It’s Saga Year and this month is all about Alan Arnold’s legendary, amazing and scandalous Empire Strikes Back making of book, Once Upon A Galaxy. Notoriously hard to get a hold of and chock full of juicy stories, this book has a reputation for being one of the best movie making of books ever written and has a legacy still felt today. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, we went through the book and picked 40 of the most fascinating and our favorite moments. There’s old ladies on skis, Star Wars mythbusting, cast fights, Gary Kurtz’ record collection, lots of Last Jedi connections and so much more! So, get out your copies of Fitness is Fun and celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!
This is THE episode you’ve been waiting for. Join us as we perform full audio dramas of THREE classic Ewok children’s books from the 1980s. First it’s the literary staple, The Baby Ewok Picnic Surprise. Do Ewoks make good babysitters? And what about these secret berries Ewok can’t get enough of? That is followed by the darker middle chapter, The Ewok Who Was Afraid. This is a daring tale of cruelty, courage and magic gems that aren’t really magic. Finally we close with the controversial Three Cheers for Kneesaa! A tale of empowerment, archery and the originator of #NotMyWicket. So come along as we travel to that forest moon and celebrate the love!
