Can’t wait till next year to see the digitally remastered Star Wars trilogy at your cineplex? Catch a behind-the-scenes look at the filming and fine-tuning of the sci-fi epic in Making Magic, a new CD-ROM available only in LucasArts Archive, Vol. II. The disc features interviews with Star Wars creator George Lucas and producer Rick McCallum, who highlight the changes in the new versions of the films, along with storyboards and 3-D animation that document the progression of Lucas’ vision from idea to silver screen. Side-by-side comparisons of original sequences and updated scenes and candid off-camera photos (a shot of the Empire helmet ”factory” is a hoot) give fans a backstage pass to the real sorcery behind the industrial light and magic of Star Wars.
