100 Things You Didn’t Know About The Empire Strikes Back

This “article” is chock-full of awesome. I don’t even know how to pick one or two blurbs, to entice you, as they are all awesome.

The scene in which a swamp creature grabs R2-D2 was filmed in George Lucas’ unfinished swimming pool.

While the uninitiated may disagree, The Empire Strikes Back did not introduce everyone’s favorite bounty hunter, Boba Fett, to the mainstream masses. The character actually appeared two years prior, albeit in an animated form, in the much-maligned Star Wars Holiday Special.

During the filming of the Bacta Tank sequence, where Luke is being treated for his post-wampa injuries, a massive light above the tank cracked, sending huge pieces of glass stabbing down into the water – moments before Mark Hamill was set to enter the tank for filming.
