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.
Show Notes It’s been a great year to be a Star Wars fan. The year started with Star Wars once again in theaters as The Phantom Menace kicked off the Star Wars 3-D conversions, the summer ended with a bang at Star Wars Celebration VI, and then the dreams of Star Wars fans worldwide came true when it was announced that there will be more Star Wars films, the first just 3 years away! Looking back at the year that was, listen to Star Wars Action News hosts Marjorie and Arnie are joined by a number of friends and show hosts to look back at what 2012 meant to Star Wars fans.
Rich and his wife have made the ultimate commitment: they’ve been through their DVD collections and are getting rid of any duplicates. Some lucky audience member is going to win them all! But before that it’s time to talk to the star of The Calcium Kid, Peter Serafinowicz. Fans of Star Wars will be creaming out of their arm pits when they hear his tales of working with George Lucas and having to pay to go the premiere. Astonishing stuff. Rich provides an alternate reading of Darth Maul for the next director’s cut. There’s talk of zombies and Tony Wilson, Terrance Stamp and Will Arnett and lots of inside gossip about working on US and UK TV. And someone is going to win a copy of East is East. C’mon it doesn’t get better than that.
