The next step in the First Order's takeover of the Colossus platform goes into effect in "The Disappeared," and we find out that the FO has also been quietly arresting people and removing them from the Colossus - to where, we don't know... Punch it!

Here we go! Composer Ryan Shore talks about how he came to score Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures and Forces of Destiny, and what goes into the creation of the music for these two web series. Punch it!

If you've watched Galaxy of Adventures or Forces of Destiny, then you're already familiar with Ryan Shore's work. He scored both of these animated series, blending his own original compositions with John Williams' classic themes. And that's in addition to dozens of other projects! Part one of my interview with Ryan is here... Punch it!

It's a reasonably safe bet that Anthony Daniels saw the developing Episode IX title frenzy and decided to have a little fun with it - but not without purpose. Now that things seem to have been resolved (as far as they're going to be for now, at least), here's the scoop on his tweets. Punch it!

Entertainment Tonight caught up with J.J. Abrams, and after politely asking about the U.S.-Ireland Alliance event being hosted at Bad Robot, the conversation was quickly turned to Episode IX. Let's unpack what J.J. had to say... Punch it!

You think you know how talkative Chewbacca was in the Original Trilogy, but really, you have NO idea. No idea at all! And the same goes for Yoda grunting, groaning and giggling, and a few other surprising things being captured in the new Star Wars by the Numbers series. Punch it!

There are 15 installments of Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures to date, which ought to be more than enough to get us started on reviewing this new foray into Star Wars storytelling. And if this is what the future looks like, then we're in good hands so far. Punch it!

The announcement of Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures back in November not only revealed what kinds of moments we'd see depicted, but also hinted at a couple of much larger storytelling implications for the Star Wars galaxy on the cusp of Episode IX. Punch it!

The end is nigh ... for season 1 of Star Wars Resistance. Based on the finale date, we know (at a high level) how the rest of the season is going to unfold - and what still needs to be revealed. Punch it!

We're just an episode or two away in Star Wars Resistance from them crossing the line into the territory of The Force Awakens. In "The Core Problem" (episode 17 of season 1), we get to see a graveyard that may be the result of the early Starkiller weapon's development. Punch it!

It's a wrap! Episode IX has finished filming, and J.J. Abrams marked the occasion with a touching tweet, and a photo that's worth dissecting. The big question: Where in the galaxy are they? Punch it!

The publisher's summary and a first excerpt for Claudia Gray's Master and Apprentice have been released. On the one hand, it's a bummer that we're not going to hear about Obi-Wan and the Duchess Satine of Mandalore in this one! On the other, it's an exciting glimpse at something brand-new - which could also include Dooku during his Jedi Master days. Punch it!

Wild Space. Unknown Regions. What's the difference? It was defined by Pablo Hidalgo a few years ago in a Rebels Recon episode, and recent information (Thrawn: Alliances, Lando's Luck, Galaxy's Edge, and Star Wars Resistance) seem to be complicating the matter. Let's clear it up today. Punch it!

When the Benioff and Weiss Star Wars movies were announced (one year ago on 2/6!), they were labeled as a "series." Now, HBO's network president Casey Bloys is on the record being more specific about the number of Star Wars movies to which they're committed. Punch it!

So there's something I need to clarify amidst all the information and possibility presented around the "awakening," and we'll set the record straight about Rey, Kylo, and Snoke's involvement in it on today's show. Punch it!

The next step in the First Order's master plan comes into focus in "The New Trooper," episode 16 from season 1 of Star Wars Resistance. Plus, their fair share of slapstick, and lots of flying fruit. Punch it!

The "cosmic Force" was stirred by Rey's awakening, as opposed to the "living Force" first introduced to us conceptually by Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace. So, what's the difference between the two? And how does that difference indicate that Rey's awakening may not have been the moment of crisis we talked about yesterday? Punch it!

"There has been an awakening," Snoke said. But the cosmic Force had lain dormant for years, after the destruction of Luke Skywalker's fledgling Jedi temple and following. So what, exactly, caused the awakening? And might the timing be off a bit? Punch it!

Kylo Ren promised his grandfather that he would finish what Vader started. Kylo certainly made big strides in that direction, but what di he really mean by it? And can he actually fulfill that promise? Punch it!

The "Complete Visual Dictionary" leverages a lot of content from previous movie visual dictionaries, but there are distinct differences. Today, new facts (and some old ones worth revisiting) about Kylo Ren and his link to the Knights of Ren. Punch it!

I'm listening to the Disney investor call so you don't have to! And there's nothing earth-shattering being revealed, but there are some interesting notes from Disney CEO Bob Iger about Disney+, Galaxy's Edge, and Star Wars video games. Punch it!

We didn't get any Star Wars reveals during the Big Game. How much longer must we wait? In my final title speculation episode, I'll explain why it has to be before Celebration Chicago, and even before March 7th. Why that date? Listen to find out... Punch it!

Kaz risks everything to help Synara escape from the First Order, and the deal gets worse all the time for Captain Doza and the Colossus residents in "The First Order Occupation," episode 15 from season 1 of Star Wars Resistance. Punch it!

We've all been told that Episode IX is the "final installment in the Skywalker saga." But what does that actually mean for the predicament of our (non-Skywalker) heroes after Episode IX? Not nearly as much as we might have guessed... Punch it!

They're not calling it "Journey to Galaxy's Edge," but they might as well, considering that the new initiative includes three books, two comic series, and a cookbook (you read that right)... Punch it!

What amounts to a "Journey to Galaxy's Edge" publishing initiative has been announced, and one of the pieces, the novel "Black Spire" by Delilah S. Dawson, could well be a "Journey to Episode IX" book as well... Punch it!
