About the Author

The creator of the Star Wars Saga and Indiana Jones series, George Lucas is also the critically acclaimed director of American Graffiti and THX 1138, as well as the producer of a myriad of independent films. In 1971, Lucas formed his own film company, Lucasfilm Ltd., in San Rafael, Calif. In 1973, he co-wrote and directed Graffiti, which won the Golden Globe and garnered five Academy Award® nominations. Four years later, his Star Wars broke all box-office records and set new standards for sophistication in film visuals and sound. Lucas continued the Star Wars saga as storywriter and executive producer with The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. He returned to directing in 1999 with Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which was the first major live-action film to be projected digitally.  Three years later, Episode II Attack of the Clones broke new ground as the first major movie shot using entirely digital media. In 2005, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith concluded the live-action Skywalker arc, but Lucas continues to explore the “galaxy far, far away” and his impact on the film industry continues to grow.

In the late 1980s, Lucas donated the Star Wars story rights toKUSC-FM, the National Public  Radio af?liate station at his alma mater, the University of Southern California. The result was the Star Wars Original Radio Drama and subsequent Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi radio dramas

I naturally fell in love with the NPR broadcast of Star Wars radio dramas.
Alice M. Adams
Overall, this is a great set to listen to during commutes, even if you've watch the movie dozens of times already.
Enjolras
It's great detail that adds so much more character depth and so much more to the Star Wars universe at that time.

I'm surprised I've been a Star Wars fan for so long and had never bothered to listen to this. It's actually a great way to relive the movie. It's quite different from the actual film script and includes expanded and deleted scenes. For me, the best part was the beginning, with Luke's friends at Tosche Station. It has such a 1970s flavor and would have started the movie off really differently (although nothing beats the actual opening space battle).

Overall, the case works well. Mark Hamil actually plays Luke Skywalker and does a great job of it. Likewise, Anthony Daniels plays C-3P0. Most of the other characters come off at least similar to their on-screen counterparts. Han is appropriately cocky, although he's also more selfish than portrayed in the films. Leia has a good amount of spunk. Unfortunately, the series didn't quite get Darth Vader right. The torture scene with Leia - not in the movie for good reason - was particularly onerous and Vader sounds more like a shrink than a Sith Lord.

One other thing tat bugged me is the episode breaks. Originally, when this aired as a radio show, it was broadcast as 13 episodes, and each time there was an introductory narration and credits. Unfortunately, these remain on the audiobook version. Thus, every 15 minutes or so you hear another listing of credits, then another introduction. I hope future versions eliminate this and allow listeners to hear just one uninterrupted book.

The ESB episode wasn't quite as strong. Luke, Han, and Leia are all well done. However, Vader comes off as corny and Yoda just doesn't have the majesty he demands. Also, it doesn't have many deleted scenes, aside from the Battle of Derra at the beginning. It's about an hour shorter than the ANH radio show.

I usually don't write reviews, but this one I think is important enough to write.

Let me begin by stating I am only through A New Hope. I have not begun TESB or ROTJ.

I love the original movies. I grew up with them, the toys and games, and everything else. I'm not as much a fan of the newer movies, et al. Hence, I haven't been on the look out much for new SW stuff. However, I saw these one day while searching for Lord of the Rings stuff, and thought it may be interesting, so I picked this CD trilogy up.

I can't tell you how excited I am I did. The CDs add so much depth to the movies. Not only do you revist every part from the movie, but it's like you found a treasure trove of deleted scenes. Some of these scenes I had heard of or seen before in either books or behind the scenes material, but to see them pefectly fitted in to the story as smooth flowing as it is was just perfect!!

I won't spoil any details for you, but if you are a Star Wars fan, and don't have to have everything presented to you visually, you are going to be in for a huge treat with these CDs. I can't wait to listen through it again just to get more detail. I thought I knew a lot about the original trilogy before, but this just doubled everything I knew. Literally. A New Hope is about 5.5 hours long... 3 or 3.5 hours longer than the movie. That's a lot of extra stuff!! But, it's not time wasting or fluff. It's great detail that adds so much more character depth and so much more to the Star Wars universe at that time.

You won't be disappointed in this gem of a find!!!

Back in the early eighty's I would rush home from school turn on the radio which was always tuned the KCRW in LA (lived in the valley)so I could hear these radio dramas. It was a high light for me at the thimeI loved the story being filled in with more detail then the movie showed.
I was delighted when I came across this series on Amazon. I loved that I could with my nephews. My disappointment came when I found that there are only six disks and they don't content episode 13. I'm looking for it on line. Still love having what I have. And yes I'm calling the seller.

I'm a StarWars fan and glad I bought these CDs. I remember listening to the original when I was a kid and it was neat to get the whole set. These are great for kids and the average fan and the only reason it didn't get 5 stars was the horrible acting by John Lithgow playing Yoda. He sounds like a mix of a drunken Grover/Cookie Monster/Irishman and almost made Empire Strikes Back unbearable. There was only a small part in ROTJ. The stories and effects themselves are well done and is great to listen to on a long car ride.

I originally owned copies of the first and second radio dramas on audio tape and loved the dramas but not the constant need to flip tapes. Also, the wayward nature of the tapes in their boxes bugged me. The boxes were not very user-friendly or practical. I sold the sets awhile ago but missed the dramas. I decided to check Amazon and see if I could find them in the other, more costly(back in the 90s, anyway), available format. I found my "cds" and they were way more compact then the original cd/tape "individual" dramas were packaged. Now "they" all fit in one very small box. The cds in this set are held securely in little folding books with liner notes booklets for each drama. They slide into their box and don't pop out. So why love the dramas? I grew up listening to "CBS Radio Mystery Theater" in the 70s and loved to use my own imagination to flesh out the stories in my mind. I naturally fell in love with the NPR broadcast of Star Wars radio dramas. Even, the audio special effects and music are carried over from the movies and some of the actors lend their voices to their roles in the dramas. Sure, the movies are great but the dramas are wonderful, too. As for the beginning and ending credits with each chapter, I don't really get bugged about it. Tape flipping was the ultimate "hell" factor for me. Also, you can hear who is doing what parts without pulling out a booklet. I am all ears.
