Looking through the ART OF STAR WARS book the other day, I came across something I hadn’t noticed before. Legendary costume designer
Certain creatures from Mollo’s drawing didn’t make the final film, or were adapted differently to the way they finally looked, but it would be logical to think that the human Cantina band made it into the UK filming-every Cantina has a band or music of some kind playing, right?-before being later replaced with their now iconic alien counter-parts-the move made by Lucas, perhaps because the originals looked too human, or the footage just didn’t work (I’ve previously looked at the black and white footage of the Cantina scene and didn’t see any of them (has anyone else out there got sharper eyes than me?)).
Do any pictures/footage exist of the Human band? Perhaps on-set photographer J
If anyone knows more about this intriguing new addition to the world of STAR WARS mysteries, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you and solve this…
