Carrie Fisher Interview - Star Wars - 1977

https://youtu.be/Yyrdqpep1pM

"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas

I’m unsure why he gave the sled skis instead of repulsors. I mean, sure, it has skis on set, but that’s presumably just so it could be pulled around. I don’t see any greebling on the skis and in universe, it looks like it would use standard speeder technology.

Well, there are vehicles in the SW universe that use both wheels and tank-treads, so I guess he figured why not? Plus, I suppose it could still use repulsors of some kind to propel it.

Also, there’s this exchange between Han and the Deck Officer in ESB explaining why they use Tauntauns;
“Are the speeders ready?”
“Not yet. We’re having some trouble adapting them to the cold.”

“Inside The Star Wars Empire: A Memoir” by Bill Kimberlin’:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB-nVCcde7U - a 17 minute video at the Bill Kimberlin youtube channel
 

The blurb…

‘“Inside The Star Wars Empire: A Memoir” by Bill Kimberlin. My twenty years working for George Lucas and the third of the original Star Wars series…“Return of the Jedi.” This is the inside story.’

 

^ A most intriguing watch - especially around 8 minutes in - with Bill Kimberlin talking about that George didn’t want a duplicate master of the prints made for the Original Trilogy before work started on the 1997 Special Edition… that the 1997 Special Edition was, according to Lucas, “this is going to be original version - what I am doing now” (aka ‘The Final Cut’ as later described by George).

Bill Kimberlin does also later state there are other prints of the unaltered theatrical version of the Original Trilogy still in existence.
 

There are also some quality and rarely seen photos featuring in this video - well worth a viewing.

Bill Kimberlin comes across as a very interesting guy - his book Inside The Star Wars Empire: A Memoir is probably a decent read too…

This is perhaps the most esoterically specific thing I’ve seen analysed in a SW movie, and that’s saying a lot with this fan base. I’m always amazed by what people manage to find in what is already one of, if not the most analysed films of all time.

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!
