What a Piece of Junk!: The Empire Strikes Back turns 40!
Hello Space Junkies! We want to welcome you to the What A Piece of Junk! A Star Wars Podcast here on the Fandom Podcast Network! 

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away -- The Empire Struck Back! And that "long time ago" has now been four DECADES in the past. Climb aboard as Scott, Derrick and Nathan are joined by a veritable cavalcade of podcast and Star Wars stars to discuss the second Star Wars movie and one of the most influential films ever made - The Empire Strikes Back! It's been 40 years but our love of "Empire" as it is affectionately known in fandom has never waned. From the introductions of Boba Fett and Yoda, to the MOTHER (or perhaps FATHER?!?!) of all movie moment revelations, Episode V always ranks at or near the top of people's "Best of" Star Wars lists. Dig in with us as we celebrate, analyze and reminisce about this landmark film.
