The fate of Ahsoka Tano is revealed - to a degree - in "A World Between Worlds," episode 13 from season 4 of Star Wars Rebels. in the process, we also learn that we've seen this world between worlds before, and in a huge leap for the Star Wars canon, an element that was pretty rare to begin with in the old Expanded Universe has been reintroduced: time travel. Punch it!

In an episode that owes a debt to Raiders of the Lost Ark, "Wolves and a Door" gives us the first real idea of what's so special about the Jedi Temple on Lothal. "It's a conduit between the living and the dead," Palpatine says, which makes for some bold foreshadowing - especially when coupled with the visions and voices the remaining Ghost crew members hear on their journey with the loth-wolves to the temple, as well as one very obvious (and another not-so obvious) reference to Ahsoka Tano, too. Punch it!

Once again, the creative team behind Star Wars Rebels is playing it close to the vest. Despite two clips shown for the upcoming episodes "Wolves and a Door" and "A World Between Worlds," the clips are only from one of them ("Wolves"), and they only show the moments before the big action of the episodes. That makes them very similar to the "Jedi Night"/"DUME" clips we got. But because we've already gotten two of the seven episodes in this final half of the final season, we can look back at the mid-season trailer to see what else we already know. Plus, what is the big "revelation" they're hinting at? Punch it!

Recently I had the pleasure of being a guest on Tim McMahon's "Less Than Twelve Parsecs" podcast again, this time for his "Conversations" series - which are much longer interviews than his normal "fastest podcast in the galaxy" episodes. For the conversation, Tim had one question to start, and I'm sharing a piece of that conversation starter on today's episode. Punch it!

I've been thinking a lot about how Rian Johnson revealed that the Force power Luke Skywalker used to project his image across the galaxy came from the (now-Legends) reference book "The Jedi Path." Some people were upset about this new power, and got really worked up over it. But it occurred to me that it should have been accepted much more easily. After all, every single Star Wars Saga movie has introduced at least one new Force power. Punch it!

Here we go ... if you want to know the story of Secrets of the Empire, I'm here to give it to you! This is a full-spoiler podcast - if you just want the review of the experience with no spoilers, check out the previous episode (1,329). But if you want to know what happens in Secrets of the Empire - including the characters you'll meet, and what the "secret" really is, then strap in for the details. Punch it!

Episode 1,330 will have the spoiler-filled story of Secrets of the Empire, the new Star Wars virtual reality experience created by The Void, ILMxLAB, the Lucasfilm Story Group, and writer David S. Goyer (of the Christopher Nolan Batman movies). This one talks about the experience itself, and what it's like to step into the Star Wars galaxy as envisioned in this very unique creation. Punch it!

The "devastating loss" suffered by the Ghost crew is the focus of "DUME," episode 11 of season 4 of Star Wars Rebels. Each member of the crew deals with it in a different way, but the way forward after the loss comes in a dream featuring the biggest loth-wolf you've ever seen. Punch it!

The second half of the final season of Star Wars Rebels started quietly and ended with a bang. This is a no-spoiler description of the fact that this podcast episode will be a full-spoiler discussion of "Jedi Night," episode 10 from season 4 of the Star Wars cartoon series. If you haven't watched "Jedi Night" yet and don't want it spoiled for you, save this podcast for a later date. Otherwise... Punch it!

The log line for "Jedi Night" tells us Hera will be rescued. Nothing new there - we saw as much in the mid-season trailer for Star Wars Rebels. But the log line for "DUME" mentions a "devastating loss." Of course, that's more fuel for the "Kanan Dies" fire. But based on what we saw in the mid-season trailer, there's another very logical explanation that could also explain how the Ghost crew needs to find a "new purpose and resolve." Punch it!

Yoda's infamous line from Return of the Jedi has something to do with this notion. But basing the theories of Kanan's death during Rebels means you have to make a couple of assumptions that I don't think are safe to make. One of them has to do with whether Kanan actually remains a Jedi, and the other has to do with how long it will be in-universe between the end of Star Wars Rebels and Yoda's proclamation. Plus, we'll explore a couple of (potentially unintentional) information drops that may bear on this whole question. Punch it!

The first half of season 4 of Star Wars Rebels finished off the storylines for the Mandalorians and Saw Gerrera as they related to the Ghost crew in its first four episodes, and then turned its focus to Lothal for the final five. Now, we've got seven episodes left in the series, but before those start dropping on Monday the 19th, we're recapping the major events of the first half of the season. Punch it!

Jon Favreau voicing an "very cool & important alien character." Warwick Davis involved in post-production recording work. And new toys announced ahead of New York Toy Fair confirm the existence of a planet in the movie that had been oh so strongly hinted at by director Ron Howard. Plus, the outside inspirations on Solo: A Star Wars Story, and a message from J.J. Abrams about Episode IX that was shared at the D23 Expo in Japan. Punch it!

Back in March 2017, Bob Iger said four very crucial things about Solo: A Star Wars Story. This was back before they had even announced the name of the movie! Iger revealed the timeline of the movie; the fact that he'd be "acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee"; and that we'd learn how "he got his name." Well, now, with all the footage and the Entertainment Weekly features, we can start fleshing out the details of Iger's points. Punch it!

Yes, I did a podcast earlier this year about how we're missing romance as a crucial element of the sequel movies. That's not to say there aren't love-like relationships happening in there - or in the other movies as well. Today, I'm looking at what I'd consider to be the most important love relationship in each movie. And again, that could also be brotherly love, comrade-in-arms love, familial love, or something else entirely, at least in one case. Punch it!

Two planets in Solo: A Star Wars Story have been confirmed outright: Corellia (Han's homeworld), and Mimban, the swamp planet you may remember from the earliest days of the Expanded Universe. A third one has been strongly hinted at: Kessel, of the infamous spice mines. Now, thanks to the commercial and the teaser for Solo - and one other source we've talked about before - we now have information that puts the planet total anywhere between four and six (with more potentially to come). Punch it!

Han Solo is surrounded by strong women in Solo: A Star Wars Story ... even if one of those "women" is a droid with a female personality. Still counts. :-) In today's podcast, I'm digging into the details shared about Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke), Val (Thandie Newton) and L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) in the Entertainment Weekly cover story on Solo: A Star Wars Story. I'm focusing on the details I think you'll find to be the most interesting, and as it turns out, Emilia Clarke has a lot to say not just about Qi'ra, but about Han Solo and the movie itself. Punch it!

Today, revisiting the whole director change, and the unexpected sources of inspiration and contribution to the movie - including the advice given by Harrison Ford and also by the man who invented this whole crazy mixed-up galaxy to begin with, George Lucas.

The commercial, the trailer, the performance of Alden Ehrenreich, the "troubled" production ... these are all topics up for discussion when I join Todd van der Heyden from CTV News in Toronto to talk about Solo: A Star Wars Story.

He didn't utter a line of dialogue, and appeared in only five shots in the commercial and the teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story. What is it about Donald Glover's performance as Lando Calrissian that they're trying to hide form us??? Just kidding, of course. It is kind of funny that no one complained about that, though ... but then again, Lucasfilm may have followed the "less is more" strategy that dates all the way back to Boba Fett and Aurra Sing. And when you think about it, there were a couple of signature Lando elements in even those brief snippets. Punch it!

For one thing, he's not the Han Solo we meet in the cantina on Tatooine because he hasn't become that person yet. So what we're hearing in the commercial and the teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story is the forming of that scoundrel. And in the process, we're getting a look at the depths of the character - and possibly a deeper character than we expected him to be. Punch it!

in a surprise announcement from Lucasfilm, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss - best known as the creators of HBO's Game of Thrones - have been tapped to helm a new "series" of Star Wars movies. No release date has been set, except that that can't get to work on it until after the end of Game of Thrones. But that's enough information for us to project the Star Wars slate of movies all the way into 2026. Punch it!

Hot on the heels of the teaser commercial released during Super Bowl Sunday, the good folks at Lucasfilm gave us a full teaser trailer, released during Good Morning America. In addition to offering new footage, it also helps to expand our understanding of things we saw in the Super Bowl commercial. I'll be digging into that today, and sharing seven top takeaways from the teaser. Punch it!

You may have seen various media outlets reporting that the "studio" - aka Lucasfilm - has "confirmed" the appearance of the first Solo: A Star Wars Story on Good Morning America on Monday, February 5th. (Today!) But if you look at all of Lucasfilm's official channels, as of 1:30pm ET on Sunday there's been no such announcement at all. So where is this "news" coming from? Is it legit? And to add to the intrigue: Though they've yet to do a commercial during the Super Bowl, there's a rumor going around that they'll break that trend with a :45 second Solo spot. And Pablo Hidalgo hasn't tweeted has annual denial... Punch it!

Yesterday, I talked with Jason Fry, the author of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Incredible Cross-Sections. Today, his other half (so to speak!) joins me - that would be Kemp Remillard, the illustrator who's brought his talents to the last two Incredible Cross-Sections books, as well as the Rogue One Visual Guide and the recently updated Star Wars: Complete Locations. Punch it!

Jason Fry is the author or co-author of a number of Star Wars reference books (and fiction books, too), including one of his most recent works, The Last Jedi Incredible Cross-Sections by DK Publishing. And though that's the focus of what Jason and I will be talking about on this episode, the conversation's going to take a couple of interesting turns, too. Punch it!

Why is Rose not on the Resistance Bomber with her sister Paige for the battle over D'Qar in The Last Jedi? The novel Cobalt Squadron has the answer, which involves a direct request from none other than Vice-Admiral Holdo herself. Also, the shot from Starkiller Base that destroyed the Hosnian system? If you were in hyperspace when it happened, you felt it big time. Punch it!
