Reportedly, when Steven Spielberg was unavailable to direct this movie due to his membership of the Director's Guild, he suggested Dutch director Paul Verhoeven to his friend, executive producer George Lucas, as a potential director. Spielberg had been impressed by Verhoeven's Dutch movies, especially his war epic Soldaat van Oranje (1977), and knew that Verhoeven was searching for an American project. However, when Spielberg saw Verhoeven's latest movie, the sexually explicit Spetters (1980), he decided to withdraw his recommendation. See more »

In at least one earlier video release of the movie, Lando inexplicably says "now," right before saying "Come on, Han, old buddy. Don't let me down." The Special Edition restores the rest of the scene and shows that Lando says "We're sure in the middle of it now." The restored dialogue with Lando mentioned above is also present in full on the CBS/Fox 1990 U.S Widescreen Laserdisc, which is a re-issue of the 1986 Japanese Widescreen Laserdisc. See more »
Easily my least favorite of the first three films. WAY too much cutesy-poo, some below-par special effects, and the *worst* extras in the business -- remember the guy who says "You Rebel Scum?" How about 87 different Imperials saying "Freeze! -- Don't move!" at different points? What is this, a bad 70's cop show?
I have heard rumors that Lucas originally planned to have Endor populated by Wookies, which would have been *far* more interesting than those obnoxious little Ewoks, who simply stretched my credulity past the breaking point. I mean, the Storm Troopers have *helmets* on -- yet a 3-foot teddy bear with a stick can take one down with a couple of ineffectual whacks to the head? Please...
