Star Wars: Leftovers - A Collection of Raw Footage and Deleted Scenes (Released)



Star Wars: Leftovers is a collection that includes every piece of unused and deleted footage from Star Wars (1977) from a variety of sources. I’ve searched far and wide to collate every sliver and every frame and line that has not been used in any version of the film.

SW: Leftovers features raw footage shot on set without sound design, visual effects or any finalised editing. Some sections do feature John William’s score in sections where it would have of been silent, as the original source either had no sound or narration from Empire of Dreams.

This only includes genuine footage that was shot for the film, and not behind the scenes material or on-set B-Roll. It also doesn’t incorperate the footage into the film itself like “the lost cut” but presents all the footage on its own as a sort of long form compilation.

Runtime is 43 minutes and 49 seconds.

Here are the first 5 minutes



  • Empire of Dreams (Dream Edition as made by Neothebird based on a Blu-Ray Screener)
  • The Making of Star Wars by JW Rinzer (eBook clips used)
  • The Birth of the Lightsaber Featurette (2004 Box Set Bonus Material Disc)
  • Original Trilogy Outtakes (2004 Box Set Bonus Material Disc Easter Egg)
  • Discoveries from Inside: Hologram & Bloopers (2019 Revenge of the Sith Blu-Ray)
  • Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Episode I-III Archive Disc (Ewan Macgregor Interview)
  • Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Episode IV-VI Archive Disc (featurettes listed)
  • Aboard the Death Star Overview, Battle of Yavin Overview, Holochess Set (from 2011 BR Saga)
  • Deleted Scenes (from 2011 BR Saga)
  • The Skywalker Legacy (Rise of Skywalker Bonus Disc Documentary)
  • From Star Wars to Jedi (16mm Scan by TN1)
  • THX Wow! Laserdisc (1990 Lucasfilm Demo Disc)
  • Revenge of the Sith Teaser (an upscaled SD version and a 35mm TN1 scan were combined)
  • Star Wars Celebration 2017 (footage of Gold Leader outtakes and the extended DS conference cleaned up by Jamie Benning)
  • Star Wars: Behind the Magic CD-Rom (brief clips from the Cantina)
  • Star Wars: 2011 and 2019 Blu-Ray discs (used to recontruct Jabba scene)
  • Star Wars: 4k77 v1.4 no-DNR (borrowed opening fanfare)

These were only used for the Jabba scene, as I couldn’t source much of the Declan Mullholland footage myself

  • Star Wars: Deleted Magic (Garrett Gilchrist Documentary)
  • Star Wars Begins (Jamie Benning Documentary)

good you should work on a extended version of the movies…😃


will there be follow empire and jedi?


Wow, it looks great!
And how does one watch it? Can you send me a link?


Great stuff, can’t wait for the full release. 😃 Also, I never get tired of hearing Dave as Vader.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.


I would love a link to this!

Huge respect your way for completing such an impressive project!

My homeworld is Australia so be wary of timezones!


fantastic idea !, I’ve always looked for compilations with unreleased footage, but never found it. Can you send me the link?


Very cool stuff… can’t wait to see what fan editors do with this treasure trove!



I’ve gone back and made a minor update to the project, adding a few things I had forgotten from The Making of Star Wars. I’m using willarob’s HD Upscale since it looks arguably better than the 2 16mm scans that have been done. The post-credits scene from Empire of Dreams has been added too “may the force go with you” as I had forgotten it existed.

An alternate audio track has been created too, with no added score in places, so for scenes with no production sound, it will now be silent. The default track still includes John Williams in these silent areas though.

The same link will now work with the updated version.

Also as always, please send me a message instead of posting in the thread.


you should update your description.
btw,good work.
