Previously unseen Star Wars raw footage found on laserdisc

And it only cost the guy $699:

Buyers of a rare LaserDisc used to demonstrate an 80s-vintage film editing system have found it full of raw footage from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, graciously posting clips to a Facebook account over the course of the past several days. Most of the clips are from Luke Skywalker's last visit to Yoda on Dagobah, but another gem features a full minute (without audio, unfortunately) of R2-D2 repairing Skywalker's damaged X-wing.

The origin of the LaserDisc isn't entirely clear, but it was purchased for $699 off eBay, apparently once used to demonstrate Lucasfilm's EditDroid station — one of the first digital film editing systems sold nearly 30 years ago. Ironically, George Lucas himself never used EditDroid to make a movie; the Star Wars clips were loaded simply to show off its capabilities to prospective buyers.

The guy's Facebook page.

Here's the full collection of the clips the guy has released, with 9 so far (it's on Facebook).

Here are the first 8 ROTJ clips the guy posted on Facebook, combined into one video:


And here are two clips he shared on his page that are not in his album:

I liked the test where even their hands seemed engulfed in energy--rather like the bulb discharge of pistols from the IRON WOLF commix...

Huh, looks like Yoda's line was originally "Look I so bad..." before it got changed in post to "Look I so old..."
