It’s been 30 years since Return of the Jedi hit our cinema screens.

This shot was taken from a deleted scene which saw our heroes regroup after the sequence at Jabba’s Palace.

On what was the first day of shooting at Elstree Studios, the scene was ultimately replaced by a sequence which saw Luke talking to Han and Leia from his X-Wing before he departed for Dagobah.

More can be learned about this scene and the production of Return of the Jedi from this book.
