New bloopers from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) have surfaced on the internet via those crazy kids at reddit and LucasFilm editor J.W. Rinsler, who has had unprecedented access to the archives because of his most recent book, The Making of Return of the Jedi, which was published earlier this month.
The reel, which is mostly silent and grainy, features Stormtroopers unintentionally performing pratfall gags, Harrison Ford eating his mike, and Mark Hamill questioning how to pronounce ‘supernova’ among other funny and silly outtakes and mistakes.
In the face of anxiety over the current JJ Abrams/Disney production of Star Wars VII, it’s nice to be reminded of the classics.
