and stick around, more Star Wars Show coming up in a Star Wars second. Star Wars! Excuse me. Are they hiring here? Hey, is there a movie in there today? Walk please! Can I get my parking validated? Allow me.
(laughing) Hey, I’m Jeremy Saulnier Hi I’m Anton Yelchin. We’re here promoting Green Room at ILM. You’re watching The Star Wars Show. Is that what we’re doing?
That’s what we’re doing. Think that will hurt my chances of getting
like- To direct Star Wars?
-asked to do some kind of franchise work? I’m looking forward to just being in one
of the Star Wars movies. There’s a lot from what I can tell. Dude, that’s a conflict, you’re Star Trek. I can be in both! JJ can make both. I can
be in both, right? “Take care to bury all that you can. Take
care to leave a trace of a man.” Welcome back to The Star Wars Show I am here
with Chvrches who took some time off from their busy schedule to visit us here and talk
about some Star Wars. How’s it going guys? Really good. Good. We’re very excited because we get
to be in this building. It’s like we’re kind of in the Death Star. Little bit, yeah. So, you just came off of
a really exciting weekend at Coachella, how was that? We did, that was absolutely mad. Dusty. Dusty! (Laughs) It was very dusty. A friend of ours made the point that, uh,
Palm Desert kind of looks like a really well developed Tatooine. Yeah. With like fancy cars and kind of- Golf courses. (Laughs) Golf courses! If the moisture farming
business really takes off you could turn it into Palm Springs. Yeah. They’re like, Tatooine is so commercial
these days, man. Yeah! (Laughing) they sold out! It’s not what it used to be. What is this? The golf course, they’ve got
a music festival here now!! Yeah. It’s not the same.
So I know that you guys make a lot of Star Wars banter on stage- I’ve been spotting more and more Star Wars
t-shirts at our shows, I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s because we talk about
Star Wars a lot then. But it could be because of your Jawa impression,
which is really really good. (Jawa Impression)
(Laughing) See that’s good! You had the Halloween costume once.
I did! Not a sexy Jawa!
It was not a Sexy Jawa. Well, ‘cause this is the thing that upset
me when I was like, looking for female Star Wars character costumes, it was always like
sexy this, and sexy that and I was like I don’t want to be a sexy Ewok, I just want
to be AN EWOK. Sexy Jabba.
So I made a Jawa costume, which was kind of like a brown monk’s cloak, um, like a cowboy
gun belt, and it was like a Super Soaker gun but I spray painted it black. Nice! Uh, and it was like a black, uh well, hockey
mask that I spray painted black, and kind of stuck light up bike lights on it. Smart! And I just put like face paint here so I could
technically see out of the eyeholes. And the other eyes were above my head. That’s good! It was quite impressive. Let’s talk The Force Awakens, like what
were your impressions of it when you saw it? I thought it was incredible. And all the parallels
were cool, but I hope that Rey isn’t related to either a Kenobi or a Skywalker. But it won’t be narratively satisfying if
you just say it was some random, random people or parents.
How can you say that?! You know… This is what a lot of the afternoons in venues
look like. It’s like this. If she was a Skywalker, yes. But I feel like
that would tie the whole series together if she was like…
I’m with you, I hope she’s, I hope she’s a nobody. I don’t know obviously, but that’s
like, that’s what I’m hoping for. Definitely not a two dimensional character. And she’s strong enough to carry Mark Hamill.
Her Instagram is really amazing because she, I think she posts loads of stuff that like
you know like, young people who are following her will find really interesting and useful. She’s a badass! Like you’ve watched her
training videos- Yeah.
It’s very impressive. -Oh man, I need to, I need to do that. Text back! Text back, Daisy, text back!
(Laughing) You texting Daisy?
No, I’ve never done that. You guys at home, check out Chvrches. Their
new album, Every Open Eye is available on shelves right now. If you listen to it backwards it tells you
who Rey’s parents are. (Gasp)
It doesn’t. (Laughing)
Spoilers! Hey guys, Anthony Carboni here, in Japan,
in Tokyo! In a store right now, called Star Case which is just completely devoted to Star
Wars collectibles and memorabilia. And I have found some of the craziest Star Wars stuff
I have ever seen in my life. These are Egg Force figures. They transform
into eggs…because Star Wars. Throwing out everything in my kitchen. I have
new things now. They love pencil cases here! They can’t
get enough pencil cases! Nice chopsticks. What do you want, Luke Skywalker?
Oh, I’m sorry, did you mean Jedi Luke? I literally had to buy a new suitcase to bring
all of the stuff that I found home. But on the bright side I did pick up some stuff for
you guys back in the studio, so enjoy the care package! Your hair was different in that interview. It was the special edition. Oh that explains it. THE MOUSE DROID BEEPING. Oooooh look! Presents from Japan! Oh speaking of, does the mouse droid have
a name yet? It does! After tons of humorous suggestions
like, Mon Mousema, Mouse Eisley, Mouse Windu, Mouse Kanata, and seemingly hundreds of people
suggesting Mickey Mmmm. Yeah. Little on the nose. We all agreed on the cute, yet Star Wars-ey
name, CH-33Z, or Cheese, suggested by the appropriately named @storydroid on Twitter. Which brings us to an awesome little reminder,
next week is the 39th Anniversary of the release of Star Wars! Woo hoo! So we want to see your Star Wars birthday
cakes! We’re looking for the incredible to the hilariously terrible Send them to @starwars on Twitter using the
hashtag #StarWarsShowCake, and we’ll reveal our favorites next week. And now if you’ll excuse us, we’ve got
to go play with some toys. It’s very serious business. We’ll see
you next week! Oooh! Rey! “I’m gonna kick your butt!”

About the author


  1. Love that, I am looking forward to more star wars stuff!!!! Also I didn't knew that Daisy Ridley does exercise that much, where can I find videos of her?

  2. What if you made this a consistent 10 minute show. I think that number wouldnt scare too many people away

  3. sweet i'm gonna have to buy the new star wars vinyl surprise this was the first i'd heard of it. cool! thanks!

  4. Great Ciena Ree image. Kathleen Kennedy is obsessed with gender politics and diversity for diversity's sake, but that works in my favor. With a few more entries, I'm looking forward to illustrating a new "Girls of Star Wars Swimsuit Calendar." We finally almost have enough female characters for all 12 months! 😀

  5. It took me way too long to realize the opening was a crazy version of Rey's theme, star wars relates music has been using the exact same songs for so long now that is kinda disorienting when new ones show up

  6. Special Edition Andi Gutierrez, please be my STAR WARS girlfriend. My wife won't mind…she's more into "Call The Midwife". Plus she falls asleep during the Battle of Hoth scenes in Empire. Call me 😉

  7. Short, sweet, to the point, fun with cool guests. All that's needed now is comedic skits with a star wars character at the end like you do for C1-10P with Rebels Recon. I guess that's what the new mouse droid is for, but FN 2199 would be even better.

  8. PLEASE! IS THERE SOME WAY FANS CAN GET ON THE SHOW? Like will they feature people who run fan accounts on social media? I REALLY want them to mention some popular ships or pairings. I think the fandom would explode if that happened, and people would be SO happy!

    Also, I love how I recognized some of the toys the droid brought over.

  9. Will ahsoka Tano going to use old lightsabers on malacor on ground and will sith war droids in Star Wars legends going to be imperial war droids in Star Wars canon and will there be cave stormtrooper be in Star Wars canon of Star Wars rebels !?

  10. Why didn't they say "Star Wars Uprising" by Kabam when talking about video games ? That game is fantastic and the story and character are part of the canon.

  11. This show is lame. It's just Disney reaching for that 20 something hipster money. They need their Hilter youth to grow stronger!!

  12. When will Star Wars rebels season 3 comes out I really wish you add tie defenders,riot trooper,heavy trooper,hazard trooper,tie avenger and x-wing in rebels tv show I like to see !?

  13. i only saw Force Awakens once im so mad and crushed what Kylo Ren did such a disgrace . I dont think i can ever watch Force Awakens again its too upsetting it was good but not great im more excited to see Rogue One

  14. The Star Wars Show is awesome! I can't wait for the next episodes!

    I can't be in London to be part of the celebration, but I can't wait for other big announces at E3! We need more Star Wars games! And because I love Assassin's Creed, I'm verry happy, that at least one Action-Adventure is developed by Respawn!

  15. Am I the only one who doesn't understand all of this gender and racial mixing when it comes to the Empire/First Order? The original trilogy may have had only white guys as Imperial officers because that is who is generally cast as main leads at the time, but for them to start throwing in a bunch of black people and black women seems fairly ridiculous to the point of what the Empire is modeled after, and that is the Nazi regime. Almost everything about the Empire and or First Order is supposed to be in harmony with the Nazis to show their cruelty and removal from social norms. There is nothing wrong with black people or women roles in movies, but stop putting them in the Empire/First Order. They should look like the bad guys who are not adjusted to common practice of fair treatment and making them look like they are racially equal just makes them seem not so bad after all… "why can't a GURRRRLLL be an officer in the empire?!?!?!?!" that's because if they were really like the Nazis, they'd throw you right in a camp for not being part of their "elite" status… Boohoo

  16. did that say…. Lauren Mayberry !!!! Lauren is my middle name! and Mayberry is my last name ! well my first name is Claire…. Lauren's named after my aunt who's not a Mayberry…. I probably shouldn't be saying all this……OK bye YouTube!!!!!!!

  18. I'm glad the Chvrches guys are at least partially of the opinion that Rey shouldn't be a Kenobi or a Skywalker. I know she's probably Kylo's long lost little sister or something, it's just the neatest option, but I'd like it if she WAS just someone from a different, hithertoo unknown Force Sensitive line and her secret isn't her parentage, it's something else.
