All the Geek world was a flutter today at Celebration as George ( I will take every penny you have and use it to put cartoon bunnies in the Star Wars Saga) Lucas announced that the original trilogy and the other three are coming to Blu Ray. Big Shock.
Then he showed a deleted scene from Return of the Jedi where Darth Vader tries to reach out to Luke through the force while Luke prepares to hide his lightsaber in R2 D2. That’s not a metaphor.
The scene is interesting, but I think it’s much better being surprised about the saber being hidden in the little guy as well as not knowing that Luke is sitting in a cave half a mile away from Jabba’s palace when the droids knock on the door in the beginning.
Mr. Lucas doesn’t want you to see his secret footage without buying Return of the Jedi for the 13th time, so the video is gone. 😦
