This introduction to Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Special Edition was recorded on Thursday, April 25th 2002 at 8 pm from a local Fox TV station in the US by "videoholic" Ray Glasser. Part of the Star Wars 25th anniversary celebration, the segment runs approximately 5 minutes. In it, C3P0 and R2D2 recap some of the events of the Star Wars saga, bridging the gap between the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy by explaining how Jango Fett's young son grew up to become the fan favorite villain, Boba Fett. Despite captivating the Ewoks with his tale in Return of the Jedi (complete with sound effects), poor scripting here leaves C3P0 living up to what he originally told Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: "I'm not much more than an interpreter and not very good at telling stories. Well, not at making them interesting, anyway."
