Ever since Star Wars: Episode VI The Return of the Jedi was released in 1983,
rumors have run rampant of a scene where Luke is constructing his new lightsaber
in a cave on Tatooine that ended up on the cutting room floor.
Like Big Foot, the mystery surrounding this ""missing scene""
was so intriguing that it had become lore to Star Wars fans the world over.
A lot of research by fans has been done, little tid-bits of information were
found that may indicate the existence of this elusive scene, but nothing definitive.
Even the storyboard that describes this scene was discovered, but there was
still no evidence of the scene actually being filmed.
Many believe that the lightsaber that may have been used in this scene was the
lightsaber that is referred to as the ""MOM"" lightsaber,
which is the one that was on display at the Star Wars: The Magic of Myth exhibit
at the National Air and Space Museum in 1997-1999 and then in the touring exhibit.
This lightsaber had an accessible control box with a removable PCB cover. It
also had a hole near the pommel for possibly the wires.
Fast forward 27+ years, August 14, 2010 . . . Star Wars: Celebration V in Orlando,
Florida. The mystery of the elusive ""missing scene"" was
finally solved and to the thunderous applause of the crowd, it was shown and
announced that it will be edited back in the long awaited Blu-Ray Discs of the
Star Wars Saga!
