Return of the Jedi turns 30!
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Return of the Jedi's opening day (5/25/83), Digging Star Wars has compiled our own tribute trilogy to Episode VI.
Often mocked amongst older fans as the weakest original trilogy link due to cutesy Ewoks and "Muppets" in Jabba's court, ROTJ also gave us Admiral Ackbar, Speeder Bikes, Force Lightening and Slave Leia. In a post-Jar Jar world, I think we can all agree that "Jedi" truly does rock. And, for those who have listened in to an episode or two, it's no secret that ROTJ is my favorite Star Wars film for many reasons. Listen in to these episodes and you may find "Jedi" is worthy to be called your favorite, too.
