This is the podcast of the movie, TV and genre website www.shadowlocked.com, featuring debate among our writers and guests, as well as occasional interviews. It may get silly, it may get serious…
Why did George Lucas hand The Empire Strikes Back to his old film-school professor Irvin Kirshner - hating the resultant footage - when he was supposedly the hottest and richest property in Hollywood? Is he really still living in 1977? And what spicy Star Wars tattoo does outspoken contributor and self-confessed ‘optimistic masochist’ Aaron Knier have on his body?
In this inaugural podcast for shadowlocked.com, founding editor Martin Anderson chats with Aaron about the glories, failings and fallacies of both the Star Wars prequels and their creator, George Lucas.
