RETURNING TO JEDI
“As one of the people inside Jabba at the time (I’m the one in the yellow sweater) I can only say how vividly this documentary brings back memories – more so than the ‘official’ making-of movies.

For all the wonderful atmosphere in the finished film, this captures the ‘feel’ of being backstage, and on the set, better than anything I know.” – Toby Philpott, Jabba the Hutt Puppeteer.
