Breaking Bond Part XIII: Moonraker

“Aren’t you a little short to be a storm trooper?”  After the Earth-shattering success of the Summer of 1977 starting on Memorial Day with the release of ‘Star Wars’ followed up by the 4th of July release of ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ the race was on for round two…or in Bond’s case round 11 and while George Lucas toiled away on the planet Hoth aiming for a 1980 release – Cubby Broccoli and company got to work on what would prove to be the Bond to top them all 1979’s Moonraker. 

Did you know Moonraker would cost more to make than the past 6 Bond movies combined? 

Did you also know it would mark the final time many of the 1960’s Bond team would work together? 

Making this picture was both a sendoff to the turbulent Bonds of 70’s and a springboard of what was to come next….the Bond of the 80’s!  But before we get there it’s time to take off in our yellow space suits and practice re-entry!   

So, Sit Back And Relax Mom & Dad Won’t Be Back For At Least An Hour!  And Welcome To The Latch Key Kids Presents “Breaking Bond Part XIII: Moonraker”
