Amazing Star Wars Set Photos Taken By A Fan Just Wandering By In 1982

These days it’s nearly impossible to get anywhere near a Hollywood set. Even when filming in downtown Manhattan, security is pretty tight. Video and photos leak out, but it’s usually nothing more than a quick shot of a vehicle driving by, or a crowd photo without any of the primary actors involved.

But things were different back when George Lucas was filming the original Star Wars trilogy. So different that back in the spring of 1982 when a Star Wars fan Mike Davis heard rumors that production on a movie called Blue Harvest: Horror Beyond Imagination was out in the desert, filming in a Southern California region known as Buttercup Valley. Mike decided to go camping in the desert nearby and check it out. He started hiking with his friends and this is what they found.

See even more photos from Mike’s 1982 journey through the desert around the Return of the Jedi set by clicking here.
