Mark Hamill Never Shot the “Jedi” Lightsaber Deleted Scene

STAR WARS fans were delighted over the weekend when George Lucas took the stage at STAR WARS Celebration V to reveal a deleted scene from RETURN OF THE JEDI that will appear on the Blu-Ray release of the saga sometime in 2011. (Check it out here if you missed it!)

The scene shows Darth Vader attempting to communicate telepathically with Luke Skywalker while Luke builds his iconic green lightsaber. But an interview with Mark Hamill at last year’s San Diego Comic Con indicates that it may have been a stand-in who portrayed Luke in this lost scene.

What do the fans think? Does that take the shine off of this uncovered gem?
