Q: Which version of the movies are you watching?
A: We’re watching the original theatrical versions, as presented on the 2006 DVDs.
Q: Why not do the Special Editions, since they’re the ones that are availble?
A: It’s hard to pin down one definitive edition of the Trilogy, as pretty much every release has had some new batch of alterations (read this for a mind-boggling list of changes), but we feel the ones we’re using best represent the version that we grew up watching.
Q: How many times have you guys seen Star Wars?
A: Several, I think.
Q: Are you going to cover all the movies?
A: Let’s finish Star Wars and Empire and see what happens.
Q: Why don’t you guys call it A New Hope?
A: When the movie came out, it was just called Star Wars. The lines “Episode IV: A NEW HOPE” were added to the opening title crawl in 1981. The 2006 DVDs preserve the original crawl, much to Pete’s delight.
Q: Speaking of opening titles, what’s that groovy version of the Star Wars theme you guys use as your intro song? What about the closing theme? Or the song that plays when you’re doing ads?
A: Our main theme is a song called Living In These Star Wars by The Rebel Force Band. We use the beginning of the ‘Disco Version’ as our opening song, and we used an instrumental break from the original version to play us off at the end of each episode while covering Star Wars.
When we’re trying to sell you stuff, the version of the Imperial March playing in the background is from an excellent album called ‘Ukulele Force‘, which also features Pete’s favorite version of “Love Theme From Attack Of The Clones”.
