How would you like to spend a day on set of The Empire Strikes Back? This week we get to live vicariously through Matthew Pak, who won a Bantha Tracks Contest and got to do just that! Reading lines with Carrie Fisher, lunch with Harrison Ford, an interview with producer Gary Kurtz. Matthew’s stories are unreal. Do you remember reading about this contest in the Official Star Wars Fan Club Magazine and Starlog Magazine?
