Podcast Stardust #144: The Empire Strikes Back, Part 8 – Always in Motion

by Podcast Stardust

Star Wars artist Joe Corroney joins us for this month’s discussion of The Empire Strikes Back as we cover Lando’s introduction and Luke’s decision to leave Dagobah.

Luke Skywalker continues his training on Dagobah, but he is interrupted by a vision of a city in the clouds. Furthermore, his friends are there and they are in pain. What does this mean? Should he help them? Yoda advises that the future is difficult to see and urges Luke to stay and complete his training. Meanwhile, Han Solo and Princess Leia arrive at Cloud City in need of repairs for the Millennium Falcon. Han’s old buddy, Lando, is there to greet them.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Whether Yoda can see the vision Luke had of Cloud City,
  • Han and Leia’s arrival on Cloud City,
  • Lando’s introduction to the movie,
  • Whether Lando had any motives for greeting Han the way he did,
  • Why Leia only introduced herself as Leia,
  • Luke’s decision to leave Dagobah to rescue his friends,
  • If Obi-Wan and Yoda didn’t properly convey the jeopardy Luke faced by going to Dagobah, and
  • Leia’s unease with what was going on in Cloud City.
