Long Lost Scene From A New Hope Has Been Found! (1977)

Even with something as hugely popular in pop culture that Star War was…and let’s be honest here…still is, there are small elements of the film that were either edited out for timing purposes or excised when a change in the script took place.

Star Wars - Lost Scene

Like in this scene that was thought lost for almost 39 years, there was originally an additional bit of dialogue…a rather amazing speech from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Luke Skywalker!

Now imagine how just that extra scene would have changed the whole thematic point of the original Star Wars films, right?!

Utini!!
