So what did we all think of this material some of us have been waiting decades to see? Here's my thoughts: Star Wars Tosche Station Mainly stuff we've seen before on the BTM CD-ROM (& then YouTube), except that Luke's introduction watching the space battle is now in colour, with sound, & with a few different takes, so clearly taken from a later cut. One curious thing is the very basic insert of what Luke is looking at through his binoculars - added recently or from the original workprint? There's also a brief line from Camie as she walks off in disgust - "Don?t worry about it, Wormie" - that wasn't on the BTM CD-ROM for some reason. Good to see these scenes with slightly better audio, even if it's just emphasising a few chummy pats on the back. Old Woman on Tatooine Bit odd that this exists as a standalone 'scene' - it's a very long, silent, single shot with no context. Would have thought it would have made more sense to cut it in with the Tosche Station scenes. Admittedly, there'd still be no context, as there wasn't a landspeeder effect done for her to be yelling at. Aunt Beru's Blue Milk Another standalone shot. So that's where the unappetising-looking liquid comes from. The Search for R2-D2 Pretty sure everything here is what we saw in 'Empire Of Dreams', there's none of the other experimental shots featured in the 'Lost Cut' article. Cantina Rough Cut Again, we've seen it on the BTM CD-ROM. It's an interesting glimpse at a few creatures & takes that didn't make the final cut. Han fires first, then the girl gets off his lap, ho ho. Stormtrooper Search Yet another standalone shot, one glimpsed before in the Star Wars Holiday Special - a silly gag involving a midget (apparently referred to as 'Flash Gordon' on set) evading a large creature with stilt-like legs, then a few stormtroopers wander about. The legs/stilts look ridiculous - exactly like a pair of stilts wrapped in rubber. Darth Vader Widens the Search Despite having been seen before in the SWHS with different audio, & now featuring the vocal stylings of Darth Farmer himself, this is actually a fascinating scene - it's a well-done tracking shot following Vader & Chief Bast down a Death Star hallway, both clearly frustrated at being hobbled by the Imperial hierarchy in their search for the missing plans & the Rebels. Chief Bast actually gets a chance to display some acting ability, however briefly. Alternate Biggs and Luke Reunion All it does is show the lines omitted from the SE regarding Luke's father - it seems to have been damaged in removing the lines, as there's a rough splice at the same point that a CGI Rebel walks past in the SE to mask the removal. They didn't include the other, forgotten, omitted part of the scene, where Luke & Biggs finally part with the cringeworthy line, "We're a couple of shooting stars, they'll never stop us!" Thank the Force for small mercies. Enough for one post - thoughts?
