Cool Videos: The original opening for Return of the Jedi

Aug. 16, 2010by: Niki Stephens

Somehow over the weekend we missed this.

Thanks to longtime reader, Smooveluv it is now in our possession and ready for your viewing pleasure.

This weekend in Orlando, Florida during Star Wars Celebration V, George Lucas and friends (Mark Hamill & Carrie Fisher) introduced the never before seen original opening for RETURN OF THE JEDI.

Luke is introduced a bit differently in this opening. Instead of appearing in a holographic recording, he finishes work on his lightsaber. Why does that get the geek blood rushing? It shows that he is now a Jedi master. The clip isn't very long, but it's cool to get some sort of "deleted material" from the films.

Getting all 6 films on Blu-ray in 2011 won't be too shabby either.

If you see a cool video online you think would be perfect for this spotlight, drop us a line at yourvideos@joblo.com.

Extra Tidbit: Darth Schwarzenegger. That is all.

Jesus christ man, I mean, I'm an uber nerd, but cheering for a deleted scene that shows some okay moments from a film released more than 30 years ago? I mean, I guess I get it, but still....seems a little overboard to me. Oh well, at least it was cool for the fans.

I really hope this scene makes it into the 3D versions of films that are going to be released in 2012 (the Star Wars 35th anniversary) in theaters.

Very cool, BUT...

He says "Luke" too many times. That's probably why it was cut.

Makes you wonder why this wasn't included in the theatrical re-release of the film in the 90s.

just saying...it proves hes a jedi knight, not a master. Traditionally, a jedi is made master after they train a padawan to knighthood, like Obi-wan.

Bwahah

Listening to the crowd was great. It really is that easy isn't it. Forget plot just show a guy in a hood fixing lightsabers with a screw driver & bam! You something awesome!

It is moments like this that make me not want to admit to being a Star Wars fan.

It was a good clip, but lets settle the fuck down people, seriously. My god.

It was ok I guess. Cool to see original footage but I think the opening they went with worked well enough.
