"The Empire Strikes Back was my second film for George Lucas and just as special as the first, maybe even more so. I love the concept of a city in the clouds as well as the uncertainty of Han Solo being carbon frozen and taken aboard Slave 1 on his way to an unknown fate."
— Harrison Ellenshaw
For this edition Harrison has recreated his matte painting from The Empire Strikes Back of Boba Fett's ship Slave 1 in Cloud City as the bounty hunter has Han Solo brought aboard. Concept paintings by Ralph McQuarrie of this sequence at sunset were the inspiration for the mystical feeling of this most important development as the shot is bathed in the reds, lavenders, and pinks of an never ending twilight.
