BEHIND THE SCENES IMAGE: HERE BE DRAGONS!


On the grimy swamp set of Dagobah at London's Elstree Studios in the summer of 1979, near Luke Skywalker's buried X-wing fighter, a wet-suit clad technician tends to the prop of the underwater based Dragonsnake creature that promptly devours Artoo Detoo. The original UK filmed effect shot of the beast's first appearance, which looks like it had big scales, was ultimately deemed unusable and a replacement shot was filmed in the US months later-within George Lucas's house pool no less!
