30 Minutes Of Unreleased 'Return Of The Jedi' Footage Found

Outsiders - October 28, 2013

One auction on Ebay turned out to be almost a 30 year secret as this buyer paid $699 for a rare LaserDisc copy of "Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi." Only to find out it contained 30 minutes of never-before-released behind-the-scenes clips including a blooper reel for the film. The footage adds up to 50 scenes from "Return of the Jedi." Since his findings, he has posted them to a Facebook page under the user rotjeditdroid.

Here's a list of some of the footage found:

Filming of a conversation between Luke and Yoda from Yoda's point of view.

Conversation between Luke and Yoda from Luke's point of view.

A soundless scene of R2-D2 repairing Luke's X-wing.

A scene of Yoda dying.

Lightsaber practice tests.

Luke asking Yoda if Darth Vader is actually his father .

Here's the blooper reel with partial sound.

Facebook user rotjeditdroid describes how he cam across the material:

This is a generic Scotch Videodisc with computer printed label was used to demonstrate the EditDroid system which was debuted at the NAB show in Las Vegas in 1984. Now here's the amazing part for you Star Wars freaks out there... Approximately 30 minutes of unedited raw, unsweetened work print takes in letterbox format of scene 50 (Luke on Dagobah with Yoda) from "Return of The Jedi" were used - NEVER OFFICIAL RELEASED MATERIAL.

He plans to post all the material as long as he can before legally being told to stop by Disney.
