STAR WARSY STUFF [6:40]

We (sort of) finished our Clone Wars – Domino Squad watch-through and now it’s on to those creepy Nightsisters.

Speaking of creepy, we’re also listening to Dooku: Jedi Lost.

And I’m almost done with the unfortunately titled Alphabet Squadron. It’s pretty good.

Liam’s still making EDM. We play a short song.

We also read an email from Jack from Ottawa.

NEWS [30:35]

What the heck is a Sith Trooper?

We have theories.

Jon Favreau is already writing the second season of The Mandalorian.

And Daisy Ridley says that The Rise of Skywalker is “a nice full stop on the Skywalker series.”

CANON NEWS [51:05]

Even the characters in Alphabet Squadron think that name is ridiculous.

JOKE [52:45]

I tell a few awful starfighter jokes.

STUMP THE LUMP! [54:40]

What are the names of Savage Opress’ brothers?

We read an email from Jack from Ottawa and talk books and comic books.

Non-Starwarsy, we’re watching She-Ra now, and loving that His Dark Materials trailer that came out last weekend.

We talk the post-TROS break in movies and how three years is nothing when you look at all the awesome content we’re going to get between now and then.

We go over our Star Wars Day doings.

Anna’s started to read Master and Apprentice and likes it so far.

She also got into an argument with her teacher about The Phantom Menace. Which leads into the “20 things I love about The Phantom Menace” I’m doing over on twitter.

NEWS [27:40]

The Journey to the Rise of Skywalker books have been announced. Not a lot of big books coming out, but there’s enough to chew on.

Including this one by Rebecca Roanhorse, which has a glorious cover:

We also listen to a bit of the Galaxy’s Edge Suite by John Williams.

Why isn’t Kylo shooting Rey?

Why is he flying left? By the way, I made a video showing what it would look like if the movement went from left to right. Here it is:

Who’s fixing Kylo’s mask?

Is that the Death Star I or Death Star II?

Who is rising, exactly?

Will Rey be a Skywalker? And what could that even mean?

We answer (with informed speculation) all of these questions and more!

Then we listen to what J.J., K.K., and the actors have to say about the teaser and the movie.

Join us, and together we will figure this all out as father and son and daughter and listener…
