This Long-Lost Original ‘Star Wars’ Blooper Reel Is Cool (and Unsettling)

by 4 years ago

A green guy breaking his green finger…

Solo eating his headset…

And stormtroopers trampling each other, which was well worth a GIF…

Among other things, the nearly 40-year-old clip presents a movie that looks astoundingly cheap, from the plastic sets to Chewie's ratty hair, and the lines—when devoid of any context—sound cornier than your Sci-Fi Channel movie of the week. That Star Wars turned out as iconic and rewatchable as it did is a testament to special effects, a timeless story, and the badassery of Harrison Ford. Because, as this behind-the-scenes peak shows, it was so very close to being forgettable.
