293: The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker

We continue the 40th anniversary celebration of The Empire Strikes Back with Kim Simmons who was a Kenner photographer during the vintage era. All those Kenner Star Wars toy packaging you remember? He had a HUGE hand in them! Kim is producing a book which will showcase the Empire Strikes Back toy line photography in all its glory – please check out his Kickstarter here – The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker. Now sit back and enjoy some fantastic stories.

Also on this episode, we delve into the newest Disney+ release – Artemis Fowl. Hit or miss? How true was it to the book series? Let’s discuss.

On June 15th, Reedpop announced that Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2020 is cancelled this year and will return in 2022. But out of the ashes a phoenix rises. In August of this year, we are planning a fan-run event: Zooming through Star Wars Celebration!! If you’re interested, please sign up here.
