Wookiee Radio 3: Archived With Marc Wendt

On this episode of Wookiee Radio, we talk with Marc Wendt, former archivist for Lucas Films. We start with his current job working for archive.org. This is a great site by the way. It is an archive of millions of free books, music, movies, software, websites, and more. We then get to the meat of the interview and find out a bit of what an archivist for Lucasfilm does, as well as how Marc got the job. Marc has some great stories about toy companies coming to Skywalker Ranch and pitching their ideas for products for the prequel movies. We also learn about the 18,000 square foot space that they used for storage. I picture this warehouse like the warehouse scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, when they are looking for the Ark of the Covenant. Maybe it is just me. We also find out the strangest licensed products Marc has seen, as well as what his favorites were. We also talk about TV scripts that George Lucas had written, and how Marc thinks this could be Lucas’s best work yet. All in all if you are a Star Wars fan, you do not want to miss this episode.
