Rare Star Wars set photos

From cinemablend, You’d think by now we’d have all seen everything there is to see when it comes to Lucas’s original Star Wars movies, but these photos are new, to me at least. A site called Coolthings has posted a collection of what it claims are rare, behind the scenes photos from the sets of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.

The pics are whimsical and revealing. You’ll see a stormtrooper on the back of a non-CGI dewback, but you’ll also see the cast just sort of hanging out and clowning around. Carrie Fisher in particular, always seems to be having a good time. My favorite picture is the one you’ll see first below, of Fisher just hanging out taking a break with her blaster.

Those are great! I love how the Stormtroopers all have such long hair.

And of course, one glimpse and the Cantina song is stuck in my head.

The 'Troopers with the dewback is definitely the favorite.

Whatever the Empire's equivalent of Guns & Ammo Magazine is, THIS would be the cover that month. (Subtitle: "Sand-Blasting on Tatooine!")

And I love the helmets-off look. It's what I've always pictured happening in the Death Star Cafeteria. (Eddie Izzard reference!)
