As most of you may know, ever since clips of this documentary surfaced online a few years ago, this became one of the “Holy Grails” of Star Wars. While the quality isn’t great, at long last we get to see the full 1 hour documentary. This is a direct rip from the DVD that i was given. The original ISO file will be found soon on the spleen and on the usual SW usenet group.

This seems to be from a different source than the one that StarWarsArchives originally posted clips from, so i decided to make this a new topic.

Enjoy

This is where the fun begins.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

Anyone tried to reach out to the other Camera/production people for their thoughts? Only one left possibly.
Gilbert Loreaux: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1141961/ & https://www.facebook.com/gilbert.loreaux
Eric Pittard: (Died 2013) https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0685889/
Joan Weideman: (Died 2005) https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0917785/

They seemed to have been given free reign over all aspects of production, quite remarkable.
The soundmix at 29:00 seems to have more synthesizer then I recall from the final movie version. Any other sound bits seem like a different take to anyone?

Interesting documentary, thanks for sharing. It’s funny to see the principals talking about the love triangle before they knew about Luke & Leia.

Does anyone know who is this guy who looks and sounds weirdly like Adam Driver? He’s at 14:47.
Adam Driver?

Ha, I thought the same thing when I saw this documentary.

What’s the internal temperature of a TaunTaun? Luke warm.

Maybe Adam’s immortal just like Rasputin and Keith RIchards.

Thank you for sharing this documentary, Adywan. Just watched it today and thoroughly enjoyed it - fascinating to see what they achieved back in 1980 with the technology available. The Hoth Wampa shoot was a real highlight.
