Vice TV will hold a world premiere for the Nacelle Company’s new Icons Unearthed series July 12, with the first installment of a 6-hour deep dive into the Star Wars Universe. You may have heard of Nacelle Company from their hit series’ The Toys that Made Us on Netflix, and A Toy Store Near You on Amazon.
In Icons Unearthed: Star Wars Marcia Lucas, Oscar-winning film editor and ex-wife of George Lucas, sits down for her first-ever on-camera interview and provides unique insight into the rise of LucasFilm — including her 14-year marriage to and eventual divorce from George Lucas — the editing of the original Star Wars trilogy, the origin of the idea that Darth Vader would be Luke’s father and if there were really originally plans for nine movies.
Icons Unearthed: Star Wars includes exclusive interviews with Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Paul Hirsch, Phil Tippett, Rick Baker, Ken Ralston, John Dykstra, Howard Kazanjian, Julian Glover, Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine), Gus Lopez, Tom Spina and many more. Icons Unearthed: Star Wars is narrated by Michael Pennington, who portrayed Moff Tiaan Jerjerrod in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
Nacelle Company CEO Brian Volk-Weiss said, “Star Wars is the movie that inspired my entire career, so to be hearing new stories from the people who were there…was mind blowing not just once or twice, but again and again. I believe fans of the franchise will be blown away by what we unearthed.”
The series will world premiere with the first Star Wars installment on July 12, 2022 at 10 p.m. ET on Vice TV. Get your DVRs ready!
