    I came across this article today saying how Disney+ has added in to ANH the deleted scene of Luke & Biggs at the Tosche Station, after Luke witnesses the battle above Tatooine. I have no idea how legitimate of a site it is, probably just bogus click-bait. (And I haven't seen the Russo Bros YouTube video it references)

    https://www.nme.com/news/film/disney-adds-lost-luke-skywalker-scene-to-star-wars-a-new-hope-2698578?fbclid=IwAR26dNVeoRxbPY56CUG5NnL3jGp656hX795roBNqrgSaDwy0YLNAq0zDDVY

    I was actually excited to see it cleaned up to top notch quality, but when I hopped on D+, alas, it wasn't in there. The scenes exist under the extras / deleted scenes as they always have, but this made it seem like it was added back into the feature version. Anyone seeing this differently than I am??

    Regardless of this instance, Disney+ hasn't been afraid to alter the SW films -- Maclunkey! -- and there's probably some other examples I'm forgetting. It's likely only a matter of time before this treatment reaches the ST and other films. Or, maybe not.

    This got me thinking... regardless of the outcome of this instance, what are your thoughts on this practice as a whole? Do you like this supposed tinkering with the SW films?

    From what I remember "the Maclunkey!" was actually left over from a change that Lucas was going to incorporate into the 3D re-release or HD re-release of A New Hope. That's not Disney's doing.

    Even if Disney altered the films, there are been so many changes from the films in the past, I don't see what the big hulabuloo is if they slap more changes on. Actually, adding deleted scenes would be interesting to a SW film; it's not often done.

    That was pretty much my line of thought as well.

    Secretly add one back in every couple years. Keep people on their toes, give them a little surprise during a random re-watch :D

    As long as non-expanded versions of the films exist, I'm all for adding deleted scenes to any SW movie. I want more SW in my SW :D

    I'm hoping one of these days D+ will offer the four or five* different versions of the OT: Theatrical, SE, SE 04, etc, etc.

    *Or is closer to ten different versions these days? I've lost count.

    NME is a British entertainment and music magazine that has been in publication for 68 years, so they're definitely not a 'clickbait site'.

    Yeah, that's what I heard. This was a George mod. It happened to be the most recent version LFL had, so it's what DIS decided to put up.

    As far as the scene itself, it's definitely the only deleted one I actually like. It has a fun 'American Graffiti' vibe and flat out states Luke's motivation for impatiently wanting to join the academy early. I love it, but can't imagine it would work well reintegrated. It was cut for a reason. As an experiment though, I'd be down to seeing it.

    I seriously doubt Disney will be tweaking SW in any significant way beyond restoration any time soon.

    I was thinking about it too, and it totally changes Luke's whole introduction to the saga. And I don't know if I like the deleted scene that much.

    I wish Disney release the original movies as they were release back in the 70's and 80's but in a Bluray quality. Thats all that I ask. After that they can change the movies as they want, even putting Jar Jar as a forceghost in the end of ROTJ.

    Oh, it would be pretty terrible and absolutely destroy the pacing, but I for one would still love to see it :)

    If you mean where Luke meets up with Biggs, then yes. I recently considered how in The Empire Strikes Back Yoda interprets Luke's looking away as Luke seeking adventure. This may actually be untrue, as Luke was thinking of Biggs going off to help the Rebellion. It is less about adventure and more about: "my friend's going off and making a difference".

    It's a Star Wars forum, if someone didn't get it... there would be a problem.
