Star Wars Week: DISNEYLAND Records

The original storyteller books and records for Star Wars were released by DISNEYLAND Records years before the company would forge a larger relationship with Lucasfilm and decades before it would buy the company outright.

R2-D2 and C3-PO were especially popular with kids and DISNEYLAND Records buyers.

The records primarily featured Anthony Daniels narrating them and R2-D2's beeps as a reminder to turn the page.

The record series was used to teach young children as well.

It was an interesting partnership, considering that Walt Disney Productions had originally turned George Lucas down when he approached them with the idea for Star Wars.
