George Lucas recently announced that there are official plans to release the entire Star Wars Saga (episode 1 to 6) in a Blu-ray package. The new edition would also include a long lost deleted scene. In that scene, Darth Vader is trying to a contact Luke using the force and getting him to join him at the dark side. We then see Luke, concealed by a hood, building his lightsaber in what some sources say is Obi-Wan’s house. (Although it looks more like a normal cave to me) This scene is supposed to happen before C3PO and R2-D2 went to Jabba the Hutt’s palace.
The cut scene was shown at Star Wars Celebration V. Fortunately for us, someone sneak a video camera in. BUT unfortunately for us, LucasArts has issued a take down notice and Youtube is taking down all the video they can find as we speak. So I don’t know how long will this video be available. If you can’t see it, that means it has been taken down.
But but but….. Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, said that he don’t remember filming that part. Note that we can’t see the face clearly in the video. So there could be a chance that the video is shot using a body double. Or Mark did film that shot but he forgotten about it. Or some people are speculating that the shot is filmed recently to be included into the Blu-ray edition. You be the judge.
But it’s amazing how many times George Lucas can release the same film over and over again and again. So what’s next after Blu-ray edition? 3D edition? Hmmm….
