Now that we've spent all this time looking at the trees, what about the forest? So to speak, that is. We've dug into the depths of the Solo: A Star Wars Story novelization by Mur Lafferty, and now it's time to reflect on what we've learned and give a final review of the novel and its strong points. Punch it!

After all the double-crosses are said and done, who did what they were expected to do, and why? Qi-ra's motivations, in particular, get much clearer in our look at the stories behind the story of Solo: A Star Wars Story Expanded Edition, aka the novelization of the movie. Punch it!

In full disclosure, our deep dive into the Solo: A Star Wars Story novelization is mostly about L3-37, Lando, and his decision to leave Han, Chewie, Beckett, and Qi-ra behind on Savareen. But the thing you'll most want to hear, I'm sure, is what the truth length of the Kessel Run was. Punch it!

How can our heroes "hear" the booming of carbonbergs smashing into each other in space? What two moments during the Kessel Run are different in the movie than they are in the Solo: A Star Wars Story novelization - and was it good that they happened one way or the other? That and more on our deep dive into the Expanded Edition today. Punch it!

Two sly references to A New Hope, one to the original Lando novels, droids getting religion, and much more on tap as we discuss the secrets of the Kessel Slave Revolt, beyond what we got to see in Solo: A Star Wars Story - including a small difference in the way things happened when Qi'ra killed that Pyke dude.

We learned a little about what happened to Qi'ra after she and Han were split up on Corellia in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Now, thanks to the "Expanded Edition" novelization, we learn just how deadly and difficult those three years were. Punch it!

Most Star Wars fans won't get to go to the red-carpet world premiere of a Star Wars movie, or work directly with ILM, Skywalker Sound, or the Lucasfilm Story Group in our lives. But the next best thing is talking to a friend who did, and who'll tell you all about it. That's Jeremy Meadows, Senior Manager of Marketing Strategy and Integration at Nissan North America, and he's giving you the scoop in this bonus episode of the show. Punch it!

When Han Met Dryden... doesn't exactly sound like a romantic comedy, does it? Well, Dryden Vos may have admired Han's audacity, but there was no love lost during that meeting in his yacht's study. Today, as we dig deeper into the Solo novelization, we learn more about the dangerous subtext of that meeting. Punch it!

In Solo: A Star Wars Story, Tobias Beckett considers taking Han and Chewie off Mimban with them because his crew is "short-handed." But how did they get short-handed in the first place? The movie doesn't explain, but the "Expanded Edition" novelization has the answer - and also reveals whether Beckett saw Han or Chewie as bringing the element he needed to add back into the crew. Punch it!

Do people talk in a more hostile way to women than men on Twitter, when they're talking about Star Wars? A new analysis from Bethany Lacina, a political science professor, at the University of Rochester, certainly makes that case. I'm talking to Bethany today about her work, her own appreciation for Star Wars, and what her findings mean for the "average" fan. Punch it!

Our last summary of the major takeaways from Star Wars: Last Shot concludes with the high points from the "Now" timeframe of the novel, more than two years after the events of the Aftermath Trilogy. This includes Ben Solo nearly getting killed by a culinary droid (really), and Han and Lando making some very adult strides in their most intimate relationships. Punch it!

Before we get to Han Solo's involvement in this whole droid apocalypse scenario, we have to examine an interlude in Star Wars: Last Shot that also, as it happens, helps to bring into stark relief a potential continuity issue with the timeframes of the stories within Last Shot. Or, is it that we're in an "unreliable narrator" situation? Punch it!

How did Lando and Han get into so much trouble in Daniel José Older's "Last Shot"? Well, it all started about twenty years ago - 13BBY, more precisely - when a promising young Pau'an medical student's bad day sowed the seeds of an apocalyptic vision. Punch it!

In its 15th weekend of release, Solo: A Star Wars Story is still in 90 movie theaters in the US, but for all intents and purposes it's reached the end of its theatrical run. And considering that Solo's home release is coming in a few short days, this will be the last "Scoundrel Business" report on the box office totals, and our projections for where it will land on the charts for 2018.

Here we are in the month of September, and this will be the first time in four years that we don't have a Force Friday event to look forward to. Yes, they called it "Rogue Friday" in 2016, but it was the same thing, of course. And that got me thinking about the fact that we'll never have a Force Friday event at Toys 'R' Us ever again...

When the canon was rebooted in 2014, the only people who knew that Anakin Skywalker was Darth Vader were Obi-Wan and Yoda, as far as we knew. (And Palpatine, of course, but we're not counting him because Sith happens.) There may have been others in the old Expanded Universe (now "Legends"), but not anymore. Over the last few years, though, the number of people in on the secret is growing again. Punch it!

A novel that's as much (if not more so) about Darth Vader than the book's namesake, and is the sum of two novellas that could have been fleshed out to standalone books in their own rights, Thrawn: Alliances has a lot to recommend it, and leaves this reader wanting more - but not necessarily in a bad way. It's also continuing a streak of novels in the new Star Wars canon for adults that don't tell one single story... Punch it!

Of the top three significant episodes of Season 2 of Forces of Destiny, in terms of canon significance, today we have the third of the three with "Perilous Pursuit," which gives us a fully-realized deleted scene from The Force Awakens. "Traps and Tribulations," meanwhile, features a host of pleasures and the biggest understatement of anything uttered in Season 2. Punch it!

Of the three meatiest episodes in the second season of Forces of Destiny, "Bounty Hunted" gets my first-place vote, and "Art History" gets my 2nd-place vote. Plus, more reasons why Chewie wants to cook porgs. Punch it!

In today's look at the Forces of Destiny season 2 episodes, we're closing out the first half with "The Path Ahead," in which we find out that the best thing for Luke's Jedi training is to cover his eyes; and "Porg Problems," because what you really wanted to see in The Last Jedi was a porg turning on a lightsaber.

In the first Last-Jedi-time-period episode of Forces of Destiny, Rose, Finn, and BB-8 get caught in a scene reminiscent of Finding Nemo, and Jyn Erso gets stuck dealing with another street urchin, this time one who's out to steal from her. It's "Shuttle Shock" and "Jyn's Trade," episodes 3 and 4 from Season 2 of Forces of Destiny. Punch it!

This rumor's been kicking around ever since Billy Dee Williams had to cancel a convention appearance due to an unknown movie conflict. Well, now it's kicked up to another level, as The Hollywood Reporter is quoting sources that say Williams will, in fact, be reprising the role of Lando Calrissian in Episode IX. Punch it!

Episode IX is still firmly in pre-production mode - no announcement on principal photography just yet, though it's supposed to be starting later this month. Meanwhile, Keri Russell is allegedly in talks to play a role in Episode IX, and based on her physical appearance, folks are jumping to conclusions about whether her character may be related to Rey. But is that a good thing? Punch it!

In the spirit of something we were talking about earlier in the week, about sharing the joy of Star Wars with new generations, I humbly present "Are You Scared, Darth Vader?" (Thanks to Disney-Lucasfilm Press for sending me a copy to check out!) In the best tradition of children's books - stunning and unusual artwork, a surprise twist or three, and a breaking of the metaphorical fourth wall - this has laughs for the little ones and is witty and savvy enough to reward the adult reader with a few laughs, too.

Star Wars isn't so resonant because of its pulling from Joseph Campbell's monomyth. It's because it also pulls from political and social history as well - and not just the history of the United States, though that certainly plays a part. And when you take a closer look at the ideas and values Lucas wove into the good-guy side of the space opera, it's kind of surprising to hear people complaining about Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson for following and building upon the same ideas Lucas espoused for decades...

You can talk about individual story choices all you want - and the Force knows I will, too - but when it comes to the bigger picture of Star Wars, I only have one particular disagreement with what George Lucas did with the Star Wars Saga. Being that I'm of a certain age, you might guess that it has something to do with the Special Editions, and you'd be correct. But I think I have a different take on it from what you might hear most often from people who think he shouldn't have tinkered with the Original Trilogy. Punch it!

Many times over the years here at Star Wars 7x7, we've talked about how the scarcity of Star Wars films over the first 30+ years of its existence may have been part of the secret sauce that helped create the level of devotion it has achieved. After the reception of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and reports from anonymous sources about how the standalone movies are being considering in the wake of Solo, what does that mean for the value of scarcity now? Punch it!

If I've learned anything in the past four years, and especially in the past six months, it was that I was wrong about something fundamental from the very get-go. In Episode #1 of the podcast back in 2014, I asserted that Star Wars belonged to us as fans, and that George Lucas created a new kind of public trust by creating something so culturally resonant as Star Wars. Well, parts of the reasoning were true, but the conclusion was anything but. Punch it!

That's a guesstimate - no debut date has been announced, but by looking at the season premiere dates for the four seasons of Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD, three months is a reasonable estimate. Voice actor Jim Rash revealed a bit about his and Bobby Moynihan's characters, and Star Wars Insider magazine just revealed who's doing the voice of lead character Kazuda Xiono. Plus, whose names are significantly missing from the announced cast so far? Punch it!

Sure, it might seem strange to suggest it, in light of the reviews that weren't as good as the three previous Disney/Star Wars movies, and the box office performance too. But that's actually one of the reasons why doing a sequel to Solo: A Star Wars Story would be an idea worthy of the man himself, ol' George Lucas. I'll explain, and add six more reasons on top of it in today's episode.

Well, it took a bit longer than it did for the previous three Star Wars movies released under the Disney banner, but Solo: A Star Wars Story crossed the $200 million mark domestically and the $350 million mark worldwide during its fifth weekend of release. And with the pending purchase of Fox and its movies by Disney, will Disney in general and Star Wars in specific end up suffering because - in a sense - the studio (Disney) winds up competing with itself as often as it competes against other studios and their releases?
