Rebel Force Radio: Star Wars

Most Star Wars fans know that there were scenes shot for George Lucas's original "Star Wars" film from 1977, like those featuring Jabba The Hutt & Biggs Darklighter, among others, that ended up on the cutting room floor. For years, there has been a selection of fans who believe they saw the Biggs scenes and more during the film's original run. We try to put those fuzzy memories to rest with an in-depth Investigative Report featuring our special guest, Steve Sansweet. Plus, we review all the special features of Del Rey's "Making Of..." Ebooks series, Seth Green updates IGN on Star Wars and we discuss Disney's vague announcement about "Darth Vader TV Specials". Stick around to hear Billy Dee get right to the point in the Quote of the Week! Don't forget, listen to get deets on brand new RFR T-Shirts!

RebelForce Radio introduces Star Wars Influences.  This new monthly show will take a close look at the most important influences to impact the creation of the Star Wars saga.  From Akira Kurosawa to Joseph Campbell to Flash Gordon and beyond, Jimmy Mac and Paul Bateman will dig deep beneath the surface of the many resources used by George Lucas and collaborators to create the galaxy far, far away.  In this first episode, we discuss Kurosawa's "The Hidden Fortress" and dismiss the myth that Star Wars was a direct recreation of the classic Japanese film.  Plus, Tatooine origins, and "Dune".  And, Paul reviews the new book "Star Wars Art: Concepts", Star Wars 1313, and more.  Join us each month as we discover the Influences of Star Wars on RebelForce Radio.
