GUESTS: World Music composer / performer Farzam Salami, and the podcast troupe "We Found Microphones" on Aziz Ansari's MASTER OF NONE. THE MOVIE SNEAK is honored to welcome New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster. The most critically acclaimed creator of "novelizations" (the "reverse" art of adapting films and their scripts into books instead of the other way around), Foster's works include ALIEN, OUTLAND, THE THING, THE LAST STARFIGHTER, ALIEN NATION, THE BLACK HOLE, CLASH OF THE TITANS, STARMAN, PALE RIDER and both J.J. Abrams STAR TREK reboots. He's creator of the original script ("In Thy Image") which became STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE. His non-novelization books include SLIPT, TO THE VANISHING POINT and the popular SPELLSINGER and PIP AND FLINX series. And his near career-long association with the STAR WARS universe includes the novelization of the original 1977 film (ghost-written as "George Lucas"), the first original "expanded universe" entry - the wildly popular SPLINTER OF THE MIND'S EYE, along with STAR WARS: THE APPROACHING STORM and the recent STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Lovers of both film and literature will get as much of a kick outta this one as we did! Rights to film / TV clips and other audio excerpts held by copyright owners.
