On this episode we celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back with our special guest, the author of The Making of The Empire Strikes Back, former Lucasfilm Executive Editor, J.W. Rinzler! We get deep into the history of how the film was made, like why George Lucas had more shots added AFTER the movie came out, Alec Guinness’ return, major story changes, why George Lucas was really not into planned out storytelling, and many more incredible stories.
We end the show by featuring the best of your tweets in #ResistanceTransmissions! The Resistance base is open to all, so spread the word about TRB and join us!
