'STAR WARS' AT 40: PREPARING THE POD!


Out in Tunisia in late March 1976, the droids' escape pod (which looks very similar, if smaller, to one of the pod vehicles seen in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey) is positioned in one of the sand dunes by the original Star Wars primary UK practical special effects supervisor John Stears (bearded) and an unknown colleague, soon dirtied up with crash impact sand and other prop dressings, even if the end results are barely noticeable on screen during the finished film.
