STAR WARSY STUFF [2:05]

The kids and I are loving Rebels so far this season. Some hard questions are being asked about what’s right and wrong when it comes to fighting.

WHAT’S THAT SOUND? [5:15]

You’ll never guess where the sound for the Rancor’s growl comes from.

We recently watched Rebels: Heroes of Mandalore. We do a review of those two episodes in the second half of this episode.

Not Star Warsy, but we started reading Philip Pullman’s The Book of Dust, Volume 1: La Belle Sauvage. It’s amazing, and if you liked the His Dark Materials trilogy, read this book.

We also love the new Battlefront II trailer. Watch it here:

And here’s the full dialogue text of The Last Jedi trailer:

Snoke: When I found you, I saw raw, untamed power. And beyond that, something truly special.

Rey: Something inside me has always been there. But now it’s awake. And I need help.

Luke: I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.

Kylo: Let the past die. Kill it if you have to. That’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.

Chewie: Raawwwarr’arrrrr!

Porg: Aieee! Aieee!

Poe: We are the spark that’ll light the fire that’ll burn the First Order down.

Finn: Come on!

BB-8: Bewow.

Luke: This is not going to go the way you think.

Snoke: Fulfill your destiny.

Rey: I need someone to show me my place in all this.

I’m loving the Find the Force feature of the Star Wars app. We talk a bit about the descriptions of characters from The Last Jedi that were revealed in the app.

I finished the Phasma book. It’s good, but not really for kids. Gets pretty brutal.
