BEHIND THE SCENES: THE FALCON'S NEW DESTINATION


Within the Rebel Hangar base interior now disassembled on the then new STAR WARS STAGE at Elstree Studios in July 1979, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK director Irvin Kershner, atop a ladder, checks the available shooting angles, and takes camera reference shots, showing the specially built Millennium Falcon prop on the in-construction landing pad at Bespin (note Production Designer Norman Reynolds occupied with work below Kershner), as the movie's arduous shooting nears its final third.

This image is part of a BBC WALES tribute to STAR WARS 35th Anniversary, and the connections that this part of Great Britain had with the Classic Trilogy film-making during the eighties. Head over to the link here for more: BBC News - In pictures: the secret links between Star Wars and Wales

Thanks to the JEDI NEWS website for the heads up on this.
