The first Star Wars hit theaters in 1977 has entertained generations of science-fiction fans since then.
But in all of those years, fans have never seen any outtakes or bloopers from the filming... until now.
J.W. Rinzler, an author and editor of Star Wars books uncovered the footage while digging through the Lucasfilm archives for his "The Making of Star Wars" e-book.
Rinzler screened the footage for a small audience at Comic-Con, the first time it had been seen in 36 years.
Now the clips have surfaced on YouTube.
Watch them (while you can) below... (note, there is no audio during the first 50 seconds):
