BEHIND THE SCENES IMAGE: TO BUILD A UNIVERSE...

Lucas at Lee Studios in late 1975 with one of the early Roger Christian initiated/co-built test Artoo shells, made from wood.

The UK's DAILY MAIL newspaper website has a fascinating article which presents rare behind the scenes documents linked to the making of the original STAR WARS from 1975 to early 1976 that are about to be going under the auction hammer. It's an intriguing look back at the detail and hard work that would be undertaken by the likes of Lucas, Gary Kurtz, John's Barry and Stears to make the film a reality, especially linked to the movie's Tunisian location filming.

Check out the feature here and it's huge variety of scanned pages: A Datsun, an ostrich and anaesthetised rats: The humble beginnings of the special effects behind Star Wars are revealed in production notes up for auction | Mail Online
