Trivia

When preparing to work on the Special Edition, one of the Industrial Light & Magic employees was talking to a friend and mentioned in passing that they were extending the musical number in Jabba's palace. The friend happened to be the brother of Femi Taylor, the dancer that played Oola (the slave girl/dancer who is fed to the Rancor) and suggested that they get in contact with her, as she was in even better shape than she was when they originally shot the scene. They ended up using her, and the scene is a combination of footage that they already had, and the new footage recorded fifteen years later. Femi Taylor also has the distinction of being the only cast member from the original movies to reprise her role for the Special Edition.


Quotes

Shuttle captain: Command station, this is ST321, code clearance blue. We're starting our approach; deactivate the security shield.


Goofs

Luke proudly declares he's a Jedi like his Father before him when the Jedi are technically supposed to be celibate.


Crazy Credits

There are no opening credits.


Alternate Versions

In at least one earlier video release of the movie, Lando inexplicably says "now," right before saying "Come on, Han, old buddy. Don't let me down." The Special Edition restores the rest of the scene and shows that Lando says "We're sure in the middle of it now." The restored dialogue with Lando mentioned above is also present in full on the CBS/Fox 1990 U.S Widescreen Laserdisc, which is a re-issue of the 1986 Japanese Widescreen Laserdisc.
