STAR WARSY STUFF [1:55]

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.

WHAT’S THAT SOUND? [7:50]

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?

STUMP THE LUMP! [34:40]

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

What species is Greedo?
Which Jedi is a Nautolan?

OUTRO [37:55]
