespin has to offer.

And I talk about what I’ve been up to on Twitter these days.


How was Chewbacca’s voice created?

NEWS [12:30]

Entertainment Weekly has a lot of Rogue One news. A lot.

Here’s a link to the photos we talk about.

Here’s the story about Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera.

And here are details on a ton of characters. We didn’t get into all of this in the show, but it’s good information to have. There’s a lot more on ew.com.

I do a somewhat dramatic reading of part of the new Aftermath: Life Debt excerpt that was released over on mashable.com. Pretty cool stuff.

And we got some Star Wars Celebration news. Ray Park and Carrie Fischer will be at Celebration on Sunday, when our UK correspondent Nick is going to be there. But that didn’t seem like enough. So thankfully, it was announced on The Star Wars Show that, yes indeed, Rian Johnson (director of Ep. VIII), Kathleen Kennedy (president of Lucasfilm), Kiri Hart (senior VP of development at Lucasfilm), and Chris Miller and Phil Lord (the Han Solo standalone) will have a panel talking about their new movies!

JOKE [51:50]

Where did Obi Wan and Satine go after they got married?


I ask the kids: What is the name of the person, the son of a former Seperatist senator, who worked with Saw and Steela Gerrara when they fought to free Onderon from the Seperatists?

OUTRO [56:30]
