Welcome to StarWarsInterviews.com! On this website you’ll find over 150 (and counting) unique, self conducted interviews with people who worked on the Star Wars movies and spin offs.
In 1983 I was introduced to Star Wars. In that year (I had just turned 7) I saw some bits of the famous Sarlacc Pit scene from Return of the Jedi (which was just released) on television. Shortly after this I saw it at the cinema and became a fan for life. This was my first step into what Obi-Wan calls ‘a larger world’.
Over the years that followed I never lost interest and things got serious. I worked for various Star Wars websites (EchoBase.nl, ToscheStation.nl, Wattographs.com and right now for StarWarsAwakens.nl: the Dutch Star Wars community) and ended up being a staff member for various events like DutchStarCon, ScreenHeroes and FACTS. I even worked twice as the assistant of my childhood hero: Anthony ‘C-3PO’ Daniels, which is still my personal Star Wars highlight.
Another thing I started to do was to interview all the people involved with Star Wars: cast, crew, you name it. Many of these interviews were published on the websites I worked for (and on my old blog which is even mentioned in the credits of JW Rinzler’s book ‘The Making of Return of the Jedi’) and now this site: StarWarsInterviews.com which is a collection of all the interviews I have done since 2005.
That’s my story.
This site is about everyone involved with the Star Wars movies and spin offs. The cast, the crew…it’s a large online collection unique, self-conducted interviews. Nothing but stories from the people who worked on the biggest saga ever.
I hope you enjoy this site. May the interviews…I mean: ‘Force’ be with you,
PS: This site wouldn’t have been possible without the help of my StarWarsAwakens colleague Ramon Muradin, who created the whole look of it. Thanks!
Also, a big thank you to Rick Stanley from SciFiSigners, Danny Rouwet from Coolwaters, Lucasfilm, Niels Revers from the 501st for creating the logo of this site and of course: the cast and crew who were willing to cooperate for your help!
