I’ve watched the Despecialized Edition of Star Wars, which many fans will remember as Episode IV: A New Hope. One of the things that caught my attention was the lack of the sound of the targeting computer during the TIE Fighter attack scene after Luke and company escape the Death Star. In most releases, you hear the sound of the targeting computer’s beeping just after Han tells Luke “You in, kid? Okay, stay sharp!”
My question is this: Was the sound present in the original cut whatsoever or was it only added in a re-release?
“The Force will be with you. Always…”
