Paige and Rose Tico are new additions to the Star Wars universe, but we learn precious little about them in the movie. Paige, if I recall correctly, doesn't even have a line of dialogue! Rose tells us they escaped from the First Order devastating their home world, and she's never a fathier in real life. But in Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Cobalt Squadron, we learn where they're from, how they escaped, and much more. Punch it!

In the days leading up to The Last Jedi, Cobalt and Crimson Squadrons - those would be the squadrons of Resistance bombers - we're on a secret mission in First Order territory, risking the provocation of open warfare first to spy on the First Order's activities in the Atterra system, and then to supply Atterrans attempting to fight back against the First Order occupation and blockade. That's the gist of Cobalt Squadron, the new junior novel by Elizabeth Wren that tells us what Rose and Paige Tico were up to prior to their onscreen appearances. Punch it!

With The Last Jedi on 700 fewer screens this weekend (under 1800 in total), and with weekend box office numbers projected at about $4 million, we're reaching the point where we can just about finalize The Last Jedi's performance in comparison to the top movies all time, domestic and global. I'm running down those rankings here, and revisiting (one last time) the reasons for why The Last Jedi performed the way it did at the box office (and which was pretty darn good overall). Punch it!

"From a Certain Point of View" is just the beginning. I'm talking with Nick Martorelli today - he's a producer with Penguin Random House Audio who's responsible for casting and overseeing production of the Star Wars programs. And yes, we'll talk about Jon Hamm and how he became part of the project. You also learn about how they chose the narrators for the different stories, and much more. We'll also be digressing for a bit (well, perhaps more than a bit) to talk about the NPR Star Wars radio dramas, too. Punch it!

It's one thing to merely read Shakespeare, and it's another thing entirely to see it performed. By the same token, it's one thing to merely read The Force Doth Awaken, the Shakespearean-style adaptation of The Force Awakens by Ian Doescher. But it's another entirely to bring it to life in an audiobook performance. On today's podcast, I'm interviewing Aaron Blank, co-executive producer for The Force Doth Awaken audiobook, and you and I will learn together what it takes to add a whole new dimension to a story in the Star Wars saga. Punch it!

After reading the lovable "Chewie and the Porgs" children's book, I've arrived at a rather inescapable conclusion: That our sweet Chewbacca is, in fact, a diabolical scoundrel. Because the book has to live in the same universe as the movie and The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary, the kindness with which Chewie treats the Porgs is akin to how people talk about keeping the stress levels of chickens as low as possible, because they allegedly taste better that way. Punch it!

The history of the Rebel outpost on Crait, and more about the First Order's heavy artillery - that's what's on tap for today's podcast. Also, we're following up on Episode 1,299 about Finn's defection with a note about why, specifically, Captain Phasma wants Finn dead. And it's not just because he's a First Order deserter. It's a very personal reason. Punch it!

The Last Jedi scored four Oscar nominations yesterday, for Original Score, Visual Effects, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing. I'll be putting this in historical perspective on today's podcast, as well as discussing a couple of Twitter revelations from Rian Johnson about the source of inspiration for Luke's presence on Crait in The Last Jedi, and what may have happened to his robotic hand in the aftermath. Punch it!

First, you need to know how the First Order reacts to disloyalty. (Hint: they're somewhat poor sports about it.) Then, you need to know just how wide a variety of duties and assignments are given to some stormtroopers. At that point, you can get a sense of how huge a deal Finn's desertion and betrayal of the First Order was, why they wanted to keep the lid on it, and how badly Captain Phasma wanted to see Finn dead. Punch it!

We know for a fact that Pablo Hidalgo has hidden clues about future movies in plain sight before - just look at the mention of Crait in the Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide for proof. What might he be hiding in The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary about Solo: A Star Wars Story and Episode IX? Well, maybe Episode IX is a stretch because we don't know how much, if anything, of the work Colin Trevorrow did is being used by J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio. (Probably not much, if anything.) But Solo: A Star Wars Story is much more of a known quantity to the Story Group... Punch it!

Star Wars fans love to talk about shipping in the new movies. Rey and Finn. Finn and Poe. Poe and Rey. Rey and Kylo Ren. Heck, people are even shipping Kylo Ren and General Hux now! Why do we care so much about shipping characters? Because we desperately want to see romance re-introduced as an element of Star Wars movies. And you only need to consider what the most critically acclaimed and fan-beloved Saga movie has, that none of the other ones have, to understand our deep desire for romance in Star Wars. Punch it!

The return of Ian McDiarmid as Emperor Palpatine has to be one of the biggest surprises about the finale trailer for Star Wars Rebels. But the trailer is almost as intriguing for what *isn't* there as for what is. Naturally, this opens the door to questions about the survival of all the characters through the end of the series. And there are more surprises, too - including the return of a certain-colored convor, the appearance of the "Ones," the ultra-powerful Force-wielders from the Mortis story arc of the Clone Wars, and Kanan giving himself a haircut Hera very much dislikes. Punch it!

We haven't been given the full picture of Luke's post-Return of the Jedi history yet, but we've been given some tantalizing clues thanks to The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary. In fact, we may be able to safely break that thirty-year time period into thirds based on what we now know about his activities. Whether that's an even three groups of ten years is still a mystery, but the book does potentially suggest that Luke and Ben may have parted ways years before Leia was aware of the schism. Punch it!

The Supreme Leader is dead. Long live the Supreme Leader! Just because Snoke is out of the picture, that doesn't mean it's not worth taking a deeper look at him to find out what the deal really is with him. After all, there could be more of him running around the Unknown Regions, right? Well, "running" may not be exactly right. But you get the idea. Also, apparently I'm teal color-blind, and that tree on Temple Island isn't what we thought it was. Punch it!

Before Captain Canady commanded a Dreadnought in the First Order, he served aboard a Star Destroyer in the Galactic Empire with the sweetest name for a Star Destroyer you've ever heard. Plus, more about the war profiteering in the galaxy; how many ships were sent after the fleeing Resistance ships; why Holdo's suicide shot was as super-damaging as it was; and the whole Star Destroyer/Battlecruiser naming thing - all that's on tap in today's deep dive into The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary.

Surprise! Lucasfilm released an official synopsis for Solo: A Star Wars Story today. What does it reveal about the movie that we didn't already know? I'm dissecting the 76-word statement and comparing it against what we already know about the movie thanks to Ron Howard's prolific social media posts. Punch it!

Why does Finn's jacket suggest more time passed in between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi than we previously thought?

Did you know? The Resistance scribbled secret messages on some of the bombs they dropped on the Dreadnought in The Last Jedi. I'm translating a couple of those Auerbesh messages - plus, does a location on the galactic map in The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary hint at something about Solo: A Star Wars Story? Punch it!

During "Safe Week" last month, I shared with you the details of the story mode for Star Wars Battlefront II, which continued the story of Iden Versio and Inferno Squad. Well, it ended in a cliffhanger that was to be resolved with the DLC for The Last Jedi. And now that it's been out for a while, so spoilers *shouldn't* be an issue, I thought it'd be a good time to finish the story and close the book on Iden, Del, their daughter Zay, and the man who wants them to destroy them all - their old squadmate, Gideon Hask, now an officer in the First Order. Punch it!

Fox moved Deadpool 2's release date from the week after Solo: A Star Wars Story to the week before it. Why does that give one box office expert a weird feeling? Also, the upcoming reshoots that aren't really "reshoots," per se, trailer anticipation, and some older news about a Star Wars legend contributing to the movie in this post-production update on Solo: A Star Wars Story. Punch it!

There are basically four kinds of stories in The Last Jedi Incredible Cross-Sections book: Business stories that give you a glimpse of the work of an industry; thumbnail stories provided in their entirety; hints at brand new events never detailed previously in the canon; and the re-introduction of elements from "Legends" (aka the old Expanded Universe). For the latter, one of the inclusions harkens back to the beloved Han Solo and the Lost Legacy. Punch it!

One of the (many) neat things about the Incredible Cross-Sections books from DK Publishing is the miniature stories you find included side by side with the descriptions of the vehicles being profiled in the book. And in some of those cases for The Last Jedi book, those stories and tidbits of background include information that had previously been the stuff of "Legends" - aka, the Expanded Universe. Punch it!

You know the Resistance bomber sequence in The Last Jedi, of course. Well, it left a lot of moviegoers (or, perhaps, a few very vocal moviegoers) scratching their heads. How did they get the bombs to drop in zero-G space? Why did they stay so close together that they could all be taken down by a chain reaction? And where were they for The Force Awakens, anyway? Well, these questions are all very convincingly answered in DK Publishing's Incredible Cross-Sections book for The Last Jedi. Punch it!

Finn told us that the siege cannon deployed by the First Order on Crait was "Death Star tech." Well, what kind of Death Star tech would power a giant laser cannon? If you guessed kyber crystals, you'd be right as rain. But here's the scary thing - that's not the only weapon in the First Order's arsenal powered by kyber crystals. And for all we know, Supreme Leader Snoke's ship could have had tons of them on board as cargo. Punch it!

Back when Captain Needa said, "No ship that small has a cloaking device!" about the Millennium Falcon, that's about all we knew about stealth tech in the Star Wars galaxy. Thirty years later, it seems the galaxy hasn't advanced very far in that field. On today's podcast, we're talking about what we've learned about stealth tech as a result of the events of The Last Jedi, with help from DK Publishing's new Incredible Cross-Sections book. Punch it!

Donald Glover on the reshoots, Ron Howard's silence on social media, the breaking of a three-movie box office streak, and the biggest question of all - when will we see the first trailer??? All that and more about Solo: A Star Wars Story on today's podcast, as well as some news that had been reported as being about Rian Johnson's new trilogy, but it has to be about Episode IX in reality. Punch it!

Thanks very much to Justin Bolger, Social Media Strategist at Lucasfilm, for helping me look at the decisions made - especially by Poe Dameron - in a new and more charitable light. If you remove the value judgments, there are no "good" or "bad" decisions. There's just "human" decisions, as Justin put it. Today, I'm taking a look at how those all-too-human decisions nearly caused the death of the Resistance. Punch it!

Console games, mobile games, and virtual reality - for a while there, we thought that we were going to get a lot more storytelling out of the new releases. That we were going to learn more about that galaxy far, far away with every new release. Well, it seems that won't exactly be the case, based on 2017 and what little there is to be known about 2018 so far. Battlefront II and location-based VR experiences may be our best bet for digital storytelling in the Star Wars universe. Punch it!

Marvel's only revealed their plans for the first three months of 2018 so far. But based on what they've done over the past couple of years, we can make some pretty safe educated guesses about what they might have up their sleeves that they're not telling us yet. Punch it!

We know some of what's coming in 2018, we can guess at a few more, and even with all that there's still a huge gap in what's been announced. I'm going over all the details about the novels from Del Rey and Disney, the reference books from DK Publishing, and unique items from some smaller publishing houses as well. Punch it!

Star Wars Rebels is entering its home stretch, as the final seven episodes of the series should be released in the first three months of the year. After that, what happens? I've got updates for you on Forces of Destiny, the recently-announced live-action Star Wars series, and what's next from the animation department. Punch it!

The Last Jedi finishes its run. Solo: A Star Wars Story debuts. Episode IX begins and likely finishes principal photography. Rian Johnson's trilogy development gets underway. And maybe we get an announcement about a previously rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, too? It's going to be a busy year for Star Wars movies... Punch it!
