The Making Of ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ Documentary

Star Wars may very well be the greatest science fiction film franchise of all time. And The Empire Strikes Back is inarguably the best of the bunch. And that’s not just because of the story and themes, but also because of its groundbreaking production and special effects. If you’ve ever wanted to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it took to create this movie masterpiece, you’re in luck — as a long-lost documentary, called The Making of “The Empire Strikes Back,” has just resurfaced.

Created by Michel Parbot, this hour-long look at the second Star Wars film was thought to have disappeared — lost to history and the speculation of fanboys everywhere. Mysteriously, however, it has popped back up in full on YouTube, completely free for everyone to enjoy. From cast interviews, development of the costumes, and the construction of some of the most impressive set pieces (like the ice planet, Hoth), this is a marvelous in-depth glimpse at one of the greatest films to ever grace the silver screen.
