No matter how many Star Wars books I've flipped through, I'm always coming across new-to-me behind the scenes photos. They seem to come from a never-ending fountain that bubbles with memories from the galaxy far, far away. Archives are wonderful like that. I can't think of a treasure chest I'd like to explore more. I hope the making of the new sequel trilogy is documented to the very last detail so that 30 years from now we'll still be seeing images we haven't seen before.
I spotted a huge batch of photos from the sets of the original trilogy recently on Twitter, and they brightened my day. I bet they'll have the same effect on you.
This pic of Irvin Kershner astride a tauntaun is the definition of delightful:
And I find all of these photos from The Empire Strikes Back to be completely charming.
