Slipping stormtroopers and other Star Wars bloopers

Previously unseen footage hits the InterWeb

If you're a fan of the original "Star Wars" film, you'll want to watch this video, which offers up some behind-the-scenes bloopers from the movie. The clip is part of an e-book titled "The Making of Star Wars (Enhanced Edition)", and the YouTube poster, Neil Bowyer, says the footage seen here wasn't seen on any of the movie's DVD or Blu-ray releases.


The first few clips don't have any sound, so don't turn up your speakers. Once you see Peter Cushing (Grand Moff Tarkin), you'll have sound available.

It's good to know that the actors in the stormtroopers got better traction on their shoes for the final cut.
