    I have a recollection of watching the original 1977 movie and seeing a portraying Jabba in the hanger scene with Han Solo. The scene was definitely updated with CGI in the 1997 re-release which I watched in t cinema.

    I had first seen the original movie long ago on TV when I was young, so it's been a while. I don't remember seeing that. Interesting.

    I don't remember Jabba the Hut ever appaering as human.. When did that happen?

    I've also wondered if the 'humans' in Star Wars were really supposed to b human. If it takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far away, what are chances they'd be human? But there's a scene in Empire Strikes Back wher C-3PO refers to Luke Skylwalker (I think) as a human.. I wondered what t story was about how humans came from that galaxy to our galaxy.

    Earth, to my knowledge, is not a place that's noted in the galaxy maps in th Star Wars universe... I've always thought of it as an alternate universe or something rather than one parallel to ours.


    I forgot what it is called, but there is a phenomenon where people whave seen the outtake material at a leter time, but recall seeing it in the theatres. Since it was cut and abandoned, there was no possible way for it to have been released. A similar experiment was conducted where a group of people sat
    down as individuals and watched a staged even that was intended to look like security camera footage. There were several smaller story arcs going on with people in the parking lot, but the main event was an incident beween two drive rs fighting over a parking spot. The video is the constant or control, and the variable was ringer in the bunch that was seeding fake inofrmation or changing arounf vehicle colors or orders of the events. when interviewed alone, each person was asked what they saw, and some of them claimed they saw or noticed the smaller details the ringer introduced tot he story. When
    given a chance to view the video again, they would claim the video was edited.

    Battlestar Galactica, the 1978 series especially took the more direct
    approach to the Chariot of the Gods concept mixed with Mormonism to imply humans on Earth were the space equivalent of the 13th tribe of Israelites
    that crossed the ocean rather than follow Moses. That may be where some of
    us older folk may think there was a relationship between Star Wars and
    humans of Earth.

    Glenn Larsen floated the idea of a BSG prequel that takes place during the Exodus from Kobol dealing primarily with the colony ship named Atlantia. It crashes in the ocean or a small island, and becomes the basis of a colony
    named Atlantis.

    When ANH was filmed, there is a scene that is filmed where Jabba is waiting o utside of Han's ship asking for his money. This was filmed wi a human actor playing Jabba as originally planned. This was cut from th original release, then put back in the digitally enhanced re-releases, except the CGI version of Jabba is overlayed on the actor. They also ha to edit when Ha n walks behind Jabba so it appears he steps on his tail rather than walk through the spot his tail should be.

    Ah, I remember hearing about that, and I remember seeing that scene with the

    Behind the scene footage was released on TV specials over the years and on
    box sets and the internet. Another scene that has become popular is when Luke
    goes to Tosche station and learns his buddy Biggs Darklighter had graduated Imperial Academy and is jumping a freighter to join the Rebellion. Two of Luke's friends, Cammy and Fixer are there and show up again in a scene on the Book of Boba Fett at Tosche station.

    It was cut from the original movie... the clip was definitely online
    pretty early in internet age. It was first added with the special
    effects remaster and a cgi character with DVD. the CGI for Jabba in
    episode 4 was done for each re-release (including online for Disney+).
