I still don't know why they cut that scene where the rebels are rescued by Ted Nugent in a pickup truck.

They must have added the titles a few years later (post 1985) if they were done on an Amiga.

The Gamorrean suit looks deadly in that sun. To be more true to the series, a special edition should be re-released with a voiceover, blaster effects, and a CG Lucas.

and a CG Lucas.

Just put a beard and some wavy silver hair on the Jabba model and you're done.

Wow. Never realized what a lazy shit that R2D2 unit was.

That set seems larger to me than it comes off on screen.

At this point in filming, who knew that the film was titled "Return of the Jedi"? From what I understand, it was codenamed "Blue Harvest", and Lucas thought (at one point, at least) that it would be titled "Revenge of the Jedi".

The original teaser trailer for the film carried the name Revenge of the Jedi,[18] and a teaser poster created by Drew Struzan containing this title has since become a rare collector's item. However, a few weeks before the film's premiere, Lucas changed the title, saying "revenge" could not be used, as it is not a Jedi concept.

As seen on Storage Wars.

R2 served drinks and tossed Luke a saber. What else did you want? Arm-mounted jetpacks?
