Star Wars Radio Drama - *update in 1st post* - completed review
Time

yes , It is strange for me as well as I was listening to The Empire Strikes Back Radio Drama on Friday ! I like it a lot though John Lithgow as Yoda is strange and takes some getting used to, also strange is that a very young David Allen Grier voices Boba Fett .It is shorter than the original radio drama but Mark Hamill , Billy Dee Williams and Anthony Daniels reprise their roles . The Jedi drama is ok but only Anthony Daniels is in it , it makes a lot of references to Shadows Of The Empire which I thought was cool .I also have the book of the Script which was published by Del Rey for The Empire Strikes Back in 1995 , it is illustrated throughout with Johnston and McQuarrie storyboards and some of the dialogue is different to the commercially released tapes and cd’s . There was an article I read on the differences somewhere , wish I could find it …would love to see it if anyone has it .

Recommendations for Legends (old EU) books, comics, etc.

and I really do not get how long time members here can be so rude to someone who just put themselves out there and maybe like something you do not , dude was not even being critical of anything or any one and just wanted to socialize , I wonder how many people get turned off of this site and never come back due to this treatment . You never really know who they could be or what possibly valuable contributions they might make .

Hi I’m New to the Forum. anyways after seeing the new Disney films (Force Awakens,Rogue One,Last Jedi)I always felt the Books from Legends were a lot better then Disney movies. I’m currently enjoying the Courtship of Princess Leia.

I enjoyed that one as well and still have the paperback , I like how they introduced the Witches of Dathomir and they made it into clone wars in modified form . A warm welcome to you .

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **
Time

It seems like they are using a lot of concepts from both the Brian Daley and A.C. Crispin novels , I thought the trailers looked pretty good , Alden has big shoes to fill. When he did the voice over about being in the streets since 10 years old , did anyone else think it sounded like Ray Liotta in Goodfellas ? the last bit of dialogue Alden spoke as Han sounded a little too high pitched but other than that , I can’t nitpick too much .I will reserve judgement for when I see the movie . All of this makes me wonder how James Bond fans felt after Sean Connery left and others played the role .

Stumbled across this. Kinda weird, but less cluttered and more painterly than the original.

I think that is the best TFA poster I have ever seen !

The original Marvel Star Wars series

Has anyone read this?

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Star_Wars

Looks kind interesting

I have read it , I am glad Lucas consulted others and continued with further drafts , it was neat to see one of his original scripts as a comic book though and I enjoyed all of the Ralph Mcquarrie concepts they used . I was wondering what relevance it had to the old Marvel series and then I saw the name of Randy Stradley as the editor and remembered he wrote the original Marvel Star Wars 86 , The Alderran factor ,which was a very good story IMHO and one of the few instances where you see Leia process the loss of her homeworld

It says here that the sound was a combination of an elephant recording from 1958 which had been used in several movies, overlaid with car noises.

that is what Benn Burrt says himself in the commentaries as well as many a trade magazine from back in the day like Starlog , Cinefex etc

and not all of the sounds were from stock libraries , on the commentaries to the blu rays and dvds of the OT , Ben Burrt mentions that the sounds of the walkers are recordings he made at a metal stamping plant and that he got a lot of mileage out of a dumpster lid near his home for things like the carbonite slab of Han Solo crashing to the ground as well as an old projector motor and the back of a crt monitor that his microphone picked up for the hum and buzz of the lightsabers

that is a good observation , never thought of it until just now …did the Wilhelm scream show up in the current sequel trilogy anywhere ?
