To create the Wampa's roar, sound effects artist Randy Thom recorded the noises made by an elephant in the Oakland Zoo.

Echo Three to Echo Seven. Han, old buddy, do you read me?
Loud and clear, kid. What's up?
Well, I finished my circle. I don't pick up any life readings.
There isn't enough life on this ice cube to fill a space cruiser. Sensors are placed. I'm going back.

In the original version, there is an exterior shot of Cloud City before cutting inside to the room where Han and Leia are waiting. The exterior shot shows Leia and a matte painting of the building they are in. The matte painting makes the building appear to have two stories, even though, from the inside, the room has a skylight window. For the Special Edition, the exterior is reduced to one story, to match the interior shot. See more »
So much amazing action and beautiful cinematography makes for such an enlightening experience! In The Empire Strikes Back you know who everyone is which is great plus Yoda is introduced! I love this movie the music is soothing, there's romance, more of Darth Vader, and introduces Emperor Palpatine what more can you ask for? A lot to relish and get excited about; it's such a classic gem.
