And of course, now I want to play all of the Star Wars roleplaying games Fantasy Flight has to offer: The Force Awakens, Age of Rebellion, Edge of the Empire and Force and Destiny. If you were going to get Children of the Force something for Christmas, just pick from that list, please.

We’ve been keeping up with Rebels season 3 and loving it. Anna still thinks Thrawn is too smart.

A new Rogue One trailer! Watch it again:

And the kids’ reaction to watching it for the first time:

The first rule of trailers: Trailers lie.

We also got the poster for Rogue One. It’s glorious.

And, in my opinion, it’s waaaaaaay better than the poster announced at Star Wars Celebration Europe.

We talk about the new trading card images that were posted on Entertainment Weekly.

And we watch this new Duracell commercial that nearly made me cry.
