Operation Cinder was part of Emperor Palpatine's infamous "Contingency" - his plan to have the Empire washed away from the face of the galaxy in the event of his own death. It already has ties to the Star Wars comics (Shattered Empire) and novels (the Aftermath trilogy). Now, it's tied into video games with Star Wars Battlefront II, as Admiral Garrick Versio is drawn into the operation. His daughter, Commander Iden Versio, may be as well, but Garrick has other orders for her first. Plus, what Domhnall Gleeson (The Force Awakens' General Armitage Hux) has to say about the script of The Last Jedi and the selection of J.J. Abrams for Episode IX. Punch it!

Inspired by BB-8 on the Run - which, when you consider it, you discover that Tuanal can't have been too far away from Rey's AT-AT home - and by the fact that every important abandoned child in Star Wars has had someone benevolent and nearby to help with their upbringing. So, the question is, who was that for Rey? I put out a poll, and the results may shock you. Plus, an overseas movie chain may have revealed the runtime of The Last Jedi. Punch it!

Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill have been two of the loudest proponents of keeping the runup to The Last Jedi as spoiler-free as possible. So of course they would be the two folks picked to be primarily interviewed for the traditional Empire Magazine (three years in a row is a tradition, right?) cover story on the coming Star Wars movie. But there are a couple of surprises in the article, to be sure - including at least one item which confirms a leak that had been kicking around the internet for a while. Plus, on a side note, I think I've realized who the Knights of Ren really are. Punch it!

A children's picture book? Color me surprised, too. But the artwork is absolutely stunning, and the story's got its fair share of twists and surprises. It's called "BB-8 on the Run," and I'm talking about it on the podcast today. I'll also spend a little time going all Conspiracy Theory on you, and talking about who could have been (benevolently) keeping an eye on Rey all these years... Punch it!

A coming of age story at the nexus of politics, tyranny, and rebellion, Leia: Princess of Alderaan manages to tie the Prequel Trilogy, Original Trilogy, Sequel Trilogy, and even a standalone movie into one utterly believable package, with a dynamic character taking her place in the center of it all. Punch it!

It's just one line in the novel Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray, but it was enough to launch a thousand internet articles. Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, being played by Laura Dern in The Last Jedi, appears as a young woman in the Leia novel and says something that opens the door to wondering if she'll be the first openly LGBTQ character in a Star Wars movie. Punch it!

82 and 243 days, respectively! That how long you have to wait (at the very least) for The Last Jedi and the young Han Solo movie to hit theaters. But in case you're wondering where they're at with the whole moviemaking thing, I've got updates on the very end of The Last Jedi's production, and the new progress on the Han Solo movie thus far. Punch it!

It's true - Saw Gerrera planned an attack with his Partisans that nearly killed Princess Leia at 16 years of age. Oh, not intentionally of course! But still. I'm digging into this in today's podcast, as well as talking about Saw's intended target, and the uncomfortable observations he was making about Leia prior to his assassination. Punch it!

It's a good bet that Leia is going to wind up on or near Crait during the events of The Last Jedi. But it won't be her first time there. In fact, her first time there would have happened 37 years before the events of The Last Jedi, considering what we learn from the new novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan. Punch it!

"Watch Monday Night Football on Monday October 9th- for no reason in particular." That's the tweet that launched a thousand blog posts about the possibility that Mark Hamill was telling the truth - we're going to get the final trailer for The Last Jedi on 10/9. He's since deleted it, saying "I have no idea. Disney will announce when they are ready. #WaitForVIIITrailer." But can that genie go back into the bottle? Punch it!

As I mentioned in yesterday's podcast, the novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan is thick with connections to other media, and meaningful encounters. Today, I'm talking about one of each. Leia conducts her first humanitarian mission, which happens to be to Wobani, the prison planet on which we see the adult Jyn Erso for the first time in Rogue One. We also get to witness the veiled threats in the first meeting of Leia and Grand Moff Tarkin. Punch it!

Admit it - based on the two images you've seen of Laura Dern as Resistance Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, you've constructed an idea about her character in your mind. She's gotta be tough as nails to work in an organization with Leia and get up to that rank, right? Well, when she's introduced in Leia: Princess of Alderaan, she'll absolutely shatter your expectations. Punch it!

15 character descriptions were revealed via the "Find the Force" app inside the official Star Wars smartphone app during the Force Friday II weekend. In many cases, the information in those descriptions was the same as what was posted to the StarWars.com Databank in August. But in some cases - like with Maz Kanata, Chewie, Leia, and others - we got new information. Punch it!

John Boyega, a few months ago, said something in an interview that someday will be referred to as him famously saying, "Star Wars will always be the star of Star Wars." And its that insight that ties in so well to the apparent problems behind the scenes with Colin Trevorrow. No, Boyega wasn't speaking about Trevorrow when he said it. It just happens to line up very well with comments from two anonymous industry insiders being quoted about the whole Trevorrow dust-up. Punch it!

Surprise! GQ magazine has landed moments with not one, but two iconic Star Wars actors. For the American edition, Harrison Ford is the cover story feature. Among the topics discussed, a question of whether Han Solo is, indeed, dead. For the British folks, Mark Hamill was named "Icon of the Year," and in addition to celebrating him and other honorees, they also recorded a video with some of his career reflections - including musings on Canto Bight and a pointed avoidance of a certain lightsaber question. Punch it!

Not only was the cover of the Canto Bight novella collection revealed on Wednesday (featuring two new Star Wars vehicles), the descriptions of the four novellas were also revealed. Is it more like "Before the Awakening" or "Tales From a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens Volume 1? I'll dig into that, as well as which character from the four novellas we have the best chance of seeing and noticing on the big screen. Also, there's been yet another shift in the production schedule for Episode IX, and I've got the details. Punch it!

Also on the show today: gorilla walkers, Canto Bight, "space horses," and much more. Plus, a further update on the news of J.J. Abrams taking over the mantle of Episode IX. Punch it!

Lucasfilm made the safe choice by re-hiring Force Awakens director/co-writer J.J. Abrams to be the new director/co-writer for Episode IX. As opposed to Larry Kasdan, the newly announced co-writer with Abrams will be Chris Terrio, who won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for Argo, and who also has his name attached to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

With 256 days left before the premiere of the as-yet-untitled Han Solo movie, Ron Howard is posting photos of a rougher part of the galaxy - bar fights and all. Plus, I've got a theory about someone who could be making a cameo appearance in the movie, based on some recent social media activity. Don't worry, it's not a spoiler-y kind of thing... Punch it!

The description of the Elite Praetorian Guard in the StarWars.com Databank includes a curious choice of verb tense as it relates to Supreme Leader Snoke. That's the first topic I'm covering on today's podcast, in which I'm rounding out the coverage of the Force Friday II toy reveals, and also talking about (with fair warning to avoid it if necessary) what "DJ" might stand for, according to the Auerbesh plaque on the hat of his Funko Pop vinyl figure.

Where were we, before we were so rudely interrupted by the departure of Colin Trevorrow from Star Wars Episode IX? Ahh, yes, we were looking at the new entries in the StarWars.com Databank together - specifically, new entries related to The Last Jedi. Let's get back to that, shall we? On tap today: much ado about Crait. Punch it!

You can understand - sort of - why you'd see stories questioning whether Lucasfilm is in trouble. With all the directorial upheavals happening, and with a voracious entertainment news cycle built on clickbait and anxiety, it's almost a given. But there are many, many reasons to relax and repeat after me: "In Kathleen Kennedy I trust." Punch it!

Only two names are being bandied about by "inside sources" to replace Star Wars Episode IX director/co-writer Colin Trevorrow. However, there are a lot of other websites posting claims about who else would/could/should be considered as a replacement director. I'm digging onto all of that here, as well as opining on why it's high time to get a woman on board to direct a Lucasfilm project. Punch it!

With a short and sweet statement on StarWars.com, Lucasfilm again rocked the Star Wars fandom with the announcement that they were parting ways with Colin Trevorrow, the director and co-writer of Star Wars Episode IX. This one came as a surprise - there'd been no inside sources claiming anything was wrong prior to the announcement. (The foofaraw over Trevorrow's flop with "The Book of Henry" was essentially muck-raking - people trying to start trouble where no trouble had been reported.) Today, I'm talking about what the Hollywood trades are saying about the move, and what's going to happen next. Punch it!

The action figures for Luke Skywalker are decidedly unaccessorized - he comes with nothing but his clothes and his robot hand. Not even a glove for it! But there's something about his belt that should make you oooh and aaah for a moment. Would Hasbro ever do a mail-in campaign for people to get his lightsaber after the fact? Seems like a lot to do for a tiny play piece, but I wonder... And also today, I'm digging into the updates to the StarWars.com Databank, starting with Luke, Rose, and the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner. Punch it!

In the Sphero app (for controlling the BB-8, R2-D2, and BB-9E droids), there's a whole series of datascreens that reveal information about Supreme Leader Snoke's flagship, "Supremacy." I'm digging into those reveals today, and connecting them to what's depicted on the BB-8 mega-playset that opens up to reveal a First Order facility. (There's a throne room for Supreme Leader Snoke, more locations within the space, and depicted appearances by Rose, Finn, and Rey.) Punch it!

In an interview with CTV News (think of it as the CNN of Canada), I talked with host Todd van der Heyden about the business of Force Friday and the hopes of Star Wars fandom for The Last Jedi. Plus, a couple of ships and their names have been revealed, from an official and unlikely source. Punch it!

When Force Friday arrived, I didn't have to go it alone this year. I reached out to Bryan Fontaine of Jedi Scavenger (a collecting-focused podcast), which is also part of the Brick City Blockade podcast network. He happened to be coming to the same Toys R Us at which I'd been going for the past two years... Punch it!

What's it like to attend a midnight opening at Toys 'R Us for #ForceFriday? I'll give you the vibe, share what I've learned about the Crait battle, and give you a preview of the reveals coming down the pike over the next few days. Punch it!
