It’s time for Episode 16 of Lattes with Leia! With Star Wars Celebration Orlando recently wrapping, we spend some of the episode going over highlights from the convention – including The Last Jedi teaser.

Note: Our most sincere apologies for the audio during our conversation with Amy Ratcliffe. This is through no fault of Ms. Ratcliffe, and is completely due to an error in production; we hope you will bear with us, as Amy has some awesome things to say!
The Road to Celebration concludes as Coffee With Kenobi‘s Dan Z & Cory Clubb talk with Behind-The-Scenes Stage Host Amy Ratcliffe, as they give their Top Five panel recommendations.

Episode 15 of Lattes with Leia has arrived! Our topic this month? The Force Awakens’ Kylo Ren. We discuss his abilities, his emotional responses, and speculate about what his childhood must have been like. Also! We talk about DK Publishing’s new Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia, Empire’s End, and the upcoming Scum and Villainy Cantina pop-up.
Episode 14 of Lattes with Leia is here. We talk about the new Galactic Maps book from Lucasfilm-Disney Press and some Love and Madness jewelry, and then move into our main topic: the Jedi Order. Were they too held back by their beliefs? Was their downfall a terrible thing? Can we live by the rules of the Jedi? And we also briefly discuss what we think the title of Episode VIII, The Last Jedi, means.
We did it! The thirteenth episode of Lattes with Leia marks our year anniversary. After discussing what we’re most excited about related to Star Wars at the moment – the Star Wars Day at Sea Disney Cruise and runDisney’s Star Wars half – we talk about Carrie Fisher. We cover her role as Princess Leia, her work raising awareness for mental issues, her writing, and her legacy.
This one’s for you, Carrie.
It’s time for the twelfth episode of Lattes with Leia. After discussing what we’re most excited about related to Star Wars right now – The Rogue One Visual Guide, a chronological Clone Wars rewatch, and The Princess Diarist – Andrea and I discuss our general thoughts on Rogue One, the characters we most liked in the movie, and how Rogue One affected our views of the Rebel Alliance.
The news about Carrie Fisher’s passing came after we recorded this month’s episode. We are our sorry to lose such an amazing person and heroine, and our hearts go out to her family, friends, and loved ones.
