It's a great series but has anyone else noticed that a lot of the footage of the Original Star Wars films (I am not talking the behind the scenes footage) appears not the remastered Lucas endorsed editions but actual original old footage, some shots look real sharp like they arent taken from archive footage freely available. What source did the Kasdan tap into? Any other documentaries or behind the scenes, especially made by Disney or Lucasfilm, you'll find that the movie footage they use is the Lucas approved special editions even if they are talking about the original making of, with the history being washed over, so this is actually a big deal that Kasdan managed to showcase the original OT footage so freely here.

At first I was afraid that it was going to be like the extras on recent BluRay movies: people complimenting each other. I was wrong and this documentary by Kasdan capture the magic behind Industrial Light and Magic. It describes the story of the company founded by George Lucas with the stories of the people that worked and still work there.

It also shows the difficulties and challenges of this evolving industry. Phil Tippet's interview was the one that stuck with me, because of his depression and fear of being replaced by digital technology.

It is a nice documentary to understand the evolution of visual and special effects. A lot of familiar faces if you are a fan of LucasFilm productions. Lucas' contribution was fundamental and I appreciate even more his ability to select the right people for the job.

@FinFan , I hope you'll give this a chance.
