DAYTON, Ohio (DDN) -- Watch it you must! For the first time ever, fans of the classic sci-fi movie can get a glimpse at outtakes from the original "Star Wars", now known as "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope."
The previously unseen footage includes Peter Chushing (Grand Moff Tarkin to you "Star Wars" fanatics) joking around with Princess Leia (also known as Carrie Fisher).
