Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
Our Happy 30th Birthday Empire Strikes Back BTS series keeps on truckin with this installment giving us a little glimpse at the moment the man behind the mask was hinted at for the first time in the Star Wars series. I remember the glimpse of the pale white, scarred bald head really spurned my imagination as a kid. It made me thirst to find out more about the man who was Vader… I guess I should have been careful what I wished for.
I’ve always loved this moment, which was an early indicator that Empire was a cut above Star Wars. The whole movie adds to the mythology of the first, improving the richness of the universe and showing that the Rebels have a fight on their hands that is all but impossible. It’s not going to be an easy victory, there are going to be losses… the good guys aren’t always going to win.
Yep, Empire sure is badass. What else is new?
Here’s the pic! Enjoy!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Oh, and to see that scene put to comedic effect…
