We’re getting to a point in time, some thirty to forty years after the making of the Star Wars films, that ‘new’ vintage treasures from the vaults of various photographers, studios, or members of the set’s crew are becoming few and far between. Collectibles, models, and photographs… any form of memorabilia – both official and unofficial – get cinemaphiles excited. When they come out of nowhere, the surprise is a real thrill.
Such a huge collection of photos from behind the scenes of Empire Strikes Back, most of which I’ve never seen, is a real pleasure to flip through. Everybody’s here, from actors to producers to puppeteers.
I hope that you enjoy this gallery of images as much as I did.
