People don't believe me when I mention this. I hope someone else here remembers it.
I saw Star Wars, A New Hope (Episode IV) on the very first day of it's release. Movie 1 on day 1 in 1977. Like everyone else I waited in line for hours and thought it was awesome.
You'll recall the scene where Luke is on the death star to save Leia, and shows up wearing a storm trooper uniform. ("I'm Luke Skywalker, I'm here to rescue you!") We don't see all of the detail where he and Han get the uniforms. ("I can't see a thing in this helmet!") Ref Luke Skywalker/Legends#Rescue_on_the_Death_Star
In the first run we do. Luke knocks-out a trooper and removes his helmet. The hideous face of the person (alien?) wearing the uniform made people in the theater gasp. I think this was removed right after that because as a family movie they didn't want people to be shocked in horror, or to scare any little kids. But because this scene was deleted from any subsequent re-publishing (VCR, DVD, editor cuts, etc), simply no one has seen it.
So does anyone else here remember this day-1 scene?
Of course we know that the original troopers were clones, but that was a generation before the troopers around at the time ANH. Aside from this, we never see troopers without the helmet - there's no telling where these guys came from at this point, so it fits the story that they were not human clones.
More on-topic with this wiki, can anyone refer to script, video, interview, or other confirmation with all details related to Luke obtaining that uniform? I'll be happy even if Lucas or Hamill can be quoted as saying this was Not a part of the original movie (and then of course I was dreaming it).
I am fairly certain that is not true—why would any alien be more disturbing than one of the cantina aliens like Labria, Momaw Nadon, or especially Lak Sivrak or the Lamproid. Certainly, if it were true, it would already be on this wiki.--ARC Commander Colt (talk) 23:20, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
