    Missing Deleted Scene on DVD???

    Wasn't there supposed to be a deleted scene when Ben shows Qui-Gon his saber and it's shorted-out from being in the water (right after they disembark form the Droid Landing Ships)? I remember it in the book. And if that were so, then the deleted waterfall scene would have shorted-out both there sabers. Now if that scene was reincorporated back into the film, then they couldn't have saved the Queen, Panka, and all those other guys (maybe) when they were escorted by those droids. Makes ya' think.

    I think the lightsaber only shorts out underwater if it's ignited. If it is shut off then it shouldn't short out. Maybe it was left out to prevent questions being asked about Obi-Wan's fight with Jango in the rain in Ep2.

    It had something to do with the power cell being left on, not actually being ignited. It's another scene that deserved to be in the movie, since it would have made it clear why Obi-Wan just sat back like a lame-duck when the STAPs showed up.

    Yeah, we're missing that scene, and it was DEFINITELY filmed because there are stills of it on the net.

    Also, I'm told the DVD is missing the scene in the Tatooine desert where Qui-Gon jumps up on the ramp of the Royal Starship as it's taking off, Maul jumps up behind him, and Qui-Gon force-pushes him back off. These are 2 of the scenes I wanted to see the most.

    The Obi-Wan swamp scene is in one of the documentary pieces... you see Ewan submerged in a water tank and then surfacing.

    The Artoo scene is in part of the blooper reel... Artoo falls over the ledge, causing a loud crash and Liam and Jake start snickering. You can also see the Artoo with the booster rockets in view during "The Beginning"- I think. They have two Artoos... one is one the floor and another is being hoisted up on wires.

    And there's a still in the still image gallery of Qui-Gon and Maul fighting on the ramp of the Royal Starship. The actual scene was QuiGon cuts off half of the ramp that Maul is standing on...


    Question. There's an Image of George Lucas in the background of theed palace somewhere. Now that we have DVD, could someone give me the timecode coordinates when this shows up? I've never been able to find it, but now that we have digital clarity and I have zoom features on my DVD, I want to see it for myself. Thanks.

    I don't have the DVD in front of me at the moment, but I know the scene you're talking about. It's toward the end of the movie when the queen and panaka enter the palace's upper level using the acension guns. When they are seen entering the hallway, there is a faint, slightly out-of-focus, picture of Lucas up by the ceiling. It's in a scene before they get surrounded by droidekas. It's probably much easier to see on DVD being clearer than on VHS.

    If I remember correctly, wasn't there a scene filmed with Bail Organa in it?

    Yeah, they filmed Adrian Dunbar the Irish actor and mate of Liam Neeson's doing the senate stuff. We should have seen a senate pod with Him, Agrippa Aldrete and Liana Merian. The delegation from Alderaan. Unfortunately poor old Adrian didn't have a very good American accent and his acting style wasn't dynamic enough for Lucas. Also his costume sucked. So he went the way of the cutting room floor.

    With Jimmy Smits due to play Bail Organa in EP2 it's probably not included so as not to confuse folk. And also to make Jimmy look fresher. It's tough when an actor replaces another, the audience take a while to warm to the new actor and so maybe miss what's being said or conveyed. It's easier to just leave out the Adrian Dunbar parts and let us the audience learn to accept Jimmy as Bail Organa without the performance of Adrian getting in the way.

    If the rumours of another disk of cut stuff is true then these scenes may make it to release after all. If that's so, then with recordable DVD technology we could start to see more and more phantom edits with some interesting cuts and insertions.....
