Why It's Amazing: It resembles a sneaky pap shot exposing Carrie Fisher’s love of cold, hard metal.
Insight Into The Saga: Not content with having Luke and Han Solo following her around like lovesick puppies, Leia wants robots to love her as well. What a princess.
A Long Time Ago
Why It's Amazing: Ever wondered how they made those opening crawls? Can’t say we had either – but here we get an amazing insight into all the effort that went into them.
Insight Into The Saga: Nothing is ever what it seems.
Why It's Amazing: Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kerschner plants one on his wheezing, shiny villain.
Insight Into The Saga: So that’s why Darth’s so full of anger? He never really loved Padme? Explains a lot.
Why It's Amazing: All of the principals unite in their everyday wear (that’s a lot of blazers). Wasn’t Mr Ford a dashing fellow?
Insight Into The Saga: This would have been a very different movie had nobody been wearing their crazy outfits.
Catch Me If You Can
Why It's Amazing: We discover that Luke was never really in that much peril when he confronts papa Darth – he’s only got a 30 foot drop onto some squishy mattresses.
Insight Into The Saga: Luke’s a big drama queen.
Why It's Amazing: It’s every single piece of Boba Fett’s awesome outfit laid out ready to be put on. Trivia nugget: Joe Johnston is the one who painted the whole lot.
Insight Into The Saga: It must take Boba a long time to get ready in the morning...
Why It's Amazing: We get to see Phil Tippett and Jon Berg as they work their stop-animation (stomp-animation?) magic on the walkers.
Insight Into The Saga: Everybody in the Star Wars universe must be midget-sized – those things are tiny!
Why It's Amazing: In the PG-rated Warsverse, nothing of this sort happens on-screen. Ever. So it’s good to see a little naughtiness went on behind the cameras.
Insight Into The Saga: Now we know what Leia and Chewie get up to when Han was off rescuing the galaxy from itself. Somebody think of the children...
Why It's Amazing: Carrie Fisher lets her hair down, unravelling those infamous Chelsea buns.
Insight Into The Saga: By that broad grin on her face, Leia didn’t actually like having her hair rolled up in those tight, headache-inducing buns.
Dont Lose Your Head
Why It's Amazing: C3P0 takes it easy in-between takes, as Anthony Daniels slips off the metal skullcap and stands under a parasol to escape the blinding heat.
Insight Into The Saga: Wait, C3P0’s just a skinny man in a suit?!
Why It's Amazing: Now infamous, but no less awesome for that, here’s Star Wars ’ three leads with their director, chilling out on the set of Empire Strikes Back .
Insight Into The Saga: Anthony Daniels had his own chair!
A Touch Of Guinness
Why It's Amazing: Mark Hamill and Alex Guinness meet at Elstree Studios in 1979 to shoot a scene for Empire Strikes Back . Hamill reads his lines off-camera for the Brit ledge.
Insight Into The Saga: Obi Wan is capable of cracking a jovial smile, after all.
Why It's Amazing: Our six heroes unite for a rare snap of them all in the same frame.
Insight Into The Saga: Leia’s practically the same size as R2D2!
Why It's Amazing: Not only do we get to see a prototype R2D2, but we’re also given an eyeful of one of George Lucas’ truly dreadful jumpers.
Insight Into The Saga: R2D2 really is a rather simple little thing.
Why It's Amazing: Even more Wars cast members lose their heads, as Kenny Baker drags off his Paploo noggin – fairly disturbing.
Insight Into The Saga: This is what it would’ve looked like had the Ewoks been beheaded, as so many Wars fans demanded.
House It Going
Why It's Amazing: Luke’s home on Tatooine is actually nowhere near as remote as we first thought.
Insight Into The Saga: If we had to choose between living at Luke’s place, or the horrible squat buildings in the distance, Luke’s pad wins every time.
Why It's Amazing: Aha, another one of those bloody Lucas jumpers. We’re not surprised that Fisher seems to be considering poking him with a stick to get him to remove the offending article
Insight Into The Saga: Costume design ideas clearly did not come from Lucas.
Why It's Amazing: Remember that famous image from A New Hope of these three facing down their nemesis? This snap’s just ruined it – but we’re fine with that.
Insight Into The Saga: Han’s even more cocky in the face of danger than we first thought.
Why It's Amazing: Alec Guinness chills out on the Tunisian set of A New Hope . Talk about striking a pose…
Insight Into The Saga: No more wondering why C3P0 is such a, er, fruity fella - he's obviously modelling himself after Sir Guinness.
Why It's Amazing: It’s like the Boba Fett pic, only better – and infinitely more creepy.
Insight Into The Saga: Ever pondered over your bowl of morning cereal what a skinned Wookie would look like? Wonder no more…
