LaserDisc Sold For $699 Contains 30 Minutes Of Unseen Starwars Footage
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
This week is a big one for Star Wars fans as one fan who just purchased a $699 LaserDisc from eBay is willing to share the loot that lies within. 50 raw and behind the scene takes from Return of the Jedi that have never been seen before, totalling in at 30 minutes of retro charm.
The disc is one of the LaserDiscs that Lucasfilm used to save material that was due for processing on their EditDroid software, a bit of video editing software like Final Cut, just a little older. So it contains a pile of raw footage files before they had been worked on.
Not to be greedy, the user is now sharing the videos one by one on a Facebook page. We suspect there may be some copyright issues cropping up that sees the videos taken down, but given this is the internet you can bet people will be uploading mirrors of them just as fast.
Head on over to the official Return of the Jedi long lost Edit Droid Laserdisc Discovered facebook page for more information and of course, the videos!
Thank you Engadget for providing us with this information.
