Episode 20: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
A Long time ago...in a galaxy far, far, away...
Vader laid the smackdown on the rebels! He froze Han Solo in carbonite, choked some admirals, and revealed the dirty secret of Luke's parentage! SPOILERS ABOUND!
The Fly Paper Dungeon celebrates the 30th anniversary of of this landmark film. The Empire Strikes Back took the Star Wars universe to the dark side and back. The personal favorite of actress Carrie Fisher, The Empire Strikes Back is the benchmark by which all Star Wars films are judged. Its reputation, as part of the original trilogy, has held firm over the past 30 years.
Future episodes about A New Hope, and Return of the Jedi, are forthcoming.
Join us for a heated battle in Hoth, and then chill out with a carbonite freeze.
