It's Return of the Jedi's 30th birthday today, and the Internet is celebrating accordingly. Here are a few links to Episode VI-themed articles.
Wired magazine tells you thirty things you may not know about the sixth film in the saga. I doubt many of our readers will find all of them surprising, but it's worth a look just in case.
Businessweek (via Club Jade) notes that Episode VI "grossed $399 million in the United States alone, making it the 15th-most-successful movie of all time. It did better at the box office than The Empire Strikes Back, its gloomier predecessor."
Christian Blauvelt at Hollywood.com emailed us to share five exclusive photos from J.W. Rinzler's upcoming book The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
MTV interviewed me and several other fans for a series of posts about the Ewoks. The first post in the series, "'Star Wars' Fans Still Love To Hate Ewoks 30 Years Later," is online now. (For the record, I don't hate the Ewoks at all.)
The Official Star Wars Blog posted an interview with visual effects legend Denis Muren, who worked on Episode VI and many other projects.
