Lucasfilm Vault: Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back teaser trailer
Lucasfilm just uploaded the original trailer for the Empire Strikes Back. Listen to the voiceover as it pronounces Princess Leia's name as "Lee-uh" instead of the more common "Lay-uh." There is also another curious pronunciation of Lando Calrissian name as "Landau." I had to back the footage up a few times to make sure I heard it correctly. I leaves a lot to the imagination. I couldn't see any modern film team create a trailer like this. It's a nice blast from the past.
Watch the original teaser trailer for The Empire Strikes Back, which is notable for featuring solely concept art by Ralph McQuarrie but no film footage. Among the McQuarrie paintings seen are the Rebel hangar on Hoth, Luke on a tauntaun, Darth Vader aboard a Star Destroyer, Cloud City, an Imperial probe droid, and Luke's final duel with Darth Vader.
