Readers of a certain vintage will remember the "Pop-Up Videos" of the late 1990s. They were regular music videos with various facts about the songs and artists that popped up on screen as the video played. It was horribly cheesy and decidedly 1990s. Now imagine that, but without the cheesiness, and it's Star Wars, with added deleted and alternate takes, behind the scenes shots and an absolutely incredible custom commentary track from everyone involved in making the film. How the editor managed to assemble all these sources and blend them in so seamlessly is beyond me. Highly recommended for anyone looking for insight into how Star Wars was made. Looking forward to the other 2 installments.

This has got to be the most exhaustive documentary on Star Wars I've ever seen. I don't know where or how Jambe got most of his behind-the-scenes footage, but this is a definite watch for any Star Wars fan, film student, or anyone just interested in the film making process.

Most interesting for me was seeing some of the candid behind-the-scenes footage with the actors goofing off, as well as learning more about how the story was revised throughout production. There are also little hidden gems pointing out things you've probably missed when watching Star Wars such as "94" actually on the hanger bays wall.

Give this documentary a watch. You won't regret it.

I finally sat down to watch this, and my Jambe Star Wars Documentary Experience (TM) is finally complete. If you've seen Building Empire and/or Returning to Jedi, there's nothing new here. By which I mean it's the same fantastic, exhaustive mix of audio commentary, text commentary, deleted scenes, alternate takes, storyboards, comics, behind-the-scenes clips, and pretty-much-anything-else-you-can-think-of that we've come to expect from Jambe. Brilliant work!

Ten thumbs up out of ten.
