Hello everybody,

As some of you may know, I’ve recently been trying to acquire the essential Star Wars “bonus features” releases (actually, it’s all things obscure Star Wars). My current library currently includes (legally purchased when applicable):

Episodes I-VI

Star Wars: Bonus Material (featuring Empire of Dreams)

The Story of Star Wars - Bonus DVD

Star Wars: Clone Wars (animated) Volumes I and II

Star Wars The Clone Wars (CG)

Star Wars: Droids

Star Wars: Ewoks

Ewok Adventures (Caravan of Courage and Battle for Endor)

The Star Wars Holiday Special

The Rowman Collection

Star Wars: Spoofs and Bonus Features

Deleted Magic

Building Empire (currently downloading)

Returning to Jedi (currently downloading)

In these releases, I notice a few things that I believe should be included somewhere, but seem to have failed in doing so. As such, I have been creating some DVDs to add to my collection, and thought I’d offer them to the public as well, if there is interest.

I have currently completed my “Star Wars: The Holiday Special” Bonus Disc. The version of the special that I own includes some bonus features, but none of them actually pertain to the special itself. My disc includes the following:

I do not own original copies of any of these. This is merely a compilation of what I have found across the internet. It is nothing that anybody else couldn’t do - but as far as I can tell, no one has. The quality varies, but I have a decent sized widescreen television and I was pleasantly surprised with most of it. I do not have access to a private torrent site, but would be willing to post it to a public one if there is interest. Anyone is welcome to download it from there and put it on a private one.

My second project is in the works, but is going to contain things that I would like to own on DVD but did not find on any of my downloads or legal copies. Again, I do not own any original copies, these are merely what I have come across. It is the “Odds and Ends” disc. Here is the list so far:

  • Richard Pryor’s Star Wars Bar

  • C 3P0s commercial (I realize this has been included before, but not in anything I have been able to find)

  • Star Wars According to a 3 Year Old

  • The full ANH Jabba the Hutt scene (since that was attained after the release of Deleted Magic)

  • “The Injured Stormtrooper”

  • “The Vader Sessions”

  • “Ewok Gospel” with Billy Dee Williams

  • Behind the Scenes of the Ewok Gospel

  • Star Wars Public Service Announcments (the real ones from the 70s)

  • Return of the Ewok (again, I realize this has been released, but all I have is this version, and I want it on a disc)

Let me know if there is any interest in any of this. I have taken much from the community and am willing to give back.
