Nerd Lunch Episode 29: Discussing the phenomenon of popular background characters in Star Wars
Here we are, one episode away from #30. This week’s topic came about due to a comment by Jeeg on my Star Wars Episode I in 3D article from back in February. Jeeg wanted to discuss why Star Wars characters like Boba Fett, Darth Maul and Admiral Ackbar are so popular with fans when they do next to nothing in the movie.
It’s a valid question and I think is indicative of sci-fi properties in general, but most noticeably with Star Wars. Join us for a fun Star Wars discussion that delves into not just the movies but the expanded universe of books, comics and yes, we again mention the Holiday Special (it just won’t go away).
