NPR Star Wars RAdio Drama
« Reply #15 on: June 20, 2008, 03:56:16 PM »
Rico has mentioned this on his show a long time ago, but I just got around to listening to this production and I really liked it. It has a ton of additional backstory from Lucas original story outline that I found actually mad the tale even more interesting, although from a film pacing standpoint I can see why these scenes were cut out prior to production for the most part. There's a lot about Luke and his life on Tatooine as well as more Leia and some interesting Imperial storylines. There is a ton of exposition done through dialogue which sounds odd at times and the torture scene between Vader and Leia is downright pornographic!  :jawdrop
Anyone who hasn't heard this should give it a listen.

Weird you mentioned this Bryan.  I was just thinking about it today.  I'm thinking of devoting part or all of a podcast to it.  I have the whole set and love them!

I'm planning on covering this on the July 4th weekend podcast.  Show will come out on July 6th.  So feel free to send your audio comments in before then.

Rico, I don't know if you bought the Star Wars Vault by Steve Sansweet, but there's a clip of a documentary about the making of the radio dramas on the included CD's. If you don't have it let me know and I can send you the MP3. It has some interesting info on how they'd build a scene using just audio.

I have it but haven't checked out the CD's yet.  Thanks for the heads up, I'll look for it.
