Lost Star Wars clips surface on Facebook

By James Cook on October 28th, 2013

It’s every Star Wars fan’s dream: thirty minutes of long-lost, deleted scenes from Return Of The Jedi available to watch online.

One anonymous Star Wars fan is risking copyright infringement notices by posting a haul of content on Facebook. The dedicated fan reportedly paid $699 for a LaserDisc on eBay. The disc originates from LucasFilm, which has historically used LaserDiscs to save content for editing.

So far, the footage seems to focus on Luke Skywalker and Yoda, including classic scenes from different perspectives and dialogue that was cut from the final movie.

You can see all of the clips released so far on the Facebook page.

As you wait for the next clip to be posted, here’s some unseen Star Wars bloopers that have surfaced on YouTube recently. Watch as Peter Cushing fluffs his lines and a group of Imperial Stormtroopers fail at climbing through a hole.
