It’s episode 112 of Children of the Force!
Throw us a buck, you will…
STAR WARSY STUFF [3:40]
I’m wearing these sweet Inkkas shoes nowadays at school.
Liam and I finished Jason Fry’s Servants of the Empire series and strongly recommend it. And now we’re reading Chewbacca and the Forest of Fear, which is significantly sillier.
And as I write this, we just picked up Solo at Target. Looking forward to diving into the special features … and eventually watching the movie again!
Gary Kurtz, one of the fathers of the Force, has passed away.
Matt Smith and Dominic Monaghan have been added to the cast of Episode IX.
A new Resistance video: Meet the Aces. I mistakenly said this was the Team Fireball video in the podcast. Anyway, looks cool!

We talk about what Bob Iger said about Solo and the future rate of Star Wars movies in a Hollywood Reporter interview (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/bob-iger-disneys-streaming-service-james-gunn-star-wars-slowdown-1145493):
“I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made — I take the blame — was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn’t mean we’re not gonna make films. J.J. [Abrams] is busy making [Episode] IX. We have creative entities, including [Game of Thrones creators David] Benioff and [D.B.] Weiss, who are developing sagas of their own, which we haven’t been specific about. And we are just at the point where we’re gonna start making decisions about what comes next after J.J.’s. But I think we’re gonna be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that.”
