78 Rare Star Wars Behind the Scenes Photos

The best  behind-the-scenes photos from all Star Wars movies, including the original trilogy, the prequels (there are only like two pictures from the prequels, don’t worry) and even some leaked Star Wars Episode VII BTS pictures that J.J. Abrams doesn’t really want on the Internet, but that all of you deserve to see because there are puppets!

This list includes Star Wars BTS pictures of the original R2D2 concept art, the entire cast flirting with Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), photos of Yoda before he was finished, the building of the actual, on-set Millennium Falcon and, of course, that giant elephant that they dressed up as a Bantha.
