162 Nien Nunb Lives!!

Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!
Are you ready for some Star Wars fun Neverlanders? This week we welcome Mike Quinn, puppeteer, puppet builder, animator, and all around creative force!
Not only has Mike worked with the Muppets, but he did some awesome work with the Jim Henson company in films like The Dark Crystal and Labrynth!!
And despite the common error many Star Wars fans make, Mike Quinn is the puppeteer behind Nien Nunb in Return of the Jedi, though many make the mistake thinking that Richard Bonehill was the puppeteer. In truth, the now deceased Mr. Bonehill was an extra that wore the full suit Nien (or Ten) Nunb before George Lucas plucked the background character out of obscurity and Mike Quinn created a puppet to sit with Lando in the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon! Mike will tell us all about it on this week’s show! -editors note Richard Bonehill did sell autographed photos of the puppet, but that wasn’t Mr. Bonehill.
Before that we’ll hear a bit of Disney news and visit the Neverland Story Time for some special Star Wars fun!
