This question has been asked by fans for many years, and there are countless internet memes about it as well. If you’re a hardcore star wars fan, you probably know the answer to this question, but some people still debate what actually happened, despite there being footage out there that proves it.
I saw this awesome post on Reddit this morning and decided to post this on my website so if anyone is in doubt, doubt no more!
This is the original, unaltered video clip from Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope. One of the Redditors managed to pick up the original VHS version somewhere, and he uploaded this particular scene to Reddit because so many people asked to see it in its unaltered state.
I haven’t researched this much myself, but I do know that there is a version of all three of the original trilogy movies unaltered and in DVD format. I can’t remember where I found it now because it was some time ago, but there was a group of Star Wars fans that worked on it as a project and then uploaded it to the internet for fans. I might have to go looking again to see if I still have it bookmarked, but this is rare footage indeed. There is also a chance that the footage may have been taken down by now, so I wanted to show this before the same thing happens.
Let me know what you think? Have you ever seen this version before? I’d be keen to discuss it with you!
Stay safe, keep watching and creating and I’ll see you in the next post!
