This episode of Children of the Force is dedicated to the memory of Philando Castile.

STAR WARSY STUFF [3:00]

Double Points weekend for Battlefront!

Liam got a sweet new Darth Vader watch. It’s digital!

We got a kick out of this Floppotron video.

And … we started catching Pokemon. It’s ridiculous.

NEWS [7:15]

A three-minute Rogue One trailer is coming out this Friday … probably. On ABC! Probably.

Celebration is quickly approaching. The wave of news is going to crash this weekend and it’s going to be hard to stay upright. But we’ll do our best. Are we going to get a name for Episode VIII? Anna thinks so.

Our friend BB-K8 is live-blogging her experience overseas. At the time of recording, she hadn’t made it to Skellig Michael yet. But the next day, she made it there! So happy for her. Check out all the awesomeness of her trip over at Blabba the Hutt: http://blabbathehutt.net/other/live-blog-bb-k8-heads-celebration-europe/

Thankfully for all of us who can’t make it to Celebration, they’re going to be live-streaming it again! The Star Wars Show Live will show us as much of celebration as they can. We’re really looking forward to the Running of the Willrow Hoods!

Jedi Bibliothek posted some images from an upcoming book that gave us three really great images. His post can be found here: https://#-bibliothek.de/blog/2016/07/vorschau-und-infos-zum-neuen-galactic-atlas/

And here are the images:

We loved looking at this map. Mortis! Lothal! Starkiller Base!

But wait… Mortis! It’s a place that can be plotted on a map? That’s a pretty huge deal. It wasn’t all a dream. It was a physical place, which means the people on Mortis were likely also real physical people (as opposed for Force apparitions or whatever). It really concretizes all that weird stuff that went down on Mortis.

Aftermath: Life Debt is out! You should all go get it now. I’ve started reading it and I’m already so, so happy with it. Here’s the excerpt we talked about: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/books/2016/07/08/maz-kanata-star-wars-aftermath-life-debt-exclusive-excerpt/86839668/

We get a great pre-Celebration email from our Star Wars Celebration UK Correspondent, Nick from London. Nick’s email covers Carrie Fischer, Ray Park, Episode VIII, Benicio del Toro, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, a post-Episode IX trilogy… (catches breath) …and is Mace Windu alive?

You know my answer: #snokeismacewindu

CANON NEWS [26:05]

Of all the crashed Star Destroyers on Jakku, we know the names of two of them. The Ravager and the Inflictor. We discuss the known history of these two ships.

JOKE [29:30]

Two jokes today from Chris from Star Wars Kidscast.

What starfighter stings the most?
What starfighter is the most dressed up?

STUMP THE LUMP! [33:10]

This week, the kids decided to show me a trading card and have me guess the name of the person on that card.

Here’s the card. I cropped out her name.
