Editorial Reviews

A comprehensive look at how George Lucas started out, the financial difficulties he had getting the movies made and how the technology he created literally changed the movie industry. It also has some great footage of the original screentests with the actors.

Format: VHS Tape
FROM STAR WARS TO JEDI: THE MAKING OF A SAGA is exactly what the title implies, a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process that brought us the original trilogy of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Many fascinating facts are revealed. Did you know that Jaba the Hut cost over $100,000 to make and most likely is the biggest puppet in movie history? Two men were required to be inside the puppet to operate Jaba. Did you know that the Ewoks were modelled after Chewbaca, but Lucas went to the opposite extremes in their appearances? Instead of very tall, he made them very short. Instead of long fur, he gave them short hair. Further insight into the story of the saga is revealed, and never-before-seen out-takes of actors are shown. Mark Hamill ("Luke") narrates.

This video is 65 minutes in length, and it will be of interest to any fan of the original trilogy, and perhaps even fans of the new trilogy (Episodes I - III).

This documentary takes you thru the process of making the "Star Wars: A New Hope" (the first Star wars that came out) to "return of the Jedi" with all of the special effects. It's mnarrated by Mark Hamil, which gives it a very nice touch indeed. There are deleted scenes, explanations of the Ewok language and just all around cool stuff.
It would be great to watch this and compare the effects with the more recent "Star Wars" movies, just to see how far Industrial Light and Magic has come in the intervening years.
So while you're waiting for the third "Star Wars" movie to come out, do some retro watching and watch this video - it's still amazing to see how things were done even tho it's probably judged as "primitive" now.

having bought and seen "...the Making of a Saga", it is a necessary part of any Star Wars collection. The deleted scene of Jabba and his henchmen in Dockingbay 94, an extensive view of a behind-the-scenes look at Return of the Jedi and also at ILM, this video gives the viewer a rarely seen view of the magic that makes our favorite films come to life.

First of all, it's strange to read that it's a rare video, since I bought it 3 months ago for 25 dutch guilders (12 dollar) and it wasn't the last copy!!! Other videos I bought included The making of StarWars, SPFX: the empire strikes back and Classic Creatures: Return of the Jedi. All videos were 25 guilders. well, the video is awesome as you might expect from lucasfilm. especially the parts of jabba are very cool to watch. It's great to see that none of the effects were done in CG. These 4 videos are a must for all SW fans

Have you ever wondered how the ILM crew made ships explode? How about how Jabba was built (HINT: he cost half a million dollars!)? Now know all this and more with a wonderful look behind the scenes of Star Wars!! It is also narrated by Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker, of course) and he narrates well. You see some little bloopers and cut-outs (a going away party before filming Jabba's Barge!) and other little things. A great video, and a must for any Star Wars fan!!
