Just-Released ‘Empire Strikes Back’ Deleted Scene Reveals Extended Sparring Between Han and Leia [VIDEO]


George Lucas is famous — or should we say infamous — for tinkering with the original ‘Star Wars‘ movie trilogy. For example, he’s “updated” them with CGI technology that was unavailable at the time they were originally shot, much to the dismay of movie purists the world over who felt they were perfect as-is.

But when the umpteenth re-release of the films, ‘Star Wars: The Complete Saga,’ comes out in Blu-ray on September 16, fans will get to see what Lucas didn’t include, such as this deleted scene between Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) from ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’

In the original cut of the movie, the sexually-charged exchange ends with Leia rejecting Han by spitting, “I’d just as soon kiss a Wookie!” and Han’s rebuttal, “I can arrange that… You could use a good kiss!”

The scene that wound up on the cutting-room floor was longer, and the barbs sharper.
