A few weeks ago, drips of lost footage filled with cut takes from Return of the Jedi began appearing online. Now you can see all 30 minutes of the recovered footage, compiled into a single video.
These 30 minutes of film, containing scenes between Luke and Yoda on Dagobah, come from the Return of the Jedi Edit Droid Laserdisc, which recently resurfaced. Charlie Owen has released all of the footage from the laserdisc, so that fans can include it in their fan edits. It’s also interesting to watch, just to get a sense of the filming process between the human actors and puppets in the original trilogy.
