The "Lost" Empire Strikes Back Documentary by Michel Parbot

In 1980, French filmmaker Michel Parbot made an hour-long TV documentary on the filming of the second Star Wars movie. The Making of 'The Empire Strikes Back' was lost for many years (although short clips were passed around), but apparently Adywan, a French Star Wars fan, found a film copy somewhere, and it is now available for the first time in its entirety on YouTube. Enjoy behind-the-scenes footage of fight choreography, an extended look at the struggles of filming on Hoth (Norway), learn how special effects were done before CGI, and hear stories from the professionals involved in the production.
