Watch This Deleted Scene From ‘Empire Strikes Back’ Upcoming ‘Star Wars’ Blu-ray

We’re less than two weeks away from the release of the Star Wars original and prequel trilogies on Blu-Ray and now Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive look at a deleted scene from The Empire Strikes Back to be included among the set’s generous selection of bonus features. You can check out the scene below this article.

Running less than a minute, the scene is an additional dialogue exchange between Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) during the first act of the film after the former smuggler announces his intention to leave the Rebellion so he can pay his debt to Jabba the Hutt. The scene as it played in the theatrical version perfectly established the burgeoning romantic tension between Han and Leia, so this additional dialogue is redundant. But even in this needless exchange you can feel the sparks flying between these two; Ford and Fisher’s acting is superb (a marked improvement over the first Star Wars) and their chemistry is palpable, thanks to the excellent, nuanced direction by the late Irvin Kershner and the beautiful screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and the late Leigh Brackett.

The Star Wars trilogies will be released on Blu-ray on September 16, 2011.

  1. Yeah, I’m glad they cut that. Nice to see some new footage, but Han does way too much finger pointing.
