STAR WARS EPISODE VI:
RETURN OF THE JEDI
Jabba' s sail barge was filmed in Yuma, Arizona. The film crew had problems
avoiding the many dune buggy enthusiasts in the area. To preserve secrecy
the producers claimed to be making a horror film called Blue Harvest
and even had made up for the crew

Harrison Ford suggested that Han Solo sacrifice his life to
save his friends, but George Lucas disagreed with him
as he wanted Han to play a heroic part at the end
According to Anthony Daniels, it only took him less

last two films were it took him two hours
The Jabba the Hutt puppet took Stuart Freeborn' s team three
months to build and cost , 000 to make and weighed
The shots for the speeder bike sequence were achieved by having
a camera operator walk through the forest at normal speed with a camera filming
at one frame per second. When the footage was played back at twenty four frames
per second, it gave the appearance of flying through the forest at high speeds
Admiral Ackbar' s famous line 'ts a trap!' was originally scripted as 'It' s a trick!'.
The line was changed in underproduction after a negative test screening
The film originally included a sandstorm scene that occurred after Han' s rescue.
It was cut because it was unnecessary and was hectic to shoot, but the idea
for the scene was later used in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
Originally, Yoda was not in the film' s script. Yoda was added
when Lucas determined him best to properly confirm to Luke
as to whether Vader was his father or not

That sandstorm thing is really convenient because Episode 1 in its entirety is unnessessary.

The reason they came up with "Blue Harvest" was because they were getting ripped off when renting shooting locations. Everyone knew how successful the franchise had been, so they were price gouging. They came up with "Blue Harvest" because it sounded like a low budget turd nobody had ever heard of, so they quit getting ripped off.

Look up "Empire of Dreams" on youtube and watch it.

Where did you here that? I have never ever heard that. I have heard to avoid people crashing the set to see the filming they called it blue harvest. Either you made up that fact or found it somewhere.

"When shooting Jedi in the United States we called the film Blue Harvest. Camera slates, invoices, hotel reservations, call sheets, production reports, and crew hats and T-shirts all read Blue Harvest. So when a visitor would ask, 'what are you shooting' and we said Blue Harvest, they went on their way. Can you imagine what would have happened if we had said, 'We're shooting the next film in the Star Wars trilogy'?""

I love how the writing and producing of star wars was a total train wreck, and they still came out with some amazing films.
