Episode 394 – PODRACE MONTH – The Many Versions of the Podrace

As we come into the final lap of PODRACE MONTH here at Blast Points, we’re taking the time to examine something that has confused us for decades, the many versions of the podrace.   In 2009, the podrace dazzled fans when The Phantom Menace arrived in theaters but there were some who said it was too long.  So when the DVD arrived in 2001, what did George Lucas do?  He made it even longer.   And there were deleted scenes on the disc that were even longer still!   And then it changed for the blu ray and then it changed again for the 3D release,  Listen as we go over as many changes as we can and wonder how we’ll survive this year’s big re-release!  So yell some nonsense for Jabba, celebrate the love and listen today!
