STAR WARS Radio Series
'Basically, I developed the names for the characters phonetically. I obviously wanted to telegraph a bit of the character in the name. The names needed to sound unusual but not spacey. I wanted to stay away from the kind of science fiction names like ZENON . . .. They had to sound indigenous and have consistency between their names and their culture.'
-- George Lucas
The orginial 13-part series is based on the screenplay by George Lucas, the novilization of the story, and over 30 new scenes created specifically for the radio version. The series stars Mark Hamill as Luke and Tony Daniels as C-3PO, the roles they played in the first three films.
For more on producing the original 13-part STAR WARS Radio Series, see my Author's Comments at Amazon.com.
The original 13-part series is issued in a 6-cassette set and in a 6-CD set. It's also available as nearly half of the episodes in the CD and cassette editions of the complete STAR WARS Trilogy Radio Series [STAR WARS, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, & RETURN OF THE JEDI] . . .
The Brian Daley scripts for the original series were published by Random House/Del Rey in 1994 as Star Wars: The National Public Radio Dramatization.
