Kelly Marie Tran Ships Stormpilot and More STAR WARS Fangirling

Y’all. Is there a bigger fangirl in the Star Wars universe than Rose Tico? C’mon, admit it—when the newest core member joined the resistance in The Last Jedi, she was basically a proxy for and all our feels. So, naturally, when Disney asked us if we wanted to hang out with Kelly Marie Tran at Fangirling HQ, we gave ourselves whiplash saying yes (after we picked ourselves up off the floor).

And we had SO MANY QUESTIONS for her when she arrived. Some appropriate (how much of your free time did you spend freaking out that you were in Star Wars? How amazing was Carrie Fisher?), others less so (what does Oscar Isaac smell like? JK we would never ask something so unprofessional. Also if you know, @ us).

And now you can watch the whole thing right here!

But you came here for the shipping convo, didn’t you? Well don’t worry, we’ve got that right here:

Like what you saw there? Interested in more discussions with, by, and about women, where everyone—yes, everyone (and yes, even you!)—is invited to nerd out about science and culture, talk about what matters, learn new things, nerd out over history, meet awesome ladies, and feel all your myriad feelings from a decidedly different point of view? Well let me go out on a limb and say that Fangirling is for you! And this season, we’ve got a heaping helping of everything you could want, every Wednesday on Alpha.

Besides, you’re not going to want to miss our fabulous guests, like Phoebe Robinson talking Game of Thrones in the Khaleesi Korner, Blue Planet II producer Orla Doherty, a spotlight on artist Jen Bartel, or our regular segments like “Worst Advice,” “Mansplain It to Me,” and “Real Fake Spoilers”!

So, really, you have no excuse. And why would you want to miss this? Get yourself in on the guilt-free fangirlsplosion with the hashtag #FangirlingIsBack and sign up for a free month of Alpha with the code ‘fangirling’! Because who says being smart and having a lot of feelings are mutually exclusive?

Alicia Lutes is the Managing Editor, creator/host of Fangirling, and resident Khaleesi of House Nerdist. Find her on Twitter!
