Old Star Wars Footage

Last modified on January 3rd, 2008

Surprisingly, I have never seen this before.. It’s an old opening scene from Star Wars: A New Hope. I thought it was a complete fake at first, but it looks like it was real footage that was intended to be included at one point.

What’s weird is that it’s sort of processed and seems to have been scored, which is unusual for anything that hits the cutting room floor. Possibly some fan added some Star Wars music to those scenes, but the music fits rather nicely which sort of makes me think it was in the movie up until the last minute.

I’m having a small HD-DVD movie marathon at my pad tomorrow. Should be fun.

  1. I remember something like this being the the NPR Star Wars radio drama.

    I think the dude that Luke talks to at the end about the rebellion ends up showing up towards the end of the movie when they are going to attack the death star.

    I can see why the footage was taken out though. Not that exciting.
