The Lost “Star Wars” Opening Scenes

Okay, so I’m as big a Star Wars fan as the next guy, but this really threw me. This YouTube video shows a “lost” beginning to the original Star Wars movie, and it’s terrible. Apparently these scenes were cut due to “time restrictions,” and boy am I glad. This is one of the best examples I’ve seen of how editing makes a movie better. (Note: this apparently surfaced over a year ago, but this is the first I have ever heard of it.)

Watch the opening scenes, if you dare…
