The Making of Star Wars — eBook Clip


added: Mon, Oct 21st '13

It wouldn't be "Star Wars" without a double-dip. Starting tomorrow, you'll be able to purchase an enhanced eBook edition of the 2007 "The Making of Star Wars" book, containing some special added features and a new forward by director Peter Jackson. Not only will you be able to view the updated advanced book (via your favorite tablet or reader) but for the first time ever, you can view 26 minutes of rare, authorized behind-the-scenes clips from George Lucas's classic sci-fi film.

Speaking of which, released today is an outtake sneak-peek clip from "A New Hope," in which the crew are filming a scene of our heroes making their daring escape from the Death Star, where a fallen stunt man has a faulty squib caught on fire -- and after they cut, stunt coordinator Peter Diamond rushes to his aid. Check it out, above.
