Travel back to a time long (but not long, long) ago in a land not so far a way in “From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga”! To celebrate the return of the “Star Wars” to the big screen, we’ve found the “Star Wars” YouTube archive of the documentary, which originally aired on PBS in 1983.

Narrated by Mark Hamill, the documentary provides a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “Return of the Jedi,” which had been released earlier that year, and includes additional material from “The Making of Star Wars” and “The Empire Strikes Back.”
