Caitlin and Charlotte discuss Leigh Brackett, the first writer of the sequel to 1977’s Star Wars. Known as “The Queen of Space Opera,” Leigh Brackett worked with George Lucas to write a Star Wars sequel before it was called The Empire Strikes Back. Sadly, Brackett tragically died of cancer before completing the project and Lawrence Kasden was brought on — but several of her ideas and concepts made it to the screen. Caitlin and Charlotte discuss Brackett’s life, her involvement with Star Wars, her 2nd draft, what they liked about it and what they didn’t, and so much more.
