I remember that somewhere was shown the original Leia’s message for R2 before it was made to hologram (ie. Carrie standing in a black room). Any idea where this clip was?

Wow, there’s clearly a lot of BTS footage from the OT we haven’t seen yet.

Oh yeah, that was it. Too bad there isn’t a full version, and even that was a different take without the hood.

There was at least one more unused alternate angle that was shot for the Leia hologram, and interestingly enough it found it’s way into this scene from The Last Jedi.

I remember seeing a still from the raw footage of this angle (Leia with a black background behind her), although I don’t know if the actual video is anywhere on the internet. I might do some digging and see if I can find it.

In the stuff you could never make up dept. Stephen King had a Greedo action figure on the set of Creepshow for good luck.
