"'The Empire Strikes Back' was my second film for George Lucas and just as special as the first. 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 I to an unknown fate."  — H. Ellenshaw

Here Harrison has recreated his memorable matte shot of Han Solo’s carbon frozen body of being loaded on board Boba Fett’s ship, Slave I. Concept paintings by Ralph McQuarrie of Cloud City at sunset were the inspiration for the mystical feeling of this most important development in "The Empire Strikes Back" as the scene is bathed in the reds, lavenders, and pinks of a never ending twilight.
