Crawl out of that tauntaun, grab a cup of warm blue milk, and settle in for exciting stories about vacationing on the ice world of Hoth! On March 5, 1979, principal photography began in Finse, Norway for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. Mark Newbold of Fantha Tracks visited these icy plains. He stood on the grounds where Luke Skywalker was attacked by a wampa, he walked the snowy terrain where the great AT-AT battle took place, and he got to play in the snow with Darth Vader and his Imperial troops. Here he shares his stories and some amazing pictures.
