The Empire Strikes Back with Clive Revill

I Was There Too #48October 26, 2016

On the second of three very special Star Wars trilogy episodes of I Was There Too, Matt is joined by Clive Revill who voices The Emperor in the pre-special edition 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back. Clive tells us about how director Irvin Kershner reached out to him for the role, finding the voice for The Emperor, and his thoughts on the final physical representation. Then, expert witnesses Pete the Retailer and Alex Robinson of the Star Wars Minute podcast join Matt to figure out who and actually what played the body of The Emperor during a new segment called Was I There Too? Plus, another classic Star Wars Superego sketch!
