Back in the mid-1980's, George Lucas was the executive producer on a the fantasy adventure classic Labyrinth.  While not a huge success at the time, the film has achieved cult status over the years - and it stands as a testament to the everlasting genius of Jim Henson and his Creature Shop.  It also introduced a generation of impressionable teenage girls, such as myself, to David Bowie.  We are forever grateful. 

In the video below - which was released as part of the Labyrinth electronic press kit - Lucas discusses how his collaboration with Jim Henson on The Empire Strikes Back came about, and how Yoda was an experiment for both filmmakers.  He also talks a bit about the casting of David Bowie in the role of the Jareth the Goblin King, and about which Labyrinth character is his favorite.
