From Blastr, here are 10 never before seen images from the set of “Return of the Jedi” circa 1982. The pictures were taken by a group of Star Wars fans who stumbled upon the Jedi set. Here’s a brief description of what took place:
In the spring of 1982, a fella named Mike Davis gathered a bunch of friends and decided to investigate a chunk of southern California desert called Buttercup Valley, where they’d heard that a new sci-fi film called Blue Harvest: Horror Beyond Imagination was filming.
When they got there, they discovered Jabba the Hutt’s pleasure barge, R2-D2 without his lid on and Princess Leia relaxing in the sun. Not a bad day for a bunch of fans and their pre-digital cameras.
