I have always felt the ESB screenplay credit is unfair to Kasdan. I mean if Lucas really wanted to credit Brackett’s discarded work, at least they should have put Kasdan’s name first on the list.

Yeah, it’s a bit strange. Also, I liteally had to go check the end credit as I did not remember Brackett being credited first. I’ve always just taken it for granted that ESB and ROTJ was written by Kasdan.

I also find it amusing, and a bit strange, that the script says its based on the novel by George Lucas. With stuff like this I find it less and less strange that there are people who believe that SW is based on novels.

Anyone know which scene that last photo is from?

The only glimpse we get of the bigger fleet ships in the hangar. Too big even for the massive set at Elstree.

It took me a second to recognize Kasdan in the last two photos as he’s rarely present in BTS photos (which isn’t to strange considering people rarely bother to take photos of people writing movies).

Kasdan and Lucas both shopped at Chess King apparently. 😉

I sometimes forget how physically and mentally grueling ESB must have been for Mark. Buried in snow, repeatedly slapped by a Wampa hand on a pole, dunked in a giant aquarium, weeks if not months on a mudhole of a set with only Artoo, a rubber Muppet and various live reptiles to act opposite of. Not to mention the Vader duel!

On top of all that, he and his wife were expecting their first child during production. That’s stressful enough without being the lead in a Star Wars film to worry about.

I saw this photo so many times in the past few years. But a few moments ago i just noticed that R2 is also there! 😃

Rogue One is redundant. Just play the first mission of DARK FORCES.

I guess it is also a rare photo of Lucas with a genuine smile in recorded history. 😄
