Han Solo carbon freeze set 'best set in film'

A key set in Star Wars movie The Empire Strikes Back - designed by Norman Reynolds - was "the best in the film".

The scene saw Han Solo frozen in carbonite on the planet Bespin and later featured a lightsaber dual between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

But Reynolds, who lives in Cheltenham, recalls that director Irvin Kershner was initially unhappy with the set.
