'STAR WARS' AT 40: A CAUSE TO BELIEVE IN...
It's like old times, if only temporarily, for Luke, as his best friend Biggs Darklighter (Garrick Hagon) seemingly makes a quick surprise visit to Anchorhead in order to see him and the old Tosche station gang. In secret, however, Biggs has another ulterior motive for his travels, letting Luke secretly know that he is about to jump ship from the Imperial Space Academy to join the growing Rebellion whose cause he passionately believes in, during an ultimately deleted scene from 1977, thankfully being made commercially available vin 2011, via Blu-ray. It was first screened to an unsuspected and soon delighted San Diego Comic Con fan audience on 28/7/97.
