DELETED SCENE (UPDATED): FALCON DUDES!
Here's a scene from STAR WARS that I want to see included on the upcoming Blu-ray release no matter what-I don't care if it turns out good or badly realised, I just want to see it. It's the moment after the TIE fighter battle where Han and Luke congratulate themselves on their laser gun targeting skills. There's a real "Whoa, look what we did!" expression on Luke's face. Classic.
UPDATES: 26/3/2015. Access to Ann Skinner's continuity script reveals some handwritten extra dialogue notes added to the TIE attack aftermath filming, linked to this scene:
LUKE: Hey, that was great! Listen, just going to the deck to see if the droids are okay.
HAN: Okay. Smooth shooting, Kid.
In the following Falcon cockpit scene, just before Han sits down to talk to Leia, there's a reason why Chewie departs to the corridor, as revealed in another of Skinner's handwritten script additions:
HAN (to CHEWIE): Hey pal- good going. You did great. Go check the aft coverter. We took a couple of hits real close to that.
With thanks to Ann Skinner and the BFI SPECIAL COLLECTIONS.
