You might want to be a little more specific about what is in this "alternate ending". Are you referring to the original Sebastian Shaw scene?

<span class=“Italics”>MeBeJedi: You aren’t one of us.
<span class=“Bold”>Go-Mer-Tonic: I can’t say I find that very disappointing.</span></span>

<span class=“Italics”>JediRandy: I won’t suck as much as a fan edit.</span>

Or maybe the mythical destruction of the Millenium Falcon ?

Was the Millennium Falcon destruction really filmed? I've heard of the test screening w/ that scene & the audience reaction that caused them to change it, but i never knew if that was actually true or just a fan-spread rumor.

Rumor.

That'll be one for the Star Wars.com Urban Legends page

Although being the official site, its not exactly impartial, and they have been known to rewrite star wars history on occasion, as per Lucas' revisionist whims.

The only alternate(ish) ending I've seen for Jedi is a roughcut of the 1997 Special Edition changes, consisting of the original ending footage intercut with storyboards for new shots of the planets celebrating, set to what sounded like an early version of John Williams 1997 SE end celebration music. No exploding Falcons though

If I was an ILM staffer, I would have blown up an old Kenner Falcon and filmed it against a blue screen, then "leak" the footage just to drive people nuts!

Where were you in '77?

I've seen footage, most likely faked. I'm pretty sure I've got it on a disk somewhere.

**EDIT**
OK, so I found it, and it's NOT footage, it's a single picture of The Falcon engulfed in the explosion. Just goes to show how we can remember seeing things that we never really saw.

I take no credit for this image. I don't remember where it came from.

I've seen that before as well.

I've seen this. It is footage from a workprint of the ROTJ 1997 Special Edition. With rough computer animations and drawings, it only depicts the scenes of the other planets celebrating the fall of the empire cut into the the original ewok celebration. Really no big deal.

I believe that comes from a cutscene in one of the Rogue Squadron games, most likely 2. If you fail to outrun the explosion, that gets showed to you.

My initial thought was that it might be from Rebel Assault II

The image of the Falcon exploding comes from Robert Brown's SW Technical Commentaries site. He Photoshopped an image of the falcon from the film as a joke, but many people thought it was real, and believed that the Falcon was supposed to be destroyed at the end of ROTJ. The Official Site later debunked that rumor.

Now, what was this thread about, anyway?

Well can a mod lock this thread down? I had no idea was the "alternate workpring" ending was. Now I feel silly.




Damn Newbies.

I'm not doubting what's on the official or T-bone's site, but I have seen several bootleg sellers selling a disc of "Rare Footage" claiming to have three minutes of video from a workprint showing the alternate ending.

Obviously it's fake, but what actually is this footage?

Hey, my first post!

FYI, the ROJ alternate working ending is available on the DVD-ROM content of Deleted Magic.

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?

I've got that disc downloaded, just haven't unpacked it yet. I'll have to take a look.

Uh... How about checking out MY first post in this thread. I already explained what this footage is.
