Description

  • The Making of Star Wars Return of the Jedi
  • Just as Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi completed the most successful cinematic trilogy of its generation,
    perhaps of all time, this splendid thirtieth-anniversary tribute completes New York Times bestselling author J. W.
    Rinzler’s trio of fascinating behind-the-scenes books celebrating George Lucas’s classic films.

    Once again, the author’s unprecedented access to the formidable Lucasfilm Archives has yielded a mother lode of
    extremely informative, vastly entertaining, and often unexpected stories, anecdotes, recollections, and revelations
    straight from the closely guarded set of a big-screen blockbuster in the making. Brimming with previously unpublished
    photos, production artwork, script excerpts, exclusive intel, vintage on-set interviews, and present-day commentary, The
    Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi chronicles “how George Lucas and his crew of extroverted artists, misfits, and
    expert craftspeople roused themselves to great heights for a third time” to create the next unforgettable chapter in one
    of the most beloved sagas of all time. Get up close to the action and feel like a studio insider as

    • creator George Lucas, Oscar-nominated screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, and director Richard Marquand huddle in a script
    conference to debate the destinies of iconic Star Wars characters, as well as plot twists and turns for the epic final
    showdown between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire
    • artists and craftspeople at the groundbreaking Industrial Light & Magic facility top their own revolutionary
    innovations—despite the infamous Black Friday—with boundary-pushing new analog visual effects
    • a crack team of sculptors, puppeteers, actors, and “monster-makers” bring Jabba the Hutt and his cohorts to
    startling, slobbering life from the inside out
    • a Who’s Who of heavyweight directors—from such films as Superman, Gremlins, Halloween, Dune, Scanners, and Time
    Bandits—are considered for the coveted job of bringing a new Star Wars adventure to the silver screen
    • actors and crew race to the finish line at Elstree Studios, in a fiery desert, and beneath the trees of a dense
    redwood forest—before money runs out—to answer the questions that audiences had waited three years to find out: Is Darth
    Vader really Luke’s father, who is the “other”—and who or what is the Emperor?

    Star Wars’ stars from both sides of the camera—including Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels,
    Peter Mayhew, David Prowse, Alec Guinness, director Richard Marquand, producer Howard Kazanjian, Ralph McQuarrie, Joe
    Johnston, Dennis Muren, Phil Tippett, and mastermind George Lucas—weigh in with candid insights on everything from
    technical challenges, character design, Ewoks, the Empire’s galactic city planet, and the ultimate challenge of bringing
    the phenomenal space fantasy to a dramatic close. The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi gives a spectacular
    subject its just due, with more than five hundred images and many, many new interviews.

    Praise for The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

    “Just like Rinzler’s 2010 volume about Empire Strikes Back, The Making of Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi is an
    indispensible volume that will add tons of insight to your appreciation of George Lucas’ Original Trilogy. Rinzler has
    gone through masses of production documents at Lucasfilm and interviewed tons of people, and come up with a portrait of
    Lucas struggling to find a fitting ending to his ambitious, heroic saga.”—io9
