"I'm Luke Starkiller, I'm here to rescue you"

So this was the original line when meeting Leia, and the film must exist somewhere. Why hasn’t it been included in deleted scenes or making-of docs? It would be interesting to see for sure.

I’ve heard that the script was changed during shooting to alter Luke’s last name to Skywalker. The revised surname wasn’t added in pickups, it was part of principal photography.

However, I’d be extremely curious to know if there was alternate footage with the original name.

There are also alternate takes several Tatooine scenes with Luke wearing a poncho, and not wearing the yellow jacket during the Yavin medal ceremony. But info about these is strangely hard to find, even when almost every other aspect of SW has been talked to death.

“That Darth Vader, man. Sure does love eating Jedi.”

His memory has failed him maybe once or twice in 40 years when it comes to the making of the films, or he misremembered something. But for the most part he is usually correct even when he does not know what a character is called or what a prop was called.

The most notorious example i can think of is him thinking he yelled Carrie on Star Wars. Or claiming the scene with him building the lightsaber was never shot on Return of the Jedi. And having to be corrected by Tony Daniels who remembered it was shot.

Over all i think Mark Hamill is a pretty great guy and is allowed to have an imperfect memory.

I will never forget the kindness he showed me when he responded to a letter i sent him and sent me an autograph in the 1990s.

I guess it could just be a “yay” or something like that, but it really does sound a lot like “Carrie” to me. And as far as slip-ups go it makes a lot of sense.

I’ve always heard it as “hey” and it never sounded otherwise to me. I think different people are just going to hear different things.
