Melissa Miller, co-host of the Star Warsologies podcast, moderated a panel of creatives who worked at ILM during the Special Edition and prequel eras. Don Bies, Kim Smith, Fon Davis, Nelson Hall, and John Goodson share stories and so many behind the scenes photos from Attack of the Clones. Adam Savage gave a great intro as well!

Check out the video to see all the amazing images! The panel is full of fun stories, including what cat litter and lasagna have to do with ILM. And what the acronym SWAG stands for. Enjoy!

For more stories from Don Bies, listen to his episodes of Star Warsologies. Part one and part two!
