Cool behind the scenes and on the set images from the third installment of the best franchise ever
Long before the great bounty hunter Boba Fett wowed audiences in Empire Strikes Back, they had to make the costume. Once the concept drawing was approved, the Lucas Arts team made this mock up suit to show it off (before it got a splash of color). Here are some cool behind the scenes shots from Skywalker Ranch when they tested the prototype of the costume.
Cool test pictures along with some back story for some of the alien characters spotted in the Mos Eisley Cantina
Tzizvvt was a male Brizzit who hailed from Jandoon. Claiming to be a professor of xenoarchaeology searching for a treasure known as “The Eye of the Beyonder”, he was believed to be a fugitive from the Empire named Ilna. Setting up residence in Tatooine’s sewers, Tzizvvt soon became a figure of derision on the planet, dismissed as a “crazy old storyteller.” He had in fact collected some treasures, which he kept in his sewer-bound residence, but kept them secret from the proletarians.
He first appeared in “Star Wars”, as an unnamed alien in the Cantina sequence, portrayed by Stephen Calcutt. On the set of the film, the character was known as “Snail Head,” and was supposed to have been given the proper name of “Illna.” The character was largely edited out of the film following re-shoots, but still appears fleetingly in the final cut.
