Unedited Star Wars Cantina Scene

This is the complete scene of the original Cantina scene from the first cut of Star Wars, as compiled by John Jympson, who was later dismissed from the project and all scenes were re-edited.

This “official unedited Cantina scene” from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope featured a rarely-seen footage, including Han Solo (Harrison Ford) getting close with a female companion before meeting Luke (Mark Hamill) and Obi-Wan (Alec Guinness).

However, the footage is rather raw, with some bits of sound missing, including the infamous Cantina Band tune, along with sound effects, and the footage has not been color corrected. Still, it’s well worth watching to see some of the creatures in the Cantina that weren't in the final cut, along with alternate dialogue in the Han/Greedo confrontation and Han praising Obi-Wan's handiwork with the light saber.

Of course, this raw footage doesn’t exactly give fans an answer to the age-old question: who shot first, Han or Greedo?
