Teedo's string of griping is the funniest thing in this season of Forces of Destiny so far. And the episode "Bounty Hunted" is possibly the most significant one from a storytelling perspective in the whole season. Punch it!

In the first Last-Jedi-time-period episode of Forces of Destiny, Rose, Finn, and BB-8 get caught in a scene reminiscent of Finding Nemo, and Jyn Erso gets stuck dealing with another street urchin, this time one who's out to steal from her. It's "Shuttle Shock" and "Jyn's Trade," episodes 3 and 4 from Season 2 of Forces of Destiny. Punch it!

We're kicking off our look at season two of Forces of Destiny with "Hasty Departure," in which Chopper utters an anachronism not exactly on par with Chewbacca's "Tarzan" yell, but in the neighborhood; and "Unexpected Company," in which Ahsoka can't leave a tender moment alone between Anakin and Padme. Punch it!

HBO programming president Casey Bloys recently provided an update on the production of the final season of Game of Thrones. The news about when those last episodes will be aired gives us a glimpse at a timeframe for when showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss could get started in earnest on their Star Wars series. Punch it!

Previously, it seemed like the first movie in Rian Johnson's planned Star Wars trilogy wouldn't arrive until 2021 at the earlier. Might it come even sooner, in 2020? A development from earlier this month opens the door for it - and it's logistically possible. Punch it!

There's been no direct news about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order since its announcement at the E3 conference earlier this year. But the way things went down over EA's other Star Wars project - the one code-named "Ragtag" - as well as the evolution of Battlefront may have something to tell us about what to expect from Fallen Order.

Though there wasn't a specific Star Wars comics panel, they were well represented at SDCC in the Disney/Lucasfilm Publishing panel. And there are three series called out in particular that bear on the Resistance-era and on the possibility of new scoundrel connections. Punch it!

"Really worth tracking down - feels like a sort of fluke that couldn’t exist today, a strangely plain & intimate view of the production with lots of very unguarded interviews." - Rian Johnson, tweeting about "Once Upon a Galaxy: A Journal of the Making of The Empire Strikes Back." And it seems relevant again with San Diego Comic-Con starting today... Punch it

Chewbacca's appeared in six Star Wars movies prior to Solo: A Star Wars Story (the OT, Revenge of the Sith, and the two sequel movies), but the seventh time's the charm for him. The father-son Kasdan writing team does more for the character of Chewie in 10 seconds of dialogue than any other movie has done for him. Punch it!

I was just sitting around, happening to think about Solo: A Star Wars Story the other day, as one does. And I got to wondering: Why is it that Chewie decides to trust Han when they're down in that mud pit together, where they first meet? I think I have an answer... Punch it!

Episode IX is still firmly in pre-production mode - no announcement on principal photography just yet, though it's supposed to be starting later this month. Meanwhile, Keri Russell is allegedly in talks to play a role in Episode IX, and based on her physical appearance, folks are jumping to conclusions about whether her character may be related to Rey. But is that a good thing? Punch it!

With Solo: A Star Wars Story slipping out of the Top 10 in box office totals during the seventh weekend of its release, this will be the last weekly Scoundrel Business update, though we'll check in on Solo from time to time during the summer. Meanwhile, I'm also talking about projected home video release dates, and the countdown to Episode IX. Punch it!

In the spirit of something we were talking about earlier in the week, about sharing the joy of Star Wars with new generations, I humbly present "Are You Scared, Darth Vader?" (Thanks to Disney-Lucasfilm Press for sending me a copy to check out!) In the best tradition of children's books - stunning and unusual artwork, a surprise twist or three, and a breaking of the metaphorical fourth wall - this has laughs for the little ones and is witty and savvy enough to reward the adult reader with a few laughs, too. Punch it!

On July 7th, 2014, Star Wars 7x7 went live on iTunes with four episodes, and a promise to deliver a daily dose of Star Wars joy. Four years and more than 1,500 numbered and bonus episodes later, it's time to pause for a moment and share a heaping helping of gratitude for people who've made this milestone possible. Punch it!

Star Wars isn't so resonant because of its pulling from Joseph Campbell's monomyth. It's because it also pulls from political and social history as well - and not just the history of the United States, though that certainly plays a part. And when you take a closer look at the ideas and values Lucas wove into the good-guy side of the space opera, it's kind of surprising to hear people complaining about Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson for following and building upon the same ideas Lucas espoused for decades...

You can talk about individual story choices all you want - and the Force knows I will, too - but when it comes to the bigger picture of Star Wars, I only have one particular disagreement with what George Lucas did with the Star Wars Saga. Being that I'm of a certain age, you might guess that it has something to do with the Special Editions, and you'd be correct. But I think I have a different take on it from what you might hear most often from people who think he shouldn't have tinkered with the Original Trilogy. Punch it!

Many times over the years here at Star Wars 7x7, we've talked about how the scarcity of Star Wars films over the first 30+ years of its existence may have been part of the secret sauce that helped create the level of devotion it has achieved. After the reception of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and reports from anonymous sources about how the standalone movies are being considering in the wake of Solo, what does that mean for the value of scarcity now? Punch it!

Building off of yesterday's episode: If there's no ownership or entitlement or "public trust," as it were, then what is our place as fans in the Star Wars experience? I've got seven pretty straightforward ideas about that... Punch it!

If I've learned anything in the past four years, and especially in the past six months, it was that I was wrong about something fundamental from the very get-go. In Episode #1 of the podcast back in 2014, I asserted that Star Wars belonged to us as fans, and that George Lucas created a new kind of public trust by creating something so culturally resonant as Star Wars. Well, parts of the reasoning were true, but the conclusion was anything but. Punch it!

We're doing Scoundrel Business a day early because we've got important stuff to talk about during this, the Anniversary Week for Star Wars 7x7, and it begins here. We're looking at how Universal, Sony, and Fox have all tried aggressively to figure out how to beat Star Wars at the box office, since at least 2016, and what that means for Episode IX. Punch it!
