A blooper reel from the original Star Wars films? It's found its way out of the Lucasfilm vault...

Now this is fun. From the deep recesses of the Lucasfilm archives comes a blooper real from the making of the original Star Wars films. It's a fun video, that's deliberately without sound on the first few clips (and one of the later ones).

It's been released to tie into the enhanced edition release of The Making Of Star Wars book, which you can find here, and for a franchise that began to take itself incredibly seriously from the late 90s, it's a refreshing reminder of just how fun it all was.

So, in lieu of any new details on Star Wars: Episode VII, why not treat yourself to a gander at this. Er, if you've not already seen it on one of the other 58358392 websites that have posted it...

You can't but realise just how hard it must be to get "into" a moment when acting, theres the sound of the set around you, which apart from the normal bumps and thumps of life, there is just a deadening silence, no sound effects, no music.
No audience feedback. Green screen work must be a nightmare.
Must be hard to do frankly.
That was a good clip.

Its been deleted due to a copyright claim by Lucas - so is there an official version, or was this not actually released as a tie in with the official book as mentioned above?

If it was, why remove it?
