Star Wars: Episode Zero - The Wizard of Oz!

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, using STAR WARS as the starting point!

This week on EPISODE ZERO they revisit THE WIZARD OF OZ, a towering, epic production which - like STAR WARS - pioneered new effects and technologies, and inspired a ceaseless wave of imitations and homages! Bibbs and Witney break down the genius of THE WIZARD OF OZ and the many ways it directly and indirectly inspired scenes, characters and ideas in STAR WARS.

Give it a listen!
