Episode 135: Star Wars in '77

Planet 8 Podcast

Feb 22 2024 • 1 hr 16 mins

Take a trip with the Planet 8 crew back to 1977, when an amazing new sci fi film premiered, a film like nothing we had ever seen before -a little movie called "Star Wars!"  It's hard to recall now, but at the time, when it came out, it was revolutionary. It was a phenomenon, and it was also-all we had! There was no Empire, no Return, no TV shows or book series, it was just one film. And we loved it.

We'll talk about everything from how we first heard about Star Wars, through our experience of seeing it the first time, to what made it so special back then. We really sent ourselves back, at least mentally/emotionally, to that time to capture what it felt like when Star Wars was new. It's easy to forget now, but it truly was a special time.

For our Sensor Sweep, Bob and Karen will share a number of Star Wars related items...Larry, not so much! Listen in for some fun stuff.

That's it for now. We'd love to hear your Star Wars experience - you know where to go:

It's Star Wars, not A New Hope!
