STAR WARS EPISODE V:
THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
The shots where Luke uses the force to retrieve his lightsaber
from a distance were achieved by having Mark Hamill throw the
lightsaber away and then running the film in reverse
Mark Hamill had to bang his head 16 times on the ceiling
of Yoda' s hut before the director was satisfied
In an early outtake, when Vader entered the Hoth base
he tripped over a cable and fell down
During the filming of the Battle of Hoth, the Echo Base troops were
actually Norwegian skiers. In exchange for participation
in the film, Lucasfilm made a donation to the Norwegian Red Cross
George Lucas was so impressed by Frank Oz' s performance as Yoda that
he spent thousands of dollars on an advertising campaign to try and get him
an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Lucas' s campaign ultimately
failed because it was felt that a puppeteer wasn' t an actor
With the exception of being sucked out of a Cloud

of the Clone Wars, born into a family who reproduced solely by cloning.
Originally, his name was "Lando Kadar"
George Lucas decided that a battle on an ice planet was necessary because

crews would have to work much harder, and the effects would be more impressive
The scenes where is submerged in the mud pool were shot in
George Lucas' unfinished swimming pool. Most of the crew were hidden
under the water and the entire sequence was shot by George Lucas himself
When shooting on location in Norway, a snow storm hit the hotel where
the cast and crew were staying. This halted filming, but director Irvin Kershner
thought these weather conditions were an excellent opportunity to film the scene
where Luke wanders through the snow after escaping the Wampa cave.
He did this by sending Mark Hamill outside into the cold, while he and
the cameraman stayed and filmed inside the hotel' s front hall
The concept design for Cloud City was originally created for
Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope as a floating Imperial prison
but was never used. The design was recycled for use in this film
