CLASSIC DESIGN WEEK. PIC TWO - HOTH REBEL HANGAR
Out in the UK this week is the long-awaited, new nice price edition of the lavish and informative STAR WARS: BLUEPRINTS hardcover book by J.W. Rinzler, available from TITAN BOOKS. In celebration of the must-have title, this week we're having a week-long celebration of some of the six film's classic production designs.
Day Two is a look at the then brand new STAR WARS Stage at Elstree, specially built for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK filming in 1979, supervised by new Production Designer, yet an already experienced hand to STAR WARS- Norman Reynolds. It would first house the magnificent and huge Rebel Hangar, home to the in-repair Millennium Falcon, several specially built prop X-wing fighters and also showcasing the ground to air vehicles that were the Snowspeeders. Finally, in the bottom right corner of the set, almost complete for Summer photography, is a tarpaulin covered Rebel Tank, previously used on location filming in Finse, Norway.
