John and Craig welcome back Lawrence Kasdan for a deep dive on The Empire Strikes Back to celebrate this iconic film’s 40th anniversary.

We talk about the inspiration behind Yoda, keeping the Skywalker/Darth Vader connection a secret, and balancing competing storylines. We also take a look at Kasdan’s original handwritten script, accompanied by table reads from John and Craig!

And in our bonus segment for premium members, we answer audience questions with Lawrence Kasdan.

This special live show was produced in partnership with the Writers Guild Foundation.
