Charlie Owen has made available the complete 30 minutes long, fully restored EditDroid Laserdisc Return of the Jedi raw footage. in 1983, Lucasfilm created a new video editing system called EditDroid. A laserdisc with 30 mins of raw footage from Return of the Jedi was used to demo the EditDroid system at a convention in Las Vegas in 1984. The laserdisc was lost and was never seen again until now.
Charlie says: "The footage here is uncropped and in it's entirety including all off-camera audio with multiple angles of Scene 50 between Luke and Yoda on Dagobah - especially the very important dialogue at 5:10! I have also cleaned up some artifacts and polished up the interlace issues that you get when converting most laserdiscs. I have also upscaled to 1080p so you can view the video as large as possible without serious degradation."
