It’s episode 50 of Children of the Force!
This episode comes to you from simpler times (the Monday before the election). It’s an episode where we look back on the fun we’ve had while creating more fun memories. The key word in all of this is “fun.”
Throw us a buck, you will…
First we take a trip down memory lane and talk about some of the stuff we did on our very first episode. Then…
STAR WARSY STUFF [7:00]
Amy’s kids and Nick both answer our question about their scariest moment in Star Wars.
Liam is working on his Star Wars Stickman comic. He’s finished issue 1 and is working on issue 2. Here’s an image from the comic:
I saw Doctor Strange in IMAX 3D over the weekend, which means I got to also see the Rogue One trailer in IMAX 3D. It was epic.
The kids’ grandma knows what’s up with Rogue One.
WHAT’S THAT SOUND? [15:15]
How did they make the sound of Han slicing the Tauntaun open?
Donald Glover is young Lando in the Han Solo standalone. Which means Lando is going to be in the Han Solo standalone!
Daisy Ridley sort of said that we’ll find out about Rey’s parents in Episode VIII.
Gary Whitta showed us the Mexican poster for Rogue One on Twitter. It gives us a good view of Yavin IV. Check it out:
CANON NEWS [23:15]
They play Crokinole in Star Wars! This game has some deep personal meaning to me and I’m so happy to read all about Ahsoka playing it with friends in the new Ahsoka novel.
Here’s Anna playing a game with me last time we were at my parents.
An oldie, but a goodie knock knock joke:
Q&A COUNCIL [31:50]
We rank all Star Wars movies from favorite to least favorite. We also revisit our rankings from the past. Liam thinks that when Rogue One comes out, it will be at the top of our lists. “It is going to be great. It’s going to be awesome.”
STUMP THE LUMP! [49:30]
Liam tries and succeeds in stumping me by asking a nearly impossible question about the name of the blaster on the top of the snow speeder we pretty much never see in The Force Awakens.
