Empire Every Day 026
Many people think that it wasn’t until Return of the Jedi that the AT-ST’s first appeared but they actually appear on Hoth for a couple seconds. I actually didn’t even notice them until a couple of days ago.
FACT: More scenes of the AT-ST Imperial “chicken walkers” were filmed, but George Lucas decided that the larger AT-ATs were more menacing and impressive. He later realized that the AT-STs would work better in close quarters, which led to using them extensively in the forest battle in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983).
