The Empire Strikes Back

About This Episode

Our #skytalkersmachete series returns with the classic sequel, The Empire Strikes Back! We look at a listener email about Anakin’s virgin birth, and then get right into things. First, we discuss the story of the film; then, we talk character journeys. We ask: why is Luke so angry on Dagobah, as per Yoda? What do we think of the Han/Leia relationship as it is here? And finally, we talk about how this fits into the machete order since putting The Phantom Menace in front of it. We answer a ton of Twitter questions: we get into deleted scenes and the film’s initial reception. All this and more on this episode!

Correction: Charlotte means Boba Fett, not Doctor Aphra, when discussing Vader learning about Luke. Also, we forgot to mention our dear Patron, Emma! We love you, Emma!  

Follow us on @skytalkerspod for more fun and individually @crerrity and @caitlinplesher. Thanks for listening!
