28 - Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

Released 12/12/2016

Diminishing Returns finally take on the grandfather of franchise-filmmaking with a look at the original Star Wars trilogy and their own ideas for Star Wars sequels. The prequels and The Force Awakens are briefly touched on, but the real focus of this episode is Episodes IV through VI (A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi). Those other films will have to wait until the next Star Wars episode.
