STAR WARSY STUFF [2:30]

We’re in the thick of Dooku: Jedi Lost and it’s bringing up some complicated ideas surrounding teaching and knowledge and whether or not it’s always better to know than to not know.

Thrawn: Treason doesn’t spark the same level of discussion, but I’m reading that, too. It’s Thrawny.

I publish a correction and illustrate the difference between Lats Razzi and Sugi.


NEWS [13:00]

We have the trailer for season 2 of Resistance, and sadly also the news that it will be the last season.

In sillier news, the Star Wars Kids youtube channel has a new show: Star Wars Roll Out.

Check out the first episode:

Don Williams says that “every theme” will be in The Rise of Skywalker. I can’t wait to see how they utilize Jabba’s theme. More tuba. That’s what Star Wars needs.

The Star Wars Barbies are pretty much as cool as they can be while still being Barbies:

Allegiance has a new blurb.

And the Obi-Wan movie rumor has now turned into the Obi-Wan Disney+ rumor. And it’s getting legs!

This week’s Canon News comes from excerpts released from the upcoming book, Secrets of the Jedi.

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.

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 cover some Disney+ news that came out during Celebration.

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