Empire Strikes Back - ‘Behind The Scenes / Making Of’ images thread…

 
A companion thread (of sorts) for the Original Trilogy Film Crew & People Behind The Scenes: Profiles, Info & Links… thread - which aims to highlight the sheer brilliance, hard work, talent and awesome contributions of the Original Trilogy film crew, designers & artists, model-makers, special effects, set production, costume & make-up, stuntmen (and women), background actors / extras, publicity, and other amazingly talented and dedicated people who worked ‘Behind The Scenes’ on ‘The Making Of’ these three classic, landmark and groundbreaking Star Wars films…

…some of which may not have been seen for many years - as their respective work (all - or parts of) has been removed and replaced via the later (and continuing) Special Edition changes - with the unaltered original theatrical version of the films remaining unavailable to officially buy and experience.
 

Or just a thread for putting up some great ‘Behind The Scenes / Making Of’ pics from the films (including deleted scenes too) 😃
 

There are two similar threads for the other films in the Original Trilogy below:-

Star Wars (1977) - ‘Behind The Scenes / Making Of’ images thread

Empire Strikes Back - ‘Behind The Scenes / Making Of’ images thread
 

So if you have a cool, rare, alternative, different or favourite ‘Behind The Scenes / Making Of’ photo or image, please share and talk about it, in here…

To kick off:-
 

Ewoks takeover the filming of Return Of The Jedi (which could explain many things, and note the film crew surrendering to the vicious little critters in the background)…

 
 

Just look at the size of that thing…

This pic caused speculation over the years that there was a deleted scene featuring a Krayt dragon. It’s actually the Dragonslayer puppet.

Ha! 😃 Didn’t know that. Yeah, I should’ve mentioned the dragon was from Dragonslayer. I’d like it if there was a higher resolution of this photo, this was the biggest version I could find without it being either washed out or having the sides cut off considerably.

^ Please feel free to post up images from deleted scenes too mate - all in the ‘Making Of’ of these great films (and I changed the thread’s OP to include / mention it) 😃

Nice one, benduwan 👍

 

There are a handful of ‘Deleted Scenes’ threads that can be found in the ‘Star Wars scenes, tropes, meta etc…’ section of An Index & Help Thread for Original Trilogy Discussion… - though there are no other ‘Deleted Scene’ image threads that I can find… (I hope to be wrong on that).

Never saw that second Trandoshan on Jabba’s barge before!

Artoo being pressed into being a rolling beer keg brings up a thorny question or two. Was he always capable of dispensing drinks or was he modified by Jabba’s people? And if they did mod him, how did they not find Luke’s hidden saber?

Are we sure David Lynch didn’t contribute any ideas? 😃

And then there’s this guy, who looks like he wandered in from some WWII movie being filmed next door. What’s his backstory?

So I just finished taking over 500 screenshots from the TN1 16mm scans of the Classic Creatures and From Star Wars to Jedi documentaries and I’d like to share a link to the photos. What’s the best way to do that? I normally upload photos to imgur if I want to share them here, but for so many I’d like to make an album of some sort and just post some of the highlights. Any suggestions?

EDIT: Never mind. Making an imgur album was easier than I thought. I’ll post the link and some highlights later today.

Have those been released? It drove me crazy that prints of both docs popped up on ebay last year when I was strapped for cash. I’d been searching for them for years.

Yeah, they were both included with 4K83 as bonus features.
