Wampa ice creatures have entered the base

There’s a fascinating post at ScriptShadow about Leigh Brackett’s fabled first draft of The Empire Strikes Back screenplay.  Brackett is one of my favorite F&SF writers, and I’ve been wanting to find out more about her original version of ESB for quite some time now.  Even though I still haven’t read the screenplay, ScriptShadow’s treatment is a pretty good start…  I think my favorite part is when the Rebel base on Hoth is overrun by a horde of Wampa ice creatures — how freaking awesome is that!
