Brian Volk-Weiss Talks Stars Wars and New Docuseries ‘Icons Unearthed‘ airing Tuesdays on Vice TV, with a special interview featuring Marcia Lucas.

Brian Volk-Weiss, the man behind, ‘The Movies That Made Us‘ and ‘A Toy Store Near You‘ returns with another instant classic docuseries entitled ‘Icons Unearthed‘ where he focuses on the George Lucas era Star Wars films of Episodes I through VI, and features the second ever Marcia Lucas interview in over 45 years.

We tease Volk-Weiss that he needed to be on his best behavior or else, fear the wrath of Amanda Lucas, the Heiress to the Empire turned Mixed Martial Arts fighter(5-1-0), if he wasn’t kind to mother, Marcia.

Volk-Weiss briefly touches upon the issues with Mattel and how they are moving in a positive light, his love of Star Wars, a new found appreciation for the Prequels and his respect for the hard work people put into VII, VII and IX, even thought they weren’t the standard that most had hoped.

Official Press Release:

The Nacelle Company, the studio behind The Movies That Made Us, The Toys That Made Us, A Toy Store Near You, Down To Earth with Zac Efron and Behind The Attraction is excited to announce the kick-off of ICONS UNEARTHED, a new anthology documentary series that will focus on some of the biggest movie and TV franchises in history. ICONS UNEARTHED will launch with a 6-hour deep dive into the Star Wars Universe, that covers Episodes I-VI. Icons Unearthed will receive its world premiere on Vice TV, with the first Star Wars installment debuting on July 12, 2022 at 10pm ET.
Icons Unearthed: Star Wars uncovers the unknown secrets of the Star Wars universe through exclusive and candid interviews with Marcia Lucas, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Paul Hirsch, Phil Tippett, Rick Baker, Ken Ralston, John Dykstra, Howard Kazanjian, Julian Glover, Ian Mcdiarmid, Gus Lopez, Tom Spina and many more. Icons Unearthed: Star Wars is narrated by Michael Pennington, who portrayed the iconic character Moff Tiaan Jerjerrod in Return of the Jedi.
Marcia Lucas, Oscar-winning film editor and ex-wife of George Lucas, sat down for her first-ever on-camera interview to discuss her unique insight into the rise of LucasFilm, including her 14 year marriage and eventual divorce from George Lucas, the editing of the original Star Wars trilogy, where the idea for Darth Vader to be Luke’s father came from, and if there were really plans for 9 movies.
Directed by Brian Volk-Weiss (The Toys That Made Us, The Movies That Made Us, Behind The Attraction), Icons Unearthed: Star Wars will be like no other Star Wars documentary you’ve ever seen before, with unprecedented access to the key players in the creation of the franchise. The Nacelle Company spent months filming and interviewing filmmakers, actors and crew members across the world, from England to Tunisia, to source exclusive, previously unknown, and surprising stories.
“We’re so excited to embark on this partnership with Brian and Nacelle to tell these amazing unfiltered stories as only VICE TV can. And the Star Wars franchise, perhaps the most iconic entertainment property of all-time, is the natural place to start on this epic journey,” said Peter Gaffney, SVP of Content Strategy & Program Scheduling, VICE TV.
“Star Wars is the movie that inspired my entire career, so to be hearing new stories from the people who were there, like Marcia Lucas, Howard Kazanjian and Billy Dee Williams, 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” said Nacelle Company CEO Brian Volk-Weiss.
The Icons Unearthed documentary series is executive produced by Brian Volk-Weiss, Cisco Henson, Ian Roumain, Alyssa Michek and Ben Frost. Pete Gaffney, Falguni Lakhani-Adams, and Andrea Brakke oversee the project for Vice TV.
Icons Unearthed‘ airing Tuesdays at 10pm ET on Vice TV.
