Overview

Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope: The Original Radio Drama As Heard on National Public Radio: Featuring the Original Music and Sound Effects by George Lucas

When this series was first broadcast on National Public Radio in 1981, it generated the largest response in the network's history: 50,000 letters and phone calls in a single week, an audience of 750,000 per episode, and a subsequent 40-percent jump in NPR listenership.This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to an NPR affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development. Director John Madden guided a splendid cast-including Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels, reprising their film roles as Luke Skywalker and the persnickety robot See Threepio-through an intense 10-day dialogue recording session. Then came months of painstaking work for virtuoso sound engineer Tom Voegeli, whose brilliant blending of the actors' voices, the music, and hundreds of sound effects takes this intergalactic adventure into a realm of imagination that is beyond the reach of cinema.

A novel that matches the quality of the original film in almost every way.

The amazing stories that George Lucas had masterfully created had been brought to life in our imaginations with the Star Wars Radio Drama. The added dialoge to the story adds a more in-depth understanding into the Star Wars Universe. A truly AWESOME adventure!

Even though a New Hope is Episode IV, we all remember this as the first. If you read this book closely, it sets up the stories that followed even the prequels. I just bought this in hardcover (had the paperback for yrs) Well worth the $$. It's great having all the books now in hardcover. What a wonderful series to read over & over & introduce & share with younger generations. By far the best.

The NPR Radio Dramatization of Star Wars was excelence at its peak. Cleverly written and expertly delivered, it is a must have for SW fanatics and casual fans alike.

'Better than the movie' is how my 10-year old son described this outstanding dramatization of the Star Wars tale. The sound effects were as stunning as the movie and helped to paint a clear picture in our minds of everything that was happening. This was a great way to alleviate the boredom on a long car trip. We had to rush out and buy the others.

Mark Hamill (luke skywalker's real name, when not acting) is awesome in the movies, and awesome in this book. Even though, personally, I like the movies better, this still is a great book. I could totally picture Chewie, Han, Leia and Luke in the Death Star's trash compactor:)
