Ever wonder how they ever managed to make a movie like Star Wars? Well, bickering droid duo C-3PO and R2-D2 host this tour of the mind of creator George Lucas and what inspired him to make the movie. Even interviewed are the cast and crew, even features scenes of when C-3PO, R2-D2, and Darth Vader planted their footprints (or in R2's case, tread-prints) into cement. Also discussed is Star Wars mania, how fans loved the movie, collected the merchandise and danced the disco music. Also shown are behind-the-scenes looks at the movie, as well as how difficult each effect was in doing since they didn't have the convenience of computer animation back then.Written by

This special was the first Star Wars material officially released to the growing home video market in 1979 by Magnetic Video Corporation. A later issue on the same label also features a trailer for "The Empire Strikes Back" (1980). See more »
At about 22:23 minutes, Chewbacca can be seen on the TV monitor, and R2-D2 beeping. C-3PO asks "what did he say?", even when he is fluent in over six million forms of communication. See more »
R2-D2 was credited as himself rather than being listed as being portrayed by Kenny Baker who really did portray him in this documentary. See more »
A video edition, released by Fox Video in 1995 as part of a mail-in offer with Kellogg's Cereals, replaces William Conrad's voice over narration with Don LaFontaine. See more »
While there is some behind the scenes stuff, this is basically just an explanation of the plot. A narrator just explains the unspoken things in the movie. This is great for someone who doesn't understand the movie, boring for those who do.
