Shoes & Potatoes
During the filming of movie scenes, it is not unusual to improvise on some props. However, some of these got through the editing process without the editors noticing. The Empire Strikes Back was one of the most well-received films among the first trilogy of the franchise. That’s why the effects used for the film were especially taken note of because of how well it was made for its time.
Audiences were very keen on observing even the smallest details of the movie. Some rumors have surfaced that the effects used in the production included pieces of potatoes painted into asteroid imagery to grant a sense of realism in the shot. Aside from potatoes, other rumors have also stated that there were tennis shoes and yogurt containers in the background.
