Podcast Stardust #364: Dave Wolverton & The Courtship of Princess Leia

by Podcast Stardust

We remember Dave Wolverton by discussing The Courtship of Princess Leia and then share our favorite Darth Vader quotes for James Earl Jones’s birthday.

There was a lack of news regarding new or upcoming Star Wars projects in this past week. Therefore, we take the opportunity to remember Dave Wolverton after his untimely passing. We reflect on his biggest contribution to Star Wars, The Courtship of Princess Leia, and how it has impacted Star Wars stories ever since. Later, we celebrate James Earl Jones, the voice of Darth Vader, in recognition of his 91st birthday by sharing some of our favorite Darth Vader quotes.

In this fully armed and operational episode of Podcast Stardust, we discuss:

  • The passing of Dave Wolverton,
  • Our memories of reading The Courtship of Princess Leia,
  • The legacy of The Courtship of Princess Leia,
  • James Earl Jones’s 91st birthday, and
  • Our favorite Darth Vader quotes.
