For most of us at FTN – and I’m sure most of you reading this – The Empire Strikes Back is in our top five movies of all time. The sequel to A New Hope, it’s not just the best Star Wars movie, it’s just a great movie.
Now the Daily Mail have released a series of pictures (courtesy of Lucasfilm, and from the upcoming book Making Of The Empire Strikes Back by J.W Rinzler) that show that, despite the pressure of the shout -how exactly do you top one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time – the cast ahad a lot of fun while filming what is easily the darkest of the saga. Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker)Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Peter Mayhew )Chewbaccca), Dave Prowse (Darth Vader) and the late director Irvin Kerschner all feature. We love these pics. A lot.
We could write about these all day, but we’d rather let them speak for themselves.
