We have a couple voicemails from our favorite five year old listener, Isaac and a ton of Yoda conversation.

Liam and I have been reading the Vader comic’s Shu-Torun War trade paperback. It’s pretty good. I’ll be sad to see Vader end, but I’m also looking forward to what’s next.

We’ve been watching the Go Rogue short films full of toys.

And we learned in that third video that one of the planets in Rogue One is named Eadu!


I checked out the first episode of You Seek Knowledge, which is a great podcast that explores the nooks and crannies of the galaxy far, far away. Check it out.

And the title of that podcast leads to a discussion about how Maul has become a sympathetic character, even though we don’t consider him one of the “good guys.”


What’s the deal with Garindan’s voice? Well, pilgrim, it has an interesting story, I’ll tell ya what.


NEWS [12:20]

Rogue One has a new composer. Alexandre Desplat is out and Michael Giacchino is in! Giacchino composed the music for such kid favorites as The Incredibles, Inside Out, Up and Zootopia. And he’s a huge Star Wars geek. So … awesome.

A new Yoda arc is coming up in the Star Wars comic. It’s going to tell the story of a pre-prequel adventure of Yoda’s. We’re looking forward to it and want varying degrees of revelations.

CANON NEWS [21:35]

How does the Empire feel about non-humans? Not so great.

JOKE [33:35]

Isaac asks: Who is Darth Maul’s little brother?

I ask: What did Han Solo say when, while on a pirate ship, he spotted someone on a far away island?

Q&A COUNCIL [35:40]

Isaac also has a question for the Question and Answer Council. Who was Yoda’s master?

There are so many ways to approach this question and we try them all out.

Here’s an image of N’Kata Del Gormo, the only one of Yoda’s masters that was ever established in the Legends continuity.


What do you think? Would you like to see N’Kata Del Gormo make the jump to canon? Do you even want to know who Yoda’s master really was? Let us know in the comments or leave us a voicemail at speakpipe.com/childrenoftheforce


Liam asks a question from Star Wars Trivial Pursuit: How many puppeteers controlled Jabba’s head in Return of the Jedi?

OUTRO [51:30]

Thanks for listening! Send us a voicemail or email us at forcechildren@gmail.com if you want to take part in the discussion or just give us some feedback. Thanks!
