The Bleak Reality – Star Wars
Truth be told, there were too many amazing behind the scenes photos from Star Wars to just choose one, so we chose four. The first shows just how small the Millennium Falcon really was. That thing probably couldn’t even fly. The other photo shows a different, insanely nerdy side of Boba Fett. When George Lucas came back to shoot the remastered versions of the original trilogy, he had animator Don Bies stand in for the bounty hunter. Bies may have been able to pull off the cool Fett with a helmet on, but when you take it off, he looks every bit the computer guy he is in real life, not that there’s anything wrong with that. He just doesn’t look like the kind of guy to strike fear in you, unless you haven’t paid your taxes, of course. The third photo shows how they accomplished the awesome AT-AT walker fight in The Empire Strikes Back. Finally, in the fourth photo, we have the legendary scene with Luke hanging off the ledge, screaming like a little baby after he learned the truth about his old man and making the ugliest face in cinematic history. Turns out the fall off that ledge wouldn’t have been so bad. Actually, it looks like it would be quite pleasant.
