The Godfather


 
Matt Flesher, a self-taught sculptor with 19 years experience in the Special Effects, Stop-Motion Animation, and Toy Industries, joins Digging Star Wars host Chris Mich to explore the connections between Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. But the conversation doesn't stop there as both Matt and Chris muse on what's possible with the upcoming Episode VII installment in the Star Wars saga. Featuring music by Paul Oehlers, George Wolstenholme, Peter Fey, JDubious and more.

As mentioned in the episode, here is an official Star Wars Trivial Pursuit Card with a question regarding just one of The Godfather's connections to Star Wars...



 And here is a picture circa August 1998 of several Digging Star Wars guests and a very special lady...


 
Pictured above: Holding R2-D2 is my wife Christy. To her left (faking pushing up glasses) is DSW: The Terminator guest David P. Ramos. In the back with tan shorts and a go-get-'em attitude is DSW: The Godfather guest Matt "Chief" Flesher, and to the right is DSW: The Clone Wars guest Josh Taback.

And, for a limited time, you can listen and download Digging Star Wars - The Godfather as an MP3 via the SoundCloud link below...
