1980’s The Empire Strikes Back is not only the best Star Wars film ever made, but it’s also one the the all-time great movies. It’s flawless. Irvin Kershner’s sequel has stunning visuals and special effects, nuanced performances, a wonderful script and first rate musical score.
Here’s a wonderful behind-the-scenes photograph of Harrison Ford chilling and having a great old time on the Millennium Falcon set, obviously taken when he was filming the ‘fixing the hyperdrive’ scenes.
Punch it, Chewie!
Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back grossed almost $293 million at the U.S. box office and more than $538 million since its release in 1980.
