ESB30: Space Slug Reviewed Posted By TFN on March 26, 2010
" Empire Chronicles"
series over on
rolls on with the
latest archived article from Pete Vilmur
that provides a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the Space Slug.
The intro to the article is provided below, and then click
for the full read.
space slug, whose exterior we see for all of a few seconds in The Empire Strikes Back, is probably one of the most memorable life forms introduced in the saga's first sequel, trumped only by the surprise revelation of a little green Jedi Master. The entire asteroid-crater-turned-space-worm scene actually came together with just a few props and an improvised set, enhanced with some select sound effects, editing, and musical score. When combined, the sequence provides a necessary reprieve from the driving action of the asteroid chase, and a rare opportunity for Han and the Princess to share a romantic moment in the Falcon's hold. We've scoured three decade's worth of interviews and behind-the-scenes discussions to put together a handful of passages about the space slug sequence, which George Lucas once confessed "worked better on the page than how it finally turned out." It's likely many fans would respectfully disagree."
