This movie originally included a sandstorm scene that occurred after Han's rescue. It was cut because it was unnecessary, and was hectic to shoot, but the idea for the scene was used in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999). See more »
When Luke and his party are dropped from the Ewoks' net they shortly thereafter have their weapons taken away by the Ewoks. If you look closely you can see the actor's very human fingers sticking through the glove of the Ewok that takes away Han's blaster. See more »

In the DVD version, the Rancor sequence now has some subtle shadows added to mask the matte lines, as well as being re-composited to blend more smoothly with the live-action elements of Mark Hamill. See more »
Up until the sixth and last episode of the Star Wars saga, which finally ended in 2005, I had always looked at this 1983 entry as my favorite film of the long-running series. The varied action scenes and really different characters (Jabba The Hut, furry woodland creatures, etc.) made this a particularly appealing movie.
None of the action ever focused too long in one spot, either. The last half hour exemplifies this the most as the scene switches every few minutes from the woods to the battle among space ships to the individual laser-duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.
Another nice characteristic this film had that the two previous did not was the absence of in-fighting between two of the stars. Gone was the incessant bickering between Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. Finally, everyone was on the same page! It was nice to see.
In the end, this was simply a wonderful adventure tale, more than anything else.
