Update: Today is a sort of unofficial holiday for Star Wars fans. In that spirit, here are some rare photographs from the production of the original trilogy that we published a little while back. And May the Fourth be with you...
April 23 - It was 35 years ago today that George Lucas and his team wrapped up production on the original 'Star Wars' film (Episode IV: A New Hope). A little more than one month later, the film that left audiences with dreams of visiting Tatooine someday was released.
The rare photos below, which offer a glimpse into the sets and effects behind the Star Wars universe, may either help you appreciate the saga more or shatter the illusion of a galaxy far, far away. But for anyone who's seen the films, they offer a new context for familiar images and characters.
Some of the candid photos below capture the funny, serious and truly unique experiences on set. If you want more, head over here or here and May The Force Be With You.
