Podcast Stardust #105: The Empire Strikes Back – Part 5 – You Seek Yoda

by Podcast Stardust

In part five of our The Empire Strikes Back discussion, Luke doesn’t know it yet, but he meets a Jedi Master. Plus, Han and Leia continue to banter.

We return to our ongoing series discussing The Empire Strikes Back in the 40th anniversary year of its release

On this fully armed and operational episode of Podcast Stardust, Jeff McGee joins us and we discuss:

  • Jeff’s first memories of seeing The Empire Strikes Back and his favorite moments from the film,
  • Luke Skywalker and R2-D2 crashing on Dagobah and meeting Yoda – plus, did R2-D2 and Yoda just forget each other?
  • Mark Hamill’s performance with Artoo and Yoda,
  • Han Solo taking advantage of C-3PO and his skills in talking to the Millennium Falcon,
  • Han and Princess Leia’s budding romance and continuing banter, and
  • Whether Han’s advances on Leia were welcome or not.
