Special Guests: Roger Christian, Michael Kaminsky, Chris Taylor, Alexandre O. Philippe, Harmy

Guest Co-Host: Mr. Chris

Continuing our Maudit May series, we look at George Lucas’s Star Wars (AKA Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope), the sci-fi film from 1977 that has been rendered unavailable in its original form due to its creator’s tampering.

We’re joined by Outside the Cinema’s Mr. Chris to get nostalgic and discuss how Star Wars may (or may not) have influenced our lives.
