This week we do the Kessel Run in twelve pod’secs as we talk about Solo, the Star Wars film that finally gives us the answer to the age old question of “how did Han get his last name?” Special thanks to Jeff Elster for joining us.
ALL OF US HERE AT AFTER THE HYPE LOVE STAR WARS, BECAUSE… WELL… IT’S STAR WARS!
In honor of Star Wars Day (May 4th) we will be releasing one “Hype to Remember” a day to cover all 8 of the released Star Wars films! I’m RETURNing today because OF THE JEDI!
Three years isn’t the longest you’ve ever had to wait for a sequel. But when the last movie you saw was Empire Strikes Back, that 3 years might as well be 300. People were losing thier minds! Who is the other? Is Vader really Luke’s dad? WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO HAN??? Then boom! Revenge of the Jedi trailer is released and, well… at least one of the questions is answered:
All of us here at After The Hype love Star Wars, because… well… it’s STAR WARS!
In honor of Star Wars Day (May 4th) we will be releasing one “Hype to Remember” a day to cover all 8 of the released Star Wars films! I’ll kick things off with STAR WARS: EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE!
Star Wars is so much more than a movie. It’s a way of life. I have no idea when the first time I saw Star Wars was, it’s always just been a part of me. I wish I was around to see this trailer in theaters for the first time. It’s such a joy to watch.
Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)
They have no idea how to market this movie! Is it a fantasy? An action movie? They just keep telling us how great it is, then throwing in a random clip. Clearly they didn’t have James Earl Jones voice track in yet. They didn’t have colors on the light sabers. The whole thing looks like a cheap 70’s sci-fi flop. But still, somehow, looks totally amazing! This trailer had a tough job to do, and it does it perfectly! I can only imagine seeing this once, maybe, then seeing the finished product in theaters! My mind would have been blown!
I love this trailer, it’s the perfect set up to the perfect movie!
May the 4th be with you! We’re joined by special guests Amberlee and Jeff to talk about the STAR WARS film we’ve all been waiting for, or not. Our reactions are pretty mixed. We make our special guests break down the film to hilarious results.
