Podcast Stardust #93: The Empire Strikes Back 4 – The Asteroid Field

by Podcast Stardust

The Battle of Hoth concludes, but Han and Leia must evade the Empire in part four of our year-long discussion of The Empire Strikes Back.

We continue to celebrate the 40th anniversary year of The Empire Strikes Back with our monthly series examining 10-12 minute segments of the film. This is part four, and it continues with the second part of the Battle of Hoth and concludes with the asteroid field chase.

On this fully armed and operational episode, Jay Shepard from Jedi Journals, joins us to discuss:

  • His favorite moments and characters from The Empire Strikes Back,
  • The conclusion of the Battle of Hoth,
  • The relationship of Han and Chewbacca,
  • Han, Leia, C-3PO, and Chewbacca’s escape from Echo Base,
  • Luke’s departure from Hoth,
  • The Empire’s pursuit of Han and the Millennium Falcon through the Asteroid field.
