    Well, Season 2 starts October 6th, so you got a month and a few days.

    Does it originally air on the regular Disney Channel or Disney XD? I only get the regular one, so I've been watching it on the Disney Now website.
    Have we gotten any Resistance books or comics yet? I haven't noticed any, but that doesn't mean I didn't miss them.

    I’m in Canada, so I’m not sure.

    Disney Channel. Though the first season is now out on DVD, if that helps.
    No.

    It's also on the Disney XD app the same day as airing IIRC.

    You can also buy episodes or the season on Amazon. They offered the first season for $3 last fall. I’m not sure what the second season will go for.

    The full season is still up on DisneyNow, so I'll just stick to that.

    I just put myself on the wait list for Black Spire on my local library's Overdrive program, and it's going to be 6 months before I can get it, with 22 people ahead of me. Luckily I've got plenty of other stuff I want to read.

    The Phoenix system has eight copies on order (physical books), and only two holds have been placed, so you could be in the first group to receive them if you can make it out to one of the branches.

    We don't know anything for sure beyond the fact that Timothy Zahn has said that Filoni has the first option when it comes to what happens to Thrawn next. Whether Filoni chooses to exercise that right remains to be seen.

    See above in regards to the fact that we don't know anything beyond the order of use for the Thrawn character should further stories be made.

    Started it, need to finish it. Wish Dawson had explained what happened to Syen.

    I was reading through the description of the final collection of Marvel's first Darth Vader series and it brought up something that I have been unclear on for a while now. How do you pronounce Executor? Is it exe-cutor, like someone who executes people or exec-utor like someone who is in charge of a will?

    It was pronounced Exec-utor, as in someone in charge of a will on Robot Chicken, so that's what I go with.

    The official site's Q&A had it as ex-E-cu-tor, like the person who is in charge of wills and estates. The only time it was any different was in one of the early Marvel comics or newspaper strips, and I would not place much weight on them currently.

    The thing is, we have a word for that, and it's not "executor".

    Just got back from FanX 2019 (Salt Lake City's Comic Con).
    Had a great panel with Timothy Zahn, Kevin J. Anderson and John Jackson Miller.

    So we went through the Triple Force Friday reveals, and they revealed a whole bunch of toys for The Mandalorian, but still no word on books or comics. I was expecting to get at least one or two before the show started, but now I'm thinking if we do get some, we'll get them after it's premiered.

    The fall schedule for novels and comics is pretty much packed solid for tie-ins with Galaxy's Edge and TROS. I'm sure we'll get tie-ins for The Mandalorian at some point next year.
