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!

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!

Seems far-fetched, doesn't it? Well, maybe that's not the case, but as he heads into post-production on Knives Out - which now has a release date, and by extension, a date by which he can get started on his new Star Wars trilogy - he's telegraphing a strong move into movies with comic elements.

Due to a quirk on the Disney/ABC Press Website, it's not immediately clear that Star Wars Resistance will debut a new episode on Super Bowl Sunday. But they will, entitled "The First Order Occupation." (Another tiding that doesn't bode well for an Episode IX tease on Sunday.) And that, along with the other three newly announced episodes, tell us a lot about the run they're making to the season finale. Punch it!

But there are crucial differences between those two movies and Episode IX when it comes to marketing possibilities. Punch it!

On the heels of the announcement that a fourth installment of the rebooted Star Trek franchise has been canceled, and a reminder that the second one (Into Darkness) was considered "divisive among fans," we stop to ponder the possibility - could Episode IX perform like Star Trek Beyond did at the box office - which is to say, not as well as its predecessors?

In terms of sheer production, 2018 was a down year compared to 2017 when it comes to Star Wars novels and comics. There's a notable reason for that (maybe not a cause, but certainly a correlation), and like the video game space, there's also a notable cancellation in the comics world to recall as well. Punch it!

Two new Battlefront II seasons, a bunch of new updates to the Jedi Challenges VR game, and the "Reflections" short produced in conjunction with ILMxLAB were the big "headline news" updates in video games and experimental media for Star Wars in 2018.

And it goes on as they discuss Chewie, Leia, Rey, and the attack on Starkiller Base, but you won't believe who's talking. Plus, how C-3PO will save the Resistance and enable the Jedi to rise again.

"Torture buddies"! That's how Poe describes a newly-discovered bond he shares with Rey. But this episode is about more than that - specifically, it's about the real story behind the Resistance's recon mission to Starkiller Base, and how they were tracked back to D'Qar. Punch it!

It's a little unusual for me to do this, but I've been thinking a lot about Rey, the sacred Jedi texts, how she's going to get another kyber crystal, how the First Order may be locking all of them down, whether she's going to train a new generation of Jedi, and how she's going to be able to get all of her students kyber crystals, too. And, I think one of the filming location may offer us an answer. Punch it!

What David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, and Rian Johnson are NOT working on right now is Star Wars. What they ARE working on, and the completion timelines for those projects, suggest that the next Star Wars movie after Episode IX is further out than we thought - and that Lucasfilm's content strategy is pivoting.

Not only do we know who the executive producer/showrunner is for the Cassian Andor streaming series (Stephen Schiff, The Americans), we also know who pitched it and wrote the pilot and "bible" for it (Jared Bush, Zootopia, Moana). And both of them have major espionage credentials... Punch it!

The big announcement for the end of November isn't going to be about Episode IX, it seems.

Star Wars fandom is arguably one of the most charitable fandoms out there. It starts at the top, with George Lucas' well-documented philanthropy, and what he's inspired in fans at the grass roots level. Today, a brief overview of those efforts, as well as a hint at what's in store for Force for Change in 2019. Punch it!

Shocking as it may seem, the fallout from the Star Wars Holiday Special was actually rather minimal. Most of the actors and creative team continued to have successful careers! There was one clear winner when it came to the production, and only perhaps three people/businesses that didn't come out on the plus side of the equation. Punch it!

Two musical numbers round out the final half hour of the Star Wars Holiday Special ... sung by Bea Arthur and Carrie Fisher. Plus, the Wookiees wear red robes during the final Life Day celebration because the show's budget wasn't big enough to put all those actors in full Wookiee costumes. Punch it!

It's easy to say that the Boba Fett cartoon was the best part of the Star Wars Holiday Special, considering the competition it had. But it actually had some cool ideas. And the cartoon appeared to be Rebel propaganda, too! And then, Bea Arthur shows up... Punch it!
