The latest episode of Star Warsologies is part one of our interview with Don Bies, an actual Star Warsologist!
Don Bies joined James and Melissa just after Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022 for an extensive chat about his time as an ILM model maker, Lucasfilm archivist, and all around Star Wars creative. Part one covers everything R2-D2 related. From operating the droid to character appearances, hear it straight from Don! R2 is his favorite character, and Melissa’s too.
Part 2 is here with more of this wonderful interview. Topics include Don’s on-screen appearances, including the infamous Boba Fett scene from Return of the Jedi’s Special Edition!
In Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. It’s a monthly podcast about science and Star Wars!
