After the original teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi was released by LucasFilm last week, we have even more footage from the 1983 sequel, thanks to an enterprising fan known as Rotjeditdroid. This fan shelled out $699 for a rare Laserdisc on eBay, which contains special features that haven't been included in the previous Blu-ray and DVD releases. The first video pulled from the LaserDisc features alternate takes and behind-the-scenes lost footage from Yoda's death scene. In addition, we also have blooper reels from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope and the prequels Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.
We reported last week that there may be a big announcement for Star Wars: Episode VII on Wednesday, October 30, the one-year anniversary of Disney's $4 billion LucasFilm purchase and the announcement of Star Wars: Episode VII. Stay tuned to find out if any official details are finally revealed for this mysterious sequel, directed by J.J. Abrams.
Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi was released May 25th, 1983 and stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Sebastian Shaw, Ian McDiarmid. The film is directed by Richard Marquand.
