299: Dan Madsen, Celebration 0 Commentary

We go back to 1987 with Dan Madsen! Over Memorial Day weekend in 1987, Star Wars was celebrating its 10th Anniversary. To commemorate such a milestone, Starlog Magazine held a convention in Los Angeles called, Starlog Salutes Star Wars–A 10th Anniversary Tribute to George Lucas and the Galaxy Far, Far Away Which He Created!” We prefer the title – Star Wars Celebration 0.

Only a few thousand fans attended, as opposed to the tens of thousands that attend these past Celebrations. I was there and, another big Star Wars fan was there, a fan who would rise in the ranks to become the founder and president of the new Star Wars fans club and publisher of the upcoming Lucasfilm Fan Club magazine, Dan Madsen! On this episode we will listen to a selection of the George Lucas Q&A Panel, and comment on his answers. What predictions and statements came to be? What was George’s answer to a pointed question, “Why is there only 1 woman in Star Wars?” George’s answers may blow your mind.
