Behind the Scenes At “Return of the Jedi”

by on June 11, 2012

This video is approximately seven minutes of silent Super 8 film footage shot in 1982 by a Star Wars fan named Jeff Broz at Buttercup Valley in the southeastern California desert near Yuma, CA of the filming of Return of the Jedi. You see some scenes being shot or rehearsed, the sets, and plenty of behind-the-scenes shots. Slave Leia! Boba Fett! Spare R2-D2s sitting around awaiting action! If you’re a Star Wars completist, this stuff is gold.
