An uncredited Marcia Lucas edited the split-screen scenes for the 1966 sequence (many of which were incorporated to cover up the story defects). George Lucas, also uncredited, edited the Vietnam scenes for the 1965 sequence, making footage of just two helicopters seem like a dozen. See more »

Only reason I saw or even heard of this film is that it was included as a double-feature on the DVD with the first. Perfectly awful film fails miserably at recreating the sense of nostalgia of the first, despite some of the same cast returning. The film is poorly directed in a heavy-handed way, using the "multi-screen" approach(different scenes being shown occurring at the same time) which is distracting and pretentious.
Story tries to clarify plot points alluded to by the "fates" of those characters shown over the ending credits, but film feels utterly pointless, and new story elements(with Ron Howard and Cindy Williams) are really horrendous, so mundane and dispiriting.
Even George Lucas admitted he didn't know why he allowed it to be made!
