Aside from George Lucas, one of the most important figures in the legacy of Star Wars is arguably Lawrence Kasdan. The filmmaker made his screenwriting debut on 1980's Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, co-writing the script with Leigh Brackett, and he returned to co-write Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi with George Lucas himself. More than 30 years later, he returned to co-write Star Wars: The Force Awakens with J.J. Abrams, and he is also writing the Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo Movie with his son Jon Kasdan, which is set for release on May 25, 2018.

You really have to watch and pay attention to get all the bands (which will be available on the website today), but the highlights are Kendrick Lamar, Hot Chip, St. Vincent, Mumford & Sons, Wilco, The Black Keys, Sam Smith, Billy Idol, Elton John, and so many more.
