Thanks to GMA, we have some rare behind the scenes footage to appreciate from the set of The Empire Strikes Back. Apparently, it has never been seen before, so it should be a treat for fans of the franchise, and ESB in particular.

The video offers up nearly seven minutes of b-roll style footage from the Hoth, Falcon, and Bespin sets of the production. You will get some cast and crew interviews from the time about the project as they discuss what it was like to shoot various now iconic scenes. It’s really just a great nostalgic look back at Empire and how it was made, so check it out below and thank the Maker!

You can also view it on GMA’s site below if the player above gets wonky.
