Back in June, I listed off seven huge challenges General Leia Organa could/would face in The Last Jedi. Well, thanks to the trailer release last month, and the Entertainment Weekly cover story this month, a new light has been shined on Leia's predicaments in The Last Jedi. With Vice Admiral Holdo taking the reins of Resistance leadership, what will Leia's mission become? The answer, it seems, has been right in front of us all along. Punch it!

One of the stories in "The Legends of Luke Skywalker" takes place largely in the Unknown Regions, around a planet only referred to as The Deep, with a space station orbiting it called The Gem. Based on the details of the story, and on Andy Serkis' comments about Snoke's character in Entertainment Weekly this week, is it possible that the events on The Gem are the inciting incident for Snoke's grudge against the New Republic? Punch it!

Now that we've studied the Legends of Luke Skywalker, what do we *really* know about him and his life in between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens? What have we been told - via one specific character's narrative - that might be totally incorrect? And if that's the case, how would a set of incorrect assumptions flip the story of Luke and Ben Solo on its ear? Punch it!

In The Empire Strikes Back, Luke Skywalker missed out on the fun of accidentally going inside the body of an exogorth - also known as a giant space slug. If "Big Inside" is to be believed, then Luke got his chance to explore one himself, in between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. It's the final Legend of Luke Skywalker... Punch it!

Was Lugubrious Mote there at Jabba's palace and at the Sarlacc Pit? Probably so. Did the story he told happen the way he told it? Probably not, but it's a wild ride all the same. "The Tale of Lugubrious Mote" is the fifth Legend of Luke Skywalker I'm examining... Punch it!

I know I said that yesterday's "Fishing in the Deluge" might have had the most factual information about Luke Skywalker out of all the Legends of Luke Skywalker. But today's story, "I, Droid," has been passed on by droids to other droids. Why isn't this the most accurate story? Punch it!

As opposed to yesterday's story, "Fishing in the Deluge" is quite possibly the Legend of Luke Skywalker that has the most truth to it. Why? The things Luke is quoted as saying, and the very familiar setting (despite the name given in the story). Punch it!

It's the second of six stories in The Legends of Luke Skywalker by Ken Liu, and in all honesty, it probably has the least to reveal to us about Luke Skywalker. But it does give us more insight into the Battle of Jakku and its aftermath. Punch it!

What more can we learn about Luke Skywalker and how he spent his time in between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens? Let's find out, shall we? On today's episode, I'm looking at the first of six stories in The Legends of Luke Skywalker by Ken Liu, this one entitled "The Myth Buster." And for a barnburner of a kick-off story, Ken's got a character cooking up the most incredible conspiracy theory you've ever heard, hands down. Punch it!

Finally! The cover story I've been promising you for months is arriving at newsstands now. It's Entertainment Weekly's final installment on The Last Jedi, a big cover story with lots of new photos and more information about the working relationship between Poe Dameron and Vice Admiral Holdo, to name one thing. But I'm burying the lede, so to speak.

Anthony Breznican, the author of the cover story (and all the stories contained therein, as well as the ones coming out on EW.com that are expansions of the print stories), joined me on the podcast today to talk about the making of the cover story, and to reveal a new feature coming next week. Punch it!

A new update to Star Tours rolled out at Disney Parks over the weekend, and it included a trip to the Graveyard of Giants on Jakku, the battle between the Resistance and the First Order on Crait, and a final arrival on Batuu, the planet we'll all visit when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens at Disney Parks in 2019. More details about Batuu in the podcast today... Punch it!

At Star Wars Celebration Europe, Rian Johnson named a few movies that he asked the Lucasfilm Story Group folks to watch, so that they would have a common cinematic language when it then came to discussing and preparing for his creation of The Last Jedi. One of those movies is Twelve O'Clock High, the 1949 movie about daylight precision bombers in World War II. I'm analyzing that movie with a special guest: writer and podcast producer Bobby Roberts. Punch it!

How might lightsabers work in real life, and how close are we to having them? Did Jango Fett make sound in space possible? And could Han's line about doing the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs have been an actual fact - not a mistake by Lucas, and not a retconned explanation of Han testing Ben and Luke? These are the topics I'll be discussing with Patrick Johnson, Georgetown University physics professor and author of the new book The Physics of Star Wars. Punch it!

How Rey and Daisy think differently about the porgs in The Last Jedi. What Carrie Fisher did that set Kelly Marie Tran at ease in a brand-new situation. What Ron Howard has been up to recently for Solo: A Star Wars Story. What I've been up to that will lead to interview podcasts this Saturday and Sunday. All this and more on today's podcast.

"Kick," "Permission," "Fight," and "Destiny" - those are the titles for four new commercials for The Last Jedi that have found their way online. I'll be discussing all of them today, but fair warning - if you don't want to know who says "May the Force be with you" in The Last Jedi, don't watch the "Kick" commercial, and only listen to this episode of the podcast through the commercial break. Punch it!

Dave Filoni intends to give Star Wars Rebels the definitive ending that Clone Wars never got. Knowing that, how does that affect how we look at the first half of this final season of Rebels? Is he "finishing business," as it were, and if so, what's left to finish in the final seven episodes that will make up the rest of season four? Punch it!

If you were saying to yourself, "I've got a bad feeling about this," your instincts were correct. You probably weren't sure where the bad news was going to hit you in "Rebel Assault" the mid-season finale of Star Wars Rebels. I've got the Rebels Briefing on Season 4, Episode 9 right here.

When you think about it, isn't it crazy that Rian Jonson's The Last Jedi is still more than a month away from theaters, and Lucasfilm is so high on it, they made a new three-picture deal with him? And that new trilogy he's creating will be worth at least $12 billion dollars in revenue, when you include the licensing and merchandising revenue? Punch it!

This has to have been my favorite episode of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny yet, out of all 16 episodes. "An Imperial Feast" confirms your worst nightmares about the Ewoks dietary habits; reveals that Hera and Chopper have survived the events of Rogue One and the whole Original Trilogy; and features deftly executed slapstick.

Well, not exactly, but close. Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels, in the middle of a job in Garel City, has a run-in with Rogue One's own Jyn Erso. Plus, Rey gets slimed by a happabore who ultimately does the right thing, and the Mandalorian-turned-bounty-hunter-turned-Rebel Ketsu does a few things I just don't understand. Punch it!

This may be the biggest Star Wars news of the year that's not related to The Last Jedi. Even though it kind of is related. Lucasfilm has revealed that Rian Johnson will be creating a brand-new Star Wars trilogy for the screen, and will write and direct the first of the movies in the trilogy. On today's podcast, I'm talking about the big questions that arise as a result of this announcement, and what this tells us about The Last Jedi. Punch it!

Can Hera convince Alliance High Command to attack the TIE Defender factory on Lothal - and rescue her crew in the process? Can the Rebels find their way back to the northern hemisphere in time to coordinate a ground assault? And what's with the ominous news that the Empire has invoked Protocol 13 - the same protocol invoked on Jedha just before the Death Star arrived in Rogue One? Most is answered in "Crawler Commandeers," episode eight of season four of Star Wars Rebels. As for the rest - well, we can guess... Punch it!

Action, romance, a mind-blowing lightspeed escape, and the most mystical moment this side of the Mortis Arc! "Kindred," the seventh episode of season four of Star Wars Rebels, really had it all. The Rebels got away with the TIE Defender flight data recorder, but now they need to go back for its hyperdrive - and hope it'll work when grafted onto a U-wing. Meanwhile, Thrawn has sent his assassin Rukh to track the Rebels down before they can get away. As shown in one of the preview clips, the Loth-wolves show up again, and open doors in ways no one ever expected. Punch it!

Kylo Ren may be the obvious answer, but there are others to consider: Vader, Palpatine, Snoke, even Rey herself as a little girl. Whose "raw strength" do Star Wars fans think Luke is talking about? And what is it about "raw strength" that scares Luke, anyway? Punch it!

Theresa Cheung is the author of more than 20 books on spirituality and personal transformation, and conducted multiple interview sessions with Church of Jediism founder Daniel M. Jones in order to bring "Become the Force: 9 Lessons on How to Live As a Jediist Master" to the world. My conversation with her about the book, the church, and Star Wars is right here for you. Punch it!

In honor of the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Church of Jediism and the upcoming release of "Become the Force: 9 Lessons on How to Live As a Jediist Master," I had a conversation with author and church founder Daniel M. Jones about how the church and the book came about, what the plans are for the church in its next decade, and what the founder of a church based on the Jedi teachings thinks when he hears Luke Skywalker saying it's time for the Jedi to end. Punch it!

What happened after Han, Finn, and Chewie stuffed Phasma down the garbage chute on Starkiller Base? Writer Kelly Thompson handles that question immediately, which means that there's a lot more compelling story space to fill in the Captain Phasma miniseries for Marvel. Punch it!

We got the international trailer we were looking for! Unfortunately, it didn't give much of anything away that was new or exciting. A couple new shots of characters and three words of dialogue, and that's about it. Meanwhile, the new 45-second commercial "Awake" is a lot more satisfying in terms of new sights to behold. Punch it!

"Flight of the Defender" isn't really just "The Occupation Part 2," even though it is the second part of a two-episode night for Star Wars Rebels. This is episode 6 of season 4, and we get to realize that when Ezra says he's there to stay, he might very well mean it. Plus, one hyphenated word: Loth-wolf. Punch it!
