Un bozzetto per The Empire Strikes Back

E' uscito The Making Of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back di J.W. Rinzler che racconta i retroscena del terzo capitolo della trilogia originale di Guerre Stellari.

Bozzetti, concept e script originali che avrebbe potuto cambiare in modo radicale la saga per come la conosciamo.

The Making Of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back by J.W. Rinzler comes out today, and it's not just essential for fans of the classic film. It's also a must-read for anybody who's interested in the creative process, because it goes into excruciating detail, on a day-to-day basis, on the troubled genesis of an amazing film. You get inside the heads of everybody involved with it, and you see how much pain went into every frame of this movie. In particular, there's a 17-page section in which you get a transcript of director Irwin Kerschner and the actors - especially Harrison Ford - agonize over every second of the crucial carbonite freezing chamber scene, trying to get as much emotional truth and reality out of it as possible. This was on set, after the screenplay had already been revised several times, and every moment of that sequence gets rehashed and debated until it's (arguably) perfect.
