National Public Radio's 1981 adaptation of "Star Wars" was one of the most successful presentations in the history of radio--and a very tough act to follow. Nevertheless, two years later, the members of the "Star Wars" production team eagerly returned to create a radio version of "The Empire Strikes Back." Like its predecessor, this electrifying drama boasts an outstanding cast (including Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Anthony Daniels as See Threepio, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, and John Lithgow as Yoda); a greatly expanded script, with many scenes not found in the movie; and audio engineering of unparalleled excellence. "The Empire Strikes Back" takes you once more into a galaxy of pure sound and limitless imagination for an adventure you'll never forget. "Star Wars"(R), (TM), & (c) " 1993 Lucasfilm Ltd."
Lucas is the creator of Star Wars and director of New Hope
