The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

There are few things in life more sacred than Star Wars. As most men know, there were only three Star Wars movies and the most impressive of those was The Empire Strikes Back. Dark movie, epic cliffhanger, snow planet, and sweet special effects – what more could you ask for? Thirty years later, J.W. Rinzler releases a pictorial coffee table book that is the only thing we like almost as much as the Big Book of Boobs and/or Butts (before you get all uppity, we said ALMOST) – The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. It’s filled with rare photographs, annotated with behind-the-scene details, and covers the entire story from screenplay to completion. According to the great bunned one herself (Carrie Fisher), it’s “the acid flashback they’ve been promising us without the mess and fuss of dropping acid . . . again. A trip worth taking.”
