BEHIND THE SCENES: AN EVOLVING JEDI...
Here's an early in-the-works piece of costume design art by Nilo-Rodis Jamero for Luke Skywalker from RETURN OF THE JEDI. The dark cloak he wears would remain and become iconic, but the majority of the front layer of the costume, which is very Obi-Wan like, would be replaced with a much darker, deliberately more Darth Vader-ish ensemble, on the instructions of George Lucas, by the time of the movies filming in London in January 1982.
