The second episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian features a lot of clips from the OT. Seems to be SE footage mostly but they included the original death star explotion. I wonder what the source for this clip was.

My thought was either the GOUT or a shot from the Making of Documentary, since shots from that documentary used in this episode of The Gallery seem to be of a similar resoultion.

It was in widescreen though. Isn’t the making of star wars 4:3?

I think he’s referring to the documentary “Empire of Dreams”, which premiered on the 2004 DVD set and is also streaming on Disney +. If you’ve never watched it, you should. It’s excellent 😃.

Oh I’ve seen it, several times in fact. It is indeed exellent. But didn’t that use footage from the 1997 version, not the original version?
