star Freddie Prinze Jr. about his work on the series, in addition to some non-Star Wars
projects. Here's a brief portion of the Q&A:

I’ll finish with this. I have a four-and-a-half-year-old daughter. We were watching the Disney parade. It was hard for me to see Darth Vader walking in front of Jasmine from Aladdin. But, you have to accept that. My daughter’s awesome, by the way. She’s like, “Who’s that?” I said, “That’s Darth Vader, baby girl.” She says, “Is he a bad guy?” I said, “Yeah, he’s a bad guy.” She goes, “Does he get to do whatever he wants?” And I literally had this parenting moment where I’m like, Oh my God, I’m looking at me, because I always rooted for the bad guy when I was a kid. I said, “No, he has a boss.” She asked, “Who is his boss?” I said, “The Emperor.” She said, “Who’s The Emperor?” I said, “I am! Now be quiet and watch the parade.”
