A Deleted 'Star Wars' Scene Comes Alive in Rare Behind-the-Scenes Footage
From Yahoo Movies
The latest addition to the trove of rare and little-seen material from the first Star Wars film — including on-set photos and rough-cut footage — is this interesting bit of behind-the-scenes action. Posted by YouTuber Eyes on Cinema, the six-minute clip captures the Star Wars crew on one of its Tatooine locations in the North African desert. And for Star Wars fans, it’s a pretty Biggs deal.
The first half of the clip shows a 30-something George Lucas conferring with cinematographer Gilbert Taylor before discussing a scene — cut from the final film — in which Mark Hamill (Luke Sykwalker), Garrick Hagon (Biggs Darklighter) and Koo Stark traipse around the Tatooine settlement of Anchorhead.
Though Biggs is glimpsed briefly in 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope — he’s one of the X-Wing pilots killed in duty during the attack on the first Death Star — his original role was noticeably bigger: A scene cut from early in the film portrayed him and Luke as best pals, with Biggs serving as a kind of surrogate big-brother to the young Jedi-to-be.
