Making of the Empire: More Pics, Interview mit Boba Fett

Heute erscheint der Behind-The-Scenes-Bildband „The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back“ mit drölftausend bisher unveröffentlichten Fotos. Vanity Fair feiert deshalb in dieser Woche Star War und hat bislang Interview smit dem Autor J.W. Rinzler, Mike Ryan aka Boba Fett und dazu gibt's noch „exklusive“ Bilder aus dem Buch.

Boba Fett besitzt übrigens eine Sammlung an Star Wars-Figuren. Ausschließlich Mini-Versionen von sich selbst, natürlich.

Well, I have (Laughs)—this is quite sad, now, really. I do have the big Boba Fett by Don Post, which I went to America to model for. I have that and I have lots of little trinkets and things like that. Only of Boba Fett, because I’m biased.

io9 hat noch „10 things you didn't know about The Empire Strikes Back“: „Yoda was originally named Buffy. No, really. In George Lucas' earliest outlines for the sequel, Luke meets a supernatural entity named Buffy, or Bunden Debannen. Here's how Lucas described it: Buffy very old — three or four thousand years. Kiber crystal in sword? Buffy shows Luke? Buffy the guardian. 'Feel not think.'“

Bild ganz oben: „Phil Tippett and Jon Berg stop-motion animate a shot with all three walkers (the background walkers are cutouts). Originally the plan had been to photograph the walkers against four-by-five Ektachrome transparencies shot in Norway; when these didn’t work as planned, matte artist Mike Pangrazio copied select Ektachromes onto large scenic backings.“

Bild darunter: „When Darth Vader (David Prowse) revealed his secret to Luke, Hamill was hanging onto a pinnacle above mattresses placed on cardboard boxes about 30 feet off the ground.“
