#060 - Star Wars Film School - J.R.R. Tolkien
Star Wars Film School returns with a very timely and unique episode focusing on the world of fantasy. While we’ve talked genre influences in the past, this time we’re focused heavily on thematics and narrative as we discuss the influence of fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien on Star Wars. We discuss how Lucas was influenced by The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, as well as a look at the prequel trilogy, The Clone Wars TV Show, and Star Wars Rebels. We also get an opportunity to talk new comics and the long-awaited return of the aforementioned Rebels on the day this episode airs!
