Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pics!
This particular Empire Strikes Back behind the scenes photo has a curious history. It was obtained… in a “unique” fashion by enterprising Star Wars fans in the weeks leading up to the release of The Empire Strikes Back.
I won’t get into the nitty gritty, but I will say it’s a good thing they didn’t run into a Dianoga. Star Wars fans should know what I’m talking about..
I’d have to comb through the massive Making of Empire book again, but I don’t think I’ve seen this shot before. In it we see Master Lucas checking in on a massive Star Destroyer model that I wish was hanging from my ceiling because I’m nerdy like that.!
Thanks to the Bothan spies who died bringing us this picture. Click to embiggen!

Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic ain’t quite done with the Bay Area just yet.
