In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:
#70: The Making of Star Wars (1977)
This special originally aired on ABC in 1977. It is hosted by C-3P0 and R2-D2, and narrated William Conrad (Cannon himself!!!). I remember watching it when it first aired, and again several years ago when I ordered the VHS tape through some cereal giveaway. It is great to see some of the behind the scenes footage. It is also fun to watch the silly banter between the “robots” R2 and 3P0.
