Never-before seen Star Wars outtakes on display in new video
First Published Oct 29 2013 09:33 am • Last Updated Oct 29 2013 01:43 pm

No wonder the Empire lost to the rebel alliance — the storm troopers were so clumsy they fell all over each other.

That’s one of many mistakes, falls, and general bumbling in a new Star Wars outtake reel, uploaded to YouTube Sunday. The video is a treat for fans of the film franchise, showing actors Harrison Ford, Alec Guinness and others breaking character after botched lines and missed cues.

The description accompanying the video reveals that the new footage comes from a recently re-released ebook, "The Making of Star Wars (Enhanced Edition)" by J.W Rinzler.

The video — which has no sound for the first 49 seconds — had more than 300,000 views Monday and 216 comments. The top comment, from user Nuclear Jesus, was particularly observant: They were going to upload the blooper’s reel for The Phantom Menace, but YouTube’s copyright rules prevented them from uploading the entire film.
