    Luke goes to Anchorhead chills with Biggs.



    I have this clip on a CD-Rom Lucas Arts put out some years ago. It would be nice if they put it on those new DVDs they have coming. At lest as a special.

    Wow. I wish they would have left that in. It really adds to Biggs/Luke and the Rebellion. Oh well, I do understand that it would have messed with the flow of the movie. :(  Still, its a shame. At minimum I would have liked to see this on the DVD.

    I have that CD..though I'm not sure where the hell I put it. As I recall, the inclusion of that clip was like, the main selling point. I hope they do put it on the new DVDs; be nice to watch it on TV as opposed to the computer screen.

    Yep. Got the CD too. I believe it was a 2-3 CD Thing. I know it had an interactive "Walk around inside" Falcon too.

    Behind the Magic is was called.

    This stuff from "A New Hope" was, at least in my opinion, truly useful for helping the audience understand just how completely cut off Luke was during the final moments of the trench flight - he's lost his Jedi mentor, he's lost his parents and HE HAS LOST A CLOSE FRIEND. I think that packs that one additional, near-tear-jerking umph you need to really make the loss of Biggs worthy of the emotional response you get from Mark Hamill.

    Plausibly, though, I'll admit that it does seem hard to accept that, okay, first Biggs is on Tatooine, coaching Luke...and then, okay, now Biggs is on Yavin, flying a fighter with Luke. That's a bit hard to accept. However, I stand by what I said - I think that scene delivers a lot to the dramatic aspect of the first film.

    Hell, the deleted scenes from the prequels would have, in my opinion, made them better films. The actual character-building scenes between Padme and Anakin that were cut from Episode Two would have, I think, changed the balance of the film enough that the drama of the story wouldn't have fallen flat, (when held up against the "start of the Clone Wars" ending.)

    Every time I see Lucas and McCallum shrug and sheepishly offer, "We thought it'd bring the film together if we cut it," I shake my head in disagreement. I guess I just see storytelling a different way than they do. Then again, they have millions of dollars, so they must be doing something right.

    Thanks for posting that link! I'm glad I finally got to see those scenes.

    If I had seen this, say, 10 years ago, I would have been JUMPING WITH EXCITEMENT every frame of this. As is, my opinion of Star Wars is quite different from 10 years ago, and I find myself asking, "The big deal was over...THAT?"

    I've seen this before. I think it's great footage and it finally explains how Luke is wearing that Gilligan hat. If possible that footage really should be added in to the DVDs.

    I don’t think it’s that big of a leap. Biggs has come home on leave to tell Luke he is joining the Rebellion. Then is either told to go to Yavin or already was on the way when he stopped off at home. Luke goes from being a whinny looser on Tatoonie to hook up with an old Jedi, a couple smugglers and ends up on the Death Star where he saves a princess. Now it’s good fortune they would end up at the same Rebel base but I bet how Biggs got there was more “realistic”.

    I was disappointed when it wasn’t cut back in for the Special Edition but if I recall right from that CD Lucas hatter the scene and only filmed it because people where kept hassling him that he needed to set up Luke as being friendless

    ditto here on the coincidink factor.

    if anything, SW is a big ass series of coincidences; how r2 and 3po found leia, how they ended up on tattoine found by foster parents of 'the chosen one! /kung pao', et cetera et cetera.

    i could go on, but you get my drift.

    Good to see, but I'm glad it wasn't in the original movie, for it's lamer than 20 Twin Twists.

    that's actually a pretty concise method to quantifying lame-ness.

    this post is twin twist ad infinitum.
