The Empire’s Back in Town: 10 things you didn’t know about The Empire Strikes Back

Luke Skywalker was originally going to be taught by Jedi Master Sarah Michelle Gellar, and other interesting factoids…

Coinciding with yesterday’s release of The Making Of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back by J.W. Rinzler, i09’s Charlie Jane Anders gives us “10 things you probably didn’t know about Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back“.

Most notably, Yoda’s original name was Buffy.

Also, I think I speak for us all when I say George Lucas really dropped the ball when he decided against the whole “Darth Vader had a castle” idea. Think of a jet-black 20-mile high space castle with laser turrets and rocket cavalry. And I don’t know about you, but I definitely think you could pull off calling it The Death Castle and still sound bad ass.
