My buddy Steele has a great spoiler-free podcast. I highly recommend it. This week Steele has a special guest: Leonard Maltin. The interview is pretty cool. They discuss:
- Was Star Wars ripped off at the Oscars?
- His favourite things about Skywalker Ranch.
- Behind-the-scenes stories of his iconic interviews with George Lucas for the Star Wars VHS box set.
- As a film historian how does he feel about the special editioning of Star Wars? Do the fans or the creator “own” Star Wars?
- Leonard tries to answer the question what is George Lucas like and why?
- Gives his thoughts on the original trilogy, the prequels and on the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens while speculating on who Max Von Sydow might be playing.
- And that time he watched George Lucas write a $170 million dollar check.
I can’t wait until the movie comes out and me and Steele can chat about the last year!
