The Making Of Return Of The Jedi

This is the book that provides the behind-the-scenes story of the final installment of the original Star Wars trilogy, Return of the Jedi. Previously unpublished photos and production artwork depict the early sketches for villain Jabba The Hut, ranging from a long-armed, narrow-headed beast to a four-legged, web-handed amorphous blob tethered to machines. Concept illustrations of Luke Skywalker’s escorted visit to The Emperor’s presence place the encounter within a Gothic castle, Art Deco hallway, and stalactite-roofed subterranean lava lake. Script excerpts reveal George Lucas’ story notes: “...the Emperor is the evil one—he kills Luke’s father. Vader begs Luke to kill him, he does." The word “Sister!” inserted as a note into a scene idea written on a section of lined notebook paper reveals the moment Lucas may have decided that Princess Leia was Luke’s sibling, while thumbnails of top secret “Blue” pages show last-minute dialogue changes to the sister revelation. Hardcover; 372 pages. 11" H x 12" W x 1 1/4" D. (4 1/2 lbs.)
