Operation Cinder was part of Emperor Palpatine's infamous "Contingency" - his plan to have the Empire washed away from the face of the galaxy in the event of his own death. It already has ties to the Star Wars comics (Shattered Empire) and novels (the Aftermath trilogy). Now, it's tied into video games with Star Wars Battlefront II, as Admiral Garrick Versio is drawn into the operation. His daughter, Commander Iden Versio, may be as well, but Garrick has other orders for her first. Plus, what Domhnall Gleeson (The Force Awakens' General Armitage Hux) has to say about the script of The Last Jedi and the selection of J.J. Abrams for Episode IX. Punch it!

Inspired by BB-8 on the Run - which, when you consider it, you discover that Tuanal can't have been too far away from Rey's AT-AT home - and by the fact that every important abandoned child in Star Wars has had someone benevolent and nearby to help with their upbringing. So, the question is, who was that for Rey? I put out a poll, and the results may shock you. Plus, an overseas movie chain may have revealed the runtime of The Last Jedi. Punch it!

Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill have been two of the loudest proponents of keeping the runup to The Last Jedi as spoiler-free as possible. So of course they would be the two folks picked to be primarily interviewed for the traditional Empire Magazine (three years in a row is a tradition, right?) cover story on the coming Star Wars movie. But there are a couple of surprises in the article, to be sure - including at least one item which confirms a leak that had been kicking around the internet for a while. Plus, on a side note, I think I've realized who the Knights of Ren really are. Punch it!

A children's picture book? Color me surprised, too. But the artwork is absolutely stunning, and the story's got its fair share of twists and surprises. It's called "BB-8 on the Run," and I'm talking about it on the podcast today. I'll also spend a little time going all Conspiracy Theory on you, and talking about who could have been (benevolently) keeping an eye on Rey all these years... Punch it!

A coming of age story at the nexus of politics, tyranny, and rebellion, Leia: Princess of Alderaan manages to tie the Prequel Trilogy, Original Trilogy, Sequel Trilogy, and even a standalone movie into one utterly believable package, with a dynamic character taking her place in the center of it all. Punch it!

It's just one line in the novel Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray, but it was enough to launch a thousand internet articles. Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, being played by Laura Dern in The Last Jedi, appears as a young woman in the Leia novel and says something that opens the door to wondering if she'll be the first openly LGBTQ character in a Star Wars movie. Punch it!

82 and 243 days, respectively! That how long you have to wait (at the very least) for The Last Jedi and the young Han Solo movie to hit theaters. But in case you're wondering where they're at with the whole moviemaking thing, I've got updates on the very end of The Last Jedi's production, and the new progress on the Han Solo movie thus far. Punch it!

It's true - Saw Gerrera planned an attack with his Partisans that nearly killed Princess Leia at 16 years of age. Oh, not intentionally of course! But still. I'm digging into this in today's podcast, as well as talking about Saw's intended target, and the uncomfortable observations he was making about Leia prior to his assassination. Punch it!

It's a good bet that Leia is going to wind up on or near Crait during the events of The Last Jedi. But it won't be her first time there. In fact, her first time there would have happened 37 years before the events of The Last Jedi, considering what we learn from the new novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan. Punch it!

"Watch Monday Night Football on Monday October 9th- for no reason in particular." That's the tweet that launched a thousand blog posts about the possibility that Mark Hamill was telling the truth - we're going to get the final trailer for The Last Jedi on 10/9. He's since deleted it, saying "I have no idea. Disney will announce when they are ready. #WaitForVIIITrailer." But can that genie go back into the bottle? Punch it!

As I mentioned in yesterday's podcast, the novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan is thick with connections to other media, and meaningful encounters. Today, I'm talking about one of each. Leia conducts her first humanitarian mission, which happens to be to Wobani, the prison planet on which we see the adult Jyn Erso for the first time in Rogue One. We also get to witness the veiled threats in the first meeting of Leia and Grand Moff Tarkin. Punch it!

Admit it - based on the two images you've seen of Laura Dern as Resistance Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, you've constructed an idea about her character in your mind. She's gotta be tough as nails to work in an organization with Leia and get up to that rank, right? Well, when she's introduced in Leia: Princess of Alderaan, she'll absolutely shatter your expectations. Punch it!

In many cases, the information in those descriptions was the same as what was posted to the StarWars.com Databank in August.

John Boyega, a few months ago, said something in an interview that someday will be referred to as him famously saying, "Star Wars will always be the star of Star Wars." And its that insight that ties in so well to the apparent problems behind the scenes with Colin Trevorrow. No, Boyega wasn't speaking about Trevorrow when he said it. It just happens to line up very well with comments from two anonymous industry insiders being quoted about the whole Trevorrow dust-up. 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!

Lucasfilm made the safe choice by re-hiring Force Awakens director/co-writer J.J. Abrams to be the new director/co-writer for Episode IX. As opposed to Larry Kasdan, the newly announced co-writer with Abrams will be Chris Terrio, who won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for Argo, and who also has his name attached to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

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.

You can understand - sort of - why you'd see stories questioning whether Lucasfilm is in trouble. With all the directorial upheavals happening, and with a voracious entertainment news cycle built on clickbait and anxiety, it's almost a given. But there are many, many reasons to relax and repeat after me: "In Kathleen Kennedy I trust." Punch it!

Only two names are being bandied about by "inside sources" to replace Star Wars Episode IX director/co-writer Colin Trevorrow. However, there are a lot of other websites posting claims about who else would/could/should be considered as a replacement director. I'm digging onto all of that here, as well as opining on why it's high time to get a woman on board to direct a Lucasfilm project. Punch it!

With a short and sweet statement on StarWars.com, Lucasfilm again rocked the Star Wars fandom with the announcement that they were parting ways with Colin Trevorrow, the director and co-writer of Star Wars Episode IX. This one came as a surprise - there'd been no inside sources claiming anything was wrong prior to the announcement. (The foofaraw over Trevorrow's flop with "The Book of Henry" was essentially muck-raking - people trying to start trouble where no trouble had been reported.) Today, I'm talking about what the Hollywood trades are saying about the move, and what's going to happen next. Punch it!

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!

In the Sphero app (for controlling the BB-8, R2-D2, and BB-9E droids), there's a whole series of datascreens that reveal information about Supreme Leader Snoke's flagship, "Supremacy." I'm digging into those reveals today, and connecting them to what's depicted on the BB-8 mega-playset that opens up to reveal a First Order facility. (There's a throne room for Supreme Leader Snoke, more locations within the space, and depicted appearances by Rose, Finn, and Rey.) Punch it!

Turns out the similarities in the promotional timeframes from Rogue One weren't as easy to apply as a template to The Last Jedi. With yet another Force Friday promo partner announced yesterday, all the momentum is clearly on driving awareness for the event, and not for the movie directly - which is what a trailer would be for. So, what's different this time around? And what can we expect for the rest of the year? Punch it!

Whereas the original Star Wars had 31 wipe transitions, Empire had 42, and The Force Awakens only had 14, The Last Jedi is bringing up the rear with 12 wipe transitions, according to writer/director Rian Johnson. What does that mean for the structure of the movie? What could that tell us about the opening sequences? And does it mean that we won't see Luke and Rey at the very beginning of The Last Jedi? I've got the answers to those questions right here. Punch it!

Some Star Wars new sources, I trust whatever they're reporting about. Other sources, I only trust for certain things. I was reminded starkly of this by the reporting on the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie rumors. Some o those semi-trusted sources used the words "official," "confirmed," or other forms of those words when they shouldn't have - since neither Lucasfilm nor Disney have even *responded* to the reports.

it's early, EARLY days yet, but unnamed sources (perhaps inside Lucasfilm, perhaps not) are saying that director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader) is in an early, EARLY stage of talks with Lucasfilm about directing an Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone Star Wars Story. I'm breaking down the rumors that began with The Hollywood Reporter yesterday (8/17). Punch it!

Earlier this year, I theorized that one of the biggest challenges Luke would have in The Last Jedi is coming to terms with the guilt of what happened with Ben Solo and the destruction of the fledgling Jedi Academy. In the fall 2017 Movie Preview cover story on The Last Jedi in Entertainment Weekly, Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill give interviews which suggest I was pretty on the money with this one. Punch it!

Rian Johnson notes that, structurally, J.J. Abrams essentially handed Johnson a situation that already had a number of structural parallels to The Empire Strikes Back. So Johnson set about making it different. Here's a look at some of the similarities we've seen so far, along with some of the more noticeable differences. Punch it!

On today's podcast, I'm reviewing the reveals; piecing together a theory based on those reveals and what we learned from the D23 Expo; and considering the possibility that he's a character we've met previously in the new Star Wars canon - specifically, in the Aftermath novels.

It may seem like Lucasfilm has been having a challenge with directors recently - needing Tony Gilroy to come in and tinker with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One, needing Ron Howard to take over the Han Solo movie - but there may be a more fundamental issue plaguing Lucasfilm and the smooth production of its movies, and the cause goes all the way back to the days when George Lucas was running the company.

Since being acquired by Disney in 2009, Marvel Studios - the movie production arm of Marvel - has produced more than a dozen films, none of them lower than 66% on Rotten Tomatoes (to give you a thumbnail indication of their quality).

Whereas both Battlefront: Twilight Company and Battlefront II: Inferno Squad have compelling characters, the fact that the upcoming Battlefront II video game has a campaign mode which involves the characters from the novel makes that novel all the more satisfying.

Pablo Hidalgo was interviewed by Dan Brooks for StarWars.com for more details about the "porgs," lovely puffin-like creatures inhabiting the island with the first Jedi Temple!

As with last year's Rogue One reveal of Edrio Two Tubes, this time they've revealed a new character - a pilot who previously appeared in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment in The Force Awakens.

I'm interrupting the planned schedule of the podcast to talk about Forces of Destiny, the series of female-centric webisodes targeted to younger viewers and voiced by many of the original actresses. It seems there's been a bit of a backlash against them in some circles, and I thought it was worth talking about. And the conversation went in a slightly different direction than I expected it to, in a good way. Punch it!

One of the bleakest entries into the new Star Wars canon, Rebel Rising by Beth Revis makes you powerfully feel Jyn Erso's plight - and for that, it comes highly recommended.
