From what i've been reading Lucas has been saying this is a deleted scene but Mark Hamill doesn't remember shooting this. It look like new footage to me, just the style is closer to the prequels than the original trilogy. Also they don't ever show Luke's face, just a bit of his chin.

I'm not sure if it will add anything to the movie. It seems too short to actually add anything to the plot of the film. It doesn't answer any plot holes, it just seems superfluous.

I call bull. No one except Jones knew about the father/son thing in the cast. This whole scene would not have made sense before Empire.

StanleyPain - 2010-08-15

No, it's a real deleted scene, though undoubtedly cleaned up and finished for the next release. It was to come right before Luke goes into Jabba's palace.

There are probably a lot of scenes in Return of the Jedi that wouldn't have made sense before Empire.

Eat a poison dick and die, George Lucas.

Why would it have visual effects and music and shit if it was deleted. Never mind I don't care.

I was actually at Celebration 5 this last weekend where this was debuted at.

The scene is "all done up" with effects and all because it was cut JUST before the film was released. It was a rare instance of a scene that was fully finished being cut at the end, so it preserved the original music and effects... which is why it's important... but I agree... not "HELL YEAH!" important like some of the schmucks made it out to be.

In the digital re-release of this scene a bantha will wander across the screen.

StanleyPain - 2010-08-15

In the special blu-ray edition, an actual bantha will walk through your living room in front of the TV while you're watching.

In the limited edition director's cut, George Lucas will break into your house in the middle of the night dressed up like slave Leia and skull fuck you at gunpoint while screaming 'DADDY LOVES ME, DADDY LOVES ME'

I just don't get what they're cheering about.

Comeuppance - 2010-08-15

Nerds, man.

roughnready66 - 2010-08-15

that clip is uber nerdy

dementomstie - 2010-08-15

What I don't understand is why the crowd is SO EXCITED by this. So he's fiddling with his light saber, so? I'm a Star Wars fan and my reaction was more "And?" than anything else. This is disappointing and annoying. Fellow nerds: React correctly next time, don't cheer for something that isn't exciting. If it was a 5 minute sequence showing him harvesting the crystals I'd be more understanding with the excitement. This just looks like more bullshit that makes me glad I already have the VHS tapes so I don't have to give George Lucas any more money.

I cringed and had to mute it. *shudder*

Old_Zircon - 2010-08-16

Yeah, my laserdisc player broke three years ago and I'm still holding onto my laserdiscs just because. And I'm not even a huge Star Wars fan.

Old_Zircon - 2010-08-16

Also, this scene sucks and was a good cut, much lie the 15+ minutes cut from Aliens that reveals the fate of the colonists BEFORE Ripley even agrees to go there, hence eliminating all suspense from the first half of the movie.

sosage - 2010-08-15

George Lucas is coming back to molest our childhood OH YEAH! ALRIGHT! YEAAAAAH! SO AWESOME!

Robert DeNegro - 2010-08-15

What's Star Wars?

Squeamish - 2010-08-15

Why does he keep doing this? Why? WHY?

phalsebob - 2010-08-15

Hear all those gibbering tards offscreen? They have pockets.

Honestly, this is a pretty tactful scene considering what else Lucas has done. No cartoons bouncing around like it was The Mask 2, no 22000 layers of special effects, no acting like it was directed by Zoidberg's uncle. I still won't pay a penny to see it.

Comeuppance - 2010-08-15

Imagine if you knew you could make 200 million dollars just by taking a film you made 30 years ago and adding a minute of footage to it.

I mean, holy shit.

5 stars for a phenomenon I do not understand

Hooker - 2010-08-15

So assuming this was cut, that's a good cut. This doesn't add anything to the characters or the plot that we don't already know.

FABIO - 2010-08-15

Between the scene where Luke first uses his new lightsaber and the scene near the end where Vader comments he built a new one, 40% of nerds in the audience will have shat their pants wondering where the new saber came from. Half of those will have lapsed into a smelly pants shit coma.

Ah yes, my new lightsabre is finally finished. Now I just need to catch some midichlorians to charge it with.

il fiore bel - 2010-08-15

Am I the only one who first thought that looked like Emperor Palpatine?

TypicalEllisProtagonist - 2010-08-16

George Lucas wrote "subtlety" on a brick and just hurled it through your window.
