When Luke was meditating during that last fateful night on Ahch-To, when he touched his sister's mind from across the galaxy, he was also acknowledging a contact with both the "living" Force and the "cosmic" Force that he hadn't felt in years. And it led him to a very specific decision - one that went down the drain when Luke saw Rey and Kylo communing together. Punch it!

Rose and Finn argue a lot more, the fathiers create even more destruction, BB-8 puts the improv skills he learned from Poe to the test, and more! Continuing with our series of deep dives into The Last Jedi novelization, I'm digging into the fun stuff about the second half of Rose and Finn's adventures on Canto Bight that we didn't get to see in the movie. Punch it!

We're continuing our series of deep dives into the parts of The Last Jedi novelization that you may find will best enhance your next viewing of the movie! On today's episode, we're talking about Luke's second lesson for Rey, and a deleted scene from the movie that was not, as some people suggested, the third lesson. Punch it!

After being accused of "heavy pining" by Rose while they're at Canto Bight, Finn explains to Rose why Rey means so much to him. And also, Finn throws a bit of shade at the notion of Rey becoming a Jedi. This and more from the latest in our series of deep dives into The Last Jedi novelization... Punch it!

Epic Games, in collaboration with NVIDIA and ILMxLAB, debuted "Reflections" at the Game Developers Conference earlier this week. It's a demonstration of real-time ray tracing in Unreal Engine - in other words, the best-yet CG implementation of how light works in the real world. It's also a funny little First Order story that takes place on Supreme Leader Snoke's ship, the Supremacy, during the events of The Last Jedi. Punch it!

I've been reading Aftermath: Life Debt by Chuck Wendig as nighttime reading for Scorekeeper Declan, and a passage just appeared that may speak volumes about something we're bound to see in Solo: A Str Wars Story. It's a monologue by Han Solo that touches briefly on his relationship with Chewie, and what the two of them mean to each other. Punch it!

In today's deep dive into The Last Jedi novelization, we're looking at Lesson 1 of Rey's Jedi teaching from Luke Skywalker - as well as Rey's encounters with Kylo Ren before and after that session. As part of Rey's ruminations over that contact, we may have learned just how it was that she became so adept at using the Force so quickly... Punch it!

Remember how Finn kept talking over Rose when they were presenting the plan to Poe about how to get away from the First Order's hyperspace tracking? Finn's behavior always bothered me in that scene, and that feeling's only been deepened by the additional information we learn in The Last Jedi novelization. Punch it!

Was Poe a potential choice to take over the fleet while Leia was in a coma? And what did Rose think of Poe's sewing skills? (Hint: she was brutal about it.) That, plus mouth-watering porg roasts on tap in the next look at Part 3 of The Last Jedi novelization. Punch it!

Our next look at The Last Jedi novelization by Jason Fry digs into Rey's first days on the island of Ahch-To - how long it takes until Luke cracks and finally has a conversation with her in the Jedi library tree, the extra things they talk about that weren't in the movie, and a compelling statement from Luke that gets echoed in its own way by Kylo Ren later in the story. Punch it!

If Poe hadn't disobeyed Leia about the dreadnought, the dreadnought would have destroyed the Resistance fleet after tracking them through hyperspace. But Poe's disobedience with the Canto Bight mission and mutiny caused the deaths of most of the Resistance survivors! The lessons are challenging ones in The Last Jedi... Punch it!

We're jumping around a bit in our look at The Last Jedi novelization right now, and on today's episode, the scenes with Leia aboard the Raddus and Kylo Ren in his TIE Silencer tell the story of Ben's childhood in a series of flashes that illuminate the son's fall. That and more ultimately explain why he didn't kill her when he had the chance, but we still don't know how Snoke got his moist clutch on Ben in the first place. Punch it!

In today's episode, a continuation of the series of looks at the reveals from The Last Jedi novelization by Jason Fry, I'm getting into the scene we saw only the tail end of in the movie - the scene where General Hux explains how the Resistance's escape from D'Qar isn't a failure after all. We also get to see the first meeting between Rey and Luke, which goes about as well as it did in the movie... Punch it!

As of this recording, we don't yet know if this scene was filmed for The Last Jedi and not included, or if it was something written and never filmed, or even perhaps invented solely for the novel. That said, here's what you need to know about Han Solo's funeral - including two stories that date back to the original Star Wars and to Return of the Jedi, and two bits that seem to tie into Aftermath: Life Debt and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

He's back! Penguin Random House Audio producer Nick Martorelli returns to discuss another Star Wars audiobook creation - the novelization of The Last Jedi.

Think about your own answer, because that's how the interview kicks off... Punch it!

Lucasfilm announced today that Jon Favreau will be executive producing and writing a new Star Wars live-action TV series for Disney's upcoming "direct-to-consumer" (aka streaming) service. Let's talk about the details, including when we might expect to see its debut... Punch it!

How the creative team manages to skirt around that thing about how the Rebels first major victory was The Battle of Scarif is just the tip of the iceberg as far as the final episode of Star Wars Rebels is concerned. Part 2 of "Family Reunion - and Farewell" closed some loops, left others tantalizingly open, and showed how much Ezra Bridger has grown over the years. Punch it!

The pieces are all on the board, and the final plan is set in motion. I'm talking about part 1 of "Family Reunion - and Farewell," the series finale of Star Wars Rebels. Not only does Ezra's plan fail, but it plays right into Thrawn's hands. And the parallels between this episode and Return of the Jedi - straightforward and with various inversions - are more than a little remarkable. Punch it!

While borrowing from - and sometimes reversing - scenarios from both Return of the Jedi and J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Dave Filoni and crew created a memorable send-off for the Ghost team that was uniquely Star Wars Rebels, too. "Family Reunion - and Farewell" are the 15th and 16th episodes of the season, and the final episodes of this series. Punch it!

The title, a line taken from a Gandalf line in The Return of the King, evokes the folly of what the scant rebel contingent on Lothal is trying to pull off. And this is their Minas Tirith moment, with the last citadel of freedom and safety being assaulted by the might of the Empire. It's "A Fool's Hope," episode 14 from season 4 of Star Wars Rebels. And in this briefing, I'll freely admit that they had me fooled about former Lothal governor-turned-rebel Ryder Azadi. Punch it!

The spoilers are already out there, but they're not in here. On today's episode, I'm taking one last look at the footage we already have - from the midseason trailer, the teaser at the end of the last episode of Rebels Recon, and the "Let's Do This" sizzle video that debuted on the Star Wars YouTube channel a few days ago. Just by looking at those three pieces, it's pretty clear how the events of the series finale can be broken up into thirds themselves, one part each per episode for these last three experiences with the Ghost crew as we know them now. Punch it!

With four nominations and zero wins, The Last Jedi was shut out of the Oscar celebration on Sunday night. And this would be the seventh Star Wars production in a row from Lucasfilm to be shut out from the annual awards - a streak now spanning 37 years. Since the last winner was Best Sound Mixing for The Empire Strikes Back, it makes a person wonder: How much might this have to do with Hollywood holding a grudge against Lucasfilm and George Lucas over the opening crawl that caused Lucas to pay a $25,000 fine and quit the Director's Guild? Punch it!

This may be the longest interview I've ever done! On today's podcast, I'm sharing a snippet of an interview from the Star-B-Q Podcast, on one of their "Nibblers" episodes. Ironic, in a sense, since the full interview goes for two hours! For the snippet you'll hear here, I'm talking with their co-host Fode (yes, as in podrace announcers Fode and Beed) about Force users and non-users, and how the notion of being in a "flow state" is similar to what non-Force-users might be experiencing in the Star Wars universe. Punch it!

Could Ahsoka Tano make an appearance in Star Wars Rebels during the series finale on Monday, March 5? I'm looking back at the 10-card Topps series from the Star Wars Card Trader app released in 2016, and discussed by Dave Filoni at Star Wars Celebration Europe. Ahsoka's fate after her showdown with Darth Vader in "Twilight of the Apprentice" was mysteriously hinted at in those cards. And after last week's "A World Between Worlds" episode of Rebels, we may now know more about her post-Vader-fight time than ever before. Punch it!

Del Rey's latest timeline tells us nothing new about Solo: A Star Wars Story (even though a bunch of folks seem to think it does). We've learned more, in fact, from the news about the Solo publishing initiative courtesy of Lucasfilm's Michael Siglain, and from a brief excerpt of the upcoming Han and Lando novel. Also, Episode IX's script is finished, and could Leia be re-cast for IX? Punch it?

The Star Wars Rebels episode "A World Between Worlds" re-introduced the concept of time travel back into the Star Wars canon. Based on how the episode turned out, it might not feature as a plot element again any time soon. And that would be in alignment with how time travel was treated in the old Expanded Universe as well - it was an exceedingly rare thing, usually caused by some freak hyperspace travel issue or something unusual with the Force. On today's podcast, I'll also be talking about some of the characters who've previously been exposed to time travel situations in Star Wars. Punch it!
