Why is Rose not on the Resistance Bomber with her sister Paige for the battle over D'Qar in The Last Jedi? The novel Cobalt Squadron has the answer, which involves a direct request from none other than Vice-Admiral Holdo herself. Also, the shot from Starkiller Base that destroyed the Hosnian system? If you were in hyperspace when it happened, you felt it big time. Punch it!

When the First Order imposes a blockade on the Atterra system in the novel Cobalt Squadron, it has a devastating effect on the worlds of Atterra Alpha and Atterra Bravo. Thsi is a spoiler-filled podcast revealing just how awful the First Order really is - and how their actions in the novel have ramifications for the fate of Finn's parents. Punch it!

Paige and Rose Tico are new additions to the Star Wars universe, but we learn precious little about them in the movie. Paige, if I recall correctly, doesn't even have a line of dialogue! Rose tells us they escaped from the First Order devastating their home world, and she's never a fathier in real life. But in Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Cobalt Squadron, we learn where they're from, how they escaped, and much more. Punch it!

In the days leading up to The Last Jedi, Cobalt and Crimson Squadrons - those would be the squadrons of Resistance bombers - we're on a secret mission in First Order territory, risking the provocation of open warfare first to spy on the First Order's activities in the Atterra system, and then to supply Atterrans attempting to fight back against the First Order occupation and blockade. That's the gist of Cobalt Squadron, the new junior novel by Elizabeth Wren that tells us what Rose and Paige Tico were up to prior to their onscreen appearances. Punch it!

After reading the lovable "Chewie and the Porgs" children's book, I've arrived at a rather inescapable conclusion: That our sweet Chewbacca is, in fact, a diabolical scoundrel. Because the book has to live in the same universe as the movie and The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary, the kindness with which Chewie treats the Porgs is akin to how people talk about keeping the stress levels of chickens as low as possible, because they allegedly taste better that way. Punch it!

The history of the Rebel outpost on Crait, and more about the First Order's heavy artillery - that's what's on tap for today's podcast. Also, we're following up on Episode 1,299 about Finn's defection with a note about why, specifically, Captain Phasma wants Finn dead. And it's not just because he's a First Order deserter. It's a very personal reason. Punch it!

The Last Jedi scored four Oscar nominations yesterday, for Original Score, Visual Effects, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing. I'll be putting this in historical perspective on today's podcast, as well as discussing a couple of Twitter revelations from Rian Johnson about the source of inspiration for Luke's presence on Crait in The Last Jedi, and what may have happened to his robotic hand in the aftermath. Punch it!

First, you need to know how the First Order reacts to disloyalty. (Hint: they're somewhat poor sports about it.) Then, you need to know just how wide a variety of duties and assignments are given to some stormtroopers. At that point, you can get a sense of how huge a deal Finn's desertion and betrayal of the First Order was, why they wanted to keep the lid on it, and how badly Captain Phasma wanted to see Finn dead. Punch it!

We haven't been given the full picture of Luke's post-Return of the Jedi history yet, but we've been given some tantalizing clues thanks to The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary. In fact, we may be able to safely break that thirty-year time period into thirds based on what we now know about his activities. Whether that's an even three groups of ten years is still a mystery, but the book does potentially suggest that Luke and Ben may have parted ways years before Leia was aware of the schism. Punch it!

The Supreme Leader is dead. Long live the Supreme Leader! Just because Snoke is out of the picture, that doesn't mean it's not worth taking a deeper look at him to find out what the deal really is with him. After all, there could be more of him running around the Unknown Regions, right? Well, "running" may not be exactly right. But you get the idea. Also, apparently I'm teal color-blind, and that tree on Temple Island isn't what we thought it was. Punch it!

Before Captain Canady commanded a Dreadnought in the First Order, he served aboard a Star Destroyer in the Galactic Empire with the sweetest name for a Star Destroyer you've ever heard. Plus, more about the war profiteering in the galaxy; how many ships were sent after the fleeing Resistance ships; why Holdo's suicide shot was as super-damaging as it was; and the whole Star Destroyer/Battlecruiser naming thing - all that's on tap in today's deep dive into The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary. Punch it!

How did Han sow the seeds of Snoke's destruction in his final moments on Starkiller Base? Why does Finn's jacket suggest more time passed in between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi than we previously thought? These and more questions are being discussed in today's episode of the podcast, another deep dive into The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary. Punch it!

Did you know? The Resistance scribbled secret messages on some of the bombs they dropped on the Dreadnought in The Last Jedi. I'm translating a couple of those Auerbesh messages - plus, does a location on the galactic map in The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary hint at something about Solo: A Star Wars Story? Punch it!

There are basically four kinds of stories in The Last Jedi Incredible Cross-Sections book: Business stories that give you a glimpse of the work of an industry; thumbnail stories provided in their entirety; hints at brand new events never detailed previously in the canon; and the re-introduction of elements from "Legends" (aka the old Expanded Universe). For the latter, one of the inclusions harkens back to the beloved Han Solo and the Lost Legacy. Punch it!

One of the (many) neat things about the Incredible Cross-Sections books from DK Publishing is the miniature stories you find included side by side with the descriptions of the vehicles being profiled in the book. And in some of those cases for The Last Jedi book, those stories and tidbits of background include information that had previously been the stuff of "Legends" - aka, the Expanded Universe. Punch it!

You know the Resistance bomber sequence in The Last Jedi, of course. Well, it left a lot of moviegoers (or, perhaps, a few very vocal moviegoers) scratching their heads. How did they get the bombs to drop in zero-G space? Why did they stay so close together that they could all be taken down by a chain reaction? And where were they for The Force Awakens, anyway? Well, these questions are all very convincingly answered in DK Publishing's Incredible Cross-Sections book for The Last Jedi. Punch it!

Finn told us that the siege cannon deployed by the First Order on Crait was "Death Star tech." Well, what kind of Death Star tech would power a giant laser cannon? If you guessed kyber crystals, you'd be right as rain. But here's the scary thing - that's not the only weapon in the First Order's arsenal powered by kyber crystals. And for all we know, Supreme Leader Snoke's ship could have had tons of them on board as cargo. Punch it!

Back when Captain Needa said, "No ship that small has a cloaking device!" about the Millennium Falcon, that's about all we knew about stealth tech in the Star Wars galaxy. Thirty years later, it seems the galaxy hasn't advanced very far in that field. On today's podcast, we're talking about what we've learned about stealth tech as a result of the events of The Last Jedi, with help from DK Publishing's new Incredible Cross-Sections book. Punch it!

Thanks very much to Justin Bolger, Social Media Strategist at Lucasfilm, for helping me look at the decisions made - especially by Poe Dameron - in a new and more charitable light. If you remove the value judgments, there are no "good" or "bad" decisions. There's just "human" decisions, as Justin put it. Today, I'm taking a look at how those all-too-human decisions nearly caused the death of the Resistance. Punch it!

J.J. Abrams set out a lot of possible paths for the director who would follow in his storytelling footsteps. And it's fair to say that Rian Johnson seems to have zagged a lot of times where other folks might have expected him to zig. In today's episode, I've collected some of the biggest plotlines and potential plotlines from The Force Awakens that went nowhere (or next to it) in The Last Jedi - including one suggested by the spectacular Carrie Fisher herself. Punch it!

Since J.J. Abrams only did The Force Awakens, and didn't lay out a plan for Episodes VIII and IX ... and since Rian Johnson only did The Last Jedi and didn't lay out a plan for Episode IX ... are we actually getting a Star Wars "trilogy" in the true sense of the word with this Sequel Trilogy? Or are we getting something else entirely - something that might happen to be very close to the heart of the Maker himself, George Lucas? Punch it!

Scott Mendelson, the box office guru for Forbes.com, tells us The Last Jedi did $151 million less this weekend than last weekend. That's the biggest drop from weekend to weekend ever. And yet, it's still projected to make a billion dollars worldwide. So what gives? Why the big drop? Is it the word of mouth from that one corner of fandom? Stronger movies opening against it in the second weekend? The way Christmas falls in the calendar this year? Or is the scarcity issue finally coming into play? Punch it!

Back in May 2017, in the Vanity Fair cover story, Mark Hamill said he told The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson that he "fundamentally disagreed" with every choice Johnson made for his character, Luke Skywalker. He later elaborated on that, to make it clear that there were no hard feelings or anything like that, and that it eventually became a thrilling experience for him. But what, exactly, was he objecting to at first? Punch it!

Shipping the characters of the Sequel Trilogy has been an avid interest of many Star Wars fans. And the events of The Last Jedi only fuel those fires. Without spoiling anything in this description, I'll be talking about five different combinations of characters, and where their romantic prospects stand after the end of The Last Jedi. What's more, there's something that happened in The Last Jedi that happened almost exactly the same way in the novelization for The Force Awakens. Punch it!

Full-spoiler podcast, no-spoiler description! So, the truth has been revealed - or so we think. The person providing the information may not be the most reliable source, but Rey's experience on the island of Ahch-To suggests there could be truth in what that character says. However, other stories in the new canon, including Before the Awakening, cast doubt on what that character claims. Mysterious enough so far? I'll name names on the podcast. Punch it!

On the one hand, The Last Jedi's opening weekend is the second biggest of all time (after a certain other Star Wars movie). On the other hand, it went from second-best finishes on Thursday and Friday to fourth-best finishes on Saturday and Sunday. What gives? Could it be that people don't actually like it, and word of mouth is driving down ticket sales? Is that why it has a 56% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes? Naturally, there's a lot more to the story. Punch it!

So here, to prove that I'm able to critique The Last Jedi, are seven things that bothered me to varying degrees. Punch it!

The battle between the Resistance and the First Order takes on a political dimension, as Leia needs to get creative about fundraising for the Resistance. This is where the Resistance takes the propaganda war against the First Order to a new level. People are tired of hearing her dire warnings. Senators on the take are serving as apologists and placaters, claiming the First Order isn't a danger. It's time to stop talking about the First Order as bad guys - it's time to prove it. Punch it!

Poe Dameron, under orders to find Lor San Tekka before the First Order, has to go talk to Grakkus the Hutt in prison. Because that's where Tekka went. Grakkus has a history of collecting Jedi artifacts, which might have had something to do with it. But he'll only talk about Tekka if Poe and Black Squadron break out of prison. First. Before Agent Terex and the First Order do. Lots of shifting alliances that Poe has to manage, not to mention the potential traitor in their midst. In other words, more of the kind of experience General Leia Organa needs him to get, if he's ever going to step into a bigger leadership role in the Resistance. Punch it!

All we know about when the novel Phasma takes place is that it's between The Force Awakens and the novel Bloodline - a six-year swing. It seems to be closer to Bloodline, but the only real clue of any kind is the fact that the D'Qar Resistance base is up and running. We also know the main story centers around a captured Resistance Spy and the man in the cardinal-red armor who had his thunder stolen from him by Phasma. But how will any of this bear on The Last Jedi? Punch it!

You want to talk ruthless? Let's talk about Captain Phasma. Sure, she didn't show up much in The Force Awakens, and she didn't do much either, but you could tell she was a bad person to be on the bad side of. And the Phasma novel by Delilah Dawson confirms that opinion and THEN some. The way she's operating, no one is safe - not even people at the highest levels of the First Order. Punch it!

Seven members of the cast of The Last Jedi joined Rian Johnson in two separate Facebook Live Q&A sessions where they picked pre-screened questions out of a stormtrooper bucket. The questions were fluffy in some places; in others, they allowed little rays of sunlight in to illuminate some things about The Last Jedi. Here's what Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Laura Dern, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, and Kelly Marie Tran had to say. Punch it!

Rian Johnson answered a bunch of questions from Twitter users this week, and for the Twitter Q&A he didn't do what he did with the Facebook one. Instead of one 20+ minute video, this time he did a handful of videos at 30 seconds or (often) less. I'm breaking down the details of his most interesting answers on today's podcast. Punch it!

Well, thanks to the trailer release last month, and the Entertainment Weekly cover story this month, a new light has been shined on Leia's predicaments in The Last Jedi. With Vice Admiral Holdo taking the reins of Resistance leadership, what will Leia's mission become? The answer, it seems, has been right in front of us all along. Punch it!

One of the stories in "The Legends of Luke Skywalker" takes place largely in the Unknown Regions, around a planet only referred to as The Deep, with a space station orbiting it called The Gem. Based on the details of the story, and on Andy Serkis' comments about Snoke's character in Entertainment Weekly this week, is it possible that the events on The Gem are the inciting incident for Snoke's grudge against the New Republic?

As opposed to yesterday's story, "Fishing in the Deluge" is quite possibly the Legend of Luke Skywalker that has the most truth to it. Why? The things Luke is quoted as saying, and the very familiar setting (despite the name given in the story). Punch it!

It's the second of six stories in The Legends of Luke Skywalker by Ken Liu, and in all honesty, it probably has the least to reveal to us about Luke Skywalker. But it does give us more insight into the Battle of Jakku and its aftermath. Punch it!

Finally! The cover story I've been promising you for months is arriving at newsstands now. It's Entertainment Weekly's final installment on The Last Jedi, a big cover story with lots of new photos and more information about the working relationship between Poe Dameron and Vice Admiral Holdo, to name one thing. But I'm burying the lede, so to speak.

Anthony Breznican, the author of the cover story (and all the stories contained therein, as well as the ones coming out on EW.com that are expansions of the print stories), joined me on the podcast today to talk about the making of the cover story, and to reveal a new feature coming next week. Punch it!

At Star Wars Celebration Europe, Rian Johnson named a few movies that he asked the Lucasfilm Story Group folks to watch, so that they would have a common cinematic language when it then came to discussing and preparing for his creation of The Last Jedi. One of those movies is Twelve O'Clock High, the 1949 movie about daylight precision bombers in World War II. I'm analyzing that movie with a special guest: writer and podcast producer Bobby Roberts. Punch it!

"Kick," "Permission," "Fight," and "Destiny" - those are the titles for four new commercials for The Last Jedi that have found their way online. I'll be discussing all of them today, but fair warning - if you don't want to know who says "May the Force be with you" in The Last Jedi, don't watch the "Kick" commercial, and only listen to this episode of the podcast through the commercial break. Punch it!

A lot of blink-and-you'll-miss-them moments were featured in the latest behind-the-scenes reel for The Last Jedi. This one came from an unusual source: USA Today, previously only known for their exclusive Star Wars book excerpts. But it's a welcome surprise nonetheless, and I'm highlighting the key takeaways here. That includes new insights into which characters appear together and where, and closer looks at a couple of locations. Punch it!

It's funny - Rian Johnson at first said he didn't want us to watch The Last Jedi trailer, and then he was all, "Watch it watch it watch it!" I'm beginning to wonder what kinds of mind games he might be playing with us. And this trailer certainly seems to have its share of mind games - or what Saw Gerrera might refer to as "Lies! Deceptions!" Here are the three biggest ones. Punch it!

The Last Jedi theatrical poster was revealed on Monday, October 9th, earlier in the day before the release of the trailer. So you can excuse it for getting lost in the shuffle. But the poster has some interesting information on it - from the way Luke Skywalker is depicted, to the new injury on Rey's arm, to name a couple things. And what's excluded from the poster is also very telling in a way, too. Punch it!

I was thrilled to be a guest on CTV News in Canada again yesterday, this time to talk about The Last Jedi trailer. it's been a wild 24 hours since the release of the trailer, and already, the speculation is heating up - including speculation that the trailer is filled with, as Saw Gerrera might say, "Lies! Deceptions!" Punch it!

Rian Johnson, Mark Hamill, and Adam Driver all want you to see as little as possible of The Last Jedi before you see it in theaters. In fact, Rian Johnson said, "If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it. But it’s gooooood....." Well, he's right, but here - in the spirit of their best intentions, is an episode giving you the reasons why you might want to skip the trailer, without actually telling you what's in the trailer. Completely spoiler and speculation free. Punch it!

15 character descriptions were revealed via the "Find the Force" app inside the official Star Wars smartphone app during the Force Friday II weekend. In many cases, the information in those descriptions was the same as what was posted to the StarWars.com Databank in August. But in some cases - like with Maz Kanata, Chewie, Leia, and others - we got new information. Punch it!

Surprise! GQ magazine has landed moments with not one, but two iconic Star Wars actors. For the American edition, Harrison Ford is the cover story feature. Among the topics discussed, a question of whether Han Solo is, indeed, dead. For the British folks, Mark Hamill was named "Icon of the Year," and in addition to celebrating him and other honorees, they also recorded a video with some of his career reflections - including musings on Canto Bight and a pointed avoidance of a certain lightsaber question. Punch it!

Not only was the cover of the Canto Bight novella collection revealed on Wednesday (featuring two new Star Wars vehicles), the descriptions of the four novellas were also revealed. Is it more like "Before the Awakening" or "Tales From a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens Volume 1? I'll dig into that, as well as which character from the four novellas we have the best chance of seeing and noticing on the big screen. Also, there's been yet another shift in the production schedule for Episode IX, and I've got the details. Punch it!

The description of the Elite Praetorian Guard in the StarWars.com Databank includes a curious choice of verb tense as it relates to Supreme Leader Snoke. That's the first topic I'm covering on today's podcast, in which I'm rounding out the coverage of the Force Friday II toy reveals, and also talking about (with fair warning to avoid it if necessary) what "DJ" might stand for, according to the Auerbesh plaque on the hat of his Funko Pop vinyl figure.

The action figures for Luke Skywalker are decidedly unaccessorized - he comes with nothing but his clothes and his robot hand. Not even a glove for it! But there's something about his belt that should make you oooh and aaah for a moment. Would Hasbro ever do a mail-in campaign for people to get his lightsaber after the fact? Seems like a lot to do for a tiny play piece, but I wonder... And also today, I'm digging into the updates to the StarWars.com Databank, starting with Luke, Rose, and the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner. Punch it!
