We start this episode off in memory of Carrie Fischer, reading some tributes to her and giving just a bit of our own thoughts.

Here are the two images we reference. First Dave Filoni put this up on Twitter:

STAR WARSY STUFF [12:20]

First, we talk about how much we appreciate our new patrons Alethea and Nick from London and his family. Impossible to state how much we appreciate all of the support from all of our patrons.

Second, I apologize for an unintentionally sexist comment that I made in the last episode that made it sound like only men play football. My mistake. Sorry. And I’ll try to do better.

Then we talk about some of the cool Star Wars stuff we got for Christmas. It’s the most Star Warsy time of the year!

My favorite present is the Crokinole board I got from my brother. Or as it’s known in the Ahsoka novel: Crokin.

Then we launch into this great piece on the Entertainment Weekly website about kids and Rogue One. Give it a read. The kids really liked this article, too:

And here’s the video of Riz Ahmed talking about the #10for10 campaign to help out Syria and Syrian refugees.

Then we discuss some Rogue One bits and bobs.

CANON NEWS [48:20]

Two words: Bor Gullet.

JOKE [49:45]

How did Bodi know that Bor Gullet was going to wrap those tentacles around him? ok
Why did Bodi think Bor Gullet was a Rathtar?
What did Bodi do after Bor Gullet looked into his mind?
Which rebel is really great at chess?

Q&A COUNCIL [51:50]

What’s your favorite Princess Leia moment? We’d love to hear answers from our listeners. Go to speakpipe.com/childrenoftheforce to leave us a voicemail.
