In an interview after the Episode IX panel at Star Wars Celebration, director J.J. Abrams was asked about Rey's parents, and he actually had a bit of a teaser to share about that topic. I'm breaking his response into three parts and analyzing each for what it means to The Rise of Skywalker - and The Last Jedi. Punch it!

Star Wars planets are often treated as having only one climate, and we know where the only two Death Stars blew up. So we can speculate about which Death Star we're seeing a fragment of in The Rise of Skywalker trailer, and what planet it might be on. I've got two strong prequel-era candidates, which are also remarkably near to two other significant planets... Punch it!

Continuing a tradition here on the show, I'm analyzing the teaser trailer for The Rise of Skywalker to determine how many planets we're seeing in the newly-released footage. One of them takes up the lion's share of the footage, and I'm making my strongest case yet for what that planet is. Plus, another milestone I've hit that goes beyond 1,750 episodes, and a fun Palpatine fact I didn't share with you on yesterday's show. Punch it!

Palpatine died on the second Death Star. And if you had any doubts about that, Ian McDiarmid put them to rest. He told The Phantom Menace 20th Anniversary panel audience that he'd had multiple conversations with George Lucas about it over the years, and Lucas always insisted that Palpatine was dead as a doornail. So how are we to explain the laughter of that madman as heard in the teaser for The Rise of Skywalker?

Well, between the movies, books, TV shows, and comics, there are at least seven different explanations for how this is possible, and I'm going to run them all down for you today. Punch it!

It was an amazing five days of Star Wars Celebration, and though the party has left town (as you'll see in the video version of the show, and in photos on our social channels), the fun is just beginning. On today's show, I'm recapping the coverage and the biggest reveals, and announcing the names of all 25 - yes, 25! - interviewees you'll be hearing from on the show in the coming weeks. Punch it!

As opposed to previous days at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, Day 4 only contained two news-breaking story events: panels for The Mandalorian and for Clone Wars Season 7. And the footage they provided in both was stunning, even though they decided not to show The Mandalorian footage to anyone but the attendees at the panel. Here's the top stories update for both events... Punch it!

Dave Filoni is a man who does not disappoint, and is also a man who loves to make Ashley Eckstein cry. At the Clone Wars Season 7 (aka #CloneWarsSaved) panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, he shared clips each of the three story arcs that will comprise the final season of The Clone Wars, and unveiled a full trailer as well. Punch it!

The rules said no video recording or flash photography, but if I can't do that, then at least I can tell you what was happening during the two times they blacked out the livestream of The Mandalorian panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. This was recorded in the halls of Wintrust Arena while it was fresh in my head, and sheltered from the freak snowstorm outside. Punch it!

The reveals from the Star Wars Galaxy's Edge panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago were all kind of at the little teaser level. As in, snippets of music, mentions of voice actors, hints at ride footage previews, and one "refreshing" revelation. Punch it!

It was Galaxy's Edge's turn in the Star Wars Celebration Stage Panel Lottery spotlight, but I think its thunder was stolen by the gangbusters trailer and additional reveals for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. And surprisingly, there were panels on books, comics, and animation where the list of new news could all be summed up neatly in one episode. Punch it!

The autograph and photo op setup at Star Wars Celebration Chicago is shaping up to be the largest one ever at Celebration! But how did autographing as a business get started, and how did it become what it is today? In the first of a two-part interview, Star Wars Autograph News owner and founder Frank Rich joins me to set the scene. We'll talk about his history as a Star Wars fan and how it led him to collecting signatures and from there to creating Star Wars Autograph News. We'll also talk about how the autographing industry has changed over the last decade, and I'll give a preview of what's on tap for tomorrow's show... Punch it!

Similar to how three novels targeted to younger readers for "The Journey to The Force Awakens" included sequel-era prologues and epilogues, the "Flight of the Falcon" series has prologues and epilogues that are very "Journey to Episode IX" in their nature, but this time, there's a central plot and character - Bazine Netal's hunt for the Millennium Falcon.

In movies, they'd call it a post-credits scene. It's an apt comparison for the epilogue of E.K. Johnston's "Queen's Shadow," since the epilogue doesn't wrap up the events of the novel - it takes place several years afterward. And it hints at some juicy new storytelling opportunities. Punch it!

Turns out the makers of Star Wars Resistance have even crazier things planned for the season finale than we know, because they sank the Colossus two episodes before the finale in "Descent," episode 19 of season 1. As Neeku says, "Or it's so crazy, it's crazy." Punch it!
