New Star Wars Deleted Scenes Trailer

The official Star Wars website has posted a deleted scenes teaser trailer for the upcoming Blu-ray releases of the entire saga. You may recall the deleted scene of Luke building his green lightsaber in Return of the Jedi, that was teased last year, which is included. Feast your eyes on wampas in the rebel base on Hoth and the sandstorm scene from Jedi. But there's also several scenes that took me by surprise--some that I've not even heard of (I won't spoil them here so you can have the pleasure of seeing them yourself!)

One that I'm pleased to see make the cut is my personal favorite, the deleted sequence with Luke on using macro binoculars watching the star destroyer chase and capture the rebel blockade runner above Tatooine. Here's hoping Biggs' scene is there too!

UPDATE: the trailer is now embedded for your viewing pleasure.


  1. I'm too lazy to Google at the moment, but are the original versions available on this new release? You know, the non-Special-Edition-Han-Shot-First theatrical releases?

  2. From what I've read the answer is "no". Lucas didn't even want to release the old versions on DVD to begin with. If you click the "Biggs' scene" link that should take you to an earlier post where I linked to the details about the release.
