Previously-Unreleased Deleted Scene from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK from the STAR WARS Blu-ray Box Set

There have been plenty of complaints about George Lucas’ continued tinkering with the original Star Wars trilogy (interesting side note: aside from the CGI Yoda in The Phantom Menace, Lucas hasn’t touched the prequels), but there’s more than just defiled movies on the upcoming Blu-ray box set.  The set contains previously unreleased deleted scenes and one of those scenes has gone online. The clip shows an extended bickering/flirting between Han and Leia on Hoth.  Their conversation is more sexually overt that what made the final cut and I’m glad it was left on the cutting room floor.  It’s too much too soon in the development of their relationship and it doesn’t really fit with the overall tone of The Empire Strikes Back.

Click over to EW to see the clip.  The only way to see the deleted scenes and all of the new special features is to buy the entire Star Wars: The Complete Saga and pay extra for the prequels you don’t want.  The Complete Saga set, along with the prequel trilogy and original trilogy sets, goes on sale September 16th.
