A Gallery of Rare Empire Strikes Back Shots

(click to enlarge)

No that’s not photoshop, this is a real look at the behind-the-scenes filming of The Empire Strikes Back that appears in a new issue of Vanity Fair.

In addition to Luke not having to fall as far as we thought, there are Wompas on stilts, Boba Fett’s armor in pieces and the filming of the opening credits. They really are a cool bunch of photos, most of which I’d never seen before, and I thought I’d seen all this stuff at this point. How are new images from a film made forty years ago still coming out what seems like every other month?

Hit the jump and check out the rest of the gallery:
