Overview

National Public Radio's 1981 adaptation of Star Wars was one of the most successful presentations in the history of radio-and a very tough act to follow. Nevertheless, two years later, the members of the Star Wars production team eagerly returned to create a radio version of The Empire Strikes Back.Like its predecessor, this electrifying drama boasts an outstanding cast (including Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Anthony Daniels as See Threepio, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, and John Lithgow as Yoda); a greatly expanded script, with many scenes not found in the movie; and audio engineering of unparalleled excellence. The Empire Strikes Back takes you once more into a galaxy of pure sound and limitless imagination for an adventure you'll never forget.Star Wars®,™, & © 1993 Lucasfilm Ltd.

Meet the Author

The creator of the Star Wars Saga and Indiana Jones series, George Lucas is also the critically acclaimed director of American Graffiti and THX 1138, as well as the producer of a myriad of independent films. In 1971, Lucas formed his own film company, Lucasfilm Ltd., in San Rafael, Calif. In 1973, he co-wrote and directed Graffiti, which won the Golden Globe and garnered five Academy Award® nominations. Four years later, his Star Wars broke all box-office records and set new standards for sophistication in film visuals and sound. Lucas continued the Star Wars saga as storywriter and executive producer with The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. He returned to directing in 1999 with Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which was the first major live-action film to be projected digitally.  Three years later, Episode II Attack of the Clones broke new ground as the first major movie shot using entirely digital media. In 2005, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith concluded the live-action Skywalker arc, but Lucas continues to explore the “galaxy far, far away” and his impact on the film industry continues to grow.

In the late 1980s, Lucas donated the Star Wars story rights toKUSC-FM, the National Public  Radio af?liate station at his alma mater, the University of Southern California. The result was the Star Wars Original Radio Drama and subsequent Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi radio dramas
