Ever wonder how they ever managed to make a movie like Star Wars? Well, bickering droid duo C-3PO and R2-D2 host this tour of the mind of creator George Lucas and what inspired him to make the movie. Even interviewed are the cast and crew, even features scenes of when C-3PO, R2-D2, and Darth Vader planted their footprints (or in R2's case, tread-prints) into cement. Also discussed is Star Wars mania, how fans loved the movie, collected the merchandise and danced the disco music. Also shown are behind-the-scenes looks at the movie, as well as how difficult each effect was in doing since they didn't have the convenience of computer animation back then.Written by

When this first aired, I could not even stand on my own. By the time I could read, Jedi hit the streets and naturally, I had to go see it. I cannot remember exactly if I saw this Making of before or after that time, but having purchased it recently, I can safely say that if you don't get it, there is no problem: almost of all its coverage already appears on the extra disc of the new DVD release. If you are a completist or really, really want to see what was on the minds of everyone involved in it, or really, really want to see Carrie Fisher (and the rest) in their usual, everyday garments commenting (with no damaging comments), or really, really want to have every Tony Daniels performance, then this one is for you.
Having bought the Spanish dubbed copy (with the awful, original 1978 dubbing!), I can only think it must be a very different experience in its original form. But I will continue to watch it every once in a while, that's for sure.
