Friday Favorites #47 (Star Wars)

May 03, 2013

Tomorrow is May the 4th, as in May the Forth Be With You, as in Star Wars Day! So this week’s Friday Favorites is being dedicated to my all time favorite fandom.

There are a bunch of awesome photos from behind the scenes of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi going around the web lately. There for a series of books by J.W. Rinzler. Here are a few of my favorites, but you see tons more here and here.

  1. May the Fourth be with you!!! And that picture of Leia with the Stormtroopers just bashes any image I have of them being bad guys. Too cute.
