UPDATE: Watch Now: Legendary Lost Return Of The Jedi Scene Revealed
UPDATE: It turns out George Lucas may actually be faking this deleted scene. For more details check out the article about it here.
The big news that came out of Celebration V today was that there are official plans to release the entire Star Wars saga, meaning episodes one through six, in a comprehensive Blu-ray package. While Lucas would not say which version of the original trilogy would be released, be it the original or the special editions, he did promise that they would include a long-lost deleted scene in which we finally see Luke building his lightsaber in Return of the Jedi. Said clip was shown during the announcement, and, lucky us, someone taped it.
TheForcenet on YouTube has uploaded the short clip, which clocks in at less than a minute, but is certainly a piece of history. In it, Darth Vader is sending a message to Luke about his destiny, before we see young Skywalker, concealed by a hood, building his lightsaber in a cave on Tattooine. You can almost hear the ground shake when he activates his lightsaber for the first time and it is guaranteed to send chills down the spine of every Star Wars fan.
Check out the video below and do it quickly: this will not be around for long.
