After talking about our plans for seeing Rogue One, we discuss the last couple episodes of Rebels. The kids explain the plot of Iron Squadron, because I wasn’t all that sure what it was.

Liam drew some homemade Target ads last week. Check these out:


We talk about what the kids are talking about in school re: Rogue One. Liam said his classmates are quoting the trailers, which is awesome.


In honor of Rogue One, we discover how they made the sounds of the Death Star doors closing and opening.

NEWS [10:40]

Tickets for Rogue One have gone on sale in the UK. Hopefully that means we can buy them soon in the US?

The female lead of the Han Solo stand-alone has been announced. Emilia Clarke. We complain about the lack of diverse female leads in Star Wars, of course. And I’m hopeful that she’s playing Delia Leighton.

There’s a newish Star Wars Rogue One featurette that gives a great overview of what the movie’s about. Here it is:

This featurette confirms that Rogue One is PG-13 and yes, my 7 and 10 year old will be accompanying me to the movie on opening night. For more on ratings, listen to our episode 19, Rated F for Fun.

CANON NEWS [20:15]

From Catalyst, our canon news today is about enhanced overseer droids. Maybe they’re the K-2SO type? Maybe they’re these droids that we’ll see in season 3 of Rebels?

JOKE [26:50]

Which Jedi do blows things over? (And yes, there’s a reason that sentence is grammatically  awkward.)

Q&A COUNCIL [27:45]

Liam asks: What do you think is the funniest moment in all of Star Wars?

Anna asks: What’s your favorite jump-scare in all of Star Wars?


I quiz Anna and Liam in this week’s Stump the Lump:

What species is Greedo?
Which Jedi is a Nautolan?

OUTRO [37:55]
