Blue Harvest Memorabilia
By Gus Lopez
While Lucasfilm was filming the then titled film, Revenge of the Jedi, the company shot on location under a false front, an upcoming horror film called Blue Harvest with the slogan, "Horror Beyond Imagination". The Blue Harvest gag went all out with the full range of film production items including shirts, caps, coats, buttons, signs, and stationery. One of the biggest irony of the whole Blue Harvest facade is that the logo looks exactly those used for the other Star Wars films!
The Blue Harvest front was only used during the principal photography for Return of the Jedi, but was also adopted in other areas such as a retro T-shirt that was made by ILM in the 90s, a cardboard mailer tube to ship Revenge of the Jedi posters, an episode of the Ewoks cartoon series, and even a popular Star Wars fanzine. The name Blue Harvest is widely known by Star Wars fans today.
