Reviews Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

Trivia Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

Carrie Fisher complained about her wardrobe in the first two films of the original trilogy saying that the outfits were so long, you could not tell "she was a woman". The result of these complaints was the little outfit that she wore as Jabba's slave in 'Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi'. George Lucas fired Gary Kurtz, his friend and producer of the first two films of the original trilogy, because he did not agree with the director when he said that the audience didn´t mind about the story and only wanted a good show. One of the heels that Carrie Fisher wore in the scene where she clamber on top of Jabba the Hutt accidentally pierced the puppet's latex hitting Mike Edmonds, the one responsible for moving the tail.
