Publisher's Summary

Fifteen years after National Public Radio's wildly successful adaptation of Star Wars, and 13 years after The Empire Strikes Back, the trilogy hurtled to its long-awaited thrilling conclusion with Return of the Jedi.
Like its predecessors, this electrifying drama boasts a splendid cast (including Anthony Daniels as See-Threepio and Ed Asner as Jabba the Hutt), a greatly expanded script, with many scenes and characters not found in the movie, and audio engineering of unparalleled excellence.

Great

Before reading the previous review , I did not know that mark Hamill was not in this audiobook, I love all the Star Wars (Dramatizied) audiobooks so much, it is like watching the movie inside your head . It is the greatest listening experience I have had. I am speaking of the series, not just Return of the Jedi, which I loved, though minus Billy Dee, whose voice is very distinctive I felt a little cheated but it was still great because all the other characters are so well casted to the original voices. I loved Ann Sachs, her voice is captivating as Leia and Perry King as Han Solo is very good and they have good chemistry in this book. This is the best audiobook ever as far as I am concerned. I don't know why it is not number one every week.

Glad they finally finished it!

It took ten years for NPR to comlpete the Star Wars trilogy and even though it's missing Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, nearly half the program time and depth of story of the first installment, it's still a modern radio classic, and now it's available on Audible.

Not as good as it should be...

I loved the National Public Radio productions of both Star Wars and The Empire Strikes back - they really did engage with me as a listener and enhance the well known story into something fresh.

Return of the Jedi is almost there but not quite.

There are some great performances from the returning actors, Perry King as Han Solo, Ann Sachs as Princess Leia Organa, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO & Bernard Behrens as Obi-Wan Kenobi. However Joshua Fardon as Luke Skywalker makes Luke sound like he is ten years old and Paul Hecht as The Emperor is unconvincing.

However, the worst part of this production is that at the end of every chapter is roughly five minutes of SW theme music. Obviously I adore this music, but not at the end of every chapter. Its addition smacks of lack of content to fill up the episodes.

Tragically Scriptwriter Brian Daley died only hours after recording concluded and subseqent changes to fit in with the Star Wars prequels were added by another writer. Therefore for this reason alone, I would suggest that this production was unable to be given the gloss and polish of its predecessors.

Good but not much added

It's good but a bit of a let down after the other 2 that had more of the original cast and extra story. This is much shorter especially if you take out the music/credits. Having said that if you've got the credits it's hard to buy the other two and not this. Still scoring that the credits and music weren't just put at the end of the last episode.

Worthwhile even if you're lukewarm on Ewoks!

Although my least favourite of the original SW movies - this was much more enjoyable!
