Yet Another Star Wars Podcast: A New Hope
Join Anders, Colleen and Daniel as we take a hyperspace trip down memory lane to discuss Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope! We’ll marvel at the Box Office numbers, reflect on the NUMEROUS updates that the film has gone through (major shout out to Marcia Lucas’ original editing prowess! Not as much of a shout out to digital Jabba the Hutt....) and discuss how our relationship to Star Wars has evolved through the years.
Anders beats Colleen to the punch and gets in a Rebels shoutout! We share the most untouchable and (somewhat) unbearable moments from the film and then consider how, despite launching a Fandom Religion, this movie is pretty scant on details about the Force.
Finally, we provide some content recommendations for you if you are also a big Star Wars fan.
