Watch the never before seen documentary, The Making of The Empire Strikes Back
Finding any sort of new STAR WARS discoveries always adds a plus to any day. While you might think that everything that's there to be found has been unearthed, you might be pleased to find that a documentary has been found.
A Dutch television documentary titled, THE MAKING OF THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK was posted on a site called OpenCulture.com today. The quality is not the best, and it isn't complete, but it is cool to say the least. Michel Parbot, French reporter and cameraman was the one who filmed the doc. STAR WARS collectibles site, Mintinbox.net had the most details on the project:
September 22nd, 1980 on FOX Television: the Americans were able to discover a documentary named SPFX: The Empire Strikes Back, with a voice-over and it was dedicated to the special effects of the Empire Strikes Back, though it didnt contain that many interviews. On IMDb, it is referenced here and Michel Parbot is credited as the cameraman in the part Camera and Electrical Department. This documentary can be watched today, as it is part of the Sagas Extras on the Blu-Ray discs .Contrary to the SPFX documentary, [the "Making Of"] is especially focusing on interviews (actors, technicians, director and producer). Even George Lucas appears time to time and very briefly. The Making of documentary is in four parts: Introduction, Norway, Characters, Special Effects.
Check out the doc below, and don't worry, it switches to English at the :45 second point.
