A Show To Shake The Stars

Mar 29, 2020

We’re back to review the radio drama for Return of the Jedi! Obviously, we will start with episode one, ‘Tatooine Haunts’.

Before breaking down the episode, Steve gives a brief history of the Jedi radio drama and how it came to be 13 years after The Empire Strikes Back aired on NPR.

Some of the topics that Steve covers during the show include:

  • His complicated relationship with The Rise of Skywalker
  • How Brian Daley weaves in some of the Star Wars expanded universe into the canon of the radio drama (CANON, CANON!)
  • The new casting for Luke Skywalker
  • The complex relationship between Darth Vader & Emperor Palpatine
  • Huttese swear words
  • How Steve now likes Anthony Daniels!
