Last time I heard Star Wars on the radio was back when it was on PBS all those years ago. Since then, I wanted to hear them all and this is the best way to listen to them. Episode IV of course is the best of all of them by far and the longest. Episode V is shorter and Episode VI shorter still. Anthony Daniels and Mark Hammil are a treat to listen to in scenes never in the original movie. The added scenes to Episode IV are a must for any Star Wars fan. Of course the other shows are shorter and have less added scenes because of budget reasons of the time and that is a true loss. Even if you didn't like Episode VI more new scenes would have been cool. Anyway, by far the original Episode IV is a must hear but the others went too quickly.
I cannot believe there is only one review for this. This production is absolutely amazing. Originally aired on NPR this radio adaptation is truely one that any Star Wars fan shouldn't be without. The catch prase for this whole production was "you've never seen Star Wars until you've heard it". Mark Hamill still voices his original character for IV and V, and (of Course) Anthony Daniels voices C3PO. The stories, while ultimately still the same, are also enhanced and expanded. With the popularity of portible DVD players a lot of families don't really share their driving experiences anymore on any road trips... grab a hold of this and let your kids' imagination go wild along with your own. All together this production is about 13 hours long and is great for those long drives. I'm just hoping that they'll eventually create a radio adaptation of the new trilogy. Give it a go... !
This was really interesting. It wasn't so must an audiobook as an old time radio show. The music and sound effects were pure Star Wars, but the great part was that the dialog was modified so that the characters told you what they were looking at. A wonderful listening experience!
