    This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to an NPR affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development.

    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

    Listening to a story i already know by heart via the movies, with a few added tidbits and backstory.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars (Dramatized) to and why?

    Old Time Radio plays


    Which character – as performed by Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels – was your favorite?

    Mark Hamill and Tony Daniels are solid and straight from the movie. Luke is fleshed out a bit more.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The same stirring scenes from the film.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed it immensely. Its an easy listen and fleshes out Luke and Leia a bit more than in the original movie. Would have been interesting to see those additional bits filmed. Its a bit jarring at first to hear some of the voices as I'm used to the original actors that portrayed Han and Leia. Its interesting to hear the dialogue ive heard a thousand times with different tones and inflictions.

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.
