Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this episode by talking about how they’ve been enjoying the “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian” docu-series. Dan & Jim then look back at the many challenges George Lucas faced while he was trying to mount a sequel to the original “Star Wars”


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Why the many production delays that “The Empire Strikes Back” experienced may have worked in Sir Alec Guinness’ favor

What’s genuinely kind of mind-blowing about the Father / Son dynamic that Dave Filoni sees being played out in “The Phantom Menace” & “Return of the Jedi”

Why Temuera Morrison joining the cast of “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” isn’t exactly a surprise to the more keen-eyed viewers of this limited series on Disney+

Who reportedly came up with the subtitle for “Star Wars 2”

How did a fire on the set of Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” wind up tripping up Irvin Kershner
