An outtake reel of rarities and bloopers from the making of the first 'Star Wars' film is currently circulating the web.

This gem may not be on-line much longer (see: YouTube description below) so enjoy it while you can and may the Force be with you!

PLEASE NOTE - There is no sound on the first few clips - this isnt an error - original sound wasn't present. Star Wars Blooper Reel with previously un-seen outtakes.

Absent from any of the DVD or Bluray releases, this video is an excerpt from the book "The Making of Star Wars (Enhanced Edition) " by J.W Rinzler - available here -

The book has been re-released as a digital Ebook, and enhanced to include rare videos and audio excerpts newly discovered from the Lucasfilm archives. In my opinion the new digital edition of the book is worth every penny to the Star Wars fan looking for a rare glimpse behind the scenes of the films they love like myself.

Please buy the book if you enjoyed the video for a lot more rare & unseen material. Also available are both digital & print versions - "The Making of the Empire Strikes Back", & "The Making of Return of the Jedi".
