Two minutes and 36 seconds. That’s how much never-before-seen footage of “Star Wars” bloopers was posted to YouTube Sunday, getting more than a million views in just a couple of days.
There’s just something particularly delightful about seeing Stormtroopers tripping, actors messing up lines and costumes breaking in such an iconic film.
Watch the clips (Note: some of the footage does not have audio):
The footage uploaded by YouTube user Neil Bowyer comes from a new eBook on Amazon’s Kindle called “The Making of Star Wars” by J. W. Rinzler. The electronic form of the book, which includes new behind-the-scenes video and interviews with the cast and crew, is a re-release, enhanced after this digital content was found in the Lucasfilm archives.
“In my opinion the new digital edition of the book is worth every penny to the ‘Star Wars’ fan looking for a rare glimpse behind the scenes of the films they love like myself,” Bowyer wrote in his description of the blooper video.
