'STAR WARS' AT 40: MORE DROID FOOTAGE REQUIRED!

Grant McCune and ILM colleagues prepare Artoo near a hastily built Rebel base control console for a needed insert scene for STAR WARS.

With STAR WARS' 1976 principal photography at Elstree having been cut several weeks short by nervous money conscious execs at FOX, later scenes needing to be completed for the movie as it was in its final editing shaping were handled either in a small downtown Los Angeles studio (as in extra Cantina creature scenes) or at ILM, as seen here, with insert scenes shot requiring several of the R2-D2 shell's, out of UK storage and soon dispatched States-side.

Artoo is plugged in by a Rebel technician, in this ILM filmed insert scene.

Joe Johnston makes an adjustment to the three-legged Artoo.

An extra shot of R2's restraining bolt being added by a Jawa was filmed.
