down Summary
The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is a lavish fully illustrated book that will be a must-have for fans of the Star Wars movies and lovers of cinema in general.

This is the definitive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the final film in the original Star Wars trilogy. The author of The Making of Star Wars and The Making of the Empire Strikes Back, J. W. Rinzler uses his unprecedented access to the Lucasfilm Archives and its trove of never-before-published photos, design sketches, paintings, production notes, factoids, anecdotes, and script drafts to take the reader from concept art and creature design to on-set photography and ILM’s visual effects work. This third behind-the-scenes adventure is as entertaining and enthralling as his previous two books, and the movie itself.

Story Locale: Numerous locations in California including Death Valley National Park and Redwood National Park as well as locations in Yuma, AZ and Elstree Studios in England

Praise for The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

“Just like Rinzler’s 2010 volume about Empire Strikes Back, The Making of Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi is an indispensible volume that will add tons of insight to your appreciation of George Lucas’ Original Trilogy. Rinzler has gone through masses of production documents at Lucasfilm and interviewed tons of people, and come up with a portrait of Lucas struggling to find a fitting ending to his ambitious, heroic saga.”io9
