We’re watching through the Lord of the Rings movies. They’re great.

We also started watching Steven Universe.

And Bart from Belgium sent us an email.

NEWS [12:40]

Jon Favreau is up for doing a new Star Wars Holiday Special for Disney+. We talk about what we’d like to see. For me, it’s Billie Lourd doing an homage to Carrie Fisher’s Life Day song. And the two Lando’s meeting up in the world between worlds.

We also talk about that Bob Iger book and what he had to say about George Lucas and the sequels.

And Triple Force Friday is nearly upon us!

Savi and Lor were buds.

We start the episode off with some bad news about Children of the Force guest Emma’s mom’s stage 4 breast cancer. Thankfully, there’s something you can do to help, please go to the GoFundMe page and donate to help out this family, who are basically our family. For every $20 donated, I’ll send you a 1977 Star Wars trading card of your choice (I have most of them, you’ll get your pick).

Here’s their GoFundMe page: Help our friend Erin fight Stage IV cancer

No amount is too small or too large. And please let me know if you donate.

NEWS [17:40]

We have some The Mandalorian news. Man, do I hate typing that. I wish there was a rule that titles couldn’t start with articles. Anyway, Entertainment Weekly gave us a few photos and some snippets of information.

A couple corrections and clarifications from last episode.

Non-Star Warsy stuff: We’re watching Lord of the Rings, the first time for the kids.

NEWS [7:30]

We talk all the goodness out of D23.

First the teaser poster and the teaser for The Rise of Skywalker:

Then we discuss the confirmed Obi-Wan show for Disney+.

We also talk about that Mandalorian trailer.

Say hello to Kuiil the Ugnaught:

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!

CANON NEWS [32:45]

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

I finished Alphabet Squadron.

We’re super excited for His Dark Materials and all the upcoming Marvel goodness that was revealed at SDCC over the weekend.

NEWS [14:20]

New Vader Immortal posters show us some of the cool stuff happening in that game: https://www.starwars.com/news/ilmxlab-vader-immortal-character-posters

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?

sith-trooper-hot-toys-sdcc-2019-c
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?
