The “Lost” Empire Strikes Back Documentary by Michel Parbot on YouTube

Thanks from our friends at for sharing this information about the lost Making of The Empire Strikes Back which is currently on YouTube; translation….

It’s a bit of a bomb that just fell on the net, no more or less!

The always very well informed Patrice Girod has found us an online version of the documentary unpublished and at least still not found today of the documentary of French Michel Parbot during the shooting of the Empire counterattack. We had presented exclusively this documentary, which we had restored from a source of which we silence the name out of respect for confidentiality, at the Star Wars Celebration Europe 2 in Essen and which we had detailed in this article.

It is neither more nor less than Adywan (yes the one who reproduced the classic trilogy by bringing an innumerable batch of modifications to make it even more faithful than the originals of George Lucas) that is the origin of this bomb that will make date!

Apparently Adywan has recovered a DVD from an NTSC scan from a Frenchman who won an auction a reel copy of the documentary…

To tell you the truth, it is a veil that rises on the most mysterious documentary of the last forty years. Knowing that this documentary was snatched at gold price of word of mouth, I advise you to watch this fabulous testimony of the filming of this masterpiece of the Saga…

Happy viewing!
