SYNOPSIS
The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi takes you behind the scenes and on location with the third film in the great Star Wars saga.

From January 11, 1982, when principal photography began on Jedi, through May 25, 1983, the premiere of the film the world was waiting for—all the excitement, the suspense, the adventure, the sense of accomplishment that go into making a multimillion-dollar film epic into an enormous world-wide triumph are captured here in exciting detail:

•Filming on location among the giant California Redwoods and on the shimmering sands of the Arizona desert...
•Constructing such wonders as Jabba's Throne Room, the new Death Star, the magnificent Sail barge...
•Creating and bringing to life all the extraordinary new creatures: Jabba the Hutt, Salacious Crumb, Sy Snootles, Hermi Odle, the Sarlacc—and the unforgettable Ewoks...
•Candid interviews with the actors who play all your old favorites: Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, R2-D2, C-3PO and, of course, Yoda...
•Conversations with the producer, director, and special-effects wizards...
•A new interview with George Lucas, the man behind the creation of the Star Wars universe...
